About an hour before Wednesday night's game, Rowan men's basketball coach Joe Cassidy sat with his former assistant, Rutgers-Camden coach Jason Curbison. "We kind of looked at each other and said, 'Now what?' " Cassidy recalled. That's the big question, from an athletic standpoint, about the proposed merger of Rowan and Rutgers-Camden that was announced Wednesday afternoon by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Will Rowan and Rutgers-Camden remain as separate athletic programs, both of which compete in the New Jersey Athletic Conference at the Division III (non-scholarship)

Anthony Fratanduono ran the 100 meters for the first time last Saturday at the Bensalem Invitational. The Archbishop Ryan senior didn't use starting blocks. It wasn't a preference or a superstition - he just didn't know how to use them. The first-time sprinter ran 11.1 seconds in the preliminary round. Before the finals, Fratanduono received a quick lesson on the blocks from coach Ed Ulmer. He responded by breaking Bill Bell's 43-year-old school record with a time of 10.83 seconds.

A Neshaminy High School sophomore and athlete has been seriously injured in Saturday night's bus accident in Boston, friends said. Matt Cruz reportedly underwent a second surgery Sunday morning, following one Saturday night, said Allan Brown, 16, who said he has known Cruz since they were in elementary school together. When Brown first got a call Saturday night about the accident, he said he didn't expect Cruz to be badly hurt. "After that, I called some friends; they were letting me know that he had serious injuries and was undergoing surgery," Brown said.

Two classmates lost their lives last month. Now, the Neshaminy High School community is again shaken, this time over the terrifying bus crash Saturday night in Boston that injured dozens of students and chaperones from a variety of Bucks County schools and that left a Neshaminy sophomore athlete in critical condition. Matt Cruz, 16, of Penndel, was on the Calvary Coach headed back to Bucks from a visit to Harvard University when it struck an overpass, injuring more than 30 of the 42 aboard.

Jermaine Halsey made a pact with himself before this outdoor track season. The reason: The Penn Wood senior remembers the feeling of looking out the window of a shadowy gym as the Penn Wood girls were boarding the bus for the state outdoor track championships last spring. It's a feeling Halsey vows he will not experience again this year. And if what he achieved this indoor season is any indication, it's likely Halsey will be getting on that bus this time around. Halsey pulled off what some thought was a mild upset when he won the 800-meter state indoor championship, defeating Cheltenham's Tim Gerhardt, who had entered with a state-best time of 1 minute, 55.6 seconds.

The way Emma Dewart breezed around the track Wednesday in the 800 meters, the final event of the grueling two-day heptathlon at the Penn Relays, one would never know she has battled pneumonia and bronchitis for a good portion of the outdoor track and field season. Dewart, a senior from Ithaca College, crossed the line in 2 minutes, 23.44 seconds and finished with a winning total of 5,006 points, just nine off of her career best. Richard Roethel of Christopher Newport also came close to his personal best total in capturing the decathlon with 6,971 points.

The outdoor track season is officially opening, and Central Bucks East's jigsaw puzzle is being pieced together. When the Patriots face Council Rock in a dual meet this afternoon, coach Paul Wilson will be adding two pieces from the basketball team and one from the wrestling team to help make his track team whole. Mike Enwright ran several times during the indoor season when there was no conflict with basketball, but Bryan Scott and John Schumann will be getting onto the track for the first time after a winter on the court and the mat, respectively.

Wissahickon's Gina Bundy will be expected to do many things for the Trojans this spring, but the outdoor track season is far off and coach Mike Walker is taking it easy on her. For now. At the Delaware Valley Girls' Track Coaches Association meet at Haverford College last Thursday, Bundy tossed the shot 34 feet to place second, 7 inches behind Springfield's Chris Heffernan. Bundy can do it all and will be asked to do a lot. She is the best sprinter and hurdler on the team and excels in the long jump and triple jump.

It wasn't a big request, but it had a major effect. Harry Lewis Jr., Coatesville's track and field coach, asked Terry Moore to time a fellow student in the mile for gym class. Instead of using a stopwatch from a school drawer, Lewis handed Moore one of his precious Penn Relays watches. "I wanted one of those," Moore said. Lewis, a Coatesville graduate, owns two. One he won with Winston-Salem State's shuttle-hurdles relay team in 1962, and the second he earned as an honorary meet referee.

Arkansas' renowned track and field program lost two national men's outdoor team championships yesterday when the NCAA imposed stiff sanctions for violations involving star sprinter Tyson Gay and a former assistant coach. The Razorbacks lost the 2004 and '05 titles and also received three years' probation. University chancellor John White said the school planned to appeal. Arkansas had self-reported violations committed by former assistant Lance Brauman, who was convicted last year of embezzlement, theft and mail fraud.

One list is official, and one isn't. Both include just a few esteemed entries. And both put Nicole Leach's amazing track and field career at West Catholic High in proper perspective. With several major meets left on her schedule this summer, Leach's personal best in the 400-meter hurdles (57.44 seconds) is tied for the fifth-fastest ever in high school girls' track and field, according to Track & Field News. The clocking came at the Penn Relays on April 29, which she won for the second straight year with a meet record.

Penn's Brian Chaput and Sam Burley shattered 29 years of track and field precedent last week when each topped the field in his specialty at the NCAA championships in Sacramento, Calif. Beginning today, they will take on a more daunting challenge at the U.S. outdoor championships at Stanford University. It had been nearly three decades since any member of the Quakers' track and field team had won an individual title in the NCAA championships. But that streak ended on Friday night when Chaput, a junior from East Haven, Conn.

The NCAA yesterday announced major changes in its outdoor track and field championships. The association will establish four regional qualifying meets and, under the change approved by university presidents, the number of competitors in the championship meet will rise by 40 percent from the current 388 to 544. Supporters of the change say it will give the championship experience to many more athletes and reduce the practice of sending competitors...
