Two of The Inquirer's Top 10 football teams - No. 7 Norristown and No. 10 Plymouth-Whitemarsh - were scrambling yesterday to find new opponents after their scheduled games with Penn Charter were called off because of a conflict in eligibility rules. Norristown, which had been scheduled to visit Penn Charter today, could not find an official opponent, so it will scrimmage Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey. Plymouth-Whitemarsh, which was to meet Penn Charter at home on Sept. 29, is "desperately looking for a game," athletic director Charles Forster said.

Bill Michuda, whose teams won 20 games or more in his three seasons as basketball coach at Penn Charter, has resigned the position to seek a teaching job. Michuda, who served as a full-time substitute teacher last year at Lower Merion High, apparently is in line for a teaching and basketball coaching position at Souderton High. "Even if he doesn't get the Souderton job, Bill just felt it wasn't the best situation for our kids, (with his) having to come over from Lower Merion every day," Bill Gallagher, Penn Charter athletic director, said yesterday.

Central's Chris Bing was giving up only two inches to Penn Charter's Mike McGlinchey. It was the nearly 100-pound difference in weight that caused the most concern. "Yeah, it was hard," Bing said. "He's a big kid. I just tried to put my body on him, push him as far away from the basket as possible. " McGlinchey fared well Saturday, collecting 25 points for the hosts, but it was the rail-thin Bing and the visiting Lancers who prevailed, 59-42, in a nonleague basketball game. "I think I've got some scars after that," joked Bing, a 6-foot-7, 180-pound junior.

First-year Penn Charter baseball coach David Miller wants his players to take chances. And if someone makes a mistake in doing so, the Quakers, taking a cue from Louisiana State's vaunted program, are supposed to "flush it" and move on. "I think the kids kind of played like robots last season," Miller said. "They played a little too tight. Mistakes are going to happen. You have to learn from it and get better. " Continuing its turnaround from last season, Penn Charter, buoyed by 11 hits and a strong effort from freshman righthander Matt Gorman, easily downed Germantown Academy, 10-4, Thursday in an Inter-Ac League contest in Fort Washington.

It is hard to believe that a Penn Charter boys' basketball team that looked so dominant last night actually was struggling with a 6-6 record at one time this season. But that seems like ages ago to the Quakers, who rolled to a 69-44 Inter-Academic League victory at Episcopal Academy. The win was the seventh straight for streaking Penn Charter (13-6, 5-0), the defending league champion. Episcopal dropped to 15-3 overall, and 2-3 in the league. Penn Charter entered the game ranked sixth in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer.

Minutes after yesterday's 35-6 demolition of Valley Forge Military Academy, Penn Charter football coach Bill Gallagher admitted that he was worried before the game started. The reason? The Valley Forge game was sandwiched between last week's 14-7 non-league win over a tough Shawnee team from New Jersey and the start of the Inter-Ac League season next week against Malvern Prep. So if the Little Quakers were going to suffer a letdown, Gallagher feared this would be the week.

With his team facing one of the top quarterbacks in the area, Episcopal Academy coach Jim Auch couldn't have asked for more ideal weather Friday when the Churchmen went to Penn Charter. Overcast skies, steady rain and increasingly muddy conditions dictated a grind-it-out football game. But Auch watched in dismay as Episcopal (2-5-1 overall, 0-3 Inter-Ac) turned over the ball six times and played suspect defense in a 35-6 loss to the Quakers (7-0, 3-0). "I didn't have any visions of grandeur," Auch said.

OMAHA, Neb. - He is just 16 and these were his first U.S. Olympic trials, so while his fellow swimmers buzzed easily around the pool deck during warm-ups Wednesday night, Reece Whitley bent his 6-foot-8 frame low, leaned against the starting blocks, and closed his eyes. If it was a pregame prayer, it wasn't answered. Whitley, the rising - in several senses of that word - Penn Charter junior, who some in the swimming world suggest could one day be the greatest breaststroker ever, failed to qualify for the 200-meter breaststroke final, finishing sixth in his semifinal.

Eileen Hennessy needed to go for a run. Hours before, her Penn Charter softball team suffered its first loss of the season, a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat that Episcopal Academy won in walk-off fashion. The loss ruined the Quakers' chance at a perfect season and the opportunity to be the first team in league history to finish 12-0 in Inter-Ac play. And so, after "snapping" on her mother, Denise, during the car ride home and then talking about the game with her father, Jamie, the senior third baseman decided it would be best for her to go into her Chalfont neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia and jog a couple of miles.

Defenders who wield a long pole in lacrosse rarely get to wind up and whip a shot on goal. Haverford School senior defender Jack Marshall, however, got the opportunity on Wednesday in the third quarter of the Fords' 13-4 quarterfinal blowout of Penn Charter in the Inter-Ac Challenge at the Proving Grounds in Conshohocken. Marshall, who will play at High Point next year, had a running start before he wound up and fired from about 25 yards away from the goal. "It's fun to run down and get a shot," Marshall said.

Chances are that someone with a name like Blake Target has pretty good aim on the lacrosse field. On Friday, the sophomore attacker for Penn Charter scored three goals to help the visiting Quakers knock off rival Germantown Academy, 11-7. "It's always a really important win against them," he said. "It's a rival in the league. And it was a big one for us going into the Inter-Ac playoffs. " Perhaps Target's most important tally came with just 2.7 seconds left before the half. It gave Penn Charter (5-13, 4-6)

Former Roman Catholic football coach Joe McCourt recalled how Will Fuller's first three catches as a starter for the Cahillites went for touchdowns. Kevin Pelligrini, Malvern Prep's former football boss, remembered how Carl Nassib saved his best game for last with the Friars. Michael Hawkins, the last football coach at now-closed Germantown, recollected how Will Parks wasn't afraid of the coach's laser pointer during film sessions. After five former Philadelphia-area high school players were selected in the NFL draft last week, former coaches and family members reminisced about them while seeing a promising future for current area players.

Fittingly, running enthusiasts Crystal Burnick and Bob Bacon first met while picking up their bibs the night before a 5K race in North Wales five years ago. Then, after Bacon experienced heat exhaustion during the race and needed medical treatment afterward, Burnick sent him a text the next day to see how he was doing. "She won me over with that gesture," Bacon said with a laugh. The now-engaged couple from Skippack were all smiles on Sunday after Burnick won the women's division of the 37th annual Broad Street Run in 57 minutes, 7 seconds.

Penn Charter's Anastasia Lewis and Ava Nicolucci proved to be unsolvable for Shipley. The two pitchers combined for a no-hitter as the visiting Quakers defeated Shipley, 15-0, in a nonleague game Saturday. The home team's only baserunner came on the only walk Lewis allowed. Lewis also struck out four in three innings. Nicolucci pitched the final two frames. The Quakers' Faith Fenton hit a grand slam in the third inning. Ayanna Matthews also stood out at the plate, by going 3 for 3. In other nonleague softball action: Alyssa Michniewicz had a double, but visiting Conwell-Egan fell to Steinert, 12-2.

Episcopal Academy senior Julia Hondros may have noticed that the Churchmen left the door slightly ajar just before halftime against host Penn Charter on Tuesday afternoon. With just 2.3 seconds left in the half, however, Hondros nailed it shut for good. After Hannah Fox notched back-to-back goals for the previously undefeated Quakers, Hondros, a 5-foot-10 Brown recruit, rushed downfield and fired to give Episcopal a five-goal lead, which it parlayed into a 15-6 victory. "Clock awareness," said Hondros, who finished with four goals.
