After the game, as he usually does, Episcopal coach Dan Dougherty brought up a point. It was his team's 20th game since Dec. 1, Dougherty noted, yet it was only the second of 12 to be played in the Inter-Ac League, the championship of which is Episcopal's primary goal. By the time it is over, the Churchmen will have played 30 games, more than a third of an NBA regular-season schedule. "We ask kids to come out every night ready to play, but we have to keep that in perspective," Dougherty said.

Any lingering issues have been resolved. That is the reason Penn Charter boys' basketball coach Jim Phillips made it a point to thank guard Sean Singletary last night as Singletary left the locker room after the Quakers' 70-61 win at Cardinal Dougherty. The Quakers played their first game since a frustrating 21-point loss Saturday to St. Joseph's Prep. "We had a little issue earlier this week," Phillips said. "Any good team goes through it. Maybe it was a residual thing from Saturday.

Twelve-time defending Inter-Ac League champion Germantown Academy, facing what many people said would be its toughest bid in years to retain its title, showed Friday night it was every bit as ready to face the challenge. With four players hitting double figures to lead the way, the Patriots turned back Penn Charter - the team given a good chance at dethroning the Patriots - 65-46 on the Quakers' home floor. Kiernan McCloskey and Jaryn Garner each had 14 points to lead the Patriots' double-figure hit parade.

With time running down in the first quarter of yesterday's high school basketball game between Penn Charter and St. John Neumann, the Quakers' Sean Singletary dribbled the ball upcourt, glanced quickly at the clock and heaved a three-pointer from near halfcourt. Singletary was fouled hard and crashed to the floor, but not before the ball swished through the net. His teammates mobbed the junior, and a host of college recruiters smiled and scribbled in their notebooks. That is the reason Singletary transferred from Perkiomen School to Penn Charter.

Liz Flemming spoke as if her team didn't have a chance. Never mind that several of the Academy of Notre Dame's marquee runners weren't competing. Flemming, the girls' track coach at Penn Charter, just couldn't visualize her Quakers winning the Inter-Ac girls' championships. She was wrong. After scoring 139 points Saturday at its home track, Penn Charter celebrated its second title in three seasons. Episcopal Academy (101 points) was a distant second. Notre Dame (60) was third.

Brian McCloskey is on a one-year contract as Penn Charter's football coach. Well, it's not exactly a contract. It's more like an interim appointment while athletic director Bill Gallagher takes a coaching hiatus. "He'll be back next year," McCloskey said of Gallagher. "He's still the head football coach. " When McCloskey goes back to his assistant's job next season, he will have something special to remember of his time at the top: yesterday's 23-10 victory over Episcopal Academy, the prohibitive preseason favorite to win the Inter-Ac title this year.

Watching Jlon Flippens play for the Penn Charter girls' soccer team, there are many things you notice about her game. There's her speed, prevalent both on and off the ball. Then there are her technical skill and impeccable touch. There's a reason the sophomore plays for the under-15 national team. But during Tuesday's dominating 7-1 win over Episcopal Academy in an Inter-Ac League game, Flippens demonstrated that her most impressive skill might be decision-making, not scoring goals - although her knack for that is a sight to behold.

Joe Larkin was patient and waited for his golden arm to find its rhythm. After Penn Charter's sophomore lefthander hit two of his first three batters, went wild on two throws, and buried three pitches in the dirt in the first inning of yesterday's Inter-Ac opener against Episcopal Academy, he went on to tally his fourth win in four starts. With Larkin striking out seven batters and allowing only three hits, the Quakers came from behind to defeat Episcopal, 13-4, at Penn Charter.

It did not matter who you were for the Archbishop Ryan girls' basketball team Friday. You were going to shoot if you had the basketball behind the three-point line. And chances were, the shot would fall. Whether the player shooting from beyond the arc was a starting guard such as Shayna Rodriguez, a starting forward such as Danielle Skedzielewski, or a spark off the bench such as Megan McLaughlin, the three-pointer was Ryan's weapon of choice. It was certainly effective. The Ragdolls hit 10 of their 22 three-pointers and six players knocked down threes in Ryan's 52-49 nonleague win over Penn Charter.
