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.

Penn Charter made clear early on in its 43-34 win over visiting Notre Dame on Monday that this meeting wouldn't be the same as their first. Notre Dame had taken both games between the two during the Inter-Ac regular season. But this contest, a quarterfinal of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Tournament, went differently right from the start. Playing tight man-to-man defense, third-seeded Penn Charter held No. 6 Notre Dame to one field goal - a three pointer - in the first half, and built a 22-11 lead.

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.

In the last few years of Penn Charter basketball, it's been "In Sam we trust. " Sam Zeglinski, the Quakers' pistol of a point guard, has been the go-to guy for both teammates and opponents alike. The trust, however, had to extend from both directions, especially after Penn Charter suffered through a brutal nonleague schedule. It was brutal because of the high level of competition and because the talented Quakers went a disappointing 5-10. But the Inter-Ac League began its season yesterday, and Zeglinski showed chunks full of trust as he and his teammates steamrollered over Episcopal Academy, 59-39, in the final game of a tripleheader at Arcadia University.
