As the only two Chester players who have "been there before," Darrin Govens and Shakiyl Reid seemed to have clearly defined roles going into their senior seasons. Govens was the sleek point guard who could light it up from anywhere on the floor, while Reid was the physical force underneath who could rebound and defend. Perhaps their scripted roles haven't changed, but in tucking away Penn Manor, 68-42, in a PIAA Class AAAA state tournament opener yesterday at Norristown, the performances of Reid and Govens illustrated how much the Clippers have developed in a short time.

Several Penn Manor students were ejected from the PIAA Class AAAA boys' basketball quarterfinal game between the Comets and Simon Gratz on March 14 at Coatesville. According to Coatesville athletic director Brian Chenger, three or four male Penn Manor students were thrown out by security after repeated warnings to end their taunting of Gratz players during the game. The students were seated in the Penn Manor student section close to the court and across from the team benches. Some of the insults were believed to include racial slurs.

The Council Rock girls' soccer team has a pretty good idea of what it will be up against when it plays for the PIAA state championship tomorrow. That's because the Indians, who will face Penn Manor at 11 a.m. at HersheyPark Stadium, met the District 3 champion earlier this season. On March 23, in the season opener for both squads, Council Rock recorded a 1-0 victory. Junior Arya Hariharan, a reserve forward, provided the winning goal in a game dominated by defense. "Both of us defend pretty well," Council Rock coach Jim Dunn said.

Penn Manor is District 1's daddy. In all three of their state playoff games, the Comets faced a District 1 foe, and in each game, they won. In the first round, Penn Manor topped North Penn over two rain-delayed days, 4-0. In the quarterfinals, they held on under lightning skies to defeat Neshaminy, 8-6. And in last night's PIAA Class AAAA semifinals, Penn Manor silenced West Chester East, 5-0, at muggy Spring-Ford High School to advance...

With two iron-willed teams refusing to give up much ground in the PIAA state girls' soccer championship game yesterday, overtime was inevitable. And since PIAA rules do not allow for a shoot-out in the final, the 30 minutes of sudden death played between Council Rock and Penn Manor were filled with a sense of extreme urgency. Neither squad wilted. The result was a 1-1 tie at sun-splashed HersheyPark Stadium and the crowning of cochampions for the first time in the 10-year history of the spring soccer tournament.

Penn Manor threw a triangle-and-two defense at Penn Wood, with the goal of keeping 6-foot-5 swingman Aaron Brown and 6-9, 250-pound center Shawn Oakman from enjoying major dominance. That opened the door for Tyree Johnson, normally the set-the-table guy, and he gladly entered. Johnson rang up 26 of his career-high 31 points in the first two quarters as Penn Wood erased an early deficit and romped, 76-57, in a PIAA Class AAAA first-round playoff yesterday at Norristown. Among Johnson's baskets was a halftime buzzer-beater from beyond the half-court stripe.

The Council Rock South girls' soccer team gathered on the red synthetic track yesterday at Exeter High - reflecting rather than rejoicing. "Everybody in here," head coach Jim Dunn said. "Hold your heads high. You had a terrific season. " Under a scorching sun and in 90-degree heat, the Golden Hawks concluded their season with a 1-0 loss to Penn Manor in the semifinals of the PIAA girls' state soccer tournament. Penn Manor will face Emmaus on Friday in Hershey for the state championship.

Shelby Reese said she was simply in the right place at the right time - twice. The Council Rock back scored two goals yesterday to lead the Indians to a 3-0 victory over Penn Manor in a PIAA state quarterfinal girls' soccer game at Neshaminy High. With the win, Council Rock, the District 1 champion, advanced to the state semifinals Tuesday at a neutral site. The Indians will face Ephrata, which prevailed, 2-0, yesterday in a quarterfinal match over Northwestern Lehigh. It was the first two-goal game of the season for Reese.

JENNIFER AND GEORGE FOSTER aren't the least bit sheepish about feeding animals at Penn Manor in Tullytown. The children, 2 and 3, respectively, attended an open house Monday at the summer home of William Penn along the Delaware River. There were demonstrations of chair-weaving and cooking and opportunities to enjoy flowers and scenery.

St. Basil's Karen Lapkiewicz played all five positions, scored 20 points, and even guarded the opposition's two best players as the Panthers topped York Catholic, 46-42, Tuesday night in a PIAA Class AA second-round game at Coatesville. "She did everything but drive the bus for us," St. Basil coach Terry Mancini said. Which is lucky for Lapkiewicz, because it was likely a fun ride home. York Catholic knocked the Panthers out of the state semifinals two years ago. Lapkiewicz made sure history would not repeat itself.

Meredith Lee of Owen J. Roberts carried the banner for District 1 singles players at the PIAA state tennis championships Friday at the Hershey Racquet Club. Lee, the third seed from District 1, won two matches to advance to the semifinals of the Class AAA tournament. Conestoga's doubles team of Kaylee Yan and Amy Zhang is the only other local entry in the Class AAA semifinals. Lee dropped just two games in her two matches. She beat Katina Jones of Penn Manor, 6-1, 6-0, in the first round and took down State College's Yvonne Peters, 6-1, 6-0, in the quarterfinals.

Florence's Lexi Smith, who broke her aunt's school record in field hockey when she scored 52 goals last season, could make national history this season. "Ever since I started playing in high school, it was sort of a personal goal to beat my aunt's record," Smith said. "I would like to break the national record this year. " Smith has 12 goals in four games this season and 149 in her career, 25 shy of the national record set by Sharon Landau of Rye Neck (Mamaroneck, N.Y.) in 1985. Smith's 52 goals last year surpassed the single-season school mark of 46 set in 1992 by her aunt, Diane Carey-Stranko.

Morgan Glassford got loose for the final goal of the game and Laura Rowan won the ensuing draw, allowing Strath Haven to run out the clock on an 8-7 victory over Conestoga in the quarterfinals of the PIAA state girls' lacrosse tournament Saturday at West Chester East.
