Hillary Clinton has been a part of national life for so long, known to haters and admirers alike by first name alone, that it was almost easy to overlook the monumental nature of her impending accomplishment. Not anymore. After voters Tuesday cemented her status as the first woman to clinch the presidential nomination of a major political party, millions of women reveled in Hillary's historic moment. They let their young daughters stay up late to watch on TV, felt a certain catch in their throat, and perhaps, like Clinton herself, wished their own mothers had been alive to witness it. "First time since 1789 - that's a long time," said Rita Conley, 75, a former Democratic committeewoman, who lives in North Wales, Montgomery County.

Some new coaches will be present at Franklin Field this week amid all the teams competing at all levels at the 122nd Penn Relays. But it's a safe bet that very few are happier than Mike Smith, the first-year director of track and field at Georgetown and a former Hoya runner who clocked a personal-best time at Penn in the 5,000 meters in the early 2000s. "I've got fond memories of that venue as an athlete," Smith said this week, "and it's an honor to come back, given Georgetown has such a rich history at the Penn Relays, to lead them as coach.

THERE SHOULD be gray in his beard. That's the immediate thought when Michael Del Zotto finishes detailing his NHL journey so far, and particularly the leg that has led him here. Worry, doubt, uncertainty, and the cracks in confidence they combined to produce - well, if such things truly did influence the color of one's hair, he might closely resemble the most interesting man in the world by now. But he's still only 25. The beard is all dark brown. Seven-and-a-half years into a hockey career that has been filled with both promise and disappointment, that has wowed and waned at various junctures, the Flyers defenseman finds himself, in the first year of a career-settling, two-year contract, playing a role on ice and off that only a couple of seasons ago would have been unimaginable to anyone, including him. He tries to shut down the best players on the other team.

Long has made the most of his opportunity, leading Lenape to a 4-0 record and the No. 6 spot in the Inquirer Top 25 rankings.

Walk into The Keeper Institute and there's no sign of what the director and founder has accomplished. No big posters on the wall of the four years spent representing the United States. No mention of placing second in the 2011 World Cup, or the gold medal finish in the 2012 Summer Olympics. No trace of the fact that she played with and against some of the best in the world. You'd be forgiven for thinking this Sewell warehouse was just another place for local soccer players to practice.

Fallout from the primary election continued across the Philadelphia suburbs Wednesday as some candidates prepared to challenge close results and others celebrated or reeled from upsets. In Coatesville, two judicial candidates said they would pursue complaints against the primary winner, incumbent Magisterial District Judge Grover Koon, over his campaign conduct. Jacquelyn Carter said Koon distributed mailers with confidential information about a protection-from-abuse-order she had obtained - in a case in which Koon presided.

The tradition dates back decades: Midway through election days, politicians and movers and shakers from across Philadelphia make their way to tables at the Famous 4th Street Deli in South Philly, and Relish in the Northwest. This time, the talk over lunch was of a landslide in the making. At the Famous, guests were greeted by cutouts of the day's eventual big winner - former City Councilman James F. Kenney, running for mayor - and of Kevin Dougherty, who late Tuesday was well ahead in his run for a state Supreme Court nomination.

Brandon Hamilton sees himself as an "underdog. " His whole team will fit that description Friday night. Hamilton and his Paulsboro teammates know they are widely regarded as little more than a speed bump in top-ranked Roselle Catholic's anticipated drive to another Tournament of Champions title. But Hamilton, the Red Raiders' senior guard, has heard that kind of talk in the past. "We were supposed to be underdogs in this game, right?" Hamilton said after Paulsboro's imposing 90-65 victory over Group 3 champion Bergenfield in the T of C quarterfinals Wednesday night.
