THE LAST SUIT Adam Herr wore was an outward expression of the ideals he embodied - joy, generosity and love. The last suit Adam Herr wore was a Santa Claus suit.

What Cheyney's track teams lacked in points, the Wolves made up for in heart at the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference championships last weekend at Shippensburg University. The men's team finished with three points, and the women accumulated four. But coach Jewell Lyons saw some gritty performances from her teams. Robert Stevenson pulled his hamstring in the high jump but still competed in the 110-meter hurdles and finished in a fifth-place tie with a time of 15.30 seconds.

TALK ABOUT devotion! David McAllister and his family would travel 130 miles round-trip every Sunday from their home in Sinking Spring, Berks County, to South Philadelphia to attend church. But to be fair, David did warn the pastor of Solid Rock Baptist, at 19th and Federal, that he probably wouldn't show up if the Eagles were playing. Why the long trek to church? "He felt it was important to stay close to the community where he grew up," said his wife, Georgette. "And he wanted his family to be role models for the children of the old neighborhood.

It's much too early in her athletic career to compare Maisha Tyler to any world class athlete, but even her coaches at Merion Mercy Academy have told her she reminds them of Marion Jones. Jones is the world champion in the 100 meters, while Tyler's top achievements so far are PIAA District 1 and state Class AA championships. But similarities are apparent. Tyler and Jones are both sprinters and long jumpers. Both play basketball, and they even wear their hair in the same short, curly style.

Nothing seemed to go right for Abington's Carla Johnson yesterday at the PIAA state track and field championship meet at Shippensburg University. First, the defending AAA (large-school) state high-jump champion broke her umbrella and had no protection from the sun during the long competition. "Then my steps were all off," the senior said. "It was because the runway started on the grass. I just couldn't get them right. " Still, Johnson kept clearing height after height, and after she went 5 feet, 6 inches, only two competitors were left: Johnson and Punxsutawney's Becky Kaza.

Brandon Bing didn't want much. The Cheltenham senior's goal was just to run fast enough to get a college scholarship. Unfortunately for his competition, Bing accomplished much more than that. Bing went from running to keep in shape for football to being arguably the best high school track athlete in Pennsylvania. And he is, unquestionably, The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania boys' track and field athlete of the year. "I didn't expect all this stuff to happen," said Bing, who is headed to Rutgers on a full track scholarship.

The distances were an afterthought. Iyisha Weaver just wanted to pay tribute to Curtis Weaver, her late grandfather. And did she ever do it. Weaver won the PIAA District 12 Class AA girls' long jump, triple jump and high jump titles yesterday. The Paul Robeson standout produced a winning leap of 17 feet, 8 3/4 inches in the long jump at Germantown. Shali Muhammed of Sayre finished second in 17-2. Shalaya Sidney of Robeson was third in 16-6 1/4. Weaver later won her second consecutive district triple jump title in 36-11 1/4. She won the high jump at 5-0. The top two finishers in each event automatically qualify for next weekend's PIAA track and field championships at Shippensburg University.

An attorney representing Chester High School sprinter Jamar Kinder filed a complaint yesterday in Delaware County Court in an attempt to overturn a sanction that prohibits the sophomore from running in this weekend's state championships. Kinder, the defending state champion in the 100-meter dash, placed second in the 100 at last week's District 1 Class AAA track championships at Coatesville High, but was disqualified after several Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association officials heard him shout a profanity as he crossed the finish line.

If this were a Hollywood production, the scene would have been scored with slow yet inspirational music that built toward a stirring crescendo. This, however, was Shippensburg University. But the PIAA Track and Field Championships still had everything a movie needed Saturday, complete with a slow clap as Saahir Bethea prepared for his final attempt in the long jump. The Cheltenham senior had faulted on his first two tries, so everything was on the line as he strode toward the pit. "It was just 'spotlight on me,' " Bethea said.

Just before John Lewis settled into the blocks last week at the District 1 track and field championships, a race official announced the 800-meter record to the crowd inside Coatesville's stadium. Hong Cho of Wissahickon set the mark of 1 minute, 50.92 seconds in 2011. His record would stand only a few more minutes. Lewis, a Cheltenham senior headed to Clemson next season, knew that time was within reach. "When they announced it," Lewis said, "I was like, 'I can definitely get that record.' " When he crossed the finish line, his unofficial time was announced as 1:48 and change.

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Brianna Stratz extended her right hand and reached for the baton. She waved her other hand in a circle, urging Alexa Kwapinski on. The Central Bucks South girls' 4x800 relay team had the state title in reach Saturday with 800 meters to go. Unbeknownst to Stratz, the Titans were nearing the Class AAA state record at the PIAA Track and Field Championships. The baton in her grasp, Stratz broke away from the pack. The public address announcer at Shippensburg University told the crowd that the record had a chance of changing hands.

Holy Cross' Jaquee Munger sat patiently with his teammates throughout most of the high-jump competition Wednesday. Munger watched, cross-legged and emotionless, as teammates and opponents struggled to clear 5 feet, 6 inches, then 5 feet, 8 inches, and so on. The senior did not even start to loosen up until Bordentown's top jumper got to 5-10, where he maxed out. Munger's warm-up consisted mostly of some practice steps and light jogging. His peers finished for the day and focused on Munger, slight in stature, as he stepped up to jump.

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Zach Zulli had a big grin on his face as he walked into the Shippensburg University sports information office. But it wasn't the news of his nomination for the Harlon Hill Award - Division II's version of the Heisman Trophy - that made him happy last week. Nor was it the fact that, after nine games, the junior quarterback led all NCAA divisions in touchdowns, total offense, total passing yards and passing yards per game. It wasn't even that the Red Raiders are ranked No. 7 nationally, the best in school history.
