Julie Hull Elicker came away with some mementos of the World Cup Lacrosse Championship Saturday. The Great Valley High School graduate, a starter on the United States national team, ended her lacrosse career with a silver medal and a Joe Palooka-caliber black eye. Elicker would be the first to concede that the silver medal may be the one that hurts more . . . because it means second best. Elicker and Team USA came up three goals shy in their bid for a second straight world title.

The lesson that remains with Angela Brown, after all the travel and all the competition, the successes and the failures, is that life is there to be explored.

On Thursday night, Summer Sanders cried. She had won a bronze medal. She had won a silver medal. She had set American records along the way. She had swum her best times ever. But she cried. "I just broke down," she said last night after completing her Olympics with a gold medal in the women's 200-meter butterfly. "I didn't know why. I was crying, and I really felt like I had to, so I did. I don't know what it was. I was very happy with my swims. But . . . I got second. "It just didn't happen.

For some athletes at these Winter Olympics, there is little difference between a gold medal and a silver medal. Both are symbols of excellence, fitting rewards for years of sacrifice, pain, endurance and commitment. There is one group of athletes at these games, however, for whom a silver medal will be more a mark of failure than excellence. That's just the way it is for the U.S. women's hockey team. That's how high of a standard this powerhouse team has set for itself.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia - After plummeting 425 feet, through 17 curves and 1,500 icy meters in less than a minute, Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans slowed enough to see that they were going to win an Olympic medal. That scoreboard revelation turned up the volume in the already-noisy grandstand at the Sanki Sliding Center's finish line. American fans blew horns, rang cowbells, chanted "U-S-A," and generally greeted the news as if it were an armistice. Greubel and Evans exited their USA-2 bobsled with much more difficulty than they had entered it at the start of their fourth and final heat and joined in the party.

LONDON - On the final arrow, the U.S. lost Olympic gold in men's team archery. No matter - the Americans were still thrilled to win the first U.S. medal at the London Games. Italy topped the trio of Brady Ellison, Jacob Wukie, and Jake Kaminski by one point on Saturday for the team gold, while South Korea took the bronze. "I wasn't disappointed that we got a silver.

We are Olympic medalists - and it doesn't matter the color.

EUGENE, Ore. - Ryann Krais came to historic Hayward Field as the NCAA heptathlon champion. But the Kansas State junior out of Methacton High knew that she would be facing a pack of internationally-tested "hep" veterans in the U.S. track and field championships and would be lucky to place in the top six. It turned out a whole lot better than that. Krais, 21, rallied from far down to come within a mere 28 points of winning it all on Sunday. It all boiled down to the 800 meters, the seventh and concluding event of the heptathlon, and Krais raced out to a huge early edge on her 11 pursuers, reaching the 400 post in just under 60 seconds.
