The Souderton volleyball team gathered for the final time-out of the District 1 championship match last night, and began bouncing together before returning to the court. "We just do that to get fired up," senior outside-middle hitter Adam Bennett said. "We just start jumping and jumping. " The Indians jumped all the way to the championship, rebounding for a 4-15, 15-7, 13-15, 16-14, 15-11 win over Pennsbury at Norristown High. Both teams are scheduled to open the state tournament Tuesday.

Sitting around in damp football equipment wasn't part of the game plan. But Souderton shook off the effects of two stoppages in the fourth quarter Friday night against host Pennridge and won the Suburban One American football game at Poppy Yoder Field, 14-0. With the victory, Souderton (6-3 overall, 6-3 league) held on to third place in the Liberty Division, behind Plymouth-Whitemarsh and Cheltenham. Pennridge dropped to 4-4 overall and in the division. The teams played nearly 39 minutes of football in steady rain, with the crowd apparently content to watch from underneath an assortment of umbrellas and rain gear.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Erelle Sowers stood a few feet behind the rubber in the pitching circle. The seventh inning was about to start, and the Souderton righthander was all by herself on the infield, as none of her Souderton softball teammates had walked onto the diamond yet. Sowers calmly picked up some dirt and received a thumbs-up and reassuring nod from coach Steph Rummel. Always composed - even when three outs away from a state championship - Sowers went on to retire the side in order.

Tom Coopersmith, the head coach of Souderton's ice hockey team, realizes the limitations of players new to the game. That's why Coopersmith isn't expecting much from the Indians this season. "Most of our guys are first-year or second-year players," the coach said. "I've been teaching a lot of defensive skills. Everyone is anxious to score, but not as eager to learn defensive techniques. " Souderton, which played at the junior varsity level last season, topped Bishop McDevitt, 7-5, Tuesday night at Warwick Twin Rinks to snap a five-game losing streak and notch its first Inter-County Scholastic Hockey League win of the 1998-99 campaign.

Kyle Greenwalt is ready for the curveball that tomorrow's baseball draft may throw him. If only Exeter had been as prepared for the Souderton righthander's knee-buckling, 12-6 breaking ball. Greenwalt, in top form, used a devastating curveball as Souderton humbled District 3's Exeter, 5-1, yesterday in a PIAA Class AAAA first-round playoff game at Quakertown's Memorial Field. The victory gave the Indians their first state playoff win - after losing to eventual state champion Delaware Valley last season in the opening round - and set up a clash with West Chester East tomorrow at a time and location to be determined.

After Pennsbury beat Souderton, 5-0, Thursday at Spring-Ford in near-100-degree heat to advance to the PIAA Class AAAA softball semifinals, a Falcons fan folded his chair and said: "Now that was a workmanlike win. " That was probably the best way to sum up the Falcons' 22d victory in 25 games this season. Pennsbury, seeking its sixth state championship under coach Frank McSherry, got the hits when it needed them, played near-flawless defense, and received a one-hit pitching performance from sophomore Val Buehler to put down the Indians, the surprise team of the season.

The mood surrounding the PIAA District 1 girls' soccer quarterfinal playoffs was one of with excitement and anticipation Thursday afternoon as defending state champion Central Bucks West hosted the first-year program of Souderton. "We didn't really know anything about Souderton except that they had a very good record," Central Bucks West junior Maggie Moyer said after West had routed the Indians, 9-1. "We worked very hard in practice getting ready for the game, but when the game started, we were a little nervous.

Souderton manager Mark Ludlow was understandably skeptical when he received a call from 41-year old Bob Anderson late in the summer of 1989. "He said he was interested in pitching for us," said Ludlow. "My gut reaction was that he was some guy who was watching a game on television and remembered what is was like when he pitched in Little League. " But there was something about Anderson that was different. He said he had just moved to Bucks County from California, where he pitched in a weekend league.

Souderton is the top seed in the PIAA District 1 volleyball tournament that begins today, and the Indians are hoping to avoid the upset that kept them from claiming the title last season. Then, as the No. 1 seed, they suffered their first loss of the season in the district semifinals to eventual champion William Tennent. "I think this is going to be an interesting year; I think there are going to be some upsets," said Indians coach Will Lapp, whose team has been ranked in the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association top-20 state poll all season.

The Souderton boys' volleyball team claimed its second title of the season Saturday by defeating Governor Mifflin, 15-10, 16-14, in the Quakertown Tournament finals. "Everybody did a pretty good job," said Indians coach Will Lapp, whose team was 14-1 in games at Quakertown. "Brad Garrett and Dan Hoch did a good job on the outside, and Matt Musselman did well in the middle. Momentum was a key to the win. "All the teams we played were really scrappy," Lapp said. "We'd finish one good match and go on to the next.

When Brendan McGrath was in eighth grade, the Central Bucks South varsity lacrosse team won just two games. On Thursday night, McGrath, now a senior attacker, scored two goals and added an assist on senior night, giving the Titans an 8-5 victory against Souderton at Central Bucks West. "Coach (Mike) Sharman came in, and we went 9-9 freshman year, and then from there it's been winning seasons each year," said McGrath, who will play at York College next year. If the program's ascent began slowly four years ago, Thursday night was no different.

This time last year, Alex Scheeler was the go-to ace for Penndale Middle School. There, she helped the team, a part of the North Penn school district, go undefeated during her seventh and eighth grade seasons. Flash forward to Friday afternoon, and Scheeler was the starting pitcher for Souderton, the defending PIAA Class AAAA champion softball champions. She fit right in. Scheeler's poise on the mound and aptitude at the plate helped the Indians defeat North Penn - the high school she would have attended had her family not moved -by a score of 2-1. "I really wanted to beat North Penn," Scheeler said.

Sam Offenback is in unfamiliar territory. The senior catcher for Neshaminy's softball team has played for a PIAA Class AAAA state title. She has competed in the District 1 Class AAAA tournament and won Suburban One League National Conference championships. She has played in some big games and put up even bigger numbers since taking over behind the plate as a freshman. But she has never before caught a pitcher younger than her. The Long Island University recruit laughed about just that after Neshaminy's 11-5 victory at Souderton on Wednesday afternoon.

With national signing day coming up on Wednesday, many of the area's top football players in the Class of 2015 are set to ink letters of commitment. Not Alex Hornibrook. The former Malvern Prep quarterback is already enrolled at Wisconsin, going through workouts with his new teammates, and taking classes toward a business degree. "The toughest part was getting to know where everything is on campus," said Hornibrook, who threw for 2,076 yards and 26 touchdowns last season. "Now that I've been here for a few weeks, I'm pretty comfortable with things.

With a 6-foot-5, 180-pound frame and an improving feel for the game, Souderton's Evan Slone is drawing considerable interest from Division III basketball programs. Friday afternoon in the Trojan Holiday Classic at Wissahickon, with Marywood head coach Bob Simmons on hand, the senior forward and tricaptain showed he could easily contribute at that level. Slone scored 14 points and collected 11 rebounds, including three on the offensive end, as the Indians held off previously undefeated Father Judge, 48-45, in a semifinal.

KT Armstrong muscled her way down the left side of the lane. "Ball," the 6-foot-2 forward for the Perkiomen Valley girls' basketball team pleaded as she posted up. The ball never came, so Armstrong quickly made her way to the right side of the lane. "Ball," the junior repeated. This time she got what she was looking for, and she was fouled as she took the ball to the hoop. The scene repeated itself several times Saturday afternoon in the fourth quarter of Perkiomen Valley's 33-26 win at Souderton.

Andrew Johnson said it to anyone and everyone on his Plumstead Christian soccer team who would listen. " Boys ," he said. "We've never lost when we sing that song.

The program's first district title was fueled by Johnson, who scored the winner and played a stellar game on defense.

" Senior forward Abraham Kamara netted a hat trick, and Adin Hernandez-Carrera added a goal and an assist.

As the vehicle left the Central Bucks South parking lot in Warrington, it struck an unoccupied car. The impact triggered a chain reaction with two other vehicles.
