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 he can match what's in his head with what's in his body, Souderton long jumper Shamar Jenkins is tough to beat. On a drizzly Saturday afternoon at the District 1 track and field championships at Coatesville, Jenkins' upstairs matched his downstairs and helped the junior win the Class 3A championship. "It feels really good," said Jenkins, whose best jump was 21 feet, 111/2 inches. "I think I came out and just really wanted first place today. " A serious illness in October nearly derailed everything.

A single would have been fine, Angie Carty said. "Just a poke," the Souderton senior said afterward. "Anything. " With two runners on and her team up by only a run in the second inning, it didn't matter to Carty how the ball got into play. She just knew she had to put it there. The leadoff batter delivered for the Big Red, sending an outside pitch to right field for a triple and sending two of her teammates home. The two-run triple ended up being the difference maker for Souderton on Saturday afternoon in a pivotal nonconference win over Council Rock North, 3-2. "She's one of the most aggressive on the team," Alyssa McCormick said of Carty.

Jack Rapine's smooth transition from offensive guard to tight end has played a key role in Upper Dublin's record-setting season. "It's a lot different, but I like it," the senior captain said. "I'm pretty much a blocking tight end, but I also enjoy running routes and making catches. " On Saturday afternoon at Souderton, with a scoring grab and two touchdown-paving receptions, Rapine helped the Cardinals storm past North Penn, 46-21, for the program's first District 1 Class AAAA football title.

Upper Dublin's Bret Stover got emotional even before the start of the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA football final Saturday against North Penn, choking up while talking to his players in the locker room. "I didn't want it to end here," Stover said. "I wanted to have at least one more week of coaching these kids. We wanted to take the next step. " The Cardinals did just that, exploding for 29 unanswered points in the second half and claiming the program's first district title with a 46-21 romp over the Knights before a packed crowd at Souderton.

It's ironic that Jules Blank's last name is a synonym for shutout.

Bishop Shanahan came a long way Tuesday to claim a spot in the District 1 Class AA soccer final. And not just because the Eagles had to drive all the way up to Souderton. Jack Ziegler scored in the first half and third-seeded Shanhan held on for a 1-0 semifinal win over No. 2 Lower Moreland. It completed a massive turnaround for the Eagles, who won just one game in 2013. The Eagles will face Pottsgrove in the final, Thursday night at 7. They'll travel even farther this time, to Council Rock North.
