Theodore C. "Ted" Quedenfeld, 66, a pioneer in Temple University's sports-medicine program, died of stomach cancer Saturday at Pennsylvania Hospital. He had been a longtime resident of Elkins Park. Mr. Quedenfeld was Temple's chief trainer and associate director of its Center for Sports Medicine and Science, and his research helped promote advances in everything from cleats to the prevention of sports-related asthma attacks. "He was the first generation of modern, scientific athletic trainers," said James W. Rogers, director of special projects in sports medicine at Temple and Mr. Quedenfeld's friend for 37 years.

Duce Staley, ganged up on the last four weeks by defenses, now has a much more complicated situation. And it will be next week before his status for the remainder of the season is known. Staley, who injured his right foot early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 38-10 victory over Atlanta, visited a sports medicine specialist in his hometown of Columbia, S.C., yesterday, but came away with no more answers. The problem is a ligament in the foot. Evan Ekman of Southern Orthopedics sports medicine in Columbia wants to see Staley again next week for "stress testing," said Staley's agent, Brantley Evans.

Hollywood tough guy Arnold Schwarzenegger was hitting Philadelphia yesterday to celebrate the completion of an Inner-City Games summer camp, and camper Soloman Isom wanted to see him first. Isom, 13, peered around a doorway at Vaux Middle School, toying with a golf putter as he awaited the actor's entrance. Suddenly, he broke into a wide grin. "I can see his sneakers," Isom said authoritatively. Schwarzenegger - the Games' national chairman - strode through the door amid popping flashes and spotted Isom with friend Lynnette Bishop, 12, who was holding a soccer ball.

Federal prosecutors regrouped yesterday after the two top executives of Salt Lake City's scandal-marred Olympics bid rejected a plea deal in the international vote-buying scheme. Lawyers for Tom Welch, the former leader of the successful bid to bring the 2002 Winter Games to Utah, and Dave Johnson, his chief deputy, said they turned down the deal Wednesday because the charges were too sweeping. Attorney Max Wheeler said Welch and Johnson rejected a deal that would have had them pleading guilty to obstructing the IRS from collecting taxes.

Villanova turned to one of its own yesterday when university president Edmund J. Dobbin appointed Vince Nicastro as the Wildcats' new athletic director. Nicastro, 34, has been a member of the athletic department since 1994, when he moved from St. Joseph's University to become Villanova's director of ticket operations. In 1997, he was promoted to assistant athletic director and then quickly to associate athletic director. Nicastro had been running the department's business-office operations, its personnel and staffing operations, and its sports-medicine and strength-and-conditioning programs.

On March 4, during a game between the Flyers and Boston Bruins at the FleetCenter, Eric Lindros was skating toward the offensive zone when he took a hard, teeth-rattling, open-ice shot under the chin from the Bruins' 6-7, 240-pound defenseman, Hal Gill. Lindros slowly got up, skated to the bench, missed his next couple of shifts, said he threw up in the locker room between periods, then returned to the ice. As it turned out, Lindros suffered a concussion on the hit, his fourth in two years and his second in two months.

There might have been some dry eyes in the house, but those belonging to Hanif "Julio" Styles were among the moist. Before the Ben Franklin High Electrons yesterday met visiting University City in a Public League round-of-16 playoff, they were visited by John Merlino, whose twin brother, Pete, coached Franklin this season for one game before dying of heart problems. Pete for many years coached at Franklin Learning Center, where John is the girls' coach. "John was crying," said Styles, a 5-6, 140-pound senior point guard.

A 16-year-old high school student died yesterday afternoon after collapsing during a junior-varsity football game. Jared Bentley, a junior at Pottstown High School, was complaining of shortness of breath all day, said Trudy Babel, a nursing supervisor at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center, where Bentley was pronounced dead at 4:50 p.m. "Apparently, he was telling his peers but did not tell his parents or the school," she said. During the game against the team from Upper Perkiomen, Bentley told the certified athletic trainer on duty that he was having trouble breathing.
