In his days with the Horsham Hawks youth football organization, there were times when Josh Mastromatto didn't make weight on game day. Not from tipping the scale but from getting a lower-than-mandated reading.

They are now accountants, university administrators, salespeople and homemakers, but 10 years ago they comprised the two best basketball teams in District 1. Coming together again after a decade - some a few pounds heavier, some with a little gray in their hair, all in suits and dresses instead of their Upper Dublin uniforms - the members of the 1984-1985 District 1 boys' and girls' championship basketball teams were honored Friday. Ten years later, some of those 23 players perhaps are just beginning to realize that they accomplished what no two other basketball teams in District 1 history have ever done - they won both the boys' and girls' Class AAAA title in the same year.

Upper Dublin hit only four balls to the outfield Friday afternoon and none went in the direction of Seth Leuz. "I was just chillin' out there," the C.R. North rightfielder said.

When Upper Dublin senior Michael Mullen shoots a lacrosse ball, the 6-foot attacker doesn't get cheated. In the first quarter of Monday's 21-1 destruction of visiting Upper Merion, Mullen ripped a shot about 10 yards left of the goal that whizzed past the goaltender, squirted through a black, chain-linked fence and bounced down bustling Susquehanna Avenue. "That happens all the time, especially with him," said Upper Dublin senior Allison Silk, a team manager. "Last week, he hit a car.
