After years of riding to other townships for firing practice, the Upper Moreland police are getting a range they can call home. "We're really happy about it; it's something we've needed for a long time," said Lt. Carl Robinson, who spearheaded the search. The range is on the grounds of the Willow Grove Summer Day Camp on Davisville Road. Robinson said it would become available in the next few months. The need for a range is a practical one, Robinson said, allowing officers to stay on patrol while they train.

Lower Moreland boys' soccer coach John Oberholtzer recently said that what he likes best about his team is that it always seems to find a way to win. "I saw that quote in the newspaper and it made me think about my own team," said Upper Moreland coach Jim Kilmer. "Well, we're just the opposite. We keep finding ways to lose. " This has been one of the most disappointing seasons Kilmer has endured in the 23 years he has been at Upper Moreland. Monday afternoon, the Bears suffered a 1-0 loss to Suburban One American Conference Freedom Division rival Hatboro-Horsham, with Matt Harrar's third-quarter header accounting for the game's lone goal.

Upper Moreland coach John Scola would like nothing better for his field hockey team than to win the PIAA District 1 Class AAA title. But Scola remembers back to the spring when his Golden Bears softball team put so much emphasis on gaining the district title that it was emotionally spent in the first round of the state tournament and was ousted almost immediately. So, faced with a similar situation this fall, Scola vows not to let the same fate befall his current squad.

After dropping a 7-0 match to William Tennent on Monday, Upper Moreland coach Alan Hallman wasn't quite sure what to expect the next day, when his team took on Bensalem. And apparently some of his players weren't, either. But they still were able to come away with a 6-1 win. Highlighting the victory were comeback wins by Mike Quigley at fourth singles and Sean Casey and Shannon Casey at third doubles. Quigley came back and dumped Ashish Chawla, 0-6, 6-1, 6-3. The Caseys toppled Casey Minton and Jon Swenson, 2-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3)

Norristown wrestling coach Mark Harner is quick to point out that his Eagles, for all their singular stars, are not a great dual-meet team. They lack depth. They're more of a tournament team. Wednesday night reinforced that notion but also showed why Norristown has the armaments to at least make a run at what would be its first District 1 team title since winning back-to-back crowns in 1996 and '97. The Eagles dropped Upper Moreland, 45-31, in their home gym, improving to 3-0 (both overall and league)

Eleven years ago, Debbie DiBattista asked her three sons - Gianpiero, 7; Nicolino, 5; and Marco, 4 - if they wanted to try wrestling. Marco was quick to say no, but his perception of the sport was far from reality. "At first, I said no because I saw WWE and I thought that was wrestling, so I got freaked out," said Marco, 15, a Plymouth Whitemarsh sophomore. "But then she told me that there's trophies and stuff, so I said yeah and I did it and I kind of liked it. " On Saturday, DiBattista placed first in the 106-pound weight class at the Suburban One American Championships at Norristown, where Plymouth Whitemarsh finished first with 215 points.

Firefighters are battling a 3-alarm blaze in Upper Moreland at what is believed to be a sheet metal plant.

Crews from around Montgomery and Bucks Counties responded and were still battling the blaze around 6 p.m. Monday. The fire is on the 2300 block of Wyandotte Road in Willow Grove.
