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)

Dave McInerney, a hard-hitting catcher at Upper Moreland who will be a senior this fall, has made a commitment to the University of Cincinnati. Last season, McInerney batted .432 with 17 RBIs, 15 runs, 9 doubles, 5 home runs, and a .510 on-base percentage. He was an Inquirer third-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection and first-team Suburban One League American Conference pick.

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)

After coming within a victory of a PIAA Class AAA state baseball title and returning seven regulars from that squad, Upper Moreland entered this year with a fair amount of confidence. "We pretty much brought everybody back," said Charlie Hooker, a senior outfielder and pitcher. "We had the chemistry part down, too. " Despite the imposing lineup, the Golden Bears struggled out of the gate. Monday's 3-0 loss to Cheltenham dropped them to 3-3 overall and 2-3 in the Suburban One League American Conference.

Dan Jacobson says the potential is there for Upper Dublin to duplicate or improve on its 2012 baseball success, when it went 18-7 and earned a berth in the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament. "I think we have what it takes," the senior righthander said. "We have hitting, pitching, solid fielding. We also have a winning attitude. " With Jacobson scattering three singles and fanning 11 in a complete game, the host Cardinals christened their newly renovated field by turning back Upper Moreland, 3-2, Thursday in a Suburban One League American Conference matchup.

It all started with a long-overdue win. Plymouth Whitemarsh entered its Jan. 8 wrestling match against Wissahickon with a fair record, 6-5, and hopes of grinding out the school's first win over its Suburban One American rival in four years. The Colonials (18-8, 7-0 conference) handed Wissahickon a 53-7 setback that night, setting them on a course that would include victories against annual league front-runners Norristown (42-27 score), Upper Dublin (50-16), and Upper Moreland (36-25)

An afterthought for most of the year, North Penn rose from the ranks of the unappreciated in the playoffs. It started in the District 1 Class AAAA tournament when the Knights, after coming in as the North region's No. 12 seed, placed fourth among 24 teams. It continued in the state playoffs, with wins over two district champions (Parkland and Coatesville) and, in a reversal of three previous losses to their Suburban One League Continental Conference rival, a defeat of Pennridge.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - An inability to capitalize with runners in scoring position, a catcher's-interference ruling, and a controversial third-strike call spelled a disappointing end for Upper Moreland. Leaving nine runners stranded, the upstart Golden Bears bowed to District 3's West York, 2-1, Friday in the PIAA Class AAA state baseball final at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. "It's tough right now, but we had a great year," senior centerfielder and leadoff man Matt Kohn said.

Junior Tommy Robinson pitched a two-hitter Tuesday, and Upper Moreland advanced to the PIAA Class AAA state baseball final with a 3-1 victory over error-plagued Keystone Oaks at Greene Township Park in Scotland, Franklin County.

With Keystone Oaks, from District 7, committing four errors, all three of Upper Moreland's runs were unearned. Robinson struck out three and walked none.
