NEW COACH Chip Kelly has touted an even competition between Michael Vick and Nick Foles for the Eagles' starting quarterback position, but given the reworked 1-year, $10 million contract the Birds gave Vick, most of us figure he is likely to emerge as the starter. That's pretty much what receiver Jeremy Maclin thinks, as well. Maclin was asked yesterday, if he had to guess, who will be No. 1? "Right now, you've got Mike going with the 'ones' and Nick sprinkling in some reps here and there, so . . . " Maclin said at his Lincoln Financial Field charity event honoring five moms of kids he met through his summer football camp in West Deptford, N.J., where Maclin lives.

Soupy Island exists in a time warp. With its old, wood-covered slide, its grand carousel featuring 52 hand-carved horses, and its stately pavilions, the place evokes a mix of nostalgia and wonder. But the Sanitarium Playground - its official name - is no ghost town. During the months of July and August, the 16-acre park along the Delaware River in West Deptford teems with as many as 500 children a day. And there is always soup. Each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, when the sprawling playground is open for general admission, children line up at a soup kitchen for Saltines and a bowl of Campbell's vegetable beef or chicken noodle.

West Deptford wrestling coach John Craig pointed to the little things: the character his team showed, the poise, the intelligence, knowing what the team needs and delivering it. It's those little things, Craig said, that allowed for the Eagles' biggest accomplishment in more than 30 years. Friday night's 36-28 win over Haddonfield improved West Deptford's dual-meet record to 14-0. More than that, the win, one of many close ones for the Eagles this season, sealed a share of the team's first Colonial Conference Liberty Division title since 1978.

West Deptford has speed, quickness, and remarkable open-field ability. And that's just along the offensive line. It's not unusual to see a team with running backs who can turn the corner. What was most notable about West Deptford's 28-6 victory over Woodbury on Friday night in a Colonial Conference inter-division clash was the way Eagles wearing numbers in the 50s were excelling in space. "We don't have the biggest line," West Deptford senior guard Marquis Winston said.

It was the first match of the long night, but it went a long way toward deciding the outcome. Wrestling in his first varsity match, junior Josh Gilliano won a 3-1 decision in overtime to spark West Deptford to a 33-18 victory over St. Augustine Prep in a nonleague clash last night. The Eagles won nine of 14 bouts in securing the victory in their first match of the season. None was more important than the first one. "That was a toss-up match," West Deptford coach John Craig said of Gilliano's match with St. Augustine's Tyler Sentman.

Jamie Robinson is an entertainer, of sorts. Robinson, a left inner on the West Deptford field hockey team, entertains Eagles fans by moving upfield with the ball and depositing it into the cage, or by assisting on a goal. A four-year starter, Robinson has collected 96 career goals, the most ever by an Eagle. She shattered Kelly Malinowski's 1995 record of 72 goals last season. When she was a sophomore, her 28 goals tied the school's single-season scoring record set by Jen Geitz in 1993, and tied by Malinowski in 1995.

Summing up the eighth week of wrestling season and taking a look ahead. Don't judge West Deptford solely by its record when assessing what sort of season the Eagles have enjoyed. The record, 14-5 with one match to go, is good enough on face value. But the key fact at West Deptford this season is that the Eagles have become a major player in the South Jersey wrestling power structure. Wednesday night's 37-27 loss to Paulsboro capped a season in which West Deptford didn't win its league and didn't win a place in the Group 2 tournament.
