There are easier ways to celebrate high school graduation than to run for your baseball team's life. For verification, check with Matt McAllister . . . who perhaps by now has even stopped panting. What a day to remember for McAllister, a 6-foot, 175-pound pitcher-third baseman, and the other baseball playing members of Archbishop Wood High's senior class. From graduation at 11 a.m., in Villanova's Pavilion, to a 10-6, come-from-way-behind win over West York in a PIAA Class AAA first-round playoff at La Salle High's Ward Field (4 p.m. start)

OK, SO THE breakthrough has been made in baseball. Next question: Can it be sustained? After going winless in the first round of the 2011 state playoffs, and being outscored, 44-10, District 12 last year managed a 3-3 record and the fun wasn't close to being over. La Salle High captured three more wins and became D-12's first diamond state champion. The Public League began competing in state playoffs in the 2004-05 school year and the Catholic League got its feet wet in 2008-09.

Through six quarters, Alyssa Monaghan refused to take a single break Wednesday. She knew there was too much on the line. Not only was the senior guard in the midst of propelling Bonner-Prendergast to a 59-53 double-overtime win over West York in the second round of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs, but she also knew she was within striking distance of a milestone. Monaghan's 32 points made good on both counts, and was enough to send the Pandas to a quarterfinal matchup against league-rival Archbishop Wood on Saturday at a site and time to be determined.

Pennridge baseball coach Tom Nuneviller knows what it takes to win a state title. After all, the last time the Rams won a state championship, in 1987, he played in center field. His current group took another step Thursday toward joining him in Pennridge lore, beating Wyoming Valley West, 3-1, in the PIAA Class AAAA state quarterfinals at Parkland. Jake Gordon tripled in A.J. Molettiere with the go-ahead run in the fourth inning. Gordon then scored on an error. Molettiere went 2 for 3 with two doubles, and Gordon was 2 for 3. Tyler Shoultes also drove in a run. "We have been playing very good baseball," Nuneviller said.

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. The Golden Bears, who moved to within a win of their first state title, grabbed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first. 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.

Mary Anne Young put it bluntly. "I hadn't made a basket in a while," the senior said. Her tone was self-depreciating, but it also conveyed disbelief. The Bonner-Prendergast guard had played in three straight games before Saturday without scoring. And she hadn't reached double digits since early January. Against Gwynedd Mercy on Saturday in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA state tournament, Young made up for her recent offensive anemia. Young knocked down three three-pointers en route to 11 points, and Bonner-Prendergast beat Gwynedd Mercy, 48-39, for the program's first win in the state playoffs.

Gwynedd Mercy's Allie Szekely set a meet record and a Villa Maria relay team came just short of doing the same Friday at the PIAA Class AA state swimming and diving championships at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa. Szekely broke her own record in the 200-yard individual medley when she finished in 1 minute, 59.51 seconds. The sophomore finished the race in 1:59.66 last year. Villa Maria, which leads the team standings with 131 points after Friday's events, came just short of a pair of its own records, but won the 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay.

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.

Minding the hot corner for the first time all season, Neshaminy senior Selina Alicea told herself, "Don't mess up. Don't mess up. " After the initial pangs of self-doubt, Alicea knew she would be fine, telling herself that she could hold her own in the field and being confident at the plate. She started the season as a pinch-hitter and then slowly became a designated player for the Neshaminy softball team (23-2). Now, Alicea has worked her way into the starting lineup and is a probable starter for Friday's PIAA Class AAAA state final at Penn State, against Canon McMillan at 12:30 p.m. "It's been absolutely awesome," Alicea said.
