West Chester Henderson's Ben Yoder has had a very good swim season, but it has often been lost in the shadow of the Warriors' standout, Steve Rivers. On Saturday, it was Yoder's chance to share some of that spotlight, and he could feel it coming soon after the meet began. Yoder was seeded sixth in the individual medley, the third event on the PIAA District 1 championship program. He finished just as he was seeded, but he could feel the adrenalin pumping after turning in a 1:59.

Baseball players may run hard in the outfield, or around the bases if the play dictates. But generally, baseball players don't like to run much farther than 90 feet, the length of a basepath. The proof is in the groans and moans any time a coach tells his team to finish a practice with a "lap around the field. " But Ben Yoder doesn't mind a quick lap or two, or maybe even a half-dozen. He was the captain of the West Chester Henderson cross-country team last fall, helping the Warriors finish fourth in the state.

For all 4,000 athletes, this weekend's Philadelphia Triathlon means something special. For Anthony Yoder, it's a chance to further make a name for himself. Since turning pro as a junior in high school, Yoder has quickly ascended to the national stage. For Stacy Warkentine, it's a chance to fight back against cancer. She aims to retake control of her body and serve as an inspiration for her children. So collectively, they all prepare for the grueling race. This weekend, Fairmount Park will host the 6th Annual Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon.

The former Phoenix Steel property in downtown Phoenixville or one on the West Chester University campus have been mentioned as potential sites, along with two others in the Kennett Square and Downingtown areas....

West Chester Henderson's Ben Yoder, Chris Aspite and Ed Becker enjoy running together. So much, in fact, that they have made it a habit to cross the finish line in cross-country meets as a unit. This usually means a three-way tie for first place and a Warriors win. "I don't really know who's No. 1," Yoder said. "But I know it helps to have each other. We push each other. " On Wednesday, the trio met its match in Downingtown's Marcus Molina, who has emerged this fall as the area's top runner.

West Chester Mayor Dick Yoder's vision of building a stadium to lure a minor league baseball team to West Chester, or another site in Chester County, has taken its first step beyond the dream phase and is on to first base. Texas architect Alan Adler, who has been involved in the design of several minor league ballparks, has been contracted to do what he calls a "scope analysis" of the proposal. Baseball consultant Howie Bedell, a former Phillies player, has joined those interested in the proposal.

By Tobias Peter Rep. Kevin Yoder might be the first Republican in a long time to win a place in the hearts of many Germans. While Germans tend to be liberal, they also feel sorry for the conservative Kansas congressman who has been in hot water for a naked swim in the Sea of Galilee - the biblically prominent body of water that Jesus is said to have walked on. Again and again, Yoder has apologized for the skinny-dipping incident, which took...

Unbreakable on offense and relentless on defense, the front lines of the Springfield football team led the Spartans to a 21-7 victory yesterday over host Lower Moreland for the Independence League championship. "I think our offensive line has done a fabulous job - they've really matured over the year," Spartans coach Dave Puchalski said. Chad Merriweather, a senior co-captain, took advantage of that line work by leading the Spartans (10-1) in rushing with 100 yards on 15 carries.

Octorara's Brent Watkins didn't get much sleep last week. After winning the PIAA Class AA District 1 championship meet on Oct. 27, the Braves' senior started worrying about last Saturday's state championship meet at Penn State. Watkins was confident he could finish in the top 20 and get a medal at the state meet, but the more he thought about it the more he worried. "It kept me up all night," he said. Perhaps now, after his 13th-place finish, Watkins can finally get some rest.

USAir Group Inc. and Piedmont Aviation Inc., which agreed to combine operations six months ago, asked the federal government yesterday to approve their merger so they could compete with the industry "mega-carriers. " In a joint brief, the carriers asked the Transportation Department to reject an adverse preliminary ruling by Administrative Law Judge Ronnie Yoder, who said last month that the $1.6 billion merger should not be allowed because it was anticompetitive. The department, which governs airline mergers, is scheduled to make a final decision by Oct. 30. The two airlines disputed Yoder's opinion, noting that the Justice Department and the Transportation Department's Office of Public Counsel could find no reason to oppose the merger.
