One of the nice things - if one has patience - about coaching young track teams, according to Cardinal O'Hara girls' track and field coach Jen Quigley-Cipollone, is that one never knows quite what to expect. This year, the Lions' 40-person roster has 24 freshmen, and those first-year athletes have given Quigley-Cipollone some unexpected thrills already. After capturing first-place in the distance medley and 4x100-meter at the Chichester Relays on March 25, Cardinal O'Hara traveled to Williamsburg, Va., for the Colonial Relays on Saturday.

Sue Graver and the players on her Gloucester High field hockey team have spent the better part of the season getting to know one another. And the process has gone well, as the Lions have compiled a 7-2-1 record that gives Graver reason to believe the best is yet to come. "The kids have adjusted to everything very well," said Graver, who is in her 10th season at Gloucester. "I knew we had a few strong players, but it took me a long time to find the personnel I wanted. I've probably held the reins on the team, because I've wanted them to get comfortable with each other.

No one could have been more surprised at the sudden success of those "young lions" than the young lions themselves. Terence Blanchard - scheduled to appear Saturday night at the Painted Bride - was among those gifted, youthful musicians who headed to New York in the late '70s and early '80s after learning all they could in their native New Orleans. Naturally, he and fellow trumpeter Wynton Marsalis had a lot to talk about, and one of the things they discussed was the likelihood that they were in store for many years of dues-paying before anyone would take them seriously as musicians.

Last night's Mellon Jazz Festival finale at the Community Education Center in Powelton Village was titled "The Young Lions. " Except for guitarist Monnette Sudler and drummer Cornell Rochester, both much in demand and understandably so, the performers were local iconoclasts whose stubborn commitment to freer jazz forms keeps them out of venues hospitable enough to fusion and hard bop. Sudler, who played unaccompanied and sang a torchy number...

When the Academy of the New Church started the lacrosse season by losing its first three games, head coach Joe Maddock began to wonder whether his young Lions would realize their potential. Those doubts were squelched Saturday with an 11-1 victory over visiting George School in the final of the Friends Schools League tournament that gave ANC its first Friends title. Also the winner of the Northeast League crown, which they captured on May 9, the Lions ended the regular season 11-5 overall, 4-0 in the Friends Schools League, and 7-0 in the Northeast League.

Phelps School actually plays two seasons of basketball. The first two-game set started last Tuesday with an away game against Shipley School and will be completed today with a home game against Akiba Hebrew. After today's action, the Lions break for the holidays. Their next game is Jan. 17, so coach Mike Plunkett really has two preseasons to worry about. Combine that with the yearly roster changes at the school, and it makes for a very difficult coaching job. "After we start all over again, we then have a span of seven games in 10 days," Plunkett said.

Cherry Hill West girls' basketball coach Gene McDonnell spent two years building last season's successful ball club. McDonnell will begin the process all over again, as the Lions have lost four starters from last season's 20-8 team that advanced to the South Jersey Group 3 semifinal round. But McDonnell doesn't mind the rebuilding process one bit. "We're young and we have a lot of talented players," McDonnell said. "It's always a given that you'll go through rebuilding seasons.

Every time the Penncrest Lions charged out of the locker room last season, the opposing team knew it was going to face an experienced football team that was fundamentally sound and had plenty of varsity experience. With running back Lanue Johnson and quarterback Rich Nicholson, the Lions had a potent offense to go with a group of veteran, workmanlike players. This season, things will be different for the Central League Lions. The Lions finished a respectable fourth in the Central League, and if coach Mike Scheetz wants to have another successful season, he's going to have to do it with his youngest squad in recent memory.

The conviction of three young men in South Africa last week for the killing of Amy Biehl, a white American student who had ventured into a black township, points to a question mark hanging over the future of the country. Politicized youth were once in the vanguard of the struggle against apartheid. But where do they fit into the new South Africa? In a speech last spring, President Nelson Mandela lamented the transformation of what his African National Congress called "young lions.

Call it, if you want, the "Night of the Young Lions. " The Mellon Jazz Festival went into full tilt last night as the Academy of Music stage became a showcase for two of the Great American Art Form's brightest young stars. Both are in their mid-20s. Both showed first-class virtuosity. Both showed that, as far and as fast as they've come, they've still got a long way to go. First up was Stanley Jordan, a guitarist for whom the entire known chordal structure of Western Civilization is a giant pinball machine that he can jolt, caress and prod toward bonus after bonus of rococco phrases.

When Cherry Hill West opened the baseball season with three losses in its first four games, coach Dan McMaster didn't have to focus on maintaining a positive atmosphere. Senior shortstop Brad Machinski took care of that. "He's one of the best leaders I've ever been around," McMaster said of Machinski, who has helped the young Lions develop into one of the surprise teams of the South Jersey season. Cherry Hill West (8-3) has won seven in a row. The Lions have emerged as strong contenders in the Olympic Conference National Division as well as a team to watch in the South Jersey Group 4 tournament.

For years, Philadelphia Zoo visitors were treated daily to the roar of Merlin, the African lion who declared each morning and afternoon that he was the boss. The 21-year-old fathered 11 cubs and had exceeded a lion's typical life expectancy. Last weekend, zoo officials said Thursday, his health declined rapidly, and he was euthanized Sunday. "On Friday, he didn't eat his dinner, and that was very unlike him," said Tammy Schmidt, the zoo's curator of carnivores and ungulates.

Sometimes Derrick Williams cried on the practice field because it hurt so much - the inactivity, not the broken left arm that forced him to miss the tail end of Penn State's remarkable 2005 season. Sometimes coach Joe Paterno would put an arm around the broad shoulders of his prized recruit and try to convince him that the painful down-time might prove to be a beneficial experience. He could learn more about pass routes from the sideline. He could learn more about defenses and coaching tactics.

When Paul Posluszny checked his cell phone for messages one day back in May and saw one from Joe Paterno summoning him to the Penn State coach's office, he shuddered a bit. "I thought I did something wrong," the junior linebacker said recently. "I was trying to think of what it was. " Posluszny soon learned he'd done nothing wrong. Instead, Paterno told him he had been elected a tri-captain by the players' vote, which not only astonished him, but just about everyone else around Nittany Lions football.

Three weeks into a season that so far has given Penn State followers more aggravation than excitement, the Nittany Lions have offered several reasons for their 1-2 start. Most prominent among them: We don't have a lot of experience. And, we haven't made the one or two plays that would have put us over the top. Quarterback Zack Mills is among the Penn State players who has offered those reasons, but he's getting tired of repeating them. "The time is now to step it up," said Mills, a redshirt junior who has accepted much of the blame for Penn State's inefficient offense.

Beth Daniel may not have won an LPGA tournament since 1995, but she has spent the weekend at the McDonald's LPGA Championship reminding people of her days as one of the leading players in women's golf. Daniel, 45, continued to show off her veteran savvy yesterday. She executed a bunch of clutch shots and significant putts in delightful sunshine; outdueled her playing partner, Karrie Webb; and discouraged anyone wishing to make a charge. During a season in which Saturday has been her cruelest day, Daniel equaled the day's best score with a 3-under-par 68 and opened a 4-stroke lead entering today's final round of the $1.5 million tournament at DuPont Country Club.

The Princeton University women's lacrosse team lost eight seniors because of graduation last year, and at the College of New Jersey, five seniors graduated and two junior starters did not return to the team. The Tigers start eight freshmen and sophomores, and the Lions are not much older. Nonetheless, both teams will vie for national championships at CNJ this weekend as the NCAA Division I and Division III final fours take place on the Lions Stadium artificial turf. Princeton (14-3)

Out of the explosion of young jazz sax players that erupted in the '90s, Joshua Redman has emerged as a survivor - scarred and bloodied, but a survivor nonetheless. He was immediately embraced by the media - who could resist his being a Harvard grad and the son of famous saxman Dewey Redman? And it didn't hurt that he took first place in the prestigious 1991 Thelonious Monk competition. But a big label contract (Warner Bros.) at such a tender age (early 20s) and being catapulted to a leader's role with little experience as a sideman led to problems for Redman - uneven recordings and live performances.

Old cats, young lions, and jazz lovers of all ages made themselves at home on stage and on the grass at Willingboro's Mill Creek Park yesterday for the Black Tree Jazz Fest. The afternoon festival was under the direction of musician Miles Jaye Davis after financial complications almost discontinued the tradition formerly known as the Willingboro Jazz Fest. It featured local artists and nationally renowned performers including the Marcus Johnson Group and Ricky Wellman, a former drummer in the Miles Davis Band.
