Led by a head coach and two players with Northeast ties, Holy Ghost Prep recently won its second straight PIAA Class AA state soccer championship.
Dunphy Ford, 7700 Frankford Ave., held its second annual Sledge Hammer Bash on Saturday. People used a sledgehammer to smash a used car painted with Dallas Cowboys colors.
Darci Borski knows what it’s like to rack up accolades and championships as a high school soccer star. Now, thanks to the experience she gained and is now paying forward as a head coach, so too do a new generation of student-athletes at Penn Charter.

A week after winning its first playoff game in a decade, Archbishop Ryan was no match for mighty Archbishop Wood, falling 35-14 in the Class AAA league title contest.
Ryan got its first playoff football win since 2004 behind the joint efforts of Samir Bullock and Bobby McDevitt.
By all accounts, Father Judge was hanging in there with one of the state’s best teams.
