Tiffany Younker hit the game-winning free throw with 9.3 seconds left to play Tuesday night to lift Hancock to a 41-40 win over Saint James. Younker went to the line for two shots with the score tied at 40. She missed the first shot, prompting coach Todd Ruppenthal to take a timeout. “I told her that after she made (the second shot) she would need to jump the ball on defense,” Ruppenthal said. Younker made the second shot and the Panthers pressured the inbounds pass.

Saint James had a coming-out party of sorts on Tuesday. The Saints were there and so was Emmett Orfan, but the Hancock boys basketball team misplaced its invitation. Saint James found a long-missing offense to score the game’s first 22 points — 13 coming from Orfan — as the Saints made the Panthers feel like wallflowers in a 83-42 rout. It allowed the Saints (8-5) to break out the balloons early. “We were desperate for a win tonight,” said Saint James coach Aaron Wilmore.

The Flint Hill Huskies took control early against Saint James and never let go, blanking the Saints 49-0 Saturday afternoon in a Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference football game. “Flint Hill is probably one of the top teams in the conference,” Saint James coach Juwuane Sandridge said. “We knew they were going to be good. Flint Hill was very talented on offense, defense and special teams.” Flint Hill (5-1, 1-0) outgained Saint James (1-6, 0-3) in total yards 298 to 61. The Huskies got 19 first downs, while the Saints only had four.

SAINT JAMES -- Like the owner of any full house, the Saint James School football team leads out with a strong pair. Many things could be in the cards for the Saints, who have 16 of their 25 players returning for their senior years. That, in itself, is a huge starting point for coach Chris Milmoe's third season. The familiarity and camaraderie can only help Saint James get started. Mike and Mo Townes are the poster children for the tight-knit Saints. Not only are they fourth-year players in the Saint James program, they are two of its returning starters who have the instincts of experience on their side.

If Aaron Wilmore believed in omens, he probably would have left Saint James’ gym like his hair was on fire on Monday. “We had our first practice after winter break and not everyone showed up,” he said. “... In fact, hardly any, except our core guys, were there.” Wilmore took it in stride and he has a full head of hair to prove it. Instead, the Saints looked like they were in midseason form on Tuesday in a 78-46 win over Hancock to mark Wilmore’s first victory as the Saints’ new basketball coach.

SAINT JAMES -- Once Washington's volleyball team got its attack straightened out late in Game 1 of Wednesday's match at Saint James, the Patriots were a little too much for the Saints. Nikki Ashbaugh was the best player on the floor, finishing with 28 assists and six aces, and Washington found another gear for a 24-26, 25-23, 25-15, 25-15 victory. "She every single match gives 100 percent. I never have to question her work ethic," Patriots coach Ian Hillman said.

When Chris Milmoe came to Saint James in the spring of 2008 to be the Saints’ head football and wrestling coach and assistant athletic director, he could not have envisioned the position he would be in three years later. When Athletic Director Mike Brooks left Saint James in December, Milmoe became the interim AD. Now, the 29-year-old Milmoe has been named the permanent athletic director, and it will be his only position on campus. He has given up his head football coaching spot.

Throwing only two strikes to the first three batters in the opposing lineup is not a good indication of how things might fare. Saint James starter Ben Holland walked the first three batters in the Mercersburg Academy lineup and each scored in a three-run first inning. Four innings later, players shook hands after Mercersburg had recorded a 16-0 victory over the Saints, who return to action Wednesday at home against Flint Hill. “You can't start a game the way we did and make it competitive,” Saint James coach Mick Kerns said.

The 6-foot-8 Saint James senior made a verbal commitment to Temple University, choosing the Philadelphia school immediately following his weekend visit rather than wait and make other visits. “I wanted to get the process done,” Enechionyia said. “I enjoyed the campus and it is a city kind of atmosphere.

The one and only extra point that was converted on Saturday was the difference in a win or loss. Ryan Abbott's kick in the second quarter gave Saint James a 7-6 lead and ended up being the difference on a beautiful Saturday afternoon as the Saints presented head coach John Root with his first victory in a 13-12 nailbiter over Clear Spring. “It's nice to get the first win, but I'm more happy for the kids,” Root said. The effort was strong, but the results leading to the final were a little sloppy, especially in the second half.

“Where is my faith? Even deep down there is nothing but emptiness and darkness. What do I labor for? If there be no God, there can be no soul. If there be no soul, then Jesus you are not true.” Strange words indeed coming from the pen of Mother Teresa.  Although she is headed for sainthood in the Catholic Church, those words contained in her composed letters throughout her life suggest some serious doubts in regard to her faith. Mother Teresa has always been a person I most admired for a lot of different reasons.

The length of Saturday's game between Saint James and Central Maryland Christian caused the Saints players to hustle to the cafeteria for the daily 6 p.m. dinner hour. After 30 assessed penalties and a 40-minute lightning delay, a football game was finally completed on the new field turf at Saint James. Central Maryland Christian rallied in the last 10 minutes to hang a 28-17 loss on the Saints, spoiling the debut of head coach John Root. “It was a messy game, one of those things,” Root said.

Now on the job for just over six weeks, Saint James head football coach John Root is beginning to set a new direction for Saints football. That new era begins Saturday afternoon when Root and his team take to the new field turf at Saint James in a home game against Central Maryland Christian. “Coming in late is tough for these kids,” Root said. “There were some players lost to graduation, so we've been looking back at tapes from last year. “The tapes will show us who can run, who can throw and who can catch.

They are what matter in life and who knows what they will bring you.” McGrath is director of admissions at Harvard College and tutored Saint James' headmaster, the Rev.
