With victory secured, Molly Speicher reacted naturally enough, savoring the win and making sure everybody in the house knew about it. That it was a game of table tennis played in the family's rec room a couple of weekends ago didn't matter. When her older brother, Pat, sent his last shot a couple of inches long of the table, Molly was one up on him in a hard-fought, 23-21 overtime win. "I will never let him forget that one," said a smiling Molly, who acknowledges losing about four of every five games they play.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- When three Navy officers in dress uniform knocked on the door of Michael Scott Speicher's Jacksonville home at 4:30 Thursday afternoon, his wife, Joanne, knew what they were there for."They didn't really have to say anything," said a family friend who asked not to be identified. "She knew they'd come to tell her he was the one."There are only 24 pilots from Jacksonville's Cecil Field serving with a squadron of F/A-18 fighter-bombers aboard the USS Saratoga. So when early-morning news reports said one of those pilots had become the first U.S. casualty of the Persian Gulf war, the wives of all the squadron members waited in dread.

Senior Pat Speicher told junior Evan Weintraub that he was getting the ball and would get the chance to be a hero. That was just fine with Weintraub, who made a three-pointer with 19 seconds left to give host Centennial a one-point lead on the way to a 54-50 upset of No. 12 River Hill last night. "Speicher was telling me he was going to get me the ball, so I was like, `All right, I've got to shoot this,' " said Weintraub, who finished the play after senior Riley Fritts grabbed his seventh rebound at the other end to put things in motion for the Eagles (12-5)

The Centennial girls basketball team has gotten plenty of mileage from its resources in the first half of the season. The Eagles, who went 12-12 last season, had only eight players try out for varsity at the start of this season, but coach Rob Slopek has been able to get the most from each in an impressive 9-2 start. Sophomore guard Molly Speicher (17.4 points per game, 7.6 rebounds) has consistently been the team's leading scorer, with her fellow starters stepping up at different times to help bring home wins.
