  The team has been coached by Ben Emery, Samuel "Duke" Taylor (two stints), Ray
Evans, George "Buff" Weigand, Joe Perrott, Walter "Bucky" Harris, Lee Jackson,
Ron Haigler, Ed Enoch, William "Speedy" Morris, Bill Michuda
(two stints), Dave
"Lefty Ervin, Brian McMahon, Bill Gallagher, Jim "Flipper" Phillips
(three stints)
and Lynard Stewart.   
  The current members: Episcopal Academy, Germantown Academy, Haverford School,
Malvern Prep and SCH Academy (nee Chestnut Hill Academy). Former members: Bryn
Athyn (now Academy of the New Church), Friends' Central, Friends Select, Germantown
Friends, Montgomery School (defunct) and St. Luke's (defunct).
  Thanks to John Burkhart and Paul Butler for their help!
