(blue) BLUE (hens) HENS

Ok, maybe it's not the feel good story of the year, what with ....

For Giordano, a junior attackman from Moorestown High School who has 16 goals and is averaging two points a game, this giddy journey is a reward for some trying times.

In December, prosecutors from Cape May County, N.J., determined that Giordano was a victim of mistaken identity when he was charged with assault, weapons possession and bias intimidation after an incident that occurred in Sea Isle City last summer.

Giordano was arrested after leaving a party early on the morning of Aug. 22 when police said he fit the description of one of three men who assaulted a black off-duty police officer with a baseball bat while shouting racial slurs.

Giordano maintained his innocence. Nonetheless, he paid a price. Since Delaware has a rule prohibiting a student charged with a felony from attending classes, he missed the fall semester.

... and all, but the Fightin' Blue Hens of the University of Delaware Blue Hens rule men's college lacrosse much in the way San Dimas High School Football once did. Their game to get into the Final Four is Sunday.

Go Hens!
