It was the kind of pitching experience that might make some guys, forever and ever, switch to another position. Or even to a different sport. A few years ago, while playing in one of the 21st Ward League's many in-house groupings, Ray Guinther surrendered two grand slams and another home run in the very same inning! "It all happened in not too long a period of time," he said. "There were some errors mixed in, but mostly they just kept hitting the ball. After it's all over, you really just have to laugh.

On her way to a map-reading class in Mount Laurel last week, Helen Mallon got lost. Minutes before it started, Mallon rushed into the room, plopped herself down at a table, removed two pairs of eyeglasses from her pocketbook. She squinted at the road atlas as if it had hieroglyphics. "Hey, it's nothing new. I'm afraid of maps," Mallon said, heaving a sigh of frustration. "I always travel like that, stopping a dozen times to ask directions. " She had driven more than an hour from Metuchen.

The waters and roads they span may not be troubled, but a lot of Pennsylvania bridges sure are. That's the finding of an American Automobile Association study that ranked Pennsylvania among the 10 states with the worst bridges. Pennsylvania ranked eighth, New Jersey sixth, Delaware 40th. "I've been singing this song for years. This is not a surprise. We are woefully inadequate when it comes to maintaining our highways and bridges," said Andrew L. Warren, district administrator for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

A pair of wins for Great Valley - one expected and one a bit of a surprise - highlighted Friday and Saturday's District 1 championship at Delaware Valley College.

AAA applauds the efforts of City Council members who are looking at ways to keep motorists and pedestrians safer on one of the most dangerous roads in the country - Roosevelt Boulevard. Something must be done. We will likely see more deaths on that road unless we do something. Why? We have a number of societal factors on a virtual collision course. As individuals, we are buying more cars and congestion is getting worse. We like "walkable communities. " We want people to use mass transit.

It's not as if the four finalists for the District 1 Class AA and AAA girls' lacrosse titles don't know each other. That is what makes the matchups between Unionville and Springfield (Delaware County) in AA and Conestoga and Radnor in AAA so interesting. The Indians and Cougars, who tied this season, will open the championship doubleheader at 3 p.m. today at Radnor, a half-hour earlier than originally announced. Radnor, which beat Conestoga in the Central League this season en route to the league crown, takes on the Pioneers at 6 p.m. Both title games were scheduled for Tuesday night, but were postponed because of wet weather.

Derek Schwandt graduated from Unionville on Friday night, leaving behind a legacy as one of the top high school tennis players to come out of this area. From the time he was a freshman, Schwandt was the epitome of class and competitiveness. Unlike most other premier players, whose accomplishments live on in memories, school records, newspaper articles and yearbook pictures, Schwandt might leave a couple of living legacies to remind others of what he accomplished. He's helping to groom a few players who, from all accounts, could help keep the successful Unionville program going for several more years.

Chaotic. Frenzied. Hectic. From the jump, the pace of the District 1 Class AAA championship game between Gwynedd Mercy and Pope John Paul II was wild, and the feeling in the gymnasium at Upper Dublin was tense. Bodies flew onto the hardwood to grab loose balls. Others fought elbows in the air to grab rebounds. It definitely wasn't pretty, and at times, it even seemed disorganized. But in the end, Gwynedd Mercy came out on top, defeating the Golden Panthers, 47-42, in a tight battle Saturday.

AN ERROR in classification pitted Audenried against host Del-Val Charter yesterday to determine the Public League's second representative in the PIAA playoffs. Audenried, which competed in the Pub playoffs as an AA squad, should instead have been classified AAA. Public League basketball chair Ben Dubin said the mistake was his and arranged the matchup to give the Rockets an opportunity to qualify for state play. The Division C Rockets took care of the rest. Behind important performances from several players, Audenried upset Division A Del-Val, 67-64.

JARRETT MCCLENTON was a little too close for comfort as a punt rolled near the Archbishop Wood sideline in the second quarter while the Vikings coaches strongly encouraged their star running back to get away from the loose ball. McClenton, a 5-8, 165-pound speedster, had already scored on a 59-yard punt return - part of his 173-yard, three-touchdown performance (all in the first half). However, with Great Valley defenders crowded around the ball, McClenton likely had nowhere to go even if he had picked up the ball.

WHEN JARRETT McClenton was around 7 or 8 years old he was no stranger to great running-back play. Long before he shared Daily News Player of the Year last season, McClenton, now a senior at Archbishop Wood, watched his older brother, Jeff, play football at Conwell-Egan. Jeff was a speedy wideout and safety in his own right, but Steve Slaton was the burner in the backfield. "He could always make the big run because he had breakaway speed," said Jarrett, who is 5-8 and weighs 165 pounds, "but he was also very physical when he ran the ball.

THREE WEEKS after Imhotep Charter thrashed West Philadelphia High, 66-6, deja vu was in full effect Saturday afternoon with the Panthers' 62-0 rout over the Speedboys to capture the Public League Class AAA championship at Northeast High field. Despite tallying 62 unanswered points en route to the title, Imhotep coach Albie Crosby delivered a post-game message, firmly reminding his team: "State Champions. Still not done. " Senior quarterback Andre Dreuitt-Parks seems to have that slogan set in his mind.
