For Scott Graham, it was a dream 15 years in the making. And when it happened, it was even better than he dreamed possible. Graham, a West Chester resident, was selected as one of the six umpires to officiate this spring's College World Series in Omaha, Neb. To top it off, Graham had the honor of working behind the plate for the championship game between Louisiana State and Miami on Saturday. It was a rare assignment for an umpire working his first College World Series. "I'm told that I was only the second one to ever do it," said Graham, still trying to absorb all that happened in Omaha.

Whether it was kickball in the backyard, races by bonfire or all-you-can-eat free-for-alls at the dinner table, Maggie Balint has always been extremely competitive. Perhaps that's why the junior pitcher for Avon Grove had second thoughts after committing to Delaware during her sophomore year. "I'm a person who wants to play the most competitive softball I can play," the righthanded slinger said. After backing out of her commitment earlier this season, Balint is contemplating offers from Ohio State and James Madison while also fielding interest from Kentucky, Missouri and Penn State.

Tim Clark singled to spark a three-run fifth inning and added a homer last night as Louisiana State eliminated The Citadel from the College World Series with a 6-1 victory over the Bulldogs. The win gave the second-seeded Tigers (54-18) a rematch against Oklahoma State tomorrow night. LSU - which lost to the Cowboys, 7-1, on Monday - must beat Oklahoma State (55-16) twice to advance to Saturday's national title game. The Citadel, participating in the College World Series for the first time, finished its season 46-14.

Ray Suplee's two-run double highlighted a record-tying, 11-run sixth inning, as Georgia buried top-seeded Stanford, 16-2, in the College World Series yesterday. The 11-run inning was just the fifth in the 44-year history of the College World Series, but the second of the day by a Southeastern Conference team. John Cohen scored two runs and knocked in two others during Mississippi State's 11-run first inning, helping the Bulldogs eliminate Georgia Southern, 15-1. Mississippi State plays Stanford in a losers' bracket game tomorrow.

Halfway through the College World Series the top two seeds are gone. No. 2 UCLA (48-16) was ousted Tuesday night in a 4-1 loss to Arizona. No. 1 Florida (47-19) had gone a day earlier, after a loss to Kent State. Arizona (45-17) and Arkansas (46-20) are in the driver's seat now, as both are undefeated in the series and play Thursday against teams with one loss. Kent State (47-19) was scheduled to meet South Carolina (46-18) on Wednesday night in an elimination game, with the winner advancing to meet Arkansas on Thursday, but rain postponed the contest until Thursday morning.

Chance Wheeless homered leading off the bottom of the ninth inning to give Texas a 4-3 victory over Baylor last night and send the Longhorns into the championship round of the College World Series, which begins Saturday. Wheeless, who had made an error that helped Baylor take a 3-2 lead in the seventh, sent a long drive to right off reliever Ryan LaMotta. The Longhorns, unbeaten in three CWS games, tied the game at 3-all in the eighth when Nick Peoples ran over Baylor catcher Josh Ford in a violent collision at the plate to score on a sacrifice fly. J. Brent Cox was the winner in relief for Texas, which is in the CWS for the 32nd time, a record.

The game was over Tuesday, and Tyler Mondile had just struck out 10 in a 6-1 win over Pennsville, but the work wasn't quite completed for the Gloucester Catholic junior righthander. In the outfield, he was seen doing sit-ups, not the easiest endeavor after pitching a complete game. And then there were jumping jacks and more sit-ups. One question quickly arose - didn't he do enough for his endurance during the game, in which he also hit a key double? Apparently not, but that also helps explain why Mondile is among the most coveted players in South Jersey.

LOS ANGELES - There was no reason, Charlie Manuel said in spring training, for stashing Freddy Galvis at triple A. The Phillies manager is enamored of the 23-year-old infielder. He adores his baseball instincts, his energy for the game, and his willingness to learn. He wanted Galvis on his bench. That lasted for three months. The Phillies acquired 38-year-old veteran John McDonald in a minor trade Thursday with the Cleveland Indians. He will supplant Galvis, who was optioned to triple A after Thursday's game, when he joins the team on Friday.

SOUTH AFRICA'S Olympic committee suspended the troubled national track federation yesterday and said athletes like Caster Semenya would not be able to compete at the Olympics or Commonwealth Games until the problems were resolved. The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee said it had now "cut ties" with Athletics South Africa, which had been put under administration this year but defied that order Saturday by reinstating its own board. The battle between SASCOC and ASA is also complicated by the apparent support for the track federation from international athletics body IAAF, which still considers ASA to be in charge of South African track and field.

For the first time in its history, Penn will play in the NCAA Division I softball College World Series. The Quakers are scheduled to play at Texas A&M on Friday at 6 p.m. in the first round. They advanced to the double-elimination tournament after earning an automatic bid with a series victory over Dartmouth to take the Ivy League championship two weeks ago. Coached by Lisa King, Penn had an eight-game winning streak in March and ended the regular season by winning seven of its last 10 games.
