At the rate Nazareth Academy's softball team has been producing runs the last two weeks, the question no longer seems to be whether the Pandas can repeat as Catholic Academies League champions. Instead, opposing coaches are left wondering whether the runaway train bearing Nazareth's heavy hitters can be stopped. In two games last week, the Pandas rolled up a 14-1 nonleague win at the George School April 9 and a 13-0 whitewash of host St. Basil Academy in a Catholic Academies League mismatch last Tuesday.

Holy Ghost Prep went into this season with three all-Bicentennial League players returning from last season's 12-2 league champions: Steve Matthews, Pete Foote and Deron Nardo. This year, the Firebirds are still in first place in the Bicentennial, with a nine-game winning streak after losing the opener to Bristol, and that lofty position is mainly due to the efforts of . . . Steve Matthews, Pete Foote and Deron Nardo. "This is the best hitting team we've ever had," said Ted Grabowski, who's in his 20th season as head coach.

In the latest GOP ad in South Jersey's closest state Senate race, Gov.

Imagine for a second that it was the Phillies who packed up the bats and rosin bags and left town in 1954. Imagine that all these years later, Philadelphia is an American League city and the local nine get to use a designated hitter. Imagine Jim Thome and Ryan Howard in the same lineup. "Wow," Thome responded when we ran the idea by him a few days ago. Of course, this is fantasy. Philadelphia is a National League city, and we're happy about that because it was a pleasure watching Vicente Padilla swing the bat during his time here.

Bishop Eustace pitcher Jenn Bertolino, who had her share of problems in the last two years while recovering from injuries, is looking forward to her senior year. "I didn't have a very good sophomore year," Bertolino said with a laugh. "I had stress fractures in both legs from playing basketball. Then I hurt my (right) shoulder two days before the state softball tournament final. My shoulder just popped. "The doctors told me I needed surgery and that I'd probably never play again.

The Annenberg Center announced its 1989-90 theater series the other day, and lovers of the spoken word rose as one from their haunches and erupted in a hearty huzzah. The Annenberg season will be loaded with intellectual goodies by Will Shakespeare, J.B. Priestley and Tom Stoppard, and graced by heavy hitters of the ilk of Brian Bedford and Claire Bloom. The season opens with an uncommon U.S. appearance by the Shaw Festival of Canada, which last performed at the Annenberg in 1974-75.

He ain't heavy, he's my linemate. That's one motto that would fit this season for the football team at St. John Neumann High. Coach Ed "Bubby" DiCamillo regularly uses 13 linemen, eight on offense and five on defense. The group's combined weight is 3,205 pounds - that's an average of 246 1/2 - although we cannot guarantee that ravenous appetites have not caused that number to rise since the roster was printed. Junior guard Mike Gargano and senior defensive tackle Mike Colozzo are the lightweights.

SAN FRANCISCO - Rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose, 64, who formed the band that bore his name and performed with some of rock's heavy hitters, has died. His booking agent, Jim Douglas, said Mr. Montrose passed away at his home in Millbrae on Saturday. Douglas said Mr. Montrose had been in declining health for some time, battling prostate cancer and what Douglas termed "personal demons. " Besides forming his own band in 1973, Mr. Montrose performed with a number of musicians, including Sammy Hagar, Herbie Hancock, Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs, and the Edgar Winter Group.

The newly elected president of the Pennsylvania Mortgage Bankers Association yesterday sued a former employer, contending that Commonwealth Federal Savings Bank's mortgage unit routinely paid her and other women less than men and winked at sexual harassment. Regina M. Lowrie filed the suit in U.S. District Court against Commonwealth and its mortgage subsidiary, ComNet Mortgage Services Inc., under federal and state civil-rights laws and the federal Equal Pay Act. The suit seeks back pay as well as unspecified compensatory and punitive damages and a court order against Commonwealth and ComNet preventing future discrimination or retaliation against employees.

MAYBE WE'LL soon see a national ad campaign with a local high school football player sporting a chocolate milk mustache. And saying at the end of commercials, "Chocolate milk. It does a body good. " Hey, there have been stranger developments in this world - sports portion, included - and, if asked, Josh Messina would be willing to serve. Messina, a junior, is a star inside linebacker for Archbishop Wood and he now carries 180 pounds on his 5-8 frame. Little more than a year ago, his position was outside linebacker and he tipped the scales at 150. What's an underweight guy, especially one being switched to a physically more demanding position, to do?

FORGET CANNES; the must-visit film festival this month happens tonight, in Philadelphia. It's going to be filled with heavy hitters, like the U.S. Attorney and community members who will watch the premiere work of young filmmakers from local high schools. The Voices of Youth Anti-Violence project, created by U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger, sent 32 students from four Northwest Philadelphia schools through an eight-week curriculum where they learned filmmaking, and visited the courts and other stops in the criminal-justice system.

FEELING A little porky after all the holiday feasting? Join the club. Depending on who you ask, the average American packs on from 5 to 13 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. Since we all know that New Year's resolutions are a lot of hooey, getting back on track shouldn't be a crash course of extreme dieting and overwrought exercise. Instead, keep it simple and pass the salad, something more diners are doing, according to the National Restaurant Association (NRA). Some 78 percent of restaurants in the "quick-service" category, which includes fast food, are seeing more orders for entree salads.

Seizing on an issue that could galvanize their base, some of the state's top Democrats on Friday accused Republican gubernatorial nominee Tom Corbett of encouraging his followers to suppress voter turnout in Philadelphia. The Democrats pointed to remarks Corbett made Thursday to a Republican audience in Delaware County. Noting that Gov. Rendell was calling for a 50 percent turnout in Philadelphia, Corbett said, "We want to make sure they don't get 50 percent. Keep that down. " The issue exploded after campaign aides to Corbett's opponent, Dan Onorato, posted video of the remarks on YouTube.
