A Springfield Township day-care center this week lost another round in its bid to convert a two-story locker-room building on its property into a classroom. Officials of La Petit Enfant Day Care, which operates out of a classroom building on the 8900 block of Hawthorne Lane, have sought to expand their operation into the locker-room building. The Springfield Zoning Hearing Board voted unanimously at its Monday night meeting to reject the day care center's application. The board did not discuss the application and turned down the application by a voice vote.

A 28-year-old graduate student has told police she has no memory of being attacked in a basement locker room at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School on Thursday morning. According to Lt. Kenneth Coluzzi of the Police Department's sex crimes unit, the woman said the last thing she remembers is punching in the electronic code to unlock the door to the locker room. She said her next recollection is of returning to consciousness on the floor of the locker room at 38th and Spruce streets and finding police standing over her, Coluzzi reported.

The third time was the charm for Marple Newtown, and defense was its key in a 75-61 PIAA Class AAAA playoff victory over Ridley last night at Strath Haven. The Tigers, beaten twice by the Green Raiders during the regular season, turned up the defensive heat in the second half to earn a berth in the state boys' basketball playoffs for the first time in school history. "We came into the locker room at halftime and said we had to leave everything on the floor," senior forward Frank Zanin said.

Two former Eagles cheerleaders have filed a federal lawsuit against 23 National Football League teams and many of their players, contending that over several years the players sneaked peeks at them through peepholes between the visiting-team locker room and the cheerleaders' locker room at Veterans Stadium. The suit, which does not include the Eagles as defendants, alleges that being able to look into the cheerleaders' locker room "was considered one of the 'perks' of being a visiting team of the Eagles.

The Rochester Knighthawks romped past the Wings 22-12 in the season opener at the Wells Fargo Center in what Wings coach Johnny Mouradian called a "slug fest" when fist fights burst out with seconds left in the fourth quarter. Wings defenseman Tom Hajek and Knighthawks defenseman Tyler Burton were ejected after exchanging punches with about 25 seconds left in the game. The game resumed but stopped about 10 seconds later as each of the 12 players on the field erupted in fights with opposing players.

From: Gonzalez, John To: Ford, Bob; Sheridan, Phil Subject: DeSean and DeShameless Have either of you ever hugged an athlete? Because I watched Howard Eskin and DeSean Jackson embrace after practice, and my retina still burns. You know that sign in the locker room that says "No autographs, please"? I'd like to add an amendment: "No touching. Stand back. Leave room for the Holy Ghost. " If you reference the Holy Ghost, you're not going to come off as the young guy. . . . OK, DeSean and DeShameless: It's a rookie hazing ritual.

You can't help but wonder about an offhand comment made by Samantha Stevenson two decades ago. She was a sportswriter trying to gain access to the Phillies locker room in 1978, in the days when women were knocking on the door of equality. They wanted access to the athletes whom only male reporters had covered for generations. What was the team's objection? "I think [then-owner] Ruly Carpenter is fighting me so hard because he thinks I'll seduce his superstars, and find out what's really going on with that team and then write the whole damn thing in some national magazine," Stevenson told The Inquirer in October 1978.

You won't find Dominik Hasek in the Buffalo locker room these days. In fact, you won't even find Hasek's nameplate in the Buffalo locker room - his stall has been taken over by rookie goalie Martin Biron. Since Hasek left the lineup indefinitely at the end of October, Biron - a first-round pick in 1995- has been the Sabres' No. 1 goalie. Last night, he came within a skate blade of shutting out the Flyers, winning, 3-1, stopping 25 of 26 shots. It wasn't Biron's idea to physically displace Hasek.

A little over a week after 16-year-old Peter Henriques was charged with murder in the beating death of classmate Nielsa Mason, a Cumberland County Superior Court judge ruled yesterday that there was enough evidence to keep him in custody. Judge George H. Stanger Jr. said he was basing his ruling partly on inconsistencies in Henriques' accounts of his actions on the day of the killing, April 28. He also noted that the youth's fingerprints were found at the scene, and that Henriques had failed to tell Mason's father of her death when he came to pick her up from track practice.
