For La Salle High's Brian Moore, this was the pinnacle of his career. For Chestnut Hill Academy's Wayne Crawford, it was something to build on. Both Southeastern Pennsylvania standouts recorded second-place finishes in yesterday's high school portion of the 113th Penn Relays. Crawford was the runner-up in the boys' shot put with a heave of 58 feet, 5 3/4 inches. Mike Alleman of Scotch Plains-Fanwood (N.J.) won the event with a 58-8 1/2 effort. Archbishop Carroll's Tom Cicoli rounded out the top three at 57-5.

Both men threw enough bombs to warrant a blackout. They dug hooks into ribs, crashed uppercuts into jaws, and thrilled a crowd of about 1,200 at the Blue Horizon in North Philadelphia with every brutal punch. In the end - and it came mercifully early - Rockin' Rodney Moore had just a little more firepower last night than Louie Lomeli. Moore scored a technical knockout over Lomeli in the second round of a scheduled 10-round junior-welterweight bout. Referee Rudy Battle stopped the match with only 15 seconds left in the round.

If Michael Moore wanted to a cause less of a ruckus at the TV critics tour, he could have dumped jalapeno dip onto everyone's lap. The executive producer of "TV Nation" on NBC told television critics about a piece he produced for a special in December that showed radical anti- abortionists advocating the assassination of President Clinton and members of the Supreme Court. "The people in advertising did not feel that they had enough time to try and find the right advertisers," Moore said.

Rockin' Rodney Moore, who had seemed sluggish in the first round, came back to score a devastating technical knockout over Sammy Fuentes in the second round of a scheduled 10-round junior-welterweight bout last night at the Blue Horizon. Referee Frank Cappuccino stopped the bout at 2 minutes, 9 seconds of the round. Moore, of Philadelphia, extended his winning streak to 17 straight bouts and raised his record to 27-6-2.

North Philadelphia's Rockin' Rodney Moore rocked Cleveland's Raul Torres all over the ring but didn't get what he wanted. "The guy wouldn't go down," said Moore, who scored an eight-round TKO last night in a scheduled 10-round junior-welterweight bout at a packed Blue Horizon before an estimated 1,300. Torres' corner stopped the fight after the eighth round, when both fighters were in their corners. Torres (10-6-2) took all kinds of punches to the head and body early in the fight, and by the seventh round, he was simply trying to survive.

Rockin' Rodney Moore, who acquired his nickname in his days as a part-time disc jockey at various nightclubs in the Philadelphia area, still makes people dance. Nowadays, he does it by disrupting their neurological systems, sending them into spasms and twitches and jerks. He brains them. Moore, who seemed on his way to doing just that last night, had to settle for an efficient but exciting unanimous decision over Jerry Page in a 10-round junior-welterweight bout at Harrah's Marina Hotel Casino.

Retired Municipal Court Judge Jimmie Moore announced Wednesday that he was giving up his primary-election challenge to U.S. Rep.

Who is this basketball goddess, this quiet woman who rarely loses, who rarely is denied? She is a scorer, a rebounder, a deadly shooter, a relentless worker, and a tirelessly driven player. She is the only player, male or female, to be named the Big East player of the year as a freshman, and she was so dominant so young that in 2008 Rutgers coach C. Vivian Stringer called her "the best player of this decade. " Three years later, she is a two-time NCAA champion, a two-time national player of the year, soon to be a four-time all-American.

When Rodney Moore was a teenager, he would walk into the gym slowly and timidly, staring through the cracks in the door to see if the tough guys were sparring. If they were gone, he would head inside, reasonably certain that his features would stay intact for at least one more day. "I was 17, and when I sparred with the pros, I'd get bloodied up, every time," the Philadelphia fighter, now 28, recalled. "Finally, I just started leaving if they were in the ring. Sometimes, my trainer would spot me and chase after me. " Armed with the skill that he never had as a kid, and the confidence to use it, Moore will fight Charles Murray for the International Boxing Federation version of the junior-welterweight title tomorrow afternoon at Trump Castle Casino Resort in Atlantic City.

When the Dorrances and the Elkinses and the Wanamakers wanted a new Cadillac, only one car salesman in the Philadelphia area would do - J. Hampton Moore, known to everybody as Hampy. Mr. Moore, 80, a legendary Cadillac salesman for 59 years, died Saturday at Abington Memorial Hospital. He lived in Meadowbrook. "Hampy was Cadillac personified," said Jack Lindsay, Mr. Moore's last employer, at Jack Lindsay Cadillac Inc. of Jenkintown. "In selling, the first thing you sell is yourself, and Hampy was a perfect gentleman," Lindsay said.
