Philadelphia and New York won yesterday in the opening round-robin singles softball squash racquets matches in the annual men's series for the Lockett Cup at the Berwyn Squash and Fitness Club. The Lockett Cup event had been held every year since the early 1920s until it was wiped out by a snowstorm two years ago. It also missed play last year, when squash racquets was in a transitional period from hardball to softball play. Yesterday the cup play was at softball for the first time in the history of the inter-city series.

Her most valuable pitching asset is not her searing, 60-m.p.h. fastball, nor is it her tricky, four-pitch repertoire. Downingtown's Courtney Hankes is a formidable softball pitcher because she stays as cool as a Popsicle. "I don't let things bother me," she said. "I think it really helps. You can't let things bother you. " Hankes had a mostly bother-free senior season, in which she fired five no- hitters and led Downingtown to its second straight Ches-Mont League softball championship, and she will be attending the University of North Carolina in Charlotte, a rising Division I softball powerhouse.

Mickey Shaw, the all-time victories leader among Washington Township softball coaches, has stepped down after 15 years. "There are a lot of factors, but the biggest one is I want to spend more time with my kids," Shaw said. Shaw amassed 311 victories, and he cited the 1993 state-finalist season and the last two years as highlights. "Those moments were special especially the last two seasons," Shaw said. "After everything that happened to this team this spring, I couldn't ask for anything more than what the kids accomplished.

When Sandy Stringham was younger, she set her sights on being a gymnast. The Rider College softball team should be grateful that Stringham eventually decided not to be the next Mary Lou Retton. The junior centerfielder from Rancocas Valley is Rider's career leader in stolen bases - she had 78 through her first 38 games - and could set more records by the time she graduates next year. The first sport she was introduced to, however, was gymnastics, at age 5. In high school, Stringham competed for Rancocas Valley as a gymnast, but to make the necessary commitment to that sport, she would have had to abandon softball.

Imagine being 11 years old and a baseball nut. Imagine being invited to attend the All-Star Workout Day by a friend, then finding out your seats are in the first row of the deluxe-box section behind first base, then being dragged onto the field to participate, and then being interviewed on ESPN and being called "a national hero. " Marty Howell wasn't dreaming yesterday. All of that happened to him at Veterans Stadium. Marty, of West Creek, Ocean County, N.J., was summoned by Stars manager Bill Cosby to pinch-hit against the Stripes in the All-Star Celebrity Softball Game.

Colleen Koch has placed softball in its proper perspective. To her, it's a game, nothing more. That's not to say Koch, a talented senior shortstop for William Tennent, doesn't love the sport. And it certainly doesn't imply she's merely an average player. But rather than worry about which colleges are recruiting her, Koch would rather enjoy her last year of high school and concentrate on preparing herself for whichever college is lucky enough to get her - as a student, not an athlete.

One hundred hits is the sign of a lot of things for a softball player. A long career. A productive career. And the approach of the end of a career. While the accomplishment is special, it usually carries a bittersweet component: Much more of an athlete's scholastic career is behind her instead of ahead. "Pretty sad," Northern Burlington senior shortstop Megan Mayernik said of the notion that she is entering her final playing days with the Greyhounds and with three remarkable teammates.

The softball went off the opponent's bat and hit Micaela Ghanayem on her right wrist. The Upper Merion senior shook it off. After all, getting hit by a foul tip is a common occurrence for a catcher. It had happened to Ghanayem dozens of times before, and just like in those practices or games, she brushed it off then, too. But later in the contest, she dove for a foul ball and heard something crack. Now that wasn't so common. Ghanayem continued playing anyway and didn't tell anyone.

Ashley Croge used to be quiet. "When I was a freshman, I never said a word," Croge said. Croge is a senior. She's an unquestioned leader of the Sterling softball team. She's a top hitter and a top defensive player. She's not quiet anymore, either. "When she's having a good day, everybody bounces off her," Sterling coach Kelly Johnson said of Croge. "She's major leader for us out there. " Croge put together one of the most memorable games of her career Monday. She was 2 for 3 with five RBIs, hitting a double and the first grand slam of her career in a 7-3 win over Haddon Township.

Baserunners kept stealing on the Sting. Megan Kern was 11 or 12 at the time, playing one of her two usual positions in the infield - shortstop or third base - for the Limerick-based softball team. The Sting was her travel team back then - still is, as a matter of fact - and the squad was playing in a tournament behind the Boyertown YMCA. In the middle of the game, her coach, Lee Trythall, decided to do something. He put Kern behind the plate. Five years later, Trythall is still Kern's coach, and he hasn't had to worry about runners trying to advance on his team since.

Hello there On a warm November Sunday in 2009, some friends decided the weather was just right for softball. At that game, played on the field of their former high school, Heidi first noticed Jack, and Jack first noticed Heidi. She was Hatboro-Horsham Class of 2003, he was Class of 2004. Though their social circles overlapped a little, they never really spoke back then. They didn't speak on the ball field, either. A week or two later, Jack and friends walked into the Brick House Tavern.

By the time Sophie Beretski's game-winning home run cleared the fence in right field she was already on second base. It's not that the two-run shot was a towering fly ball or got caught up in the wind. No, the Neshaminy second baseman was just too excited to trot around the bases - she wasn't going to slow down just because of her heroics. Instead she did the opposite. "I was sprinting so fast," she said. "I couldn't control my excitement. " Who can blame her? Beretski was responsible for three of her team's four runs as Neshaminy won in dramatic fashion, 4-2, against visiting Council Rock North on Thursday.

As do most seniors, Emily Serata feels an urgency to make the most of her final high school season. Serata has been playing with many of her Eastern High School teammates for her entire career. She's part of a core group of seniors who are three- or four-year starters. But what's different about this season, in what might seem like a paradox, is that Serata says she doesn't feel any pressure to perform. She wants to excel. She just doesn't feel as if she has to excel. "As a senior, I feel more relaxed than ever," Serata said.

A single would have been fine, Angie Carty said. "Just a poke," the Souderton senior said afterward. "Anything. " With two runners on and her team up by only a run in the second inning, it didn't matter to Carty how the ball got into play. She just knew she had to put it there. The leadoff batter delivered for the Big Red, sending an outside pitch to right field for a triple and sending two of her teammates home. The two-run triple ended up being the difference maker for Souderton on Saturday afternoon in a pivotal nonconference win over Council Rock North, 3-2. "She's one of the most aggressive on the team," Alyssa McCormick said of Carty.

The softball took one bounce and Brady Tillotson calmly grabbed it and fired to first base. Other times, the ball rolled to her instead. Sometimes it reached the Central Bucks East third baseman on a short hop. It didn't matter how the ball got to Tillotson, the pace at which it reached her, or how far she had to move from her position to get to it. The senior always reacted the same way: without hesitation. The result was the same, too: an out. Tillotson, a Bryant recruit who has been a fixture in the Patriots lineup since her freshman season, recorded six putouts Monday against Abington as C.B. East defeated the Ghosts, 6-1. "I actually think that was the most balls I've gotten in a game this entire season," Tillotson said with a laugh.
