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.
