Some athletes make their college decisions in sealed-off bedrooms, shortly after pulling out their hair. Others do so at the kitchen table, surrounded by friends and family. Last night, star lineman Ray Kane, of Archbishop Carroll, announced his final verdict in a car. "I went down to see the Villanova-Pitt basketball game at the Spectrum," Kane said. "I'd been doing a lot of thinking. On the way home, I turned to my father and said, 'I'm going to Virginia.' " The 6-4, 240-pound Kane, who played full time at defensive tackle and part time at offensive tackle, last month was named Lineman of the Year in connection with the Daily News All-Scholastic Football Team.

Primarily recruited as a defensive back, Womack said last night that, because of his 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash, the Cavaliers have told him that he might play other positions in the future.

Second-ranked Virginia went down to the wire with No. 14 Stephen F. Austin at University Hall in a second-round NCAA women's Midwest Regional contest yesterday, but unlike some other notable teams that have already fallen, the Cavaliers managed to land on their feet in the final seconds. The play that saved Virginia (28-2) from joining No. 1 Penn State, No. 5 Purdue and No. 8 Louisiana State on the pile of also-rans in this year's event occurred with four seconds to play, when Dobbins High graduate Dawn Staley penetrated and dished off to 6-foot-5 Heather Burge, who made a shot from underneath the basket to give the Cavaliers a 74-72 victory.

Edgar Friedrichs quietly left the Interboro School District 41 years ago, and his principal wrote him a recommendation that was cryptic at best. The fifth-grade teacher at Prospect Park Elementary had "fulfilled his teaching responsibilities" and had "a good rapport" with peers and parents, Robert Castle wrote. The letter concluded: "I would be happy to discuss any further observations with a prospective employer. " But none called. Friedrichs had been allowed to quietly resign from the Delaware County school amid allegations that he molested some of his students, including a boy who said the teacher raped him in a book closet.
