By Brian Biggane Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI Right winger Dino Ciccarelli appears to be the likeliest Florida Panther to be traded before today's 3 p.m. deadline. But this isn't the way Ciccarelli wanted it. General Manager Bryan Murray said before Tuesday's game that Ciccarelli had told him he "wanted to investigate the possibility (of) moving to a playoff team," but Ciccarelli said such a move was not his choice. Ciccarelli said that when he was acquired last Jan. 16, Murray promised him he'd have a contract extension for him to sign within a few weeks. That extension now appears never to be coming. "My first preference was to stay, and it still is," Ciccarelli said. "I wanted to sign for two more years, but the way things have gone here, it's not going to happen for me." Ciccarelli, who has an option to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, has to let the team know of his plans by June 30. "I've basically told them that if they can't do it now, how are they going to do it three or four weeks from now?" he asked. "If there's no commitment from the team now, I can't think there's going to be one three or four weeks from now."

Murray said he planned to speak with Ciccarelli " once again this morning before making any move. "I want to talk to him, and then do a little talking ; myself to other people," he said. "He mentioned there are a couple of teams that he'd like to go to if they're interested, but nothing absolute." While rumors abounded that the Panthers werCVJ also listening to offers about Scott Mellanby (Phila-delphia) and Ray Sheppard (Pittsburgh), Murray reported there had been no interest in goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck. "We got one phone call, but nothing's going 6n "y there," he said.

Cardinal Newman CHEERLEADING The referee's whistle blew, and she felt a passing feeling of perfection as she realized what she had done. "I scored?" she thought. Two months ago, no player on the John I. Leonard girls lacrosse team had ever seen lacrosse. Some had never heard of it. But the Lancers became the first girls team from a Palm Beach County public school to play lacrosse, paving the road for a sport that might carve a niche for itself in the county's future. The sport was chosen by John L Leonard in an effort to satisfy Title IX regulations dealing with gender equity, but some other schools may follow suit Athletic directors from three schools Santaluces, Spanish River and Olympic Heights have expressed interest in starting lacrosse programs next season. - "Some schools created more junior varsity teams or freshmen teams, but the only way we're going to counter the numbers in football is to have a new sport for girls," said Linda Cowart, the program planner for athletics and physical education in Palm Beach County high schools. The same efforts that satisfied the Department of Education brought six girls who had never played lacrosse before out to John I. Leonard's first practice two months ago. They had 16 before the first game, and now there are 21 on the roster. The Lancers trek from Fort Lauderdale to Vero Beach to compete, mostly against private schools, including St. Andrew's and St Edward's. The only other public school they play is Sebastian River. 1 "Before the Sebastian River way down the field toward the wrong goal before she finally noticed she was headed for her own goalie and turned around. But despite dropped balls, missed shots and other minor mishaps, the Lancers have maintained a sense of humor and purpose. "We run into each other a lot, and our practices probably aren't as serious as some others, but we're just out to have fun and not concentrate on winning right now," said Collins, who scored the school's first goal and leads the team with seven. "I'm sure they'll have a more strict setting later as they get better." Not only are the Lancers building the foundation for girls lacrosse, they are creating opportunity for more girls to play college sports. "They've picked it up so quickly. There are definite college scholarships out there for these girls," said assistant coach Rhonda Loos. Loos said most of her players had never participated in sports. Arismendy is a member of the band who said she would have never played a sport if it wasn't for lacrosse, in which no one player has more experience than another. She has learned teamwork, how to work hard and keep her mouth shut She's taking pnde in "showing them we're a good team even though we just started." And because of lacrosse, she sees herself a little differently. "Now I'm one of the people who says, 'I have a game " BOYS BASKETBALL Class 6A First team Anton Paige (Wellington).
