Shaded games at Miami Arena; All times EDT Summaries Hurricanes 5, Panthers 3 Ciccarelli appears gone Panthers notebook By Brian Biggane Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI Right winger Dino Ciccarelli appears to be the likliest Florida Panther to be traded before today's 3 p.m. deadline. Ciccarelli met with coach and General Manager Bryan Murray before Monday's game against Carolina at Miami Arena. Speculation is that Ciccarelli told Murray that if he is not traded, he would invoke his option to become an unrestricted free agent after the season. "He said that he'd really like to investigate the possibility as far as moving to a playoff team," Murray said. Rumors in Philadelphia indicate the Flyers might be interested in Ciccarelli, 38. But Murray said his only conversation with Flyers GM Bob Clarke concerned a possible trade of defenseman Dallas Eakins, who has been playing with the Panthers' AHL affiliate in New Haven. Murray plans to speak with Ciccarelli 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." Ciccarelli has said his lone remaining goal in hockey is to win a Stanley Cup. Murray is interested in signing him to an extension beyond this season if he wants to stay. "This is a real hectic time for all of us," Murray'' said. "He has the option, but he also has a family and'; some concerns about moving. He certainly liked the" opportunity when he came here." Other Panthers on the trading block could be' Scott Mellanby (to Philadelphia) and Ray Sheppard (to Pittsburgh). Murray said there had been no interest in goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck. ' f "We got one phone call, but nothing's going on1.! there," he said. " 1 Carkner waived: Defenseman Terry Carkner,1' 32, who is in the first year of a three-year contract worth $4.8 million, was put on waivers Sunday, '-' according to a team spokesman. ' Carkner's plus-minus rating of plus-1 is the best among Panthers defensemen, but he has been a healthy scratch in three of the past five games. If he " clears waivers, the Panthers have 30 days to send him to the minors if they choose. . Conference standings EASTERN CONFERENCE !

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 pride in "showing them we're a good team even though we just started." And because of lacrosse, she sees hers? If a bule differently. "Now I'm one of the peopte who says. 'I have a game tonight' " 5n'ife,a"lh-aaiij,,Jat. Jbk JAV Jkla- aAh I C .

Three days before, still unsure of what lacrosse was, the John I. Leonard junior picked up the stick for the first time. Now she was playing in the Lancers' first game. Cradling the ball, she closed split second and . on EXTRA her eyes for took the shot. The referee's whistle blew, and she felt a passing feeling of perfection as she realized what she had done. i "I scored?" she thought 1 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 1. 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 schcxJs, including St Andrew's and St Edward's. The only other public school they play is Sebastian River. s "Before the Sebastian River Lacrosse facts PLAYERS: 12 on a team. EQUIPMENT: A yellow rubber ball and a stick or crosse with a net at the top. All players can wear gloves, but only goalies wear protective gear. MATCH: Two 25-minute halves that feature continuous play. There is a 10-minute half time. SCORING: One point for a goal. KEY TERM: Cradling (keeping the ball moving in the net). SEASON: High school teams play in the spring. However, lacrosse is not sanctioned by the Florida High School Activities Association. game, none of us had seen a real field so the ref had to walk us around and show us the lines and everything," said Amy Collins, a senior who also plays soccer. The Lancers have endured embarrassing moments. "In the first game, we brought all white balls to the game and the ref came up and asked us for the regulation yellow balls, so we had to go on a hunt for yellow," said assistant coach Chris Holley. "Now our cheer before each game is "Yellow Balls!" Against Palm Beach Day. sophompre Cary Cocker ran half- lv.:V-Av,P PB V. ajkw fc
