Palm Beach Lakes track and field coach Jerome Groover once again has an excellent group of girls hurdlers this season, perhaps his best ever. They'll get a chance to showcase their talent this weekend at the Florida Relays in Gainesville. Groover said he has received approval from the Florida High School Activities Association to enter four of his hurdlers in the college division shuttle relay, Lawson provided they run as an unattached foursome in other words, not as Palm Beach Lakes High. Groover said the foursome for the shuttle hurdle relay will be chosen from among Sharianne Lawson, Jerkita McClorin, Lasheba Barnes, Antoinette Wilks and Tareal Lurry. Lawson is listed as one of the nation's top prep hurdlers in the April issue of Track & Field News. "This is something I've Second baseman Scott Grossi, who will play at Duke next year, has missed the past three weeks with a pulled abdominal muscle. Right-fielder Trevor Piestor suffered a broken nose and hairline fracture of his cheekbone when hit by a pitch in a 12-inning loss to Vero Beach early this month. Q They play baseball in the Glades, too: Can't blame Jim Reynolds, the baseball coach at Glades Central, if he was feeling a little giddy after a 2-0 victory against Wellington. "We felt, myself included, like we had won the World Series," Reynolds said. 1 It's the first time Glades Central has beaten Wellington in baseball. Noteworthy: The Diadora Senior Showcase boys and girls soccer matches, originally scheduled for Saturday, have been moved to Tuesday at Lake Worth High School. The games, which will feature the top senior players from the area, will begin at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $4. For more information, call John Webb at (561) 433-4188. By Jorge Milian Palm Beach Post Staff Writer '1 CORAL GABLES Dyral' McMillan, who led the University of Miami in rushing two seasons ago, has left the team. r McMillan said Wednesday he quit because of his unhappiness at being switched from tailback to' fullback this spring. f College football r UM coach Butch Davis indicate ed Wednesday he hoped to change-: McMillan's mind, but the player says there is no chance of that happening. 1 "I'm not coming back for next" year. I know that,' said the junior.. McMillan started UM's first three games at tailback in 1997,' but missed the rest of the year, after injuring his shoulder and; received a redshirt. : : McMillan's injury allowed for the emergence of 1,000-yard rusher Edgerrin James and back-up James Jackson. With James and Jackson returning next season, Davis decided to move McMillan to fullback' where he was to compete with' Steve Dorsey High Schools always wanted to do, and with our experience and talent I thought maybe this was the year to try it," Groover said of entering the college division race, which will start at 2:45 p.m. Friday. The girls certainly will be familiar with the surroundings. The three-day meet, which begins today with some multi-events competition, will be held at the University of Florida's Percy Beard Stadium, site of the state high school meets where Palm Beach Lakes has won five consecutive state titles. Groover said the time he submitted to the meet officials was 55.8 seconds for the 400-meter shuttle hurdles, which means they'll have to average 13.95 seconds a leg. Lawson's fastest 100-meter hurdles time last year was 13.83. Santaluces shuts down Leonard "That's within reach. I'm pretty sure they're going to go up there and hold their own," Groover said. "The girls are excited." Wellington catcher out for season: Wellington senior catcher Kyle Gabbard, who played at Cardinal Newman last year, is out for the remainder of the season with a chipped bone on his patella (kneecap). Wellington coach Scott Benedict said Gabbard, the Wolverines' leader in home runs (3) and RBI (14), injured the knee while in a rundown between bases against district rival Palm Beach Lakes last Friday. Benedict said three sophomores Robbie Orton, Bo Diaz Jr. and Justin Rader will share the catching duties the remainder of the season. Orton played solidly behind the plate in Wellington's win against John I. Leonard Saturday night. Diaz is the son of former major leaguer Bo Diaz, and Rader might have the strongest arm of all. Injuries have taken their toll on the Wolverines the first half of the season, although Gabbard's is the only season-ending injury. Nina Armstrong went 2-for-3 with three runs scored and a triple, Kristina Laari went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases, Jennifer Stump went 2-for-3 with one stolen base and two RBI and Jessica Chase went 2-for-4 for Palm Beach Lakes.

Leonard Koyai fatm Beacn at fatm seacn sharpens Cardinal Newman at Jupiter By Paul Pedersen Special to the Palm Beach Post WEST PALM BEACH It's a major accomplishment to reach 300 wins as a coach. It's even more impressive to close in on the milestone in secret. "My team isn't even aware of this," said Santaluces Softball coach Rudy Reimsnyder, who recorded career win No. 295 in a 7-0 victory against John I. Leonard on Wednesday night. "It definitely will be nice to reach the 300-win plateau," said Reimsnyder, who has won all his games over 16 years at Santaluces. "But we've put that behind us and haven't focused on it this season." Even though his Chiefs (16-2) might not know about his approaching a major milestone, they are at least playing as if they did. Freshman Karin Edwardson, whose last outing was a shutout of Lake Worth, improved to 4-1 with her two-hit (both singles) shutout of the Lancers (6-10) at Veterans Park. .. Santaluces provided Edward-son, who had eight strikeouts (44 for the year) in the win, with plenty of run support. The Chiefs pounded out two doubles and two triples in their eight-hit attack. Second baseman Nichole Mos-chetti went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a RBI in the win. Catcher Nadine Young added two RBI. Center fielder Jackie Pavone and left fielder Christine Sweeney each had a triple in the win. Santaluces was also aided by three crucial errors from Leonard. "We simply didn't show up to play tonight," John I. Leonard coach Pam Walker said. "We committed too many errors." . Reimsnyder, who has taken two teams to the state semifinals, is excited about his young 1998 team. "When you get great pitching, defense and hitting, all the pieces ' come together and it's a joy to coach," said Reimsnyder, who has no seniors this year. (5), Crawford (5), Guerrero (7) and Lanier.

' McMillan said he was told that the fullback, rarely used as a ball carrier in Davis' offensive system,-would see more work. "I didn't run the ball once', during the (four) days I was out at practice," McMillan said. 4 McMillan also said he was under the impression that the switch, to fullback was "temporary" but( found out recently that it wasn't. Davis said he met with McMillan on Monday and tried to talk the,, player out of quitting. "We had a long conversation," Davis said. "I told him that, clearly, it's in his best interest (to stay at UM)." McMillan said he hasn't given much thought to playing football at another school and added he might give up the sport altogether. McMillan led the team in rushing during the 1996 season by gaining 565 yards. ; Noteworthy: Michael Lawson has been moved from defensive tackle to defensive end. Lawson, an Atlantic High School graduate who started five games last season, made the switch this week after starting defensive end Derrick Ham was lost for the rest of spring practice with a torn pec toral muscle. Defensive tackle Nick Nettles, a freshman from Wel lington, underwent surgery after, separating his shoulder Saturday during practice. Nettles will miss the rest of spring drills, but is expected to be ready for fall prac-i tice. . . .
