This was worth savoring. Lecanto, which has struggled to shed the loser label acquired through nine losing seasons, went a long way toward erasing the pain of a year gone awry in its 48-20 victory over Hudson. Though 3-7 was their final mark for 1994, it hardly seemed so in the post-game glow of a scoreboard that boasted a school-record-tying 48 points. Not since the Panthers'inaugural varsity season in 1985 had there been a seven-touchdown evening. One couldn't have come again at a better time. "It's a great way to close out my senior year," said senior James Costa, who rushed for career bests of 159 yards and three touchdowns. "If there was any way to end the season, that was it." From Lecanto's first offensive play of the night a 58-yard touchdown run by Costa that marked the longest single gain of his varsity career to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter to a second-half shutout by the defense, it was the Panthers' night to revel. Senior quarterback Todd Bandhauer completed his work on the Lecanto record book by adding another 206 yards to his single-season total of 1,441. Ramone Mohommed, who hadn't scored a single point all season, erupted for 14 two touchdowns and a two-point conversion. And, of course, Costa a 5-foot-6, 150-pound work horse ran beyond all expectations. "It was a great tribute for the seniors," fifth-year coach Ron Cline said. "You can roll together all the frustrations of Citrus, Crystal River, Hernando and Central all the games that were important to us and all the dreams we had. But the kids played with emotion and a lot of spirit. "These are kids who are real winners and leaders. They're not my flesh and blood," Cline said amid grateful handshakes from a few of his departing seniors, "but they're the next best thing." For a few hours Friday night, and for a lifetime of memories, there were none better than the Panthers. So, in some ways, their last game will never end.

Check h Out! including a 49-yarder for his longest of the season and a 21 -yard touchdown, his fourth. Hudson receiver Justin Thompson caught six passes for 106 yards and three touchdowns in the first half, but did not catch a pass the rest of the night as Lecanto recorded a second-half shutout. The Quote Book Lecanto coach Ron Cline on Costa's 58-yard touchdown run: "I didn't see it. I was over somewhere trying to re-invent the wheel on defense." JOANNE KORTH when freshman Richie Wright reached over his head to intercept Hudson's Brandon Hall at the Lecanto 35-yard-line, and freshman Joe Courier caught a 26-yard pass for a crucial first-down. The Stat Book Lecanto senior quarterback Todd Bandhauer completed 10-of-14 passes for 206 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Costa had a career-high 159 yards and three touchdowns on 13 carries. Lecanto junior Tyler Hunsinger caught five passes for 98 yards Trends & Notes Lecanto's 48-20 victory over Hudson tied the school record for most points scored in a game. The Panthers beat Orlando Luther 48-0 in 1985, their first varsity season. Lecanto needed only one play to take advantage of a fumble recovery by Salesi Vaipulu on Hudson's opening drive. Senior James Costa darted 58 yards for a touchdown on the Panthers' first play from scrimmage. Lecanto scored on seven of nine possessions each of its first six and did not commit a turnover.

Information Center Schedules, scores Lid 1 N. HOLLOW RIDGE BASEBALL There is no story here about smitten love for the game, nor the pain of leaving it behind. Wayne Garrett can turn on a baseball game and watch with nary a sliver of pain, remembrance or longing. Baseball and Garrett have danced their dance, and while baseball continues to do the twist although lately just in the wind Garrett is content to stand to the side and watch. "When I walked away that was it," said Garrett, who retired in 1980 after nine years of service with the New York Mets, Montreal Expos and St. Louis Cardinals. He turned away coaching offers because "I don't like the politics of baseball," and he won't even get involved in Little League because of the parents. "All the screaming and yelling and criticizing so badly because they expect them to be perfect at a young age," Garrett explained. "It's terrible." But Garrett, who was born in Brooksville and lived his first two years there, still makes the occasional foray back into the game. On Nov. 25, 26 and 27, he'll sign autographs at a card show being hosted by Brooksville's Joe Levine. He'll be joined at the Hernando County Fairgrounds by Hall of Famer Monte Irvin, Baltimore Orioles great Mike Cuellar, former NBA center Artis Gilmore, and former baseball players Hector Lopez and Earl Battey. It will be Garrett's first return to Brooksville in some time. His family moved to Sarasota, where he now resides, when he was 2 years old. Some relatives remained, permitting trips back for occasional hunting, but for the most part, Brooksville is all but forgotten. However, baseball, despite Garrett's seeming indifference to it, is not. How can you forget playing with Nolan Ryan and Tom Seaver, winning a World Series, seeing the world? Garrett was drafted out of Sarasota High School and signed by the Milwaukee Braves in 1965. But he never played in the majors with the Braves, who moved to Atlanta the following year, and his big break didn't come until the then-lowly Mets picked him up. It was 1969 when Garrett made his first appearance in the show, and as any Mets fan will attest, there was never a better year for the team, its players or its fans. The Miracle Mets went on to win the most improbable of world championships that season, with the likes of an unproven Ryan, Cleon Jones, Tommy Agee, and, of course, a rookie named Garrett. "Everything happened that year," recalled Garrett, who batted once in the World Series. "It was the first year I'd been to a major league spring training camp, my first time ever in New York, my first time playing in front of a New York crowd. The only guy I knew on the team was my roommate (Rod Gaspar, who pinch-ran in Game 4 and scored the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning to push New York to a 3-1 series lead). That was a great year, and it was a great group of guys." Garrett was still on the team in 1973 when it went to the World Series again, although this time it couldn't top Oakland. Garrett had probably his best season, hitting .256 with 16 home runs and 58 RBI, and added two more home runs in the Series. After eight years with the Mets, , Garrett had short stays in Montreal and St. Louis that ended in 1978, then tried a two-year stint in Japan with the Chunichi Dragons in an effort to rehabilitate an injured knee. Garrett had hoped to return to baseball in America the injury forced him to settle for just returning to America. For Garrett, however, there are none of the regrets many athletes tend to carry with them, i "It was fun, but when it was over, j it was over," Garrett said.

"With his size and the frame he's got, they're looking at (pitching) more than the shortstop picture for the pros," Sims said. "In my opinion, it's going to happen (being drafted). Where (what round) and how much (money is offered) remains to be seen." Should Arroyo opt to play for USF as a freshman, he cannot be drafted again until after his junior season. The higher he's drafted out of high school the more likely he is to go pro, though at this point he said the more likely scenario has him going to school. Arroyo also had inquiries from Florida and Mississippi State, but opted to take the sure offer from USF. "He was up front with the others that he wanted to sign early and get it out of the way," Sims said. "They said they wouldn't know if they had anything available until spring," said Arroyo, also a standout basketball player. "So I figured that if they have nothing to offer now and might not have anything then, then I might as well go ahead and take what I have now."

In the summer of 1993, he was the title game's winning pitcher when his Brooksville-based Hernando Youth League team won the Dixie Majors state championship. As a sophomore, when Hernando was 30-5 and district champion, he had 21 RBI. By making his formal decision during the NCAA's early signing period, which began Wednesday, the 6-foot-3, 180-pound Arroyo avoided having to think about his future college plans throughout his senior season. "We Bronson, (Arroyo's father) and I looked at it as something we wanted to go ahead and take advantage of, so as to not let it be a distraction during the season," Sims said. "He didn't need the stress of having to think about it all throughout the season." "I did that so I could go out and play loose," said Arroyo, who was recruited by USF as a pitcher. "I think it helps you down the road, with the draft and everything."

Arroyo, a standout pitcher and shortstop on the Hernando baseball team, said he was signing a letter of intent to play for the University of South Florida. Hernando coach Tim Sims said Arroyo turned down similar offers from Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern in order to accept one from the NCAA Division I program in Tampa. Arroyo visited all three schools, but said choosing USF was easy. "A lot of it had to do with surroundings," he said. "Mostly, I liked the coaching staff better than anybody else I talked with. It's close to home, and I like their philosophy there: Coach (Eddie) Cardieri said they'll play the toughest schedule they can in order to get better."
