FOR 23 YEARS, Bernie Walter has coached Arundel High's varsity baseball team on a field dubbed "Death Valley." Mr. Walter last month became the third baseball coach in Maryland school history to reach 400 wins (against 113 losses).His teams in Gambrills have set records for most titles at the state (7), regional (9) and county levels (14). His record this decade alone is a sterling 136-29, testament to the fact he has been able to connect with another generation of teen-agers, even as musical tastes changed from rock to rap and jeans went from tight to baggy.

Tonight's Anne Arundel County baseball championship game has added significance for Old Mill and its coach, Mel Montgomery. The No. 2 Patriots (16-4) can repeat as county champions by beating top-ranked Chesapeake (17-2) at Joe Cannon Stadium, and with a win they would give Montgomery a second prize: his 400th career victory. "It will definitely be special if we win the county championship the same night," said Montgomery, who is in his 26th season as the Patriots' coach with a career record of 399-147 (.731)

PLAYER OF THE YEAR TYLER HIBBS Arundel, pitcher Extraordinarily poised and mature, the sophomore led the Wildcats to the Class 4A state title and a No. 1 ranking. The 5-foot-10, 150-pound right-hander set pitching and batting records and also was a fine fielder on the mound and at third, establishing him as one of the area's premier "three-way players" - as coach Bernie Walter refers to him. Hibbs tied the county record for single-season wins. He was 13-1, including a no-hitter, and posted a 1.20 ERA, striking out 77 in 71 innings.

Patterson's Roger Wrenn earned career baseball win No. 400 with yesterday's 16-1 victory over city rival Dunbar at Clifton Park, becoming only the second public school coach to reach that milestone. Wrenn, 54, ranks second in public school wins among active coaches behind Arundel High's Bernie Walter (473). He has won 12 Baltimore City or Maryland Scholastic Association titles, and considers his consecutive 19-1 teams of 1982 and '83 two of his best. "When Dundalk won the states, one of those teams beat them 21-0 a week earlier.

Preseason Top 15 1. Mount St. Joseph Last season: 20-7, ranked No. 3 Skinny: With probably the two most important positions on the field manned by arguably the best two at those spots in the metro area in RHP Gavin Floyd and SS Allen Strick, the Gaels are the team to beat. St. Joe has plenty of other quality players as well. 2. Calvert Hall Last season: 22-9, No. 7 Skinny: Year in and year out, coach Snooky Binder's Cardinals are among the elite. They almost always boast good pitching, don't beat themselves defensively and they swing the bat. Ditto for 2000.

Last Sunday I cracked on Class 4A Severna Park boys basketball coach Wayne Mook for his three cupcake non-league games with 1A schools -- Annapolis Area Christian School, Spalding and Sts. Peter and Paul.Well, lo and behold, Mook, unlike most of the other coaches, doesn't have much of a say in making the schedule and pointed the finger at athletic director Andy Borland."I gave Andy a list of teams I wanted to play, and he waited too long to make up the schedule," said Mook."He didn't schedule those games until Oct. 1 and had to take who he could get. I wanted to play bigger schools."
