FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -After another long workout, Koji Uehara walked into the Orioles' clubhouse yesterday morning with his translator, trainer and masseuse following closely behind.

Police said yesterday they believe the vehicle that hit Michael Thompson, 17, of the 1400 block of Parktrail Road might have been a U-Haul truck with a large image of a prehistoric, worm-like creature called the "Tully Monster" on its side. The accident occurred at 8:46 p.m. April 1 on McClean Boulevard near Perring Parkway while Thompson was in a crosswalk, police said.

WARNING: THIS column deals only with beautiful aspects of amateur sports, for young and old. First, old: Howard County has a piece, at least, of another national soccer championship. The Camp Springs Soccer Club, which has considered Women's Soccer League of Columbia fields its home for years even though its roster counts only one Howard countian, won the over-40 women's national championship this month in Nashua, N.H. To capture the U.S. Amateur Soccer Association's Veterans Cup, Camp Springs won four straight games, surrendering just one goal, beating a Virginia team in sudden-death overtime, 1-0, and then defeating Seattle's Copa de Vida, two-time defending national titlist, also 1-0. "You'd have thought we'd won a million dollars after that semifinal," said Ellicott City's Regina Jenkins, the team's sweeper since 1981 and only player on the field for every minute of the final four games.

THE WOMEN'S SOCCER Association of Columbia, a league that was one the first of its kind in Central Maryland and has functioned independently for nearly 25 years, has decided to let the county's Department of Recreation and Parks administer its affairs. The reason seems to be a combination of growth and shortage of volunteers to cope with the multiple pains of budgeting, scheduling, rainouts, officiating and field booking, said Janell Coffman, a sports supervisor for the rec department and assistant women's soccer coach at the Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville.

CAMP SPRINGS - As raindrops trickled down their windowpanes yesterday, National Weather service forecasters said that drought conditions likely will persist through September in Central Maryland, and in much of the East and Gulf coast states. But summer showers should bring at least some relief. "The East Coast drought will slowly improve as the summer unfolds," said John E. Jones Jr., deputy director of the National Weather Service. Scattered water shortages, however, are likely to crop up during normal summer dry spells.
