When coach Dave MacWilliams and team vice president Drew Forrester met to discuss the state of the Spirit after last season, they realized there were two ways to proceed.One was to bring the team back virtually intact, adding only a few players.The other was to make wholesale changes.They decided that the first course was the wiser.When the Spirit opens its fourth National Professional Soccer League season at 7:30 tonight against the Harrisburg Heat at the Baltimore Arena, it will have 11 returnees.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Handshakes. Hugs. Happy hellos. Yesterday felt like the first day of camp for the Orioles as Ramon Hernandez, Javy Lopez and Luis Matos returned from stints at the World Baseball Classic. "Javy, Javy, Javy," chanted third baseman Melvin Mora as Lopez strode in. "It's like a new spring training," Matos said. "You come back and say hi to everybody. It's exciting." But all three players return to questions. Can starting catcher Hernandez develop a rapport with the team's starting pitchers in his truncated run of spring games?

Players on the Old Mill girls basketball team still were celebratingtheir 4A state championship last March at Catonsville Community College when talk began of the next season. And not from the Patriots themselves.Can you repeat as champions? What about the additional pressure of being the favorites? Will anything less than another title suffice?So much for savoring the moment.Answers to those questions, and many others, are forthcoming, as the Patriots begin their defense of the championship Wednesday night at Thomas Johnson of Frederick County.

The new fall television season starts tonight -- sort of. With NBC attempting to use the momentum of the Olympics to launch its fall lineup, while arch-rival Fox tries to counter, new series will begin premiering tonight in the earliest start of the fall season ever. But not all networks will be equally involved just yet, as a TV tradition that's been in place for more than four decades begins to lose its hold on the rhythms of prime-time programming. "Whether or not you consider this the most nontraditional fall season ever depends on what network you're talking about," Preston Beckman, senior vice president for strategic programming at Fox, said in a telephone interview.

JUPITER, Fla. - Signed to a minor-league contract one day before pitchers and catchers were scheduled to report to spring training, B.J. Surhoff started in left field yesterday in the Orioles' exhibition opener against the Florida Marlins. Manager Mike Hargrove warned against drawing conclusions based on his first lineup, but it's never too early for a little intrigue. Left field is one of the few unsettled positions on the club. Once projected as the starter, Marty Cordova is expected to receive stiff competition from Surhoff, who would get the majority of at-bats even if Hargrove settled on a platoon because he's a left-handed hitter in a league dominated by right-handed pitching.

WASHINGTON - The day after the NBA draft has the feel of the day after Christmas, as 29 clubs try to figure out just what arrived under the tree the day before. In that vein, Washington Wizards coach Doug Collins looked like the proverbial kid taking his new sled out for a post-holiday test run yesterday, appraising the three gifts, guard Juan Dixon and forwards Jared Jeffries and Rod Grizzard, the team picked up in Wednesday's draft. "We feel like we have three first-round choices sitting up here that all bring something a little bit different," said Collins.

COLLEGE PARK - Juan Dixon looked and sounded ready to start the season right now. Pound for pound, the 6-foot-3, 170-pound Dixon is considered the strongest player on the team. A preseason All-America pick, the senior shooting guard from Calvert Hall said he has been through his most rigorous off-season ever, on the court and in the weight room. He capped his summer by leading the U.S. team to a bronze medal at the World University Games in Beijing. Now, Dixon's eyes are on the start of his final go-round in College Park, and he will not have long to wait.

MINNEAPOLIS - The players, bleary-eyed and a little bitter about the way their ride ended, glanced back at a season they will never forget, and looked ahead to a new era. Barely 12 hours had passed since the Maryland Terrapins' dreams of a national championship crash-landed at the Metrodome, where the Duke Blue Devils had started with such a sleepwalk, before awakening with a fury the Terps could not match. In the wake of Saturday's 95-84 loss to Duke in the national semifinals, which put the Blue Devils in tonight's NCAA championship game against Arizona, the Terps tried to make sense of things.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - When David Segui was traded by the Orioles to the New York Mets in March 1994, majority owner Peter Angelos still enjoyed a honeymoon as the franchise's savior, Camden Yards was a novelty, "Homicide: Life on the Streets" was a cult hit and the club had just signed free-agent first baseman Rafael Palmeiro to make Segui's presence expendable. Segui never forgot Baltimore. He long hoped the team would reacquire him to help in a stretch drive, a point he made to several players on occasional clubhouse visits.

To reach yesterday's media day at Morgan State, defensive tackle Larry Tucker packed his Chevy Malibu in Central Florida and drove 14 hours through the night, such was his excitement over an event that signals the beginning of football season. Tucker's excitement may have had something to do with the role his unit -- the defensive line -- will have in determining the success of a team that was 1-10 in 1998. "We have to go out and prove something," said Tucker, a 5-foot-11, 275-pound senior who had 34 tackles last season.

Few consider it a rematch. But nobody believes it's a mismatch.A year after the United States' 15-14 overtime victory over Canada in the World Championships, the first World Cup of Lacrosse has ambitiously attempted to re-create the magic of what many consider the greatest lacrosse game ever played. A best-of-three championship series between the two countries begins tonight at Johns Hopkins' Homewood Field.However, most of the United States' World Cup team remember that game as spectators in the stands.
