SHIN SPLINTS COULD be any of the following injuries that cause pain in the front of the leg between the knee and ankle. Runners, dancers, fitness walkers and basketball players are especially prone to this progression.* SOFT TISSUE INJURY: Twists and pulls can break down the soft tissue of tendons, ligaments and muscles, leading to inflammation and pain. Even without a pull, however, hard exercise can overwork the muscle cells and start inflammation. (In some people, repeated overuse can lead to compartment syndrome.

A painful case of shin splints prevented Zach Linkous from playing in UMBC's 14-5 victory over Richmond on March 1 and limited him to a little time during man-up situations in Saturday's 15-8 loss to No. 2 Johns Hopkins, but the senior midfielder bounced back nicely on Tuesday night. Linkous (St. Paul's) recorded two goals and one assist in the Retrievers' 15-6 thumping of Mercer and did not appear to be affected by his injury. “I thought he looked really good,” coach Don Zimmerman said Thursday morning.

Four miles, four times a week. For almost 40 years, I was hooked on the exhilaration, perspiration and relaxation of running. Despite knee and gout flare-ups that repeatedly suspended my regimen, I'd always return to the trail ASAP. Then, several summers ago, I severed my hamstring water-skiing after an extra-long run and hobbled through autumn. I was just beginning to jog that winter when I was diagnosed with three abdominal aneurysms. Following stent implantation surgery, I spent another six months champing at the bit. I was cleared to walk as much as I wanted and pushed myself vigorously.

I ran track this past year at school and I still run during the summer. Toward the end of the season, I developed shin splints. I thought they would go away, but they are getting worse. What can I do?Many people refer to any pain that occurs in the leg between the knee and the ankle as shin splints. We want to be more specific than that in answering your question because certain kinds of pain in this area of the leg can indicate serious conditions such as a stress fracture.If you run your fingers along the front of your leg below the knee, you can feel a sharp-edged bone called the tibia.

What is the best post-workout snack? Also, how soon should I eat after exercising? "You'll get the best bang for your buck taking in fluids and carbohydrates within the first two hours," says Robin Spence, registered dietitian for the cardiovascular program at Union Memorial Hospital. Recent studies suggest that you should be getting protein as well, and many experts say eat within the first hour after exercise. Spence's favorite post-workout snack is a homemade fruit-and-yogurt smoothie, a healthful way to get carbs and protein in one shot.

When the Baltimore County cross country championships begin today at Oregon Ridge, Milford Mill's Mike Mamo, the defending county champion, won't be healthy enough to defend his crown.Mamo, who has been hampered by shin splints and stress fractures in his legs, said participating in the county meet is "out of the question."Mamo, 17, also said his doctor is going day-to-day before deciding whether the first-team All-Metro runner can defend his regional championship next week."Sometimes, you can rest two days and it feels like it's OK, but it really isn't," said Mamo, from the office of his doctor, Marty McGinty, who is also the trainer for the Baltimore Spirit of the National Professional Soccer League.

WIMBLEDON, England -- The Monica Seles melodrama has simmered down here on the eve of the premier grass-court tennis tournament.But if Seles, the former top-seeded woman, fails to produce a clearer excuse for her late withdrawal Friday, she could be fined up to 3,800 pounds, or about $6,200, tournament officials said.Yesterday, a daily newspaper in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, reported that Seles' injuries also include damage to an arm and may be more serious than originally believed and could force the world's top-ranked female player, a Yugoslav who lives in Florida, out of the last Grand Slam event of the season, the U.S. Open in September.

MAHWAH, N.J. -- Before she took the court against the No. 1 tennis player in the world, the reporter in Baltimore's Andrea Leand was unsatisfied."I really thought her whole press conference was unsubstantial," Leand said. "It answered one thing, that she is going to do what she wants to do."About the only item of substance that came out of the event that attracted reporters from around the world to the sleepy town of Mahwah, N.J., site of the $150,000 Pathmark Tennis Classic, is the knowledge that Monica Seles has a Yorkshire terrier named Astro.

Despite dreary skies that threatened to produce a thunderstorm, the No. 2 Patriots used their skills to capture the Class 4A East region championship at North County High School in Ferndale yesterday. Old Mill, the Anne Arundel County titlist, posted 142 points to collect its third regional crown in the past four years and 19th since 1981. That history of success continues to be major motivation for the Patriots.

With most of its attention already focused toward Friday's playoff opener in Milwaukee, the Blast surrendered a 16-10 decision last night to the lowly Cleveland Crunch in a regular-season finale at Baltimore Arena that typified the home team's underachieving campaign. A crowd of 4,782 on fan appreciation night watched the visiting Crunch - at 15-28, long eliminated from postseason play - outscore the home team 11-4 in the second half to win going away. One of the only bright spots for the Blast (18-26)

Take your pick. Either your child is an overweight couch potato who watches TV all day, or you have a stressed-out athlete with back problems, shin splints and chronic tendinitis. Today's parents must sometimes feel those are the only options. Kids don't seem to simply go outside and play anymore. Instead, they compete. In the past decade sports camps, leagues and travel teams have been added to school athletics. Sports like soccer and baseball now have more than one season. The result is that some pre-teens are dealing with the training regimen and game schedules of elite athletes.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Ricky Bones has made consecutive starts on Opening Day and pitched for a team that won the World Series. He's also ridden the escalator down to the minor leagues, with no easy climb back up. If nothing else, Bones has proved he can adapt to any situation. Ace in a rotation, viable option in the minors. Full-time starter, full-time reliever. Just give him the ball. The Orioles have handed it to Bones, signing him to a one-year contract in late December with no assurances where his role is concerned.

PHILADELPHIA -- Pete Sampras remains too good too be true.He respects umpires, lauds opponents, signs autographs and obliges sponsors. In a more genteel age, none of this would be out of the ordinary. But after the contentious reigns of Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe, after gaudy appearance fees and seven-figure endorsement contracts eroded the game's structure, after the tennis boom and the tennis bust, Sampras still is the refreshing throwback all dressed up in white.Sampras would be excused for showing at least some signs of becoming a spoiled tennis brat surrounded by sycophants.
