For Long Reach's All-American long jumper JaNay Woolridge, high school has been a time for discovering her talent. It also has been a time for finding the people who recognize that talent. Woolridge has been fortunate in both respects. Scheduled to compete in the long jump tomorrow at the Penn Relays after signing for a track scholarship Monday with Missouri, the senior never long-jumped until her junior year and never ran track until high school. "I didn't even know that club track teams existed," said her mother, Renee Cooper, a three-sport athlete at Pocomoke on the Eastern Shore, a school that had no track team.

NEW YORK -- The National Basketball Association's trading deadline came and went and . . . .Tony Campbell is still a Timberwolf, Orlando Woolridge is still a Nugget, Chuck Person is still a Pacer.The New York Knicks still have the entire collection of guys whom they were offering at a what they considered bargain prices to the other 27 teams. Except, for two games, Mark Jackson, who was suspended yesterday for "conduct detrimental to the team" -- presumably complaining about lack of playing time.

Sometimes it's better when you don't get much respect from your opponents. Or so Hammond boys lacrosse coach David Griffin believes. "People underestimate us, and it works to our advantage," Griffin said, after his team pulled off one of the season's biggest upsets, an 8-7 triumph over Glenelg on April 5. First-year Glenelg coach Josh Hatmaker agreed. "We played badly without Matt Richter (mononucleosis), one of the best defensemen I've ever seen," he said. "But kudos to Hammond. They wanted the ball and the win. I hope it makes their year."

LANDOVER -- Coming into yesterday's game, the Philadelphia 76ers had dropped 15 straight games. But there's something about facing the Washington Bullets that apparently brings out the best in struggling teams.Looking to conclude their five-game homestand with a winning record, the Bullets instead will begin a five-game trip with a sense of frustration after their 114-97 loss before 14,311 at USAir Arena.During the losing streak, the Sixers lost by an average of 18.1 points. Nine games were lost by 15 or more, including a 37-point defeat to the Miami Heat on March 5 and a 35-point loss to the New York Knicks that began the streak on Feb. 9.But anything that had been pent up inside the Sixers just exploded yesterday.

LANDOVER -- Michael Adams, the team's leading scorer and playmaker, returned to action before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at the Capital Centre last night, but that was hardly enough to end the Washington Bullets' tailspin, as they lost their fourth straight, to the Detroit Pistons, 105-94.Adams, the Bullets' leading scorer, had missed three of the past four games with an injured middle finger on his left hand.The Bullets kept it close for three quarters, trailing 79-71. But the Pistons quickly moved out to an 87-73 lead and then applied greater defensive pressure to coast home.

LANDOVER -- On their recent Western swing, Washington Bullets assistant coaches Bill Blair and Jeff Bzdelik devilishly bought their troubled boss, Wes Unseld, a samurai sword as a pre-Christmas gift.Unseld might have been tempted to use it last night as a motivational tool after the Detroit Pistons handed his Bullets a fourth straight loss, 105-94, before an announced Capital Centre sellout of 18,756.The usually stoic coach, who has seldom criticized the effort of his injury-riddled team, openly questioned the commitment of some of his players for this atypical flat performance.
