It's sort of second nature. For the last 10 years, Cypress High senior Julie Adams' life has revolved around softball. Sure, there were other sports; four varsity letters in volleyball, three in basketball, recreational soccer . . . but there was always softball. Adams has excelled at nearly everything she has done.

Julie Adams nearly turned down the role that has made her a legend among sci-fi and horror films fans: Kay Lawrence in 1954's "Creature From the Black Lagoon. " But who could blame her? As a contract player at Universal six decades ago, she had played opposite Arthur Kennedy in 1951's "Bright Victory," Jimmy Stewart in the 1952 western "Bend of the River" and heartthrob Tyrone Power in 1953's "Mississippi Gambler. " And now the studio wanted her for a black-and-white 3-D horror film that was sort of a fishy version of "Beauty and the Beast.

Julie Adams was looking for a low pitch during the Southern Section 5-A softball quarterfinal game between Cypress and Fountain Valley. In the bottom of the ninth with two outs, she finally got it. The Cypress freshman, facing a 2-1 count, belted a line drive up the middle to drive in Nikki Espriu and give the Centurions a 1-0 victory at Cypress College. Cypress (23-5) will meet Kennedy in a semifinal game Tuesday. Candy Giampapa led off the ninth for Cypress by lining out to second.

Going back to the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City means Julie Adams can relive one of the greatest moments of her life--and one of the scariest. They are moments that the UCLA senior softball player remembers with joy and pain, sometimes at the same time. When she steps onto the field Thursday at Don Porter Hall Of Fame Stadium, the scene where a shoulder dislocation led to another surgery, it is no wonder that she'll do it with a little trepidation.

Going back to the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City meant Julie Adams reliving one of the greatest moments of her life--and one of the scariest. Adams returned this week to Don Porter Hall of Fame Stadium, where a shoulder injury last year led to another surgery, threatening her Olympic dreams. It was no surprise that when the Bruins' third baseman stepped onto the field, she did so with a sense of trepidation. "It's really surreal," the Cypress High graduate said.
