CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, January 3 - January 9, 1997 - 51 People Continued from page 50 I'm walking through someone's backyard and I certainly wouldn't want public access through my yard. Ironically, I often see Judge Henley Graves jogging on the Boardwalk but never coming off the righ-of-way path. Maybe lim- ited access to Silver Lake is what has kept the wildlife hanging around. There are two sides to every story but maybe one side of this story needs to be closed. SNIPPETS-Former Cape su- perintendent Jim Wilson and his wife Diane are avid Slam Dunk To The Beach fans and at- tended almost every tourna- ment game in addition to making cameo ap- pearances in the hospitali- ty room. WILSON Wilson is to the Cape superintendency what Jimmy Carter is to the presidency. A good community dude, that Jim Wilson...Sussex County Admin- istrator Bob Stickels is also a fa- miliar face at the Slam Dunk. John Hilton, physics teacher at Cape, is the son of former all-pro tight-end John Hilton who caught Bart Starr's last touchdown pass for Green Bay. John Hilton also played for Pittsburgh so I can drop his name twice. Sports co- median Joe Conklin, a regular on WIP sports radio, was the "enter- tainment" at the Slam Dunk To The Beach Thursday night ban- quet. Conklin joked that after "Sports Illustrated" selected Tiger Woods its "Sportsman of The Year" they created a new catego- ry and chose the Cowboys' Leon Lett as "Snortsman" of the Year. Conklin also said that people shouldn't have been surprised to hear that Michael Irvin was in a motel room with two prostitutes because every Sunday he faces double coverage. I should men- tion that when a white comedian does jokes where the victim of the joke is black that black people in the audience are reluctant to laugh heartily. And that's putting it mildly. The girls basketball team is on the road Friday, Jan. 3 visiting Ursuline. The Vikings have never beaten the Red Raiders and this early season match-up should be a good barometer of how close Cape is to being a real contender at the state wide level. D.J. Hughes of Mil- ton and the University of Delaware football team was a unanimous choice for the Hospi- tality Room All Tournament Team at last week's Slam Dunk basketball festival. Unoffically D.J.was credited with over 60 full fledged snack attacks over a five- day period. "Go on now,git boy!" q300tpe boys run into double problems at Slam Dmd00: By Dave Frederick GRAY LADY DOWN! GRAY LADY DOWN! The Viking basketball ship was sunk like a World War II subma- rine last Saturday morning in the consolation game of the Mayor's Cup 78-60 by Colonel Richardson (Md.) 78-60. The 16-point victory is no indication of the dominance of the Colonials who led by 38 at at halftime 52-14. Cape started Corey Clouser, Kai Maull, Carl Floyd, Bo Hitchens and Freshman JuliusHazzard. Starters Bobby Leggins and Terry Hazzard were injured while O.J. Wilson and Olin Boldin watched from the bench. After Kai Maull scored the first basket of the game, Colonel Richardson ran off the next 23 points and led 28 to 4 at the quar- ter. Adam Scott hit a basket right before the half as Colonel Richardson led 52-14. "We lost a heartbreaker on Fri- day to Hodgson and so we came in here trying to avoid a letdown," said Coach Merill Morgan a 34- year veteran. "We pulled off the press in the second half but we had to keep a few starters in the game just to get the ball over half COUrt." Albert Mouring of Colonel Richardson scored from all over the court en route to a 38 point performance, which was six be- low his average. "It was pretty much a typical game for Albert," said Coach Morgan. Cape outscored Colonel Richardson 29-11 in the fourth pe- riod to make the final score re- spectable. NOTES: Cape should once again be healthy come the January grind. Both Terry Hazzard and Bobby Leggins are back at practice. Cape next plays at Smyrna on Jan. 7 be- fore hosting the Bulldogs of Lenny Lucas on Jan. 10. The parity in the Henlopen Conference will make this an ex- citing winter of basketball. Cape is still a conference con- tender when the team is Angle Moon photo Cape's Kai Maull passes past Col Richardson's Andy Straehli in a Mayor's Cup match. Cape Region Athletes Of The Week JERMAINE CLARK The lanky point guard from Saint Patrick's of Eliza- beth, N.J. led his team to the Slam Dunk championship, a hard fought 55-51 victory over Rice of West Manhat- tan. Clark delighted the crowd with his infectious smile, complimented by a deadly three-point shot. MERV JONES The baritone voice of PA announcers, Jones resonat- ed through Cape's Little Big House for five days and 37 games of the Slam Dunk tournament. Jones is a graduate of Philadelphia's prestigous Central High School and played football for Temple University. He is the PA guy for Temple bas- ketball and has a business based in Delaware called M.T. Pockets Productions. STRAUGHN GORMAN Straughn Gorman is no longer a state secret. Last Saturday at the Seaford In. vitational Tournament, Gor- man captured the 103 cham- pionship, recording three pins. His biggest victory was over Jody Davis of Sus- sex Central, a wrestler who beat Straughn last season. Cape placed fourth in a 10- team field. ERIC BEAMAN Eric Beaman is not a state secret at 112 pounds. He looms as a major threat to challenge for the state title in his weight class. Eric eas- ily won the Seaford Tourna- ment, recording three pins while going unchallenged in his weight class.
