Dan Cook photos 3. The match went into overtime and Cannatelli came out on top with a 5-3 decision. By Dave Frederick Cape Gazette staff The match started late but was over quickly, which gave football fans time to get home for the sec- ond half of the Sugar Bowl which was also over quickly for Notre Dame. "We coach the kids to come out hard and score points and go right for the pin," said veteran Sussex Central head coach Phil Shultie after his team's 54-18 victory. "That's what Caesar Rodney usu- ally does to us. We e a good team and they are a great team. It's all relative on an, given in this Sport." Sussex Central started aggres- sively, led by a 43-second pin at 112 by Scotty Lawrence. Also pinning for the Golden Knights were Brandon Shultie (103), Shane Sockriter (119), Steve Brown (!35) B rock,.u_e&heiro -}Gtpe!s!i'revor Ricker at 130 and R(mdy Osorio at 445 also decked their opponents in two and 14 pins, along with a forfeit to Con- nor McDonald at 125.

SHEMIK A BLUE DEVIL - Cape's Division I prospect at point guard, Shemik Thompson, back after a Christmas vacation campus visit to New Britain, has been offered a basketball scholar- ship and has verbally committed to play for Division I Blue Devils of Central Connecticut State Uni- versity. "I visited and liked it. They of- fered and I accepted," Thompson said while watching the Cape wrestling match Wednesday night. Central Connecticut is 4-9 on the season having lost to such pro- grams as Michigan, Davidson and St. Bonaventure. The Blue Devils defeated Delaware, Dec. 6, 63-60, which does beg the question as to why Blue Hens coach Monte Ross hasn't visited the Little Big House. Howie Dickenman is the head coach at CCSU and his team has averaged 18 wins a season over the last eight years. He has been Northeast Conference Coach of the Year three times. The Blue Devils play in the Northeast Con- ference. Visit www.ccsubluedev- for all the latest in Blue Devil athletics. Congratulations to a great kid and to all those who helped him along the way. CLIMBERS ARE CRAZY - Climb a mountain range in the winter time and die from the cold or disappear into a crevice or carafe and all I can say is nice try .and better luck next time. 1 watched four straight hours on the Discovery Channel of Sherpas lefiding adventurous types with too much disposable income and time up the face of Mount Everest where ghettos of orange tents dot the base camps. Here's the deal: climb the mountain without using the un- derpaid and "Geez, ain't they cute little Buddhists" Sherpas, then I'll be impressed. I read where most Sherpas don't make enough mon- PEOPLE IN SPORTS ey to afford the high-tech equip- ment carried in on the backs of. porters from Katmandu to base camp. I also learned that a female- Sherpa is called a Sherpani. "Yes, my dad was an German- American mountain climber and my mother was a Sherpani, but for the school unit count they always list me as 'other but ! prefer Ger- man Sherpa'" And don't start that "I'd like to see you climb Everest," because if I wanted to focus on that I'd have just as good a chance of dy- ing as the hundreds of bodies left up there. Plus, I ain't losing no limbs or digits to climb a stupid mountain, because even if I suc- ceeded I wouldn't get props back here in coastal Delaware because no one wants to get stuck talking to amazing feat-With-no-feet per- son. SCREWY DEWEY - Ever been cuffed to a bench inside the Dewey Beach police station? Hundreds of local readers are bobbing their heads up and down and wondering, "How does he know that?" I love Dewey in the morning and covered'all the Wayne Kursh Seven Sisters road races the last two yearL I wrote that Dewey Beach is not the town that never Continued on page 98
