74 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, January 16 - January 22, 1998 People Continued from page 73 SNIPPETS- The Plantations Fitness center seems to be kicking butt attracting new members. High school kids up through se- nior citizens find "Plantations" a comfortable place to work out...Downtown Milton also has a fitness center in the old Shockley and Reed store...The YMCA has reshaped more bodies than Scott Bland's Henlopen 76 on New Road. I prefer The Firm or pump- ing iron on my lunch hour at Cape or after school with the athletes. And I've gotten pretty strong, but it doesn't help much getting up off the couch or rolling over in bed. Those activities require elas- tic joints and pliable tendons. I have the flexibility of Stretch Armstrong in a beer cooler...Terry Hazzard, last year's Cape Hen- lopen point guard, is leading the mid-Atlantic region in as- sists as a point guard for the Del Tech, Stan- ton campus, basketball HAZZARD team...The second deer season will come to a close this weekend but I think we need a few more. Deer are darting across roads all over the local area, and if my Toyota "beefs" one of those jerkies I'm gonna be mighty de- pressed. Here's a pointer. "If you see some deer crossing the road near sundown, say at the intersec- tion of New Road and the College of Marine Studies, the chances are that they cross that road a lot in the same spot at more or less the same time. That's why they get a sign."... Congratulations to the Purcell family of Lloyd's IGA in Lewes for the public affirmation that Lloyd's is the best place to shop and eavesdrop while you "meat" and greet old friends. Everyone who signed the petition must be licking their chops...An indoor lacrosse league plays games every Tuesday night at the Midway skating rink. A roller hockey tour- nament will take place at the same location this Saturday morning. If you're driving around please stop in and check out this fast-growing and action-packed sport... The weather is about to take a turn for the worse and for those of us with 4 by 4's, it's about time. I haven't locked in my hubs since Punkin' Chunkin'. Remember to aerobically exercise in frigid weather but only outside at night when there's mixed precipitation. That is absolutely my favorite time. I can overcome a challenge just by being there, like a lift op- erator at the bottom of Mount Everest. I'm still walking the boards, so if you see me coming please heed this warning, "Go on now, git!" Angle Moon photo Sigita Cahoon creates a lane during the Milford game. Cape girls Continued from page 73 coach. "But she did what she had to do to help us win." McCullough also praised "senior leadership in Kim and Lexie [Waples]. They re- ally steadied us out there tonight." Waples scored eight of her 10 game points in the first half when Kim Smith, Cape's leading scorer, was held to five first-half points. Kim Smith finished the game with 15 points, followed by With- erspoon with 11. Darling scored 11 for the Bucs, with Silicato adding 10. In JV action, the Vikings domi- nated the Bucs 49-22 to bring their record to 3-3. Tish Jones tapped in 14 and Rochelle Maker added 13 to the Cape victory. High-powered Cape humbles Laurel 86-51, Milford 71-42 By Dave Frederick Cape has been a bad influence on its Henlopen peer group over the last week. Decent teams have left the court with bad reputations. "I don't see how Laurel has beaten anybody," said a disap- pointed Ralph Baird who traveled to the pound in support of his for- mer player B.J. Joseph, Laurel's new head coach. "Cape is just to- tally dominating them." Milford is a much-improved basketball team over previous years and stepped on the Little Big House court last Tuesday night, fresh from an upset victory over Dover, a team fading faster than Christmas lights on Rehoboth Av- enue. Milford scored the first basket and Cape proceeded to press full court and run off 14 straight points. Milford didn't know if they were coming or going but mostly they were going, as in go- ing away! "If this team (Cape) continues to work hard and play to their capabilities, nobody can beat them," said Coach Ed Waples of his 8-0 Vikings. "We expect some tough games ahead but I know our team will be ready." Cape looked much-improved in dismantling Laurel and Milford with intense defensive pressure and good ball movement. Veteran Angle Moon photo Julius Hazzard focuses on defense for the Vikings. Olin Bolden found his offensive game against Laurel scoring 24 points, while O.J. Wilson matched that total against Milford with 24 points, including a pair of three- pointers. Friday night (Jan. 16) Cape vis- its crosstown rival Sussex Central, a team with more personality characteristics than Norman Bates. The Golden Knights are big and athletic and capable of beating anybody. And as they proved last Tuesday at Lake Forest, also capa- ble of losing to anybody. But this is a game that the Henlopen Con- ference desperately needs to be a "showtime" event. A four quarter up-and-down basketball game. Brian Polk of Central needs to prove to Cape fans that he can take over a game instead of letting the game come to him. Julius Haz- zard may be the unsung sopho- more in the conference south of Slaughter Neck. Viking fans are hoping for a victory but "romp the comp" contests get old faster than a McDonald's cheeseburger. "We expect a hard and physical game over at Central Friday night," said Coach Waples. And I think the team with the most heart will win." NOTES: Cape has been using three different point guards during prime time action. Mardy Biles, Ricky Thompson and Carl Floyd have all run the show before the games were blowouts...Ricky Thompson had some dazzling ath- letic moves against Milford caus- ing Coach Waples to just shake his head and smile...Adam Scott continues to produce, getting quality minutes off the bench. The big lefty is learning how to take the ball to the basket...Ronson Burton has not slowed down in his overall complete game perfor- mance. Athletes like Burton and O.J. Wilson figure to have "big games" Friday night at Cen- tral...Adam Woods is back in uni- form after sitting out two games after hyperextending his knee. Cape Region Athletes Of The Week MATT MARTIN Matt is a great name for a wrestler and Matt Martin has certainly matured into a big-time high school wrestler. Grappling in the 152-pound weight class, 1Mar- tin shocked Billy Pressley of Smyrna last week 1.2-2, avenging an earlier 8-6; de- feat in the .finals of the Mil- ford tournament. Matt 'won by pin last Friday niight against Laurel and the; fol- lowing day pinned his way through his weight clams to win the Glasgow Invitattion- al. Martin is currently 10-2 on the season. KEVIN WALSH Guitar player Kevin spent his summers on Lewes Beach playing the guitar and now practices law in Wilmington. Or does he play at law and practice the gui- tar? "There's a guitar lying next to my bed and I play it everyday," Kevin said after a vinyl shockley performance last fall. "Kevin Walsh is the absolute best when it comes to soulful ballads," said Greg Mack. He is flawless and he is awesome. Kevin, the Melton twins and Ed Shock- Icy will be playing at Dogfish this Saturday. SIGITA CAHOON Tuesday's court battle be- tween once-beaten Cape Heulopen and unbeaten Mil- ford saw Cape starter Julie Parseghian foul out at a crit- ical point in the fourth quar- ter. Coach Josette McCul- lough looked down the bench to send sophomore Sigita Cahoon into the fray in the final crucial minutes. Cahoon answered the call, pulling down key fourth- quarter rebounds while bat- tling a very physical inside duo of Kathy Darling and Leann Silicato of Milford. ARSHAR SMITH Tall and graceful, this ath- lete is as much at home i striding along a model's run- way as battling the big girls for control of the boards. Ar- shar, along with teammate Sigita Cahoon, stepped up to the challenge Tuesday night when sophomore star Jessi- ca Witherspoon left Cape's lineup after her fifth foul. Smith not only held her own on the boards, but also stayed cool enough to sink a crucial foul shot in the final period of play to help the Vikings in their 45-41 victo- ry.
