CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, January 17 - January 23, 1997 - 61 PAL wrestlers claim matcl]Les against CR The Rehoboth Beach PAL Yel- low Jackets traveled to Caesar Rodney Middle School Jan. 11 with division championships at stake at the 1997 Young Rider In- vitational. When the last match was wres- tled, the Yellow Jackets had claimed the Tot (6 and under) and Bantam (7-8) division team tides. With strong third place showings in the Midget (9-10) and Junior (11-12) divisions, the Yellow Jackets finished first overall in the 10-team field. The Yellow Jackets crowned eight individual champions in the day-long competition and had 26 wrestlers finish in the top four. Although none of the Tot division wrestlers captured individual ti- tles, they wrapped up the team championship by sending four wrestlers to the finals and one to the consolation finals. Newcomer Nicholas Priano (40 pounds), Daniel McDonald (45 pounds), Bo Bartley (55 pounds) and Brett Morris (Unlimited) each brought home second places, while Joseph D'Amico (50 pounds) brought home a third. The Bantams had to pull the team title out in the championship Outdoors Continued from page 60 That prompted Nygood and Blakeslee to cry foul. Blakeslee argued that the hearing really wasn't a public hearing and said, "They had their minds made up before the hearing." Blakeslee said he would take his complaints to the governor's office, saying that not giving more notification amounted to cheating the public. "If they are going to have a pub- lic hearing, then let's hold a hear- ing and do it right." But Charlie Lesser of Delaware's Division of Fish and Wildlife said the oversight was accidental. He said that he lost his secretary and had computer diffi- culties with printing the list of recreational fishermen addresses (attendees at public hearings sign up to get on a mailing list). "It was a computer mix up and a change of personnel," he said. Lesser added that anyone attend- ing hearings such as the Jan. 30 hearing on fishery restrictions (see the rest of this column) will be put on the mailing list if they sign up at the meeting. A decision is expected later this month on the 1997 commercial catch. Wild turkey chapter An organizational meeting to create a National Wild Turkey Federation Chapter in Sussex County will be held later this month. Don Colburn is trying to start a chapter in Sussex and hopes for a good turnout for the Thursday, Jan. 30 meeting. matches as they and Laurel were tied going into the round with each team sending three wrestlers to the finals. Connor McDonald (45 pounds) got the Yellow Jack- ets rolling when he decisioned Laurel's Matt Parker 14-4. With a chance to wrap up the team cham- pionship, Brandon Hazel came through with a 9-4 decision over Desmond Walker of Laurel. Bri- an Riggin came from twelfth seed to capture the Unlimited class championship when he pinned CR's Jon Gemill in 2:43. Thomas Murray (50 pounds) finished sec- ond for the Yellow Jackets while Dustin Charles (60 pounds) and Michael Voss (Unlimited) both finished in third. Josh Wingate (60 pounds) finished in fourth. The Midget division finished a surprisingly strong third as the Yellow Jackets filled the brackets with several first-year wrestlers. Graham Esender (50 pounds) and Cory Chunn (unlimited) brought home first place trophies for PAL at the start and finish of the divi- sion. Chunn had to rely on quick- ness as he was outweighed by as much as 50 pounds in both of his matches. Josh Weldin (55 pounds) stepped up from the Ban- Colburn notes that Delaware's turkeys have grown to a popula- tion estimated at perhaps 1,200 to 1,500 birds after being reintro- duced in 1984 in Delaware. "The wild turkey comeback is one of the [wildlife] success stories." Na- tionally, there are 120,000 wild turkey federation chapter mem- bers and there is a New Castle chapter and a state chapter, head- quartered in Kent County. It's high time for a Sussex County chapter, according to Col- burn, who says the thrill of seeing a big tom turkey strutting his stuff a few yards away is one of hunt- ing's most ethereal moments. The challenge of hunting the wily birds is one of the attractions of turkey season, according to Col- burn, who says that even the biggest buck is curious enough to investigate when something seems amiss. But the turkey has no such curiosity. He simply flies when something is amiss, making it all the more difficult for hunters. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. in room 344A of the West Building of Del Tech on Thurs- day, Jan. 30. For more informa- tion, contact Colburn at his 629- 4374 telephone number. Deer season winding down The second phase of the shot- gun season for deer is winding down with the statewide season ending Saturday, Jan. 18. The oth- er deer seasons are also winding down with hunters only having a few opportunities left to bag a buck. Archery season winds up with a Thursday, .Jan. 23 to Fri- day, Jan. 31 season and muzzle- loader hunting ends with a Jan. 20 to Jan. 22 hunting season. tam division to help the team fill weight classes and responded with a second place finish. Matt West (60 pounds) and Anthony Lynch (80 pounds) also finished second. Robert Hopkins (73 pounds) and Connor Pavlik (85 pounds) brought home third while Charles Nelson (65 pounds) came in fourth. The Yellow Jackets had only six wrestlers in the 12 weight classes, but three crowning three champi- ons brought them into third place trailing CR by only a single point. Kyle Hopkins (70 pounds) cap- tured his first title of the season when he pinned Leroy Hubbard of LF in :41. Andy Chunn (115 pounds) did the same in hissea- son-long rivalry with CR's Tom- my Maguire with a 14-4 decision. Had it not been for Brock Charles and Brendan McCarron both being in the same weight class, PAL could have pulled off at least second place. The two put on a tough match with high school level moves before Charles scored a pin in 2:29. Chad Travis (91 pounds) and Ray Tartal (98 pounds) both came to life at tour- nament with third place finishes. Final team standings (overall): 1. Rehoboth Beach PAL; 2. Lau- rel; 3. Caesar lodney.
