Cape Region Athletes Of The Week CHELSEA REED This Milton Middle School fifth grader doesn't mind mixing it up on the basket- ball court with the boys. As a matter of fact, she is the leading scorer on the Bob WiIley and Sons team in the Milton Youth League. Last Saturday she scored 12 points to pace her team for the win in the battle of the unbeatens with Watermark find. An A honor roll stu- dent, she also excels in soft- ball and is a cheerleader for the Lewes Pop Warner League.

Dan defeat- ed Jack Huczak of Michigan in the finals. Huczak is the reigning national singles champion. Llacera, from Dewey, won $1,500 in prize money.

CAPE GAZEWrE, Friday, Jan. 25 - Jan. 31, 2002 - 91 Dan Cook photo Dan Llacera, right, took time out to talk to Dave Frederick's sports information class at Cape Henlopen High School. Llacera, considered one of the best racquetball players in the nation, will showcase the sport in the upcoming Olympics. Llacera Continued from page 90 Really, I can live anywhere be- cause all winter and spring I travel and in the summer I live in Dewey Beach. It just doesn't get much better than that." And the athletes don't get much harder and quicker than Dan. Don't let him sucker you into a game of handball off a motel wall. Dan's hands are registered and lethal. It wouldn't be a fair fight! KYLE WHARTON A junior varsity wrestler labors in obscurity and that goes with the territory. Lightweight Kyle at 103 pounds has quietly amassed an impressive record of 14-2 for the undefeated 11-0 ju- nior varsity team. "He's learning and gaining in con- fidence," coach Chris Mat- tioni said. "Kyle is where he should be for a freshman. An off-season hitting the weights should put him on the varsity.  Kyle's dad, Er- ic, is a former Cape athlete. SHAWN HOPKINS This senior track star is as good an athlete as Cape has to offer. But Shawn per- forms mostly in front of teammates, coaches and a few parents because high school track is just not spec- tator friendly. Shawn runs the hurdles and placed sec- ond the last two Saturday Tower Hill meets. He will be an important ingredient as Cape drives for a state championship this fall. People Continued from page 89 Over the last three years of cov- ering .profession football, I have had close contact with the legends of the media business. Last year in Baltimore I said "excuse me" and walked around Pat Summer- all, John Madden and Johnny Uni- tas. I'm not a fan but a fellow pro- fessional, so I couldn't ask tO take their picture, or better yet, have my picture taken with them. And so it was just "excuse me" as I passed like an barge on the Broad- kill. Summerall announced the end of his teaming with Madden that they will not do this year's Super Bowl and that's it. Sum- merall said, "I met with John on Friday in St. Louis and told him. It's been a great 21 years with John, but at some time everyone has got to move on and see what ls out there." Summerall is 71 years old. And he wants to see what's out there? Who's he think he is - Captain Speed of Lewes? SNIPPETS - The wrestling boosters did a great job putting together last Wednes- day's teacher ap- preciation night. Each teacher got a yellow rose from the stu- dent/athlete on which was Cape High wrapped nurse Peggy this mes- McKibbin "and sage from teacher Katie Cape Hen- Parkhurst at ap- Iopen preciation night. wrestlers, cheerleaders and managers: "To teach is to touch a life! You have touched the life of one of our youth. Thank you." Last Monday night I walked in- to Pizza Villa to pick up my large extra cheese and half pepperoni pie. Trudy Baynum looked at me and said, "We have a problem." I said, "I didn't do anything. I just got here." I was shown my pie, but it did- n't measure up to the Villa's rigid quality control standards. Pie No. 2 was an improvement, but still not up to standards. Finally there was a stack of four pizza pies. I work out so I could carry them. There was no 'charge. My life is weird. I wanted to deliver them to the needy, but it was dark and I thought I might get shot on the front porch with a pizza in my arms. So I took them home. There were only three of us in the house. Two were eating Cobb Salads - whatever the hell they are. I ate myself silly. So did Jesse Dog. She was drinking from the toilet bowl throughout the night. So was - don't even think about it. Go on now, git!
