114 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February, 8 - Monday, February 11, 2008 People Continued from page UO I know over the last several years that Indian River has done a great job hiring strong teachers who can coach because then you get a teacher and a half for the price of one. My Georgetown buddy, Lance Keeler, answered the all call for perfect teams by reporting that the 1989 Sussex Central baseball team "ran the table to a state championship" finishing 21-0 under the direction of co-coaches Woody Long and Jim Hudson. The Cape lacrosse team of 1998 was a perfect 19-0 in winning the state championship. Cape boys track in 1978 was a perfect 10-0 and won the Division II state title. The 1981 Seaford football team Cape Region Athletes Of The Week CAILEY THORNBURG The girl plays nice but plays hard and last Saturday in the gym at the YMCA this fluid athlete put it all togeth- er and scored 30 of her team's 42 points in a victory. Cailey got her layup thing going and barely missed a shot the entire game, and even took her turn sitting out a period or two. This spring she will give lacrosse a try for the first time, and there's no reason to think she will be anything short of a great player. TONY SCARFO This 82-pound Mariner wrestler won the Henlopen Conference 82-pound title last Saturday and he is just a sixth-grader. Tony was 8-1 during the regular season - his only Ioss to Zach Howell, son of the CR coach. "Zach was injured for the tourna- ment so that opened the door for me," said Tony whose toughest bout was in the semis where he defeated Nick Bennett of Seaford. Tony is on the B honor roll and wrestles year-round. TADEO GONZALES Tadeo, of Mariner Middle School, is just in his second year of wrestling. The eighth-grader captured the 136-pound title at the Middle School Henlopen Champi- onships Feb. 2, by winning all three matches, including a 45-second pin in the first match and a 59-second pin in the finals. He came from be- hind in the semis to win 7-6. "Brandon Nichols was own- ing me but he got tired," Tadeo said. Tadeo is also an honor roll student and plans to wrestle for Cape next. PAT CAMPBELL This Council Rock, Pa. place kicker kicked 14 of 16 field goals, including five over 40 yards and one of 51 yards. He was the Class Quad A All-State kicker and will be with the Temple Owls in the fall where he has a chance to start as a fresh- man. His father, Mike, is a former Milford player and member of the Rehoboth Beach Patrol. His mother, Tammy Orton Campbell, is an Orton from Lewes and you don't get any more local. Come fall we all have a Divi- sion I kicker. SEAN LECATES A senior, 160-pound grap- pler for Sussex Central, Sean had the takedown heard round the wrestling world Feb. 1 at Caesar Rodney. Down three points with un- der 12 seconds remaining in the final bout, his team trail- ing CR by a point, Lecates drew even on a stalling call then got a takedown with five seconds remaining as the Golden Knights pinned the first loss on the Riders in 162 matches spanning 14 seasons. EMILY RITTER Freshman Emily Ritter was a Beacon Middle School athlete who landed as a Raven at Sussex Tech in Georgetown. A field hockey player in the fall and a track runner in the spring, Emily gave indoor track a try this winter and specializes in the 800 meters. Emily ran a PR of 2:34.5 in the opening leg of the 3,200-meter relay at the Henlopen Conference Cham- pionship Wednesday, Feb. 6. went 12-0 beating William Penn for the state championship. Marybeth Betts, former Cape cross country and softball player, has earned All-Academic status in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. Marybeth is a junior majoring in elementary education KALEB LEMAIRE Kaleb, an eighth-grader, won the 94-pound title at last Saturday's Middle School Henlopen Confer- ence Championships by go- ing pin, tech fall, tech fall in his three matches. Kaleb was named Outstanding Wrestler for the tournament, an award he also received in sixth grade. Lemaire was undefeated during the regu- lar season and grapples year-round approaching 100 matches a year. DEREK GAY Cape was leading Sussex Tech last Wednesday night 30 22 after a Rondy Osario pin at 152. Derek Gay, al- ways a Great Adventure, went "amusement ride" on top of Jeff Shaeffer locking in the legs, getting a pin and icing the match 36-22 with two bouts remaining. The Ravens got pins at 171 and 189 to lose 36-34. "I'm more reckless than anything," Gay admitted. "I am always con- fident I can win." Gay im- proved to 22-16 on the sea- son with 15 wins coming by pin. for the Misericordia University Cougars with a 3.2 average. Vic k i Hazzard was selected first team All-State basketball in BETTS 1976. Vicki is the mother of Lamont Hazzard, Cape's head girls basketball coach. The question is, are they the only Cape mother and son first team All-State combination? Adele Mears was second team All-State basketball in 1980 while Ellen Mendenhall made fourth team. I have been unable to find an All-State girls team prior to 1976 but I'll continue to look. The latest updated schedule for the Seven Sisters Summer run- ning series can be found at Remember, run- ners train half as much as they say they do and run twice as slow as the wish they could. Who saves DNA? Who read- ing this column can write the words behind the letters DNA? Who can adequately explain DNA without consulting a scien- tist and whatever happened to RNA? Trainer Brian McNamee claims to have saved needles and gauze pads from Roger Clemens' steroid injections "just in case," and has presented this evidence to Congress as the proof that he is telling the truth and Clemens is lying. Lanny Breuer, a lawyer for Clemens, said the "evidence" is not credible because "Who in their right mind does such a thing?' I think it's called "syringe saver syndrome." This is first and lastall-snip- pets column - just thought I'd rock a little old school. Go on now, git! Cape Little League registration set Feb. 10 Cape Henlopen Little League will hold registration for baseball and softball players ages 13-18 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, at Grotto's Grand Slam on Route I just south of Five Points.
