Friday, Feb. 15. Cape and Sussex Tech are tied atop the Henlopen Conference Northern Division, each with two conference losses. Cape fell twice to Dover in overtime while the Ravens have lost to Cape 66- 57 and Smyrna 76-69. CAPE FORWARD TONY HAZZARD pulls up and hits win over the Knights. Hazzard scored 9 in the contest. a DAN COOK PHOTOS jumper in the 66-44 t/ ush comes to shove - Cape's Kadijah Doughty won the state shot put title Feb. 9 at fl .e University of Delaware Field House with a throw of 41-feet-7-inches on her first at- tempt. The title for the affable - glad she's on our side - and versatile athlete culminated a crazy 12 days which began Jan. 29 in an overtime basketball loss to Caesar Rodney. During the waning seconds, DeDah wasknstructed by her coaches, "Foul her," as the Riders were letting the air out of the bas- ketball with the lead. A harm- less two-handed shove by the school's record holder and state champion in the shot resulted in a 60-year-old official calling a flagrant foul, no doubt think- ing, "I'm glad she didn't push me like that." "Double Double" DeDah Doughty had 22 points and 15 rebounds in the loss. She was told she'd have to miss the next game versus Seaford and couldn't even attend, so she went to the boys' road game at Seaford which, beginning with the JV contest, resembled a demolition derby. The next day, Feb. 1, she was down at the Worcester County Rec Center in Snow Hill, Md., winning the Henlopen Conference title in the shot put. On Feb. 7, she scored 21 in a win over St. Tfiomas More, then on Feb. 8 scored 18 in a loss to Smyrna. On Feb. 9 it was Big Yellow Taxi to Newark, and before the clock struck noon, DeDah was state champion in the shot put. Imagine a classroom teacher on Monday moming, Feb. 11 asking Kadiiah, "So what's been going in in your world?" Fight the power - A tall, slender middle school athlete loaded with "maybe" potential is often described as a beanpole; and if you think about it, what the heck is a beanpole? Cape's Jeremiah Cohen bought into the things teachers and coaches said he should be doing and one result happened Feb. 9 when Cohen won the indoor state title in the high jump, clear- ing 6-feet-2-inches by a mile, then shut it down. His in-flight form was just off; it happens to power players like Jeremiah - 6-foot:3, 210 pounds of muscle and no body fat - who would make a great stand-up backer on the outside at the next level. "Jeremiah goes to class and gets his grades, always has a smile for people," said coach Matt Lindell: "He's always making his teammates laugh, but in in- terviews he gets kind of quiet." Maybe he can teach Grammy Award winners how to show a little humility.

Brianna Hall of Sussex Tech. She just does them.

She was also in the final of the 55-meter hurdles, long jump and high jump. Hall is also a member of the Ravens' swim team and will be competing in the Henlopen Conference meet Saturday, Feb. 16.
