80 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 6 - March 12, 1998 Cape boys Continued from page 79 hard, life offers wonderful oppor- tunities. "Wilson led Viking scor- ers with 23 points followed by Burton's 21 points and Hazzard's 17 points. NOTES - The Vikings will play Saturday night, March 8, against the winner of the Sallies-Seaford game, at PolyTech. Sallies is tall and features all-state point guard Danny Stroud. Cape's likely (al- most never happens) obstacles on the way to the state title should be Salesianum, William Penn, Caesar Rodney and Brandywine. A dark horse to make the final four is Sussex Central, who plays in the bracket opposite Cape Hen- lopen. But the word through the coconut telegraph is that Kaseem Miller of Central, the starting point guard, may be un- available for tournament play. The Henlopen Conference champi- onship game enjoyed firs- class officiat- Hang time. ing by the team of Bill Thomas, Sheldon Hayman and Alan O'Neill. The Cape Henlopen Little Big House will be the sight of a Saturday night doubleheader. Angie.Moon photo Losing's not nearly as much fun as winning. Late in the game, Cape knew the outcome. Milford douses Viking girls' hopes for C()nference championship By Susan Frederick goals we set for ourselves at the players throughout the game. Key A talented Milford squad snatched the Henlopen Confer- ence title from the Cape Henlopen Vikings Monday night at Sussex Tech, defeating the Cape girls by a 52-45 margin. 'Tm not shocked or surprised," said Milford coach Charles Dar- ling of the Bucs' victory. "This [conference title] was one of the beginning of the season. Cape beat us earlier in the year, but only by 4 points. This time we kept our composure better, and I think that was the difference." Key to the Milford victory was also the generalship of senior Ro- ry Kemp, who connected for a game high 15 points and threaded the ball to open inside Milford was also the defensive play of Toni Barkley, who stuck to Cape's Kim Smith and held the 20 points-per-game senior to 6 that night. "Toni Barkley is the best defensive guard in the confer- ence," said her coach. Junior Meghan Oakes paced the Viking scoring early in the game, Continued on page 81 Cape Re: gion Athletes Of The Week ADAM SCOTT Every fan of Cape basket- ball will agree that the 6-5 Scott is the Vikings' most im- proved player. Last Tuesday against Indian River, Scott was a force early in the game, drilling his "lazy" left- handed jumper, blocking shots and ripping down el- bows. Late in the game, Scott's rebounding off the defensive glass kept Indian River from any thoughts of a late comeback. SPENCER STEELE A former prolific scorer." for the Cape lacrosse team,, Steele is now on the starting, attack at Fairfield Universi-- ty. Last Saturday during al home loss to the University of Delaware, Steele firedt home three goals while dish-- ing off an assist. Steele is an-- other example of home-- grown talent overlooked byy the Blue Hen lacrosse pro- gram. Fairfield will host Noa. 5 ranked Loyola this Satur-'- O.J. WILSON In 1983 the Philadelphia 76ers just knew that Julius Erving would take them to the NBA championship. Wil- son is becoming that guy for Cape Henlopen: a refuse-to- lose, hard-nosed athlete that usually shuts down the op- ponents' high scorer while intimidating the defense with his physical drives to the bucket. "I just want to help this team get to the field house," Wilson said. Tcce00rQa00f eeat,t00d 23 but it could have been 33 had it been necessary. RORY KEMP This lithesome guard fair- ly soared around the Ravens' court Monday night to lift her team to the Hen- lopen Conference title. Throwing in 15 points, the- Bues' backcourt leader also used her 20-20 court vision to find open players behind Cape's defense for "easy pickin's" scores. Off-season, Kemp plays AAU roundball for the Delware Wildcats, based in New Castle County. Kamp to continue her career at the collegiate level next year. People Continued from page 79 four different schools and was dis- missed from at least one, accord- ing to "USA Today." Roger Penske's Cart racing team and his Penske corporation have gross yearly revenues of $4 billion. No surprise that Jay Penske was ac- cepted into the prestigious Univer- sity of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business. SNIPPETS - Brad Travis (6-4, 265), Cape's all-state offensive tackle, has turned down attractive financial packages at both Divi- sion III Western Maryland and Di- vision IAA Towson State. Brad is an excellent student and has nar- rowed down his choices to the University of Delaware and James Madison. Wrix Macllvaine, Cape's all-conference guard, has turned down a chance to go to the University of Pennsylvania, elect- ing instead the University of Delaware's honors program. Carl Floyd, who is currently busy run- ning the point for Cape's basket- ball team, has been chosen to play in the June Blue-Gold all-star football game. Not a bad year for a 5-5 guy. Larry Oliver and Brad Travis will also play in the game... Here's my day this Saturday:-sit along press row for the 11:30 a.m. American East game as Boston University and Joey Beard from South Lakes, Va. - a former Slam Dunk M.V.P. edging out Joey "Hannibal" Cleckner of Steelton - challenge Delaware for the auto- matic berth to the NCAA. Then it's lunch with my sons, followed by some truck-lusting, before ap- pearing at PolyTech for Cape's tournament game. And then to Irish Eyes in Lewes to hear vinyl shockley featuring Ed Shockley and my boy Kevin Walsh. Life is good!! A person never knows what fate has in store and what personal talents will be valued by the greater society of man. I have been fortunate to be appreciated in my careers as a journalist, athlete, coach and community activist, but it's teaching where I make my liv- ing and the only positive rein- forcement I've ever heard was "You're a lot fatter than you used to be but I like you better now..." Last week my son Tom, who was a quarterback at Cape and played Division I lacrosse at UMBC be- fore transferring to Delaware, e- mailed home wonderful news. Tom is headed to Philadelphia for a regional competition and a chance to advance to the NCAA men's basketball final four. And the boy doesn't lick his talent off the bricks to use an old Philly ex- pression. Tom was the Newark winner of the "Imitate Dick Vi- tale" contest. The fact that he was the only extemporaneous Vitale in the house - O.K., bar - that didn't use cue cards seemed to sway the judges, who were already sway- ing.
