Beaman managed a second place while Barlow and Graviet wres- tled back to take third. "We had a great Friday but fell apart a little on Saturday," Mattioni said. You and your team had a great season coach! Now can I borrow your VCR? CLOUD SEEDING- The state tournament committees that seed- ed this year's Delaware boys and girls basketball tournaments need to turn over the process to the State Track Committee. The Cape boys were the most consistent team in the state this year and got seeded number five while the Viking girls landed at number four seed with a record of 21-1. The process works on a point sys- tem based on number of wins ver- ...... .---.,a _f.nnnonents. That should only be phase one. rna, two should be an executive tour- nament committee which reseeds the brackets so the four best teams have the greatest chances of ad- vancing to the Bob Carpenter Center. If either Cape team brings home the prize they will have more than earned it. Spartans win comes after 27 year hiatus; Vikings' fourth quarter rally falls short By Dave Frederick Another lost Henlopen Confer- ence championship was slipping back to Cape Henlopen. Down 44-34 to Lake Forest last Wednes- day night with only 4:30 remain- ing in the ball game, the Spartans of veteran coach Bill Filasco got a little tight around the collar. "We took some bad shots, made bad decisions and turned the ball over," Filasco said. "Cape thrives off their defense and they were starting to get juiced." Bobby Leggins and Kai Maull hit consecutive baskets after turn- overs, cutting the lead to 44-38 with two minutes remaining in the ball game. Lake turned the ball over for the third consecutive trip down the court and Kai Maull, who had come off the bench for his quickness on defense, calmly "looked in" a three pointer from 18 game ,dctory streak; said a dejected Jerry Pedenaftcr tbe batt game "Maybe the law of aver- ages just caught up to us? I hope we learned something from this game." Olin Bolden stuck back a re- bound with 15 seconds remaining cutting the Lake lead to 47-45 but the Spartans held on for their first Henlopen Conference basketball Championship silie,-the firsryear the school district was consolidat- ed. "My best moment in basket- ball," said Coach Bill Filasco. "I'm happy for the kids and the school."

WINGS TO GO!- This month marks the 25th anniversary of Ti- tle IX, the federal law that guaran- tees women equal rights and equal access to sports programs. Last January the Cape Henlopen football boosters were told that buckets of chicken wings from Wings to Go would have to go be- cause of the outfall of a civil rights audit initiated at Cape three years ago, either at random, or more like it, from an anonymous complaint, which is the neighbor- hood from which the self-right- eous do most of their complain- ing. All banquets at Cape are now dessert banquets and I'm not ex- actly sure why although I'm sure there's a good reason. Division 1 schools report that males still make up two-thirds of the athletic population and almost 90 percent of Wings To Go franchises. Cape has added volleyball and soccer for its young women and has ap- proved swimming, a sport which has generated mostly female in- terest at Cape. So if we're all lev- eled up now let's go out and order some chicken. Cape Re gion Athletes Of The Week KATIE DELCAMPO Congratulations to Katie for going over 1,000 points in her basketball career. The points putting Katie over the top came in the third period against Indian River in last Tuesday's Heniopen Confer- ence Championship game. Cape surged into the lead and never looked back, eventually winning the game in a walk.away.

KAI MAULL The "Kordell Stewart n of Cape sports, Kai came off the bench in Wednesday's Heniopen Conference Cham- pionship game and made an immediate impact. Maull scored eight fourth quarter points and forced several turnovers as Cape came from 10 points down in the fourth quarter only to fall to Lake Forest 49-45. Maull played split end and quar- terback on Cape's 1996 foot- bail team.
