82 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 13 - March 19, 1998 From The Ca 3e Gazette's Traveler Series* Angle Moon photo Kim Smith tries to work her way out of a box against St. Mark's. St. Mark's drops soaring Cape girls from the sky Vikings' tourney hopes fade with 69-47 loss By Susan Frederick Cape Henlopen's soaring girls' basketball season was shot out of the sky last week when St. Mark's stopped the Vikings dead by a 69- 47 margin in the second round of the DSSAA Tournament held at Sussex Tech on Friday, March 6. The loss followed Cape's 52-45 loss to Milford in the Henlopen Championship Monday, March 2. The final two games came at the end of a 19-game winning streak put together by Coach Josette Mc- Cullough in her debut season as a head varsity coach. The games added up to only the second and third losses in a 21-3 record run- up by a team which had only one returning starter from its 1996-97 season. And the faces of the coach, the players, and the parents as they found each other on the court after the final buzzer seemed to strug- gle briefly between the granite of the season-ending loss and the grace of their 21 wins. In the end, they just hugged each other and shook their heads. St. Mark's, defeated by a 53-44 margin at the hands of the Vikings on Feb. 16, came out with a wicked full court defense to put the Spartans up by five at 15-10 at the end of the first period. Cape fans waited for the come- back; the Vikings had rebounded from a 13-7 first period deficit the first time the teams had faced each other. Led by point Michelle Albanese, however, the St. Mark's girls upped the lead to 25- 12 midway through the second period and went into the locker rooms on the smiling end of a 27- 14 score. "It was just a game that nothing seemed to go right for us," said McCullough. "We expected St. Mark's to come out on defense; we had worked on the press at practice. We just couldn't get any- thing going either way. Shots that we usually make rolled around the rim but didn't drop for us." "We thought we were up for the game," said senior tri-captain Alexia Waples. "St. Mark's came out ready from the beginning of the first quarter. I don't think we were as ready as they were." Julie Krzywicki contributed six points to put St. Mark's out in front 35-17 in the third quarter. Cape defense rallied in the fourth quarter as Jessica Witherspoon and Julie Parseghian made good on steals, and Kim Smith dropped two of her four three-pointers. But the St. Mark's squad, bent on re- Continued on page 85 Emphysema?

Bill and John grew up together in Rehoboth and the two renewed their ties during the visit. To fill in the gaps about what was going on back home, Bill and Sharon took along a copy of the Cape Gazette. There's nothing that brings people together on the beach (except perhaps the sound of caps being lifted from icy bottles or the ring of horseshoes driving stakes into the sand) like the Cape Gazette. Shown enjoying a recent edition are (back row I-r) Bill Vernon, John Flatt and David Flatt; and in front (l-r) Sharon Vernon, Karen Flatt and Kelly Flatt. The local paper brings them to neutral ground Carrie Lingo of Rehoboth Beach and Hunter Stokes of Lewes rooted for the same teams at Cape Henlopen High School before they graduated. But now they find themselves fierce rivals: Carrie at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Hunter at Duke. The two refused to have their pho- tos taken at each other's school so they had to go to neutral ground in Raleigh where they also found common ground- their enjoyment of the Cape Gazette. They are shown in front of a self-kicking machine at the Angus Barn in Raleigh.
