Dan Cook photos Above left, Cape senior Gold All-Star Julie Parseghian skies for a shot as the Blue's Tiffany Ervin of Concord moves in on defense.

Cape Rel 00ion Athletes Of The Week COREY MAHONEY Corey, a senior starter and captain of the lacrosse team, has picked up his game this preseason. A starter for the past 3 years, Mahoney has taken on the role of the head defenseman and a morale leader for Cape. In four scrimmages this year, he has shown much improvement by dominating top attack- men from some of the top teams in the nation. Corey and the rest of the Cape team will start their season on Tuesday, March 28, ver- sus Kent County, Md. Jamie, a senior middle for the Cape lacrosse team, has stepped up his play in help- ing the team to beat nation- ally ranked Upper Arlington (Ohio). Pratt dominated the midfield using speed and gritty ground ball skills. Jamie, along with tim other midfieiders (Zae Palmer, yle Archer, Eddie Saver- ese, mP and ay,  ttt eF face Kent County in their first game of the season. JENNA PAVLIK Jenna is on her way to the National Scholastic Women's Wrestling Championships this weekend in Michigan. She is the defending nation- al champion at 149 pounds and later placed second in the World Championships held in Warsaw, Poland. Last weekend Pavlik cap- tured a regional tournament in Pennsylvania and also played catcher and third base as the softball team prepares to enter the season. Good luck to Jenna in her quest for another crown. CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 24 - March 30, 2000 - 81 Continued from page 80 They always wilt! They retreat inside themselves as the world around them "kabooms" out of control. We loosely organized haphazard under-achievers of the universe just sit back and pop an- other nonalcoholic beer. You saw it last weekend during the Temple upset loss to Seton Hall. Ty Shine, a reserve guard summoned to the galaxy of stars when starter Shanee n Holloway sustained the injury bug of the new millenium - the dreaded high ankle sprain, rained down three point bombs on the heads of the Temple Owls. John Chancy just sat on the bench bug-eyed. His alter ego on the c!,urt, Pepe Sjanehez, ju: be- c00ol pressure and cold under adversity. He needed to be Bruce Davis of William Penn or some other guard who wasn't afraid to play defense. Bobby Knight's a tough guy too, but he can't hang anymore. He just sat there getting hammered by Pepperdine University. And Bobby, please deal with those eyebrows. As a member of the press, I find them very distracting. SNIPPETS - Cape graduate Matt Wiggins will graduate this spring from Vanderbilt University medical school with a specialty in radiology. Dr. Matt will intern- ship in St. Louis and hopefully someday return to seaside Lewes. WILL ALBANESE Cape's UP-pound wrestler was recently honored as a first team All-State All-Acad- emic wrestler by the state of Delaware. He is the first Cape wrestler in history to receive this honor. Will achieved a grade point aver- age of 3.9 during the first se- mester. He is only in his sec- ond year of wrestling and finished the season with eight wins. Cape's Jenna Pavlik, Dan Redard and David Redard were named to the second team. Kyle In- man got honorable mention. Ironically many insiders in Lewes affectionately refer to microbiolo- gist Barbara Wiggins, Matt's mother, as Doctor'Wiggins be- cause she's the only one who can answer exotic medical questions, although she is a reluctant consul- tant. "Barbara, my doctor told me to take this drug for inflammation of my esophagus but it's making me see double." "Hummm..Interesting .... Oh, well. Could be the doctor thought you said Galapagos. Have you been handling any iguanas late- ly?" "What?" Years ago, when Matt was in high school, the Cape Takedown Club Wrestling Boosters were moving a wrestling mat from Lewes to the high school. Super- intendent Jim Wilson, new in town, showed up to help out. We were undermanned. "Maybe Doc Higgins will come over and help us," Wilson said. I thought I was in the middle of a Gunsmoke episode. Jim meant Don Wiggins, who was later nick- named Doc Wagons because of his fleet of "Sport Futility Vehi- cles" sitting on Beebe Avenue. A family of doctors and now we fi- nally have a real one who, just like his mother, is willing to let you believe you know more than him about medical science, but the lit- tle smile always gives him away. Evidently, The Prince of Pot Nets Dan Gaffney's Metamucil Morning Program on WGMD is the place to discuss disharmony in the workplace as was recently the case with the appointment of Bill Collick as Dean of Students and football coach at Sussex Tech. "I respect Dan because that's what he does for a living," Collick told me last week. "If I was mak- ing what people say I'm making I would have packed up my boxes and moved months ago. I just wish if people had concerns about me that they would talk to me per- sonally. So far that hasn't hap- pened." You gotta love people so com- mitted to their convictions that they give tacit approval to an anonymous "Concerned Teach- ers" letter. Coaches always play under the lights, but shadows rim the playing field. Go on now, git!
