And where is there a law that boats have to be named after women and the cap- tains should be man7 How about a make trip aboard the Blue Leroy? TOUGH LOSS- The passing last Monday of former Salisbury State football (44-11-1) and wrestling coach Mike McGlincbey deeply touched thou- sands of athletes and scores of coaching colleagueswho respect- ed Coach McGlinchey's talent for motivating young men to achieve excellence. McGlinchey had been a guest speaker at several Cape Henlopen sports banquets over the years and was a personal. friend of former Cape Henlopen coaches Rob Schroeder and Bit! Collidk. McGlinchey really was an "Iron Mike", fit and healthy and hard as steel. When he was first diagnosed with a neural mus- cular disorder in 1989, there was deep concern among his coaching peers. I remember stories of McGlincbey dedicating himself to the weight room and getting slronger. That's what real athletes do, they fight back. Losing a mus- cular, high energy dynamo of a motivating coach, with strong family values, to a progressively weakening muscular disease frankly kind of sucks. It is a faith tester for all his friends. But Coach McGlinchey left a legacy of confronting adversity head on. It would just be easier if he were here to do the coaching. SNIPPETS- Cape basketball player Terry Hazzard had a big weekend. Friday night at the Blue-Gold extravaganza, the point guard won the slam dunk contest besting Dwight Young. On Saturday night Terry scored 15 points in the statewide Blue- Gold all-star game and placed second in the slam dunk cq0test. And then on Sunday Hazzard was chosen to the Delaware Broad- casters and Sportswriters all-state fn'st team. There was genuine excitement in the Cape dug-out following last Tuesday's 1-0 shutout victory over Indian River. The impressive part was that guys who didn't play were jumping for joy talking about their contributions to the win. It's nice to see the team con-" cept actually working. Congratu- lations to coaches Barry Lynch and Tim Clousen. It was also inspiring to see Cape Athletic Director Bud Hitchens raking the infield after the game. Hey Bud, you missed a spot!... And now, ebonics actually found in a Dodge Dakota truck brochure: "Jack be nimble. Jack be quick. Jack got big tires and a five-speed stick." Go no now, Jack. Gift Cape lacrosse opens se.ason with. two strong wins; outscores Cambridge, Cll00flana 29-7 By Dave Frederick The Cape Henlopen lacrosse team is out of the blocks like gang busters as the Road War- riors of Coach Steve Aubrey have outscored Cambridge O5- 4) and Christiana (14-3) by the combined score of 29-7 to open the season 2-0. "We're playing good team ball and solid defense," Aubrey said. "Winning on the road is never a guarantee and it's a credit to the kids that they have remained fo- eu.d.'= Billy "Bingo" Lingo was the scoring machine against Cam- bridge scoring six goals while dishing off four assists. The rest of the scoring parade included Scott Steele 3, Josh Wyatt 2, Ryan Short 2, and sin- ami e goals by Derrick Quillen and e Walls. Sophomore Matt Hall had an impressive game at close de- fense leadfng the team in ground balls and take-aways; Rich "Slimdaddy" Welsh and Jimmy Derrick also played well for the defense. Goalie Mike "Eggy" Golder spent lonely time in the goal on- ly recording four saves. Back-up goalie Billy Brennan also had a pair of fourth quarter saves. Jamie Pratt (face-offs) and Brett Williams (long stick mid- die) saw playing time while working their way into the varsi- ty picture. Last Monday the Vikings of Cape out-hit and out-scored the Vikings of Christiana 14-3 be- hind four goals by the "Mad Stork" Ryan Short. Other goals were scored by Josh Wyatt 2, Scott Steele 3, Billy Lingo 3, Jamie Walls and Derrick Quillen 2. "We're a team not based on one or two players," said Scott Steele who as a freshman played on the team that reached the state finals. "We don't play Sallies or Caesar Rodney until the last two games of the season," Steele said. "People aren't looking at us as the team to beat so we will just see what happens." Face-off specialist Matt Mar- tin was insWamental in the victo- ry winning 11 of 18 face-offs. After hosting Mt. Pleasant on Thursday, March 27, the Vikings will play in the Mt. SL Joseph's tournament on March 29 in Baltimore, Maryland. Cape will play Archbishop Curley (where's Monsignor Me?) in the first game at 10:30 and then play the winner of Sidwell Friends and Mt.

"Having a catcher like Ryan (Whibley) behind the plate makes my job a whole lot easier. Last year we would screw up at the end of games but now we,re playing solid defense." DEVON SCOTT Devon =Toot" Scott can scoot around the base paths.
