112 F~DA~ ~,PRmE % 20~2 Cape Gazette | Lady Vikings top Ladv. Spartans 21-16 to remain unbeaten By Dave Frederick was 14-8 and the running clock was way gone. "1 told the team we haven't Cape girls' lacrosse led Saint played a complete game against Mark's last Wednesday 8-0 with any of our quality opponents, and 18 minutes left in the first half, we just lost focus early in this then 11-1 with 10 minutes remain- game," coach P.I.

By halftime the score Cape does a good job finding an Anna Frederick of Cape is closely guarded early in the game by Haley Schweizer, array of different players who can ring the bell. Jacki Coveleski had 3 for the game and rang up her 100th career goal early in the first half. There was no game stoppage and no flowers. After the game Jacki was reminded of that and joked, "Yeah, where's my flow- ers?" The game closed t6 a four-goal cushion as Cape led 15-11, but An- na Frederick found Covelski then Erin Ricker alone inside, and the Wolfe Runne neighbors cashed in. Then Frederick followed with two unassisted goals, and the lead was back to 19-12 before the book was closed on a crazy contest. Gina Voss and Maggie Delp split the goaltending duties with Delp being credited with 4 sec- ond-half saves. Ricker set a perSonal record With 7 goals, followed by Freder- ick with 6, Coveleski with 3, Allie Yeager and Sara Young with 2 apiece and Jordan Brown with 1. Cape assist leaders were Fred- erick 3, Yeager 2, Lexi Heuring, Coveleski and Brown. The Spartans were paced by Schweizer with 7, Laura Cooney 3, Catharine Armiger 2, Haley Olsen, Annie Rudolphi, ]acque- line Thomson and Morgen Moran each with 1. Cape outshot the Spartans 34- 20.

Allie Yeager, right, "beasts it up" with Megan Lee. "Hey, are you the one that whacked me eai'lier?" t6 fill these underachieving and "cool with it" slackers with posi- tive comments pointing out to them their natural gifts and how they should summon them to the surface before it's too late. I found that approach rarely works; although it makes the teacher/coach type feel a,whole lot better about imparting wis- dom. ! like the approach,"You're elf-destruction - Trust a freaking idiot and likely to stay me, I was an athlete first, that why; why not skip the in-be- nothing in second, idiot tween part of addictions and petty Crimes with no chahce of during my formative being successful and just go years in school, which qualifies straight to prison, and that way me to be a group leader of a sup- port group titled Sabotaging Your Own Life. I recently heard tales of four talented athletes reaching all the way down into middle School who are failing classes and acting the fool in the c ammunity. The usual tactic is you'll be younger when you get out." Paydays for Play,Day - There were a lot of spectators inside Legends Stadium Wednesday night for the Sussex Tech at Cape lacrosse game, and every- body without an administrator pass or press credential or who wasn't a Cape athlete in uniform who played another sports con- test that same day had to pay. I'm credential guy, so what do I care? But some parents who went to Cape and had kids at Tech, and one morn who paid $20 to get her tribe into the sta- dium, didn't like it. I told them I don't agree with it either, but no one asked me about it. Cape has $3 million in fields, paid for by children, $4 at a time? Yeah, I know, electric bill and all that. Some sprinter asked me, "How come they don't charge for track meets?" and I answered, "Guess you ain't no real sport?" That started a whole different conver- sation about how $4 and 18 events is a better cost/reward than some stupid lacrosse game. Charging the field- I walked into Legends Stadium Wednes- day night and all I heard was how the Sussex Tech junior var- sity lacrosse team charged the field after beating Cape 7-6. "Consider it a sign of respect," I said to the Cape connected crowd of a couple. "I don't think any Ravens team had ever beat- en a Cape lax team at any level, so good for them." Later I talked to a former Cape all-state de- fender about the rivalry and he said, "It's a rivalry for them but not for us." i disagreed, respond- ing, "In a true rivalry, you cannot stand the thought of anything good happening to your rival." And if it happens at your ex- pense it's a thousand times worse. Cape versus Sussex Tech in sports is a serious two-way sports rivalry for both sides so shout it out and admit it! Bridgeton to Burgess Trophies - Cape track trophies for boys and girls are all over the place, hidden in plain sight or just plain hidden. Winning a team trophy at an invitational or con- ference or state meet is a big deal when it happens, but then athletes go on to the next com- petition, like gaining control of the remote in their own home. It is just impossible to display and categorize sports trophies. Most trophies have no names on them. Even if the trophy is dis- played as Henlopen Conference Basketball Champions 1976, no one remembers who was on that team. The Cape girls have a great chance to win the Burgess Invitational this Saturday and grab that trophy. Why not just give it to Kadijah Doughty or Ah- keesha Duffy and let them take it home and keep it? My athletes kept their sweats to give to their Continued on page 116 .... --, m
