9'2 - CAPE GAZETTE, liday, April 10 From The Ca 3e Gazette's Traveler Series-:: CHALABALA STROKES GAME WINNER- "We can make the big play, but the routine play has been killing us all sea- son." - Cape coach Barry Lynch E.L Chalabala was the man in the spotlight for Cape Henlopen. The bags were full, and Cape was down by two runs with two outs in the bottom of the final inning against Delmar. All Delmar's sev- en runs were unearned as Cape had committed six errors with two passed balls. Chalabala stroked a game-winning double to the out- field, clearing the bases, scoring John Carter, Steve Francis and Matt Carter as Cape won 8-7 for their first victory of the season. "Adam Scott came on in relief and pitched six strong innings, throw- ing 100 pitches," coach Barry Lynch said. Cape entered the final inning down 7-2. Nick Schaefer led off the inning with a single. Prior to Chalabala's game-winner, big RBI hits were delivered by Matt Kreitzer and Theron Pavlik. Catcher Ryan Whibley was 3 for 4 for the game including a pair of doubles. The previous Thursday, March 26, Smyrna tried to give a game to the Vikings but Cape would have none of it, losing 8-7. The Vikings left 12 runners on base, including the bases-loaded twice (last inning), while Smyrna walked seven batters, hit two and committed seven errors. "We hit the ball but then we just give runs away," said Lynch. CAPE PLAYS TO BEAT THE BAND - Cape Henlopen" softball coach Bill Cordrey may run for president of the B/lnd Boosters next year, especially if "The Band" solidifies plans for a spring visit to London. "We played our last two games [both victories] missing three starters because of the band trip to At- lanta," Cordrey said. "I'm all for the kids getting those kinds of ex- periences but it makes it tough when people still expect the team to win." Michelle Manship, who thankfully "can't carry a tune in a bucket," has pitched Cape to consecutive victories over Smyrna and Delmar. Last Monday at home, Man- MANSHIP ship and bat- tery mate Julie Parseghian shut out the Delmar Wildcats, 4-0. Hitting stars for Cape were Kim Smith, who was 2 for 3 with a double and run scored, and Jackie Warring- ton, 2 for 2 with two runs scored. Warrington also had two unassist- ed double plays in the game. Cape is now 3-1 on the season. - April 16, 1998 INDOOR HOCKEY - A group of Cape field hockey players played an indoor tournament at Towson State University last weekend.

BASKETBALL AWARDS - After a delicious meal of chicken wings and sub nubs on April 5, the Cape basketball team, along with boosters and friends, ad- journed to the high school Little Theatre for the sea- son-closing . awards cere- mony. Hosted by the "em- cee who works for WAPLES free" (that would be me), John "Big Foot" Kreitzer (some Achilles cast ac- tion working for him) delivereda Senate proclamation congratulat- ing Ed Waples on his state Coach of the Year honor. Senior Delaware sports journalist George Frick then delivered a class poem to the team that they seemed to xe- ally enjoy. That motivated the em- cee to keep his prepared poem in his pocket, not wishing to get into a "battle of the old white guys po- em throw-down." Varsity awards presented by coach Waples were Rising Star - Julius Hazzard; Most Improved - Adam Scott; Out- Continued on page 93 In Oregon they fashioned their own Cape Gazette When Marilyn MUlervisited her granddaughter, Erin Bierwirth, in Mosier, Oregon last fall, she reached for her Cape Gazette to help her daughter with a eading lesson. Then she realized, with horror, that she had left her paper back in the Cape Region. Not to be daunted, Marilyn and Erin fashioned their own Cape Gazette and Mari- lyn began teaching Erin about life backeast. "Mosier's in a beautiful part of Oregon, between two touristy towns near the Columbia River: Dalles and Hood River," said Madlyn. "The Hood flows into the Columbia near the cen- ter part of the river and it's a very popular area for windsurfing. Some call it the windsuffing capital of the world." What's a honeymoon with- out the Cape Gazette? Not fearing the least for the health of their relationship, Susan Haynes and Mark Verbin of the Milton area traveled to Shark Reef on Washington state's Lopez Island last August and exchanged their wedding vows. The couple then tempered its new status with a kayaking trip through Obstruc- tion Pass. Their boat and love remained intact as did their Cape Gazette which stayed perfectly dry throughout. "We couldn't go on our honeymoo n without the Cape Gazette," wrote Susan on their retum. With that kind of good sense, how can their" relationship fail? F b. 9 00-ZT. i ra&Ta- s- r5 q I.
