+ 116 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 11 - Monday, April 14, 2008 People Continued from page 114 former Cape athletes and students of mine, who just got lit up, sneaked then kicked. The boys are lucky to be doing TV inter- views, which was their choice, and not laid up in a rehab hospital permanently injured. The provo- cation was the questioning of a $700 bar tab. A good lifeguard doesn't have to save people, they control their beach before trouble arises. Good bouncers never hit people - it's all about safety and security and no matter what the job you just never get to close your fist and punch a face or kick a head. I know bouncers who couldn't fight their way out of a two-handled plastic supermarket bag, especially if the wind was blowing. And never follow a patron to the parking lot because it's the little Cape Rei00,ion Athletes Of The Week VICKERS Allen is a fastball throw- ing, curve ball hooking, 195- pound senior who two weeks ago had no feeling in two of his fingertips on his pitching hand and couldn't throw the curve. Allen is the quietly tough guy who in the sum- mer of 2007 dropped to 153 pounds while undergoing surgery and therapies for Hodgkin's lymphoma. But last Tuesday there he was in complete remission and in commission getting Cape's first win of the season. A full recovery is expected. MIKE SOYKA Coah Jimmy Young said he has coached Mike since middle school which is why he didn't hesitate to call on the lefty to save a 4-3 game with two out in the top of the seventh with the bases loaded and home run hitter Matt Parker at the plate. The count went full and the runners took off- swing and a foul. Once again Soyka needed a fastball in the strike zone that couldn't be clobbered. Strike three swinging - the game saved for Vickers and Cape. SCOTT BROZEY A 12th-grade midfielder/at- tack athlete for the Cape lacrosse team, Brozey must be better than just plain good for Cape to be in the hunt for the state title. Last Saturday Brozey went "Cape to Great" scoring the final three goals of the game including the winner in overtime as Cape came from behind to defeat Brandy- wine 8-7. "Scott and the rest of the seniors needed to win a game like this to establish themselves," coach Mark D'Ambrogi said. GERI WALLETT Geri is anll-year-old fifth- grader at MiltonElementary and a member of the Mid- Coast Gymnastics team out of Selbyville. She is a level 4 gymnast and placed first in her last three competitions including the Barb Knothe Invitational in Kennett Square, Pa., the Flips Invita- tional in York, Pa., and the Cherry Blossom Invitational in Waldorf, Md. Geri will be competing in the Nationals in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. lat- er this spring. AARON DENNIS A sixth-grade honors stu- dent at Beacon Middle School, Aaron is a long stick midfielder for the undefieat- ed U13 Atlantic Lacrosse boys team who recently de- feated "Salisbury and before that Kent County. "Aaron's natural athletic ability and work ethic enable him to do some very special things on the lacrosse field," said coach Tommy Kane. Aaron was a defensive starter this year on the Beacon soccer team. IKE FAIRLEY An unsung player only if you don't know the game, but one of the most valuable if you do. Fairley won 13 of 18 face-offs last Saturday in Cape's come-from-behind 8-7 win over Brandywine, in- cluding the crucial overtime draw. Ike wins the draw then heads to the bench and the gunners take the field. "I'm having fun," Fairley said. "Coach Lingo has taught me how to read the hands of the other player and I adjust my moves to that." skinny guys who can strike with deadly accuracy, I know a one- eyed guy and another zipper face who were bouncers in Somers Point back in the day. The late- night scene of clubs and drinking is just all the way unpredictable so be careful out there. Go on now, git! ERIN FOX Erin had two home runs and six RBIs last Thursday down to Indian River and came back home in a Tues- day slugfest against Laurel and cranked another out of the yard her fourth dinger of the season. Fox scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning on an Amanda Brittian two-out, game-winning shot over the left fielder's head. Erin is an outfielder playing mostly in right. SAVONNE SETH This junior athlete is whip- pet fast and pit bull tough and already this young sea- son she is on the. state's track honor roll in four events. Savoune ranks third in the 100m hurdles 17.1, sec- ond in 300m hurdles 50.1, had a 13.0 clocking in the open 100m and a 27.1 in the 200 meters. This was all ac- complished in races where she ran in the front with a following field lacking the bars to stay in ceil phone contact. Atlantic Lacrosse U13 team improves to 2-O Matt Kane, Logan Mathews and Michael Hopkins scored hat trick while Blake Mann, Todd Keen, Ian Size and Sean Grogan added single goals as the unde- feated the Atlantic Lacrosse U13 team made it 2-0 on the season with a 13-3 victory over visiting Salisbury.
