+ 118 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, April 11 - Monday, April 14, 2008 Dennis Forney photo Walt Jones, owner of Midway Par 3 and Driving Range and sponsor of the Habitat for Humanity Golf Tournament planned for Friday, May 2, has been busy sprucing up his course for the third annual benefit. Fritz Schranck Habitat golf tourney set May 2 host a guest bartender night to raise more money for the benefit. The night will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will include bar service by several past Miss Delaware crown holders, prominent business own- ers, as well as alumni members of Rehoboth Beach Patrol and Dewey Beach Patrol. Jones is currently looking for tourney sponsors and silent auction items for the guest bartender night. Some of last year's auction items included a 10xl0 Persian rug from Smart Kingston; a private charter fishing trip on a 65-ft. yacht; trip for two to Park City, Utah for a week; and a trip for a family to their choice of tropical destinations. Other donations of merchandise and in-kind services will be most appreciated. Contact Jones at 302-366-0366 Ext.127. The Sussex County Habitat For Humanity Annual Golf Outing is sponsored by Diamond State Financial Group, Midway Par 3 and Driving Range, Starboard Restaurant, 92.7 WGMD-FM and the Cape Gazette. Shaun Jones and Midway Par 3 in Lewes are busy preparing for the third annual Sussex County Habitat for Humanity Golf Outing. Featuring thousands of dollars in prizes, the shotgun start tourney will begin at 4 p.m., Friday, May 2, at the Midway Par 3 and Driving Range. All proceeds for the event will help Habitat build simple, decent homes in partnemhip with low- income families in Sussex County. "The event was started with the intention of eventually funding the complete construction of one Habitat for Humanity home, which has a rough cost of $100,000. Eventually, we hope to move on to fund several homes," said Jones. For a $50 entry fee, players receive greens fees, a barbecue supper and commemorative T- shirt. There will also be prizes for closest-to-the-pin shots on all 18 holes of the course. On Thursday, May 1, tourney sponsor Starboard Restaurant will Cape golfers get first win of season After dropping its first match of the 2008 season, the Cape Henlopen High School golf team bounced back with its first win on April 3. The "Vikings hosted Delmar High School's squad on Rehoboth Beach Country Club's front nine, and won 170-210. Sophomore Casey Anderson won medalist honors with a 41, his best score of the year thus far. Senior captain Dino Nardo fol- lowed Anderson with a 42, while Dan Scrutchfield joined the Viking scorers with a 43. Junior Tristan Karsnitz completed the four-player collection with his 44. Devon Medd shot a 46 for his second competitive round. "I played pretty good. It started to rain on the sixth hole, and my grips got slippery. I parred 9, though," said the freshman. The team,s next match was scheduled for April 7 when it was to host upstate golf powerhouse Salesianum. Over the April 5-6 weekend, however, Scrutchfield fell and hurt a wrist during a skateboarding session, and took himself out of competition for a while. The injury didn't help the Vikings, who could have used another low round from Scrutchfield. The Salesianum squad whacked the Cape team, 152-172. Karsnitz shot the best score for the Vikings that day, with a 42. "I did pretty good. I had several pars and one or two doubles," he said. Anderson and Medd tied for next best for Cape, with a pair of 44s. Medd said, "I got into my groove. My swings were smooth. I'm really comfortable with this course, because I play here a lot." Anderson said, "It was a good round, considering the freezing conditions. My hands were numb. GOLF Scan Toner had an admittedly bad round with his 60, after play- ing pretty well during the Delmar match. "It was just awful," he said. Matthew Kersey shot a53 in his second varsity match. On April 8, the team traveled to Maple Dale Country Club to play the Dover High Senators. The Vikings slipped again, this time losing 168-184. Anderson led his team again with a 45. "The course was real- ly wet, and the greens were all different. SOme were fast and some were slow. I took a triple bogey on the last hole, and that killed me." Nardo and Karsnitz both shot 46, one stroke behind Anderson: Toner was fourth best that day for the Vikings with his 47. Thus far it sounds like the Vikings are having a little more trouble this season than the team's usual stellar regular season record. Perhaps the improving weather will also help improve their games. The squad hosted Indian River High School Thursday, April 10, and then travels to Shawnee Country Club Monday, April 14, to play the Lake Forest Spartans.
