CAPE GAZIw eFay, April 13r. April e19' 2001 -: 115 Viking golf team sets recOrd with 149-162 ove Milford "It was an outstanding day!" Cape Henlopen High School golf coach Jerry Domeman made no attempt to hide his emotions after his Viking squad beat Hen- Iopen Conference rival Milford on Tuesday, April 10, with an impres- sive 149-162 score. All four of Cape's scoring golfers posted rounds in the 30s, a result Dorneman said had never been equaled by any prior Cape golf team with which he'd been involved. "'Even years ago, as an unpaid assistant, with all the great golfers that have come through this pro- gram, I can't recall any team ever posting four rounds like that in a single event. This is definitely a first as far as I know." Dorneman grinned. J.J. Oakley led all players with a par round of 36 on Rehoboth Beach Country Club's front nine. His round included a 25-foot putt for birdie on the ninth that drew applause from his teammates and the spectators. "I had a good round," said Oak- iey. "I birdied the fourth hole and only had two bogeys, including a one-putt for bogey on the sixth." Oakley spoke well of his com- petition. "I like playing the guys from Milford. We know each oth- eL they're good players and they follow golf etiquette." Golf is a sport that admittedly attracts the occasionally self-ab- sorbed. On the other hand, Oak- ley's playing partner, Tyler Wit- man, was as interested in. talking about Oakley as about his own round. "J.J. played really well today. He made some great putts, includ- ing some two-putts for par from long-distance. It was fun to watch.'" Witman was no slouch either, posting a 37 for his season-best at Rehoboth. "I hit my irons really well today, and made eight greens in regula- tion. I birdied the 7th hole with an approach to two-and-a-half feet, and made a double on 4. Iwent for the green in two and fanned the shot into the water." Mark Johnson was also pleased with hig 37. "I putted excellent to- day. I birdied 6 and bogeyed 3 and 4. Basically, I listened to what my uncle [Terry Johnson] told me and had fun." Adam Talley finished the team scoring with a 39. "There was nothing too special about my round, really. I birdied 7. and drove out-of-bounds left on 9 for a double bogey. I wasn't real happy with my bogey on number 1, my last hole of the day." The April 10 wm continued an unbeaten season fbr Cape, includ- ing their April 5 win over Lake Forest High School at Rehoboth CC, 156-225 Oakley earned medalist honors with a 36, including three birdies, a bogey, and a double bogey. "I bladed my sand shot on number 8, and was lucky to make bogey on GOLF Fritz Schranck that one." Oakley said. Witman's 39 included a double and two bogeys. "I had a four- footer for par on number 3 that broke at least 6 to 7 inches and missed it." Talley shot a-40 as the third Cape scorer. "I parred l, 4 and 7, and birdied 5. My second shot on 9 was only 20 yards off the green, but I picked my chip shot and made bogey." Jason Ritthaler scored his best round of the season thus far with a 41. "I tripled bogeyed to start, and doubled 8, but the rest were pars." At press time the Vikings were to travel north to play Smyrna on April I I before spring break be- gins. The squad next hosts Caesar Rodney on April 24.
