30 TUESDAY, APRIL 16 - THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2013 Cape Gazette I Team places second at event By Dave Frederick fredman@capegazettelcom The Cape boys' track team has awakened from along period of dormancy. Last Saturday at the Keith S. Burgess Invitational, tl .Vikings pushed indoor state champion Caesar Rodney, got their attention and placed second in the 12-team field as the Riders won 156-133 with Sussex Tech in third with 75 points. "We lost eight points when our second-place finish in the 4-by- 400 was disqualified when a turn judge called our runner for being on the line for too many consecu- tive strides," coach Matt Lindell said, adding, Mike Miller had a test to take, which caused him to miss the shot put, costing us 4 or 6 points there. It was a major step for our program; we had athletes scoring all over the place." The Cape girts, two-time defending Division I state cham- pions, placed third in their meet with 89 points behind Smyrna with 152 and Caesar Rodney. Lake Forest was fourth with 73 and Sussex Tech fifth with 56.5 points. The Cape boys got big points in the jumps behind Jeremiah Cohen and Lucas Reis, who com- bined for 45 points in the long, triple and high jumps; and with Sam Young's eight points in the pole vault, that is 53 in the four jumping events. Mike Miller won the discus with a throw of 122-feet-10-inch- es. The Cape 4-by-100 relay team of Tyreik Burton, Raekwon Dukes, E.]. Fountain and Man- rice Mills ran 44.8, good for third; while the 4-by-200 team of Bur- ton, Dukes, Wardell Allen and tucas Reis soars in the long jump, Mills ran 1:32.06, also for third good for second place. place. Mills also placed second in the 400 meters, running a 53.5. Austin MacElrevey, second in | , t the 3,200 and fourth in the 1,600, contributed 12to the team total. In girls' events, Kadijah Doughty won the shot put with a throw of 41-9 and placed second in the discus to Sarah HiUman of Polytech.

I've taken courses in First Amendment cases and find all that freedom of infor- mation and equal access stuff fascinating. I've been a working je nalist all my adult life and mostly when someone says, "It's none of your business and why don'tyou get out of here and take that stupid camera with you," that's what I do. Last Sunday at Cape there was on my .eF m; a four-hour serious business Secrecy in sports is mostly not tryout for high school-aged good, but I'm saying it's never lacrosse girls - not including necessary. I just don't know. seniors for some Mid Atlantic Two-stroke joke- I'm thinking All Solar System Intergalactic Briggs and Stratton and leaf competitive team that will play blower and 50 to 1 mixture. I'm a few games in June. I assigned photographer Dan Cook to strafe the scene for a few color- ful shots so that if someone were to ask, "What were all those people doing at the high school?" we could respond with a few photos and information. But The Cookster was told "no photos - no stories" which would make a good reggae song. Long lenses and tall lad- ders make all things possible, and I think people in public have little right to privacy, but courtesy is in play as well. But where do the rights of the working press begin and end? When it comes to covering try- outs for travel teams or all-star practices or perhaps a scrim- mage, I really tiave no idea. not thinking Tiger Woods and where he plopped his drop after hitting a flagstick and ricochet- ing into a pond. (I guarantee you some frogman went into that pond under cover of dark- ness and snagged that ball.) Tiger dropped the ball in front of a billion people; the entire weird scenario cost him three strokes, maybe four and a real chance at being in the play- off and winning the Masters. Tiger made about $300K for his weekend round of golf, not too shabby. Forever young- Last Sunday morning Big Loser Boy layered in black looking like a manhole cover on a city side street was taking photos at the Seashore Classic 5K and Half Mare- thon. Running the 5K, Andrew Brooks, 7, from Gainesville, Va., crossed the finish line in 24:19 with Allan Quillen, 58, of Seaford right behind him. Alien said, ',Oh, to be young again," because you have to say something when a 7-year-old is giving you a taste of the "what's up?" There is always the discus- sion of how far and how often should a little person run and whether it's good for him. The same issues exist in youth wrestling, tee balland scoopers' lacrosse. A healthy perspec- tive, a dial-it-down approach is best, but right now the world of youth sports is more out of balance than ever. Say a little prayer- Sussex Tech teammates Sam Here and Victor Rueda knelt and said a little prayer before running the 3,200 meters at last Saturday's Keith S. Burgess Invitational. Victor won the race in 10:06 while Sam was fourth in 10:44. DAVE FREDERICK PHOTO ANDREW BROOKS, 7 years old, runs his 5K in 24:19. Austin MacElrevey, in lane one, respected the moment and placed second in the race, run- ning 10:11.
