By Susan Frederick Cape softball cruised to a 12-2 victory over Polytech on Monday afternoon, April 17, as Bill Cor- drey's Vikings remain in the thick of battle in a talented Henlopen Conference and look to a sched- ule loaded with the best of New Castle County later in the season. "We're at the midway point in the season. We've had a good start. What we have to do is beat the teams that we should beat and play to get some wins from some of the toughest ones." Junior pitcher Maggie Lingo, now at 7-2 on the season, fanned nine Polytech players in Mon- day's game and walked only one. "When you've got an excellent pitcher, you've got an excellent chance.

Juice Wiltbank. D. Bruce Vavala. Answer - D. Juice doesn't follow lacrosse! Write your own joke for A and B. And so last week I messed up twice on the same athlete, Joey Vavala. I could lie and say I just wanted to get a rise out of Bruce, which. would be like boosting the volume on a Metallica CD. Joey Vavala scored three goals in a re- cent victory VAVALA over Sanford. Without wearing my reading glasses that translated into one goal. And I got Joey again by a mistranscription of my own notes in the 16-2 victory over PEOPLE IN SPORTS Dave Frederick Caesar R0dney. I credited all goals by a guy named Joey to my pal Joey Cahill. I be messin' up' big time because one of the goals came from Joey Vavala. Did Big Daddy Bruce take all this s,ddy reporting lying down?
