: 'SPORTS & OUTDOORS Cape lacrosse rolls season record up to 9-1 By Dm, e Frederick The Cape Henlopen High School lacrosse team continues to do: the ."funky chicken, :o Delaware opponents but the "slam dancing" phase of the season is about to stroll onto the schedule. Last week Cape let Brandywine "hang around" 15-9 before blow- ing out the previously undefeated Dragons of Glasgow 18-4. Cape improved to 9-I on the season with a Thursday (post deadline) home showdown with a struggling Salesianum team. "This team is different from Cape teams of the past," said coach Steve Aubrey who along with coaches Tim Mahoney and Mark D'Ambrogi have changed the Cape philosophy from mane- a-mane to a more finesse style of lacrosse. "We would rather make the pass than score. That's how we've built success. We can't rely on a few quality athletes." Derrick Quillen, the leading assist man on the Cape team, turned into a scoring machine against Brandywine scoring five goals, three coming on assists from Josh "Wallaby" Wyatt. "Billy (Linge),Josh and I know eackathe:moves reaLwell;7 Qui!len said of the trio of under- class attackmen. "I feel as good on an assist as I do scoring." Big middies got into the Brandywine scoring parade as Ryan Short and Scott Steele each drove to the net for three goals. "The crowd always screams at me to pass the ball," Short said. "I use my strengths to play the best I know how." Glasgow hosted Cape last Mon- day with a perfect 7-0 record. The Dragons are renowned for prefer- ring physical play above all else including playing defense. Cape jumped on Glasgow 11-1 in the first quarter and it was all over but the pouting. Josh Wyatt, running point on the attack, scored three goals while dishing off three assists. Billy "Badboy" Lingo cranked home four goals as Cape went on to win the game 18-4. Lost in the scoring barrage against Delaware teams has been the emergence of specialty players Dave Frederick photo Cape's starting defensemen include (l-r) Jimmy Derrick, Rich Welsh and Matt HaIL Matt Martin, face-off man and Brett Williams, a long stick mid- die going in on face-offs and man- down situations. The close defense 0ong stick- ers) Aubrey considers among the strongest in the state with 6'3" bookends Jimmy Derrick and Matt Hall sandwiching crease defense- man Rich "Slimdaddy" Welsh. "We've tried to schedule Tatnall and Friends and some of the pri- vate schools but they don't even return our phone calls," Aubrey said. "Ideally we'd prefer to play through those people in the tour- nament and meet Caesar Rodney in the finals. 'What would be a great ending to the season." Viking softball rallies to hold off Caesar Rodney 5-3 By Susan Frederkk A four-run fourth inning broke a scoreless tie and gave the Vikings enough of a scor- ing edge to hold off Caesar Rodney 5-3 on y afternoo n, April 22. The win put Cape softball at 6:1 in conference play as they looked to Sussex Central in a post- deadline game on Thursday afternoon. 'Whis was a big game," said Coach Bill Cordrey after Tuesday's action. "I knew they would come after us. They're a north- ern division team, and they had the same record as we did---6-2mgoing into this game." "The first time through the lineup, we didn't hit at all," the coach continued. "But the second time through, we did much bet- ter." The game was a pitcher's duel through, out, with Viking starter Michelle Manship striking out nine and giving up only two hits that day, while Janice Savage of CR struck out four and allowed only three hits. Jackie Warrington's fly ball to right in the fourth inning drove Carrie Lingo home for the first score of the day. Manship singled to put two Cape runners on base.

Wayne James Estate Jewelry rolled true when the pressm-e was on to capture the Blue Hen Mixed bowling title at Midway Lanes which is cleverly located in the Midway Shopping Center. The Wayne James team (catchy rifle) defeated first half champion Icey Hot (supporter practical joke) in a focused roll-off. Members of the Wayne James team included Franciue Phillips, Nellie Howlin, Kyle Phillips, Larry Phillips and Don Mitchell Jr. Byron Burton, who broke his finger in high school on the only pass ever thrown to him, rolled the high game in the league along with Lar- ry Phillips at 279. Burton also had the highest male series at 734. Other high games were by Kevin Miller, 278; George "r'mker" Lay- ton, 268; and Don Mitchell Jr., 266. There were 18 teams in the league and my favorite name was Bubba's Bozos. PEOPLE IN SPORTS Dave Frederick TOY OF THE WEEK- Per- sonally I'm a rubber rafter kind of white water rafter. My wife and I went down the Lehigh River with a rafting party during the spring run-off of my early middle-aged years and I was nearly beaten up by angry, short-haired macho women who didn't appreciate it when I laughed as they were pitched from their four person raft as I screamed "Dogmeat!" A guide who looked like Ado Guthrie was wedged in a kayak and I so admired him that 10 years later I want to buy a cruiser for what I call "Wide Water Rafting" or "Plowing below the water line."

"rbey even shot the goalies," said a fleeing hostage. 7Que pasa con eso? LIFE'S A BEACH- The motto of the Wild Dog Walking Club is "We fill up on fluids and keep walking until we run out of gas." The release of data from the stag- gering study published in the Jour- nal of the American Medical Association finds that women who exercise after menopause outlive sedentary women by a long shot. "I'ne question we have to ask our- selves is "Is this really a good ideaT' said one researcher whose Boston Marathoning wife left behind an eight foot pile of laun- dry. Walking may .take the place of estrogen without the side effects of homicidal tendencies. HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE, GO MILTON MIDDLE!- Milton Middle brought their first class school to Cape's Little Big House Saturday night as a rocking crowd of mostly little beeners were enter- tained for three hours by the tal- ented and humorous but most importantly friendly Harlem Wiz- ards. Over 1,000 people paid for admission as money was raised for the Milton technology fund and the Wizards' trip back to Harlem. Principal Mike Mock and Vice- Principal Sarah Wilkinson were selling tickets and organizing hot dog sales with the smiling cooper- ation of their faculty and staff and even the Milton police depart- ment. It reminded me of the old days of Sussex County schooling before catchy phrases and so C, onttn1ed on pale M
