78 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 1 Maull Continued from page 77 led all jumpers after three jumps with a leap of 24-4. Maull was in second with a 23-6. In the finals, athletes jump in reverse order, giving Toledo the "hammer" and luxury of seeing the field in front of him. "Once we got to the finals I wanted to get one out there and make the field come to me," Maull said. "I just concentrated on mechanics. Stay relaxed, be a tall runner, spring off the board, hang at the end and let the ground come to me." Kai "busted" a metric 7.54 on his fourth jump and waited for the digitized clock to convert to Eng- lish measurement. It came in at 24-9. "! started clapping because it was a personal record and now they had to catch me. Once you get a good jump it's reassuring but you never know if somebody else can pop a good one. You just can't lay back." Kai watched intently as Toledo raced down the runway for his last attempt. Another athlete was in control of the long jump; or was he? Guillermo had the hammer but Mauil had nailed down a 24-9. The jump would hold up. Maull was Penn Relays champion. "I get excited inside but try to show as much class as possible in victory," Maull said. "Not many people get a chance to accomplish what I did and I feel very good about it." - May 7, 1998 Dave Frederick photo Guillermo Toledo of Puerto Rico kept the pressure on Maull in the long-jump pit at the Penn Relays. Clemson University head track coach Bob Pollock (winner of four consecutive ACC titles) and assistants Aaron James and Ralph White sat in the stands opposite the take-off board last Saturday with broad smiles on their faces. They had the foresight to sign Maull back in December. Clem- son track is getting a great talent. The university is getting a great kid! Everybody wins. a Athletes Of The Week JOHN FLOYD John and first doubles partner Dane Baich won two matches last week to raise their season's record to 6-1. The boys have beaten Indian River twice (they deserve it), Lake Forest, Caesar Rodney, Milford and Smyrna. "Our goal is to win the conference meet," Floyd said. The se- niors have also qualified for this year's state tournament. Floyd, also an avid outdoors- man and hunter, counts Ralph Short among his role models. JACKIE WARRINGTON Jackie has made numer- ous game-saving plays in critical situations according to her coach, Bill Cordrey. In last Tuesday's crucial victo- ry over Lake Forest, "Boo" snagged a hard grounder up the middle with runners on second and third and gunned the ball to first for the final out. Warrington bats out of the two hole where she is called upon to bunt and hit to the right side to advance the runner. Lacrosse Continued from page 77 football." Wyatt is a quick, intelligent ath- lete who never backs down and can change direction faster than a water bug in front of a sponge mop. In soccer he often marked up the opponent's most potent scorer. In lacrosse, he is the vacuum cleaner of ground balls and the triggerman of Cape's deadly at- tack. Quiilen has harnessed his unbri- dled emotional competitiveness and natural athleticism, elevating both his soccer and lacrosse games to the level of his friends. I started lacrosse in 10th grade and was forced to get good in a hurry," Derrick said. "I feel I have arrived quickly." Bill "Badboy" Lingo was a front door-opportunist in soccer and a backdoor cutter in lacrosse. Bill has the "knack" of scoring game winning goals and making back- breaking plays. The bigger the game the more dangerous Lingo becomes. Steele, who actually played with a steel rod in his shin after break- ing his leg, has emerged as the personification of the bigger, stronger, faster athlete. Steele is hard and physical and plays with the intelligence of a coach's son. His crank shot in lacrosse has frozen goalies like Dairy Queen NICK SHAFFER Nick has the wheels in the outfield and on the base paths and is easily the fastest player on the team, according to his coach Barry Lynch. "Nick is just stroking the ball," Lynch said after Shaffer collected three hits along with a pair of walks and three stolen bases in Cape's extra-inning, 10-7 loss to Lake Forest. Shaffer was a defensive back and punter for the Cape football team. custard. "We may have come from soc- cer but we played a physical style," Steele said. "Josh and I went to the lacrosse finals as freshmen and our goal has always been to get back there and win it." The last two seasons under coach Steve Aubrey, Cape has posted a record of 28-3, losing in last year's semifinals to eventual state champion Caesar Rodney. This year Cape is undefeated at 13-0 with three games remaining. "This is it," said Lingo. "Every- body expects us to get to the finals. We play one game at a time but we're not afraid of the pressure." Wyatt shared Lingo's vision quest. "We play better under pressure. That's our job. To win the state championship." "Movinginto the playoffs it's do or die," said Quillen. "This team will never let down. There's just too much on the line." The playoffs begin May 14 and Cape is hoping for the No. 1 seed. "We face the best competition in the state in practice every day," said Steele. "Having Jimmy Derrick and Matt Hall beat on you every day cannot help but make you a better player." For a foursome that has left so many victories behind them the fo- cus is crystal clear. "We realize what's in front of us," said Steele. "We've been on this mission since freshman year." COREY MAHONEY The long-pole son with the short-stick daddy, Corey has meshed perfectly with Cape's all-state defenders Matt Hall and Jimmy Der- rick. "They have helped me and pushed me to be a better player," Mahoney said. "I just love playing defense." Cape seniors sang Ma- honey's praises. "He has just been awesome since the Sal- lies' game," said Scott Steele. Corey's dad, coach Tim Ma- honey, is a former Towson University attackman. People Continued from page 77 school where students sometimes hit but you can't hit them back. I have seen a thousand fights since I first walked into homeroom in 1960. Things are no worse now than they ever were but the news- paper coverage is a lot better. SNIPPETS - My friend Matt Wells of Cape was right. "Watch out for the Yankees this year. They are going to be awesome." As of this writing the Yankees and Red Sox are tied for first in the American League East, with Baltimore in third... "The Flyers are terrible," said Brett Jacltson, the Philly mogul of Planet Ice now with a location on Rehoboth Avenue. "They're not going any- where this year." Jackson made that prognostication a month ago...Big brother Tom, who wrote a column for the Gazette last sum- mer about his five-week and 50- pound weight loss at the Duke University Diet Clinic, reported to me last week. "I stay anywhere between 105 and I10 pounds." I was shocked! "There's no way you can weigh that little. Your skeleton alone is over 200 pounds." "No, that's my weight- loss maintenance program," he said...My personal walking pro- gram is still successful but chang- ing form. I walked 100 miles for the month of April for my 20th consecutive month of at least 100 miles. But I took 10 days off so I had to average five a day on the days I walked. When it gets to 27 days off and four consecutive days of 25-mile walks I'm going to quit and ride the life cycle to nowhere. Dr. Budi,. my cardiolo- gist, (but who's my PT - Prostate Tickler?) recommends a target heart rate of 142 beats per minute for cardiac conditioning. That ac- tually requires running and heavy breathing.. "Ring! Ring!" Hus- band picks up phone. "Hello." Heavy breathing followed by more heavy breathing. "Honey, it's for you." "Hello." Heavy breathing followed by more heavy breathing. Wife: "Go on now, git!"
