52 ". CAPE G,-Friday, May 5 - May II, 1995 " Sports & Outdoors Cape laxmen roll over St. Mark's for eighth straight win Gear for Saturday showdown at CR against 9-2 Riders By Dave Frederick The eyes of innocence stared from beneath the helmet of a freshman Cape lacrosse player. He was in'pressed watching 45 St. Mark's Spartans (8-3) warm up and whoop it up before Wednes- day's showdown with the Cape laxman. "They definitely warm up better than any team we've played this year," the rookie said. "I guess they're going to be pretty good." Cape's pretty good, too, and when Paul Camenisch took it to the hole in the opening minutes for a 1-0 lead, the horses were out of the Viking barn as Cape blitzed to a 7-0 half-time advantage en route to a surprisingly easy 11-2 victory. : The win was the eighth in a row for Cape (8-1) after dropping their opener to Easton. The Vikings travel to Caesar RodneY on Satur- day morning, May 6, for a show- down with John Coveleski's 9-2 Riders. "Today was one of the most sat- isfying victories for me since I've been at Cape," said coach Jeff Molar after the game. "We maintained our composure when they started taking runs at the body and we worked the ball in our set offense." Chris George led the scoring parade for the Vikings scoring three goals, while Spencer Steele and Paul Camenisch each added a pair. Freshman Josh Wyatt, Brian Kugelmann, along with middies Tom and Jack Frederick, each tal- lied single goals. Goalie Jeff Trench was sharp and focused in the net, recording the win and, as usual, was protect- ed by the defensive trio of Matt Baker, Burli Hopkins and Eduardo Saez. "It's the first game all season that we've had everybody healthy," Coach Mohr said. "The fresh legs on the field make a dif- ference." Jack Lingo returned to full strength after missing several games with a deep thigh bruise.

MANDOWN - Last Friday afternoon the Vikings shot down the Auks of Archmere 11-2. Spencer Steele, Tom Frederick and Chris George each scored three goals. The YMCA youth program has attracted a larg e crowd and is being coached by Shawn Williams (also a high school assistant), Tripp Wyatt and Ron Nogowski. Tom and Jack Frederick have  signed with University of Mary- land, Baltimore County, where they will play lacrosse for the Division I Retrievers and coach Don Zimmerman. Zimmerman led Johns Hopkins to three nation- al rifles while he was head coach for the Bluejays. UMBC opens with Navy in late February. The final four and champi- onship game in Division I college lacrosse will be held at UMCP on Memorial Day weekend. Salis- bury State University is the heavy favorite to repeat as Division IH national champions. The subtle differences between wart hogs, water buffaloes MILITARY MENTALITY- I an, said he's not surprised by something to do with Ramar of his wife Jeanne replied, "Why, continue to write about my nephew Mike Frederick's quest (drafted in the third round by the Cleveland Browns) to become an NFL player because it's the only inside track I have to the big time, outside of publishing the hourly rate of fast food workers. The defensive coach of the Browns recently pulled Mike aside at a three-day mini camp and initiated the following commentary: "Frederick boy, I've watched and analyzed all 48 films of games you started at Virginia." Mike got a big smile on his face. "That's nice, coach. What did you think"? "You haven't got a clue, boy! Haven't got a freakin' clue!" Head Coach Bill Belecbek passed Mike during the pre-practice stretching routine. A knock on Mike is that he's too stiff and not flexible enough just like his uncle. "Is that your excuse for flexibility Frederick?" Belechek asked. "That's the saddest thing I've ever seen." I asked Mike how he enjoyed his first three days of NFL IN SPORTS Dave Frederick two-a-day, almost contact, wear- ing only a helmet, rookie and free agent practice. "It was fun," Mike said. "I came home with lots of good stories. Some of the free agent guys were gone the first day. Picked up a signing bonus in the locker room and were sent home before the afternoon session." Cape football coach George Glenn, a legendary high school coach and stateside military veter- Mike's stories. 'q'hat's basically the way it works," Glenn said. "Break them down and build them up." You illiterates got all that? SAVE IT FOR THE PROM - My coaches back in high school were always making snide refer- ences to the senior prom as if get- ting dressed up in a tux was not a manly thing to do. These are the same coaches who later discov- ered brightly colored polyester bike three quarter length coaching shorts which look particularly attractive helfless under a bulging beer belly. "Frederick, don't waltz through the line like you're looking for a prom date. Hit somebody!" There were also a lot of watering hole wart hog or water buffalo references to our choices of girl friends. The distinction between Water buffalo and wart hog is subtle, but I think the wart hog is. a cousin of the earth pig while water buffalo can he spotted off Rehoboth Avenue floating in big black inner tubes. It all had The Jungle being televised in black and white prime time. In basketball, if you tried anything fancy like a behind the back pass or double clutch finger roll (in the sixties white people could jump). I don't know what happened, the coaches usually screamed, "Save it for the senior prom Frederick. We don't need that stuff around here." Then I fooled them all and took my wife to the prom. How many people can say that? FREDMAN BECOMES IDEAMAN - My idea of making three transcontinental drives in either a Toyota Land Cruiser or British Range Rover has been gathering momentum. Kevin Smith of Lewes, an aid to Senator Joseph Biden, gave me the official word last Friday night in front of King's Ice Cream Store in Lewes, that his office could help me in the procurement of passports and visas for a north-south trip through the African Continent. "I'd like to come along," Kevin said, to which Kevin? What could you do?" Cape students Jen Smith, Ingrid Hopkins, David Wilcutts, Cecelia Jones and Nicole Martin have assisted me by calling various African embassies. Here's a typi- cal conversation. "Can you drive through your country from north to south? .... Why certainly." "Do you have anything like a road atlas or map you can send us? .... Why certainly not." Nicole Martin, per my instructions, asked an embassy aide for Botswana if they had gas stations and other amenities along the highway. "We have every- thing you have in America," a women said somewhat annoyed. There are electric eels swimming in the Congo River (C'mon every- body do the Congo) and Ituri pyg- mies and, of course, the Eboli virus, which was the culprit in the movie Outbreak. Poetically, the journey is to end in Cape Town where I left my heart. JORDAN RULES - During an Continued on page 53
