People Continued from page 80 Alice and she's a loader and doesn't like it when you call her a dozer which is how you earn high school credits. "I'm offering a course but I'm not sure whether it should be called Loader 101 or just LOADER," said her pappa, Pro- fessor Harry Lackhove who was beaned in the head by a Tonka grader when he was a child. Alice is a hoss of a loader and can basi- cally move anything she can scoop into her bucket from manu- factured houses to a herd of warthogs. Personally I've always been at- tracted to women who can operate heavy equipment but few are in- terested.."Take a loader off fan- ny!"

Congratulations to Linda Walls, Kathy Kleitz, Bernice Stur- gis and Christie Jennings for earn- ing degrees. And if I used maiden names, that's because otherwise I could never remember who people are.., My personal walking regimen of at least 100 miles per month has kept me relatively stress-free but now I'm also lifting weights in case I do have to hurt somebody. I want to be a walking, talking iron pumping poppy. I have learned something about self-confidence from walking over a thousand miles since September. I can handle rejection a lot better than I did in 1964 when Susie Thomas (Frederick) said "Before this thing even gets started I think we should stop seeing each other. Your morn the prom! Go on now, gift" JAIMME WITHERSPOON Junior Jaimme came to play last Saturday at the state track meet and won an individual state title in the shot put.

Jaimme's winning throw was 34'5" "I throw better in the big meets," Jaimme said. Jaimme's sister Jessica won a gold medal on the victori- ous 4 by 400 meter relay team. CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 23 - May 29, 1997 - 81 Cape lacrosse tentative as Riders roll into the: finals Johnny Coveleski smiled as he rolled his wrist revealing two watches. "That's my dad's watch," John said, pointing to one with engraving on the back. "I on- ly wear it for the important games. I wore it for Cape out of respect. We did not take them lightly." The Riders worked hard for a 3- 0 lead at the end of period one scoring on low bounce shots. The Vikings only managed two shots on goal in the period. CR's 16-5 victory ends glory season for Cape By Dave Frederick Caesar Rodney lacrosse coach John Coveleski was pitched the question. "Your father's name (Frank Coveleski) is revered in the Cape community. Everybody loved Frank Coveleski. But they're starting to hate John Cov- eleski because everybody's tired of you dogging Cape." Dave Frederick photo CR Coach John Coveleski congratulates goalie Ken Maroon following the Rider victory. "We gave our guys the offense to run but they started playing their own game," said coach Steve Aubrey. "I thought we were tenta- tive from the very beginning. I don't think our kids believed deep down inside that they could beat CR. I expected a closer game. I'm disappointed in our intensity." The Riders rode the advantage to 6-0 before Derrick Quillen solved the riddle of Bill Maroon who passed every major test but faced few pop quizzes. Caesar Rodney's attack whis- tled three more shots past goalie Mike Golder for a 9-1 halftime lead. Cape looked inspired to start the second half and scored on goals by Josh Lowe and Derrick Quillen cutting the gap to 9 to 3. The Rid- ers then ran off five straight to run away and hide from the upset. "Maybe it was not our year to beat them but I thought we would play better than we did," Aubrey said. Coach Frank Coveleski's watch will be at Saturday's state champi- onship game, and his son John will be wearing iL Friends of the Coveleski clan will be rooting for Caesar Rodney. SAL CORRAIO Sal hit the track late in the race last Sunday in the Mike Snell Friendship 5K looking like he escaped from the Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks. But there was nothing silly about the 30:45 time for the 66 year old race walker from the Potomac Valley Track Club. Sal is a former U.S. National Cham- pion and has held 21 nation- al and world age records. He has PRs of 1:45 for 20K, 49 minutes for 10K and 25 min- utes for 5K. He has walked an 8:45 mile.

MAGGIE WIDDOES Maggie has had a great se- nior year starring on the school's volleyball team and scoring a thousand points for a basketball team that won the conference and reached the semis of the state tournament. Maggie put the cherry on the sundae last Saturday winning the Division H high jump at the state track tourney for the second straight year...Al- ways the competitor, Maggie was disappointed not to jump 5'4", but her three sport career is one of the best in Cape sports history. KAI MAULL Kai Maull is a junior and one of the best long jump prospects in the country. During the last two weeks, Kai has won both the Hen- lopen Conference Meet, 23'5", and the Division Two state championship. Kai wanted 24 feet and a state record but he'll have to wait until next season. "His best event may be the 800 meters" which he's never run in com- petition," said Tim Barn- forth. Kai will be competing this summer in several na- tional meets where the weather and talent are hot.
