60 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 7. June 13, 1996 People Continued from page 59 last Sunday aftcrnoon's guest bar- tending benefit for the Bill Deg- nan fund I was introduced to Mar- garct Farlow ("Honest. He really is a sports writer," said Seaford coach Rob Perciful. "Don't let him scare you. He's the real deal." Farlow is a 1993 Seaford graduate and plays Division I field hockey for Rutgers Univer- sity. Margaret scored goals this year against Syracuse and Virgin- ian Wesleyan. "Margaret was a softball player in the spring," track junkie Perciful said. "She may have been the best Seaford runner ever if she wanted," Perci- ful said. "The first time she ran the mile it was near six minutes." You can catch Margaret, actually you probably can't, cruising the dining room and deck waiting ta- bles. Mention the Cape Gazette for a window scat but no guaran- tee what side of the window you'll be on. PROFESSOR MORIARITY- Tim Moriarity is a former hockey writer for Newsday having cov- ered the New York Rangers and New York Islanders during their glory days. He is the father of Maureen Schah of Lewes, a for- mer Lewes Middle School teacher and wife of lawyer Bill Schab, who always goes for the inside pieces on a Nicola's party pizza. (That's where all the good stuff is.) "My dad picked the Florida Panthers right from the begin- ning," Maureen said. Moriarity is in the NHL hall of fame as a writer and is a member of the se- lection committee.. Buck Thompson is shown in playing form during his years at University of Delaware. Thompson Continued from page 59 pleting his eligibility at Delaware, he played two years of profession- al football with the Brooklyn Dodgers of the old American Con- ference. He set a record by catch- ing nine consecutive passes in the second half of a ballgame. "After the war there just weren't that many professional football teams," Thompson said. "There were some great players and everyone was tough." After a 25 year career as a guid- ance counselor at Upper Darby High School, Thompson and his wife, Joan, also a counselor whom he met at Delware and married in 1950, moved to Lewes. He be- came a career counselor at Cape Henlopen while Joan held a simil- iar position at Wooodbridge. "I was appointed to the Univer- sity of Delaware Board of Trustees in 1985 and thenthe greatest honor of my life was be- ing appointed Chairman of the Committee on Athletics in 1987. That committee was chaired for 40 years by the late Bob Carpen- ter, who in 1940 brought Delaware football into the big time. Bob was a great friend of mine and the best friend the Uni- versity of Delaware ever had." Thompson continues to labor as a sports administrator for the Uni- versity of Delaware currently spearheading an effort to develop a sports hall of fame on campus. "Sometimes I look around and I can't believe I'm working with all these accomplished people," Thompson said. 'Tm just a little guy from Manasquan, New Jer- sey." Fortunately, "The Buck" stopped by for a Delaware visit. Lewes Expos edge Millsboro Dodgers 7-5 The Lewes Expos (5-0) hosted the Millsboro Dodgers on Wednesday, June 5 and won 7-5.
