CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 7 - June 13, 1996 - 61 Four Cape athletes honored as "the best" Hill, who, along with Dale Dun- ning, also received the inaugural Bill Degnan Faith in Human Spir- it Award. A member of Viking winter and spring track teams since her fresh- man year, Hill capped her senior season with a state championship medal in the 300 meter hurdles. Yet it was her spirit of sportsman- ship, teamwork, and dedication, and egalitarianism in athletic competition that won her the cov- eted Kennedy award. "It was a shock to me," said By Susan Frederick Four athletes finished their high school careers in a blaze of glory in Cape&apos;s Little Theatre at Mon- day night's Senior Awards cere- mony as they collected "best of the best" athletic honors for 1996. Three-sport standouts Darnell Strand and Emily Weer received "Outstanding Athlete Awards" that evening. A Harley Jones collected the Mike Snell Friendship Award for 1996. The prestigious Kevin Kennedy Memorial Award went to Jamie Emily Weer receives her Outstanding Senior Female Ath- lete Award from assistant principal Sue Dutton as principal Ron Burrows looks on. Hill. "I had no clue I would ever be selected as the Kevin Kennedy winner." Both Hill and classmate Dun- ning were especially moved to re- ceive the Bill Degnan Award. "It was an emotional award because everybody loved Mr. Degnan. I've known him since fourth grade, so he goes back a long way in my life." "It meant so much to me," said Hill. "I knew who Mr. Degnan was since I was a little kid. My first contact with him in track was at field day in sixth grade. He came up to me and told me I should try to run track. I thought, 'Yeah,, right,' but I did eventually do just that. He used to kid me about that field day for years after that." Both she and Dunning are headed to the University of Delaware in the fall. Emily Weer's senior year in- cluded individual all-state honors and a team state championship in field hockey, an MVP award for winter track, and the "hustle" award as a starter on Cape's first girls' soccer team. She shouldn't have been surprised at her "Out- standing Female Athlete" award, but she was. "I didn't even know they did that," she said. "Or I guess I nev- er thought that they (the coaches) would pick me. Sportswise, this Degnan (c) is shown ning. has been a great senior year -- fun, yet very successful." Weer plans to continue her sports career at Appalachian College, where she received a scholarship for hockey. Senior transfer student Darnell Strand got everybody's attention early in the school year, averaging more than 100 yards a game at the beginning of the football season only to be sidelined with a leg in- jury in the Glasgow game which would plague him all season. He finished out the year as a member with Jamie Hill and Dale Dun. of Cape's "rebuilding" basketball team, a crew which made it to the state finals, and as a hurdler on George Pepper's Viking track team. "I got to know everybody in the school during football season be- cause the players introduced me to other people. Playing basketball also helped," he said. "All in all, it's been a happy senior year for me." Offensive lineman Harley Jones was "shocked" at his selection for Continued on page 62 A RHONE-POULENC RORER CO.
