Father's Day Continued from page 86 of girls, competing from six zones around the country, were whittled down to 52, who were invited to the national championships in Bo- ca Raton, Fla. Under the scrutiny of seven na- tional coaches, the elite players were further paired down to 16. Jesse made the cut and was invit- ed to the National Training Center in Key Biscayne, Fla., where she played tennis five hours a day. "Most of the girls are really nice," Jesse said. "It was a chance for Jesse to meet kids who are most like her, who are usually her adversaries," Jesse's father said. Skateboard champ to speak at Selbyville library Bougie Criswell, three-time Ocean City skateboard champion from 1975-77, will give a lecture on "Demonstrating the Basics of Skateboarding - How to Do Trick Performance and Safety Tips," at the Selbyville Public Library, 6 p.m., Friday, June 26. The lecture is free and open to the public. Criswell's lifelong interest in skateboarding began as a hobby when he was a teenager.

Cape Region Athletes Of The Week DERRICK QUILLEN Cape's lacrosse midfield- ers had simple instructions this year when feeding at- tackman Derrick Quillen. uStick it [the ball] in his earl" was the strategy. "Der- rick was the missing piece of the offensive puzzle," said coach Mark D'Ambrogi. "Having a lefty on the right side with Derrick's speed and skills made us deadly. Derrick was named to the second team all-state squad and will attend Virginia Wesleyan University in the fall. Jesse gave up her No. 1 ranking in the Mid-Atlantic 12-and-under to move up to 14-and-under, where the competition is stronger and older. "She is ranked No. 5 in the region and has been invited to the nationals but we're holding her back," Dr. Robinson said. "I just want to let her be a little girl as long as possible. There are many other things she enjoys do- ing." The Robinsons also have a 9- year-old daughter, Julie, who sim- ply shrugs her shoulders when dad asks her about tennis. "If you want to be the best you've got to put in the time," Dave said. "A coach's job is to drive some- one. If you don't focus you're not going to make it. Like the rest of life, it's just a question of bal- ance." He went on to win that competi- tion in 1976 and 1977. From 1976-78, he opened his own business in College Park, Md., where he sold skateboards and equipment wholesale and re- tail. He also gave numerous lec- tures. He is currently a letter-car- rier for the Ocean City Post Of- rice. Criswell will use two skate- board videos, currently available in the Selbyville Public Library, in his lecture. Reservations for the lecture are required by calling the library at 436-8195.

MILTON MIKE - Mike Han- son of Milton was wearing his game face for picture' day at the Blue-Gold media frenzy and the boy looked a might scary, I don't mind tellin' ya. Hanson got away from Cape and played for Johnny Parker at Sussex Tech the last four years. Mike plays offensive guard and defensive end and is a strong 5'9", 225 lbs. who holds his posi- tion like a sawed-off oak tree shaking off the rear bumper of a Toyota truck. "I'm here to repre- sent the coaches who helped me and because the game is for a good cause to help people," Han- son said. BOY IN THE BUBBLE - The Baltimore "Sun" has officially de- clared my nephew, Mike Freder- ick, as a "player on the bubble" when NFL training camp official- ly opens next month. "Frederick is a fourth-year player who has yet to establish himself in the league," the "Sun" wrote. Well let's estab- lish this, you skinny journalists who think "Bull in the Ring" rep- resents your mothers in the bath- tub and think the Eye -opener drill is a drinking game. Little Mikey just signed a con- tract that will pay him more mon- ey than the combined annual in- comes of all his aunts and uncles, and that's why suddenly I'm de- pressed and happy at the same time. But most NFL contracts are not guaranteed, which means if you don't make the team then you don't get the money. " SNIPPETS - Pete "Power Pack" Lambros will celebrate his 40th birthday Saturday but wishes to keep his passage to the far side a family secret. Pete was last seen at The Firm, deadlifting 465 pounds while his workout partners sang "Happy Birthday" to the beat of Rodney Reynolds smacking himself in the head. I'm kidding fellas. Please don' t hurt me ...Last Tuesday morning, after writing a check for $700 to cover the cost of a porcelain crown that is now "incisor" my mouth (cost more than a wicker sofa), I drove to Peddlers Village to endorse my Blue Cross checks over to Tide- water Physical Therapistsfor al- lowing me to walk among older women with my shirt off while I rehabbed my ripped rotator cuff. "There is a real temptation to just keep the money," I bared my soul to receptionist Tonya Karl. "Oh, I know," she said. "We had one lady who kept the checks and bought herself a refrigerator." "Cool," I said. "I wonder if I can exchange dental insurance for a wicker sofa?" But enough about me. Go on now, gift
