94 -CAPE AZETTE, ]riday, July 14, July 20, 2000- Lacrosse Continued from page 93 John Lingo. Summer lacrosse has always at- tracted a crowd of young friends of the players along with several parents and retriever dogs of vari- ous ages. Speaking of retrievers, Cape grads Matt Hall, Scott Steele and Malik Lopez showed their Di- vision I lacrosse skills as they ran the field wearing their UMBC Re- triever aerodynamic helmets. Other Cape players "out there" were Spencer Steele, Logan Short, Mike Fintel, David Rodriguez, Jimmy Der- rick, Billy Brennan, Josh Wyatt, Billy Lingo, Jack Lingo, Chris Keller, Jeff Trench, Chris George and a host of others. GEORGE In many ways, summer league is a lacrosse re- union for fomler Cape players and a chance to show spectators just how good the college crowd has become. Division I players from around the country have found their way to the Rehoboth league over the years. It would be a fair statement to make that you name the team and a player has been there from that school. "For the most part, everybody enjoys the league and respects each other's abilities," Mohr said. A few years ago, a team made up mostly of the Salisbury nation- al championship team featuring Division III Middie of the Year Jake Bergey, lost to Team Adriati- co, featuring Eddie Gaines, An- thony Didomenicus, Kevin "Kandy" Kane, Eddie Braswell and other assassins of a bygone era, when the going got a bit too rough for the college stars who left the field before the game was over. "That was old Cape lacrosse," bragged Eddie Gaines, who never met a cross check he didn't like. New lacrosse is faster and less physical, although it is still wise to "keep your head on a swivel" when running through the mid- field. "This league has been great for the local kids, and now that the reputation is established it attracts great college players every year," Mohr said. Check out the big boys every Monday night beginning at 6 p.m. ATLANTIC LACROSSE CAMP- Coach Mark D'Ambro- gi's Atlantic Lacrosse Camp at the Cape Henlopen State Park ran from June 25 through June 29. There were 135 campers from New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania who attended the camp. Coaches in attendance were Jamie McNealy from Severn School and Graham Niemi from Washington College. College players serving as camp coun- selors included Bobby Benson, Cape Rel ,don Athletes Of The Week I LAURI MOORE Fourteen-year-old Lauri swam for the Cape Heulopen Vikings last winter and she also plays volleyball and softball. Swimming up in the 15-18 division for the Lewes Yacht Club, Lauri has already qualified for the Del- marva Swim Association Championships in the back- stroke, freestyle and individ- ual medley events. Moore is undefeated this young sea- son in the backstroke. "Swimming is my favorite sport," she said. The Lewes Yacht Club is currently 2-1. DAN HAUBER The Duke University lacrosse defenseman, a sophomore starter, stood out like a gladiator on a middle school playground last Mon- day night at the Rehoboth Beach Summer Lacrosse League. And that's before one realized that the 6-foot- 4-inch, 220-pounder from Gaithersburg, Md. wasn't wearing shoulder pads. "We were 12-4 last season and missed going to the final four after losing by one to Virginia," Hauber said. Former Viking player David Steele (center) splits two de- fenders as he makes his way toward the goal during Monday night action. Johns Hopkins; Matt Primm, Har- vard; Zach Burke, UMBC; and Scott Steele and Matt Hall, UM- BC.

Special awards giv- en out were Best Attackman, Jesse Billings; Best Midfielder, Andrew Kroll; Best Defender, Mason Dyer; Most Improved, Josh Dougherty; arid Most Out- standing Camper, Scott LANCE FARGO When this 34-year-old road racer begins sprinting to- ward the finish chute to set a PR, it is very prudent to step aside. The former Tat- nail heavyweight wrestler and offensive lineman stands 6-foot-5-inches and weighs 235 pounds. A Hamp- ton Sydney graduate, Fargo owns Coastal Printing in Ocean View. He works out at Gold's Gym three mornings a week. Lance owns a PR of 18:54 for 5K. He trains on the road and does speed work on the track. ANDREAS ROESTENBERG This four-time Division I All-American swimmer looked like something from a Terminator movie as he emerged from the water af- ter winning the open water 400-meter swim at the Mid- Atlantic Lifeguard Champi- onships. Roestenberg led the Texas Longhorns to the NCAA title in 1996. Current- ly, the human anatomy de- gree holder is training for next month's Olympic Trials where he will go after a team berth in the 100-meter and 200-meter freestyle events. People Continued from page 93 A.I. du Pont Kelly has coached both the boys and girls at Indian River Lenny Lucas is a former head coach at Laurel High School. My nephew, Mike Frederick, is still unsigned and living in Nashville. The possible signing by the Titans of Reggie White has kept Mike in limbo, which ain't no place to be for a Catholic boy. Cape graduate Chris George, who started as a freshman over Spencer Steele and a host of other great lacrosse players, will gradu- ate from the New York Maritime Academy in January. Chris said that after graduation he will either sail with the Merchant Marines or study naval architectural engi- neering. Hey, exactly my options. American Lance Armstrong re- claimed the leader's yellow jersey with a devastating performance in the Pyrenees Mountains on Mon- day and is 4:14 ahead of German Jan Ullrich. Armstrong, a cancer survivor, is a true American hero and role model. What an awe- some endurance athlete! "Wait till we get to the AIps and the Pyre- nees where I can really kick some butt!" Congratulations to the Re- hoboth lifeguards for their awe- some morning Junior Lifeguard program. They are teaching kids real lifesaving skills and showing them that fitness can be a lifestyle. Tip your burger, man! Just thought I would throw that in! And this word to Kelvin Miller, who mates aboard the Keena Lady 1 V: I've heard about fishing at the Hot Dog, but Kelvin, yo da man. Kelvin is a former student of mine and when I mention this to him he just politely smiles for both of us. But there's a lady walking around today because of his resourceful and heroic efforts. Just keep her out of the meat aisle at Lloyds! SOS had a very successful CD release party last Monday night. Friend Jay Wingate painted his entire body green and went to the party as the title track "Dark Green Guy!" Craig Hudson is hosting a CD release party for vinyl shockley along Route 1 Fri- day night to celebrate the release of "Wild Hair." Not to be outdone by the younger Wingate, Alton Scott will put Butch Wax in his hair and go as Don King. Speak- ing of the Grease Band, "Go on now, git some new material!" "My Girl" is wearing me out, but not in a bad way! Soccer camp kicks off July 24 at Shields The Star Soccer Academy will provide youth soccer camps for kids ages 4 through 14 at Richard A.
