CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 14 - July 20, 2000 - 99 Cape Region Fishing Report Come on- STEP OUTSIDE Alright you, come on, step out- side. STEP OUTSIDE is actually the title of an effort encouraging peo- ple to expose newcomers to the outdoors, whether it be fishing, hiking, hunting, archery, target shooting or any of a myriad of other activities. The idea is to encourage people to get involved in traditional out- door activities. It's also a way of putting something back into the sports that have brought so much joy to so many of us. You can't re- ally describe the thrill of seeing the first flight of ducks at dawn on a cold November morning or the thrill of seeing a trout rise to your dry fly. But you just might be able to share the experience. To find out more about the STEP OUTSIDE program, con- tact or write to the program at 11 Mile Hill Road, Newtown, CT. 06470. The e-mail address is info@step.out- One STEP OUTSIDE event coming up in Delaware will be OUTDOORS Michael Short Sept. 16 and 17 when the Delaware Wildlife Exposition is held at the state fairgrounds.

Spinners 7-1 in the championship game. Rehoboth's Abby Sadler went 3-for-3 with a triple and two RBI. Lewes' Gina D'Amico drove in three runs, including the game win- ner in the fifth inning to break a 1-1 tie. Amanda Hastings of Georgetown continued her unbeaten season (13-0), with her third victory of the weekend. To get to the championship game the Diamonds defeated the Hampton Roads (Va.) Vipers 11-6 and the Reston (Pa.) Redbirds 6- 1. Georgetown's Christine Brock had two hits, including a home run; and scored three runs to lead the assault against the vipers. Lindsey Moore of Georgetown had two hRs, drove in three runs and scored two runs. Millsboro's Kim Jones and Meghan Hanebutt, from Smyrna, each scored two runs as well. In the day's first game, against the Redbirds, Cape Henlopen var- sity hurler Colby Cooper allowed only one run. Laurel's Lenona Stancell had two RBI, two hits and scored 2 runs, while Brock had two hits and two runs. Jones and Sadler had two hits also, with Jones accumulating two RBI. On Saturday, the Diamonds opened with a I0-0 victory over the Lionville (Pa.) Lightning. Hastings, who pitched for Sussex Cen- tral Middle School, tossed a two-hit shutout, striking out nine while pitching the complete game. She also drove in two runs, scored two runs and hit a double. Jones and Stancell each had two hits and scored once, while Hanebutt scored two runs and drove in one with a single. In Saturday's second game, Cooper hurled a three-hit shutout with no walks to gain the 6-0 victory. Brock launched a three-run homer and Stancell had a triple to propel the Diamonds to another triumph. Hanebutt, Lindsey Moore and Beth Moore (yes, they're twins) each had singles while Hanebutt scored two runs. The Diamonds' only loss of the weekend came in a thriller against Virginia Beach's Orion Hunters. The Diamonds led 2-1 on- ly to have the Hunters tie the game in the top of the seventh. In the top of the eighth, the Hunters took a two-run lead, only to have the Diamonds come back to tie it. The top of the ninth saw the Hunters score again, then hold the Diamonds in the bottom of the inning to gain the victory. Lindsey Moore and Brock each had two hits for the Diamonds. The Diamonds' record now stands at 23-5-2 for the season. The team is looking forward to the PONY Nationals in Sterling, Va. Ju- ly 24-29. DNREC, said her division is en- couraging homeowners to consid- er using coconut logs to prevent coastal erosion of their properties. It may sound bizarre, but the logs are cheap, tough, durable, light- weight and provide good habitat when planted with marsh grasses and plants. It won't work in areas with large waves. But Herr said the logs, when staked and planted, are very durable and very effective at pro- tecting beachfront properties in many areas around the inland bays. She said it is the next step for- ward environmentally from rip- rap. She said that bulkheading has fallen out of favor because if pro- vides no habitat and can leach chemicals used to treat wood and that the placement of rock rip-rap is now considered better. Rip-rap provides some habitat and does not leach chemicals, but Herr said the coconut logs are an even bet- ter environmental solution.
