1 TUESDAY, AUGUST 13 - THURSDAY, AUGUST 15, 2013 SPORTS & OUTDOORS Cape Gazette DAN COOK PHOTOS MORE THAN 50 FUTURE BASKETBALL STARS attend the Coastal Basketball Academy at Cape Henlopen High School gymnasium. Coastal Basketball Academy teaches skills and offers fun at Cape gym The Coastal Basketball Acad- emy hit the hardwood of the Cape Henlopen High School gymnasium Aug. 5-9. More than 50 campers attended with three coaches and 10 counselors. Campers ranged from kinder- garten through eighth grade. The campers and staff did arm-ups together each morn- ing and then split into two groups for individual ball handling, drib- bring skills, fundamental station work, transition drills and camp competitions. The two age groups were K-4 and 5-8. The K-4 group ended the day at noon while the 5-8 group stayed for lunch and then worked on more complicated transition drills and competed in 3-on-3 game play and 5-on-5 matchups. "The campers worked real- ly hard and were an excellent group," said Cape coach Steve Re. "They improved each day and had a lot of fun at the same time." If anyone missed out and is looking for an opportunity to get involved, the Cape Crusaders' basketball workouts will start up again this fall, shortly after the school year begins. Look for in- formation in upcoming editions of the Cape Gazette. Travers Johnson, 6, works on a ball-Control drill. Timothy Leach, 5, dribbles up court during the Coastal Basketball Camp.

Big League Continued from page 24 Delaware got an early three- run homer off the bat of Cailey Isaacs for a 3-1 lead after one inning. Isaacs is on her way to Virginia Tech to play softball. Puerto Rico came back with a four-run third inning highlighted by a two-run homer off the bat of Janiliz Rivera. A surprise to no one who has en her play was Alexis Burger of Cape, who went 3 for 4 in the championship game including two runs scored. Early in the game Alexis was at the plate with two outs and the bases loaded. She worked a full count and was called out on a "just a bit outside" pitch that had the ESPN announcers exclaim- ing, "-That wasn't even close!" Tiara Duffy had a pair of hits, drove in a run and made a great sliding catch in the first inning, running into foul territory from her left field position. The Delaware team had play- ers from Sussex Central, Cape, Sussex Tech, Woodbridge, Del Tech, Indian River and Laurel. Many of the girls have played travel ball together since they were 10 years old. Last June, Downstate won the Carpenter Cup and last week, the USSSA 18U national championship be- fore ending the year with a Big League World Series champion- ship.
