92 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 29 - September4, 1997 SPORTS& OUTDOORS Cape knocks back Lake with stable of runners Pavlik performs well in first test under fire By Dave Frederick LEWES- In fairness to the Lake Forest Spartans, no member of the press talked to the coaches about what they were trying to do, where they feel they are after a week of practice, and how many players may have been missing from the lineup. But no organization has dealt with more adversity than Cape over the last month from the resig- nation of Coach George Glenn to the decision of Kai Maull to save his body for long jumping. "One thing I can say for certain about this team is that it will con- tinue to get better," said coach Brian Donahue. "That's not a .:.::...,i:: "*: : ........ clich6, we ai{ii: just have a lot ii : .:i:i::. iii{ of players : who have yet to come into their own but they are :i: ....... :: improving every day." Theron DONAHUE Pavlik can walk to the line with confidence, knowing he is putting his hand under an All- American AAU wrestler in the person of Matt Graviet at center. "Matt had a good scrimmage on both sides of the ball," Donahue said. "And senior guard Wrix MacIlvaine also did a good job getting after people." Dave Frederick photo Elijah Worthy scores a touchdown for Cape in Saturday's scrimmage against Cape. Cape Coach Brian Donahue was pleased. Depth at running back may be the strength of Cape's 1997 offense. Veterans Carl Floyd and Deshon James are proven per- formers under fire and when M&M boys Worthy and Wilson get cranked up they can put both inside and outside pressure on a defense. Quarterback Theron Pavlik was not flashy and never will be, but the "Pavman" was cool under pressure, throwing for a two point conversion and hitting Elijah Wor- thy in the flat for a pass-and-run long touchdown. Defensively, besides down line- men Graviet, Larry Oliver and Timmy Cannon, defensive ends Kenny Stevenson and Casey Shee- hen also played well. Starting linebacker Mark Moore watched the contest with an ankle sprain but his running mate Hay- wood Burton was impressive mak- ing tackles all over the field. This Saturday Cape will host an offensive- -minded Middletown squad. This scrimmage will feature more situations and more empha- sis on special teams.

(Muscle head humor!) Jen Ellingsworth, the Entertainment guru of the Cape Gazette, hangs in the air with the greatest of ease at the Nassau Valley circus arts trapeze venue last week.

A FEW GOOD DIRTBAGS- PEOPLE IN SPORTS A group of young high school- aged boys were jogging as a group around the Cape Henlopen State Park Parade Grounds last Tuesday night as darkness was slowly pulling the shade on the twilight. I was walking on the bike trail heading to the big dune overlook looking like the Stalker of the Salt Flats. The young men were chant- ing the dreaded 99 bottles of beer woods side of the perimeter the lyrics became downright common and obscene. I thought that per- haps they were being led by the State Physical Education Teacher of The Year who has given new meaning to the in-house term "Roll Out The Balls." I laughed at what t was heating because I hate political correctness and wanted to present the captain of the creative songbursts with the tag from my tee shirt which reads XXX. Upon investigation I found out what school team jogged to the slime rhymes in uptempo time, but I'll never tell. And no, it was not Cape. PRESS BASHING- Some good-natured you-can't-really- trust-the-press kibitzing went down during the Cape districtwide in-service program and I wouldn't mention it here if my name "Fred- man" hadn't been said in front of four hundred people at the end of a journalist joke. Secretary of Edu- mite and received a standing ova- tion after her speech, did say in response to a Wednesday News Journal article, which she admitted she had not read, "I'm sure what I said was distorted a little bit because that always happens with the press." It reminds me of- Charles Barkley who claimed he was misquoted in his" autobiogra- phy. A BUNCH OF LOONY TOONS- No, forget the in=ser- vice story. Let's talk about the } Cape Henlopen Band. Director Barry Eli has been drilling 150 musicians, flag twirlers and other band-front athletes (Yo, quit fron- tin') for the upcoming football and marching band season. The kids have been working four hours a night since August 13," Eli said. "This year we plan to play all car- toon themes during the half-time show. During the game the band will be rocking with such standbys as "Secret Agent Man," "Tequila" Some Loving" and also coordinate percussion with the cheerleaders routines. "I gotta percussion once after a tackle and it hurt so good." Drum majors for this year's marching band (don't need them in the jazz band) are Mike Park, Dawn Cintavy and Rochelle Knapp. SHELTIE FROM THE STORM- When you walk as much as I have, you see and over- hear all kinds of weird stuff. The other day on the Rehoboth Board- walk I noticed a woman with a makeshift sling around her neck and inside the pouch was a Sheltie puppy better known as a miniature miniature collie. I know the ordi- nance prohibits dogs on the board- walk until after Labor Day (then the big dogs towing older women phenomenon goes into effect) but this dog wasn't actually on the boardwalk. I thought it would make a great case for CCP court Continued on page 93
