94- CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 29 - September 4, Quick Hitters By Dave Frederick LINGO REDSHIRTED- Cape's Carrie Lingo, a freshman on the defending National Champion North Caroli- na field hock- ey team, will be redshirted this season LINGO along with re- cTuited classmates Susan Hayes and Katie McDonald.'A redshirt Xle lo Continued from page 93 is all about." John Aiello started fighting when he was 16 years old and spent nine years as a 118 pound bantam weight amateur fighter. There was no head gear worn in John Aiello's 287 fights in which he lost only five, two of which were controversial decisions. Sparred with Sugar Ray "I turned pro in 1941 and fought in the same stable of fighters as Sugar Ray Robinson," John Aiello said. "I sparred with him many times. When he came through the Philadelphia area, his entire en- tourage would visit me at my house. That was very unusual for race relations in the early forties." Tony Aiello never turned pro but posted a record of 85-15 as an amateur. "Sometimes we'd fight four times in one night for five straight nights," Tony said. "Tony invented perpetual mo- tion before Kid Gavetin," Johnny said. "He never stopped moving. He was a real whirlwind. But then he got married and that was the end of the fighting." John Aiello, who captained the Pan American Boxing Team in 1938, is a self-confident but mod- est athlete. He was very gracious to everyone who showed up [it his surprise birthday party. His son Frank, who coached St. Eliza- beth's girls basketball .teams to several state titles, presented his father with a framed collage of pictures of John as a fighter. "Boxing was a sport but now it's just big hitting," Primo said. "Johnny was a scientific fighter. He knew how to box." The brothers reminisced about organized street corner fights with gloves on the sidewalks of Gander Hill. "You guys just look so amaz- ingly fit and- still frisky," was the parting comment of the interview- er to the brothers Aiello. "Is it just good genetics"? "Why? You wanna try us?" was the group response. Not on a good day for me and a bad day for you fellas. Not a chance! 1997 may practice but does not play thereby maintaining that year for athletic eligibility. Division I ath- _tetes have five years in which to play-four. Lingo ran the mile in 5:49 in a fitness test which was second best on the team. Other Delaware players on the Tar Heels include Pembrey Keller, A.I. DuPont; Abbi Keller, Tower Hill; Erin Cox. St. Marks; and Jana Withrow, A.I. DuPont. There are nine players from eastern Penn- sylvania on the roster. REST AND RETIRE- Matt Centrowitz is a former four time national champion at the five thousand meter distance from 1978 through 1982 and once- held the American record in a time of 13:12. Matt was present at Satur- day's Seashore Strider 5K and was asked by race Director Tim Bamforth to give out the awards. Matt coaches at American Univer- sity and coaches middle distance runners for an amateur group called the Reebock Enclave. For- mer Cape star Marti Shue runs for the enclave. "We sent over 20 ath- letes to the Olympic tri- als," Cen- trowitz said. Matt attended Manhattan College his freshman year before transferring to the Univer- CENTROWITZ sity of Ore- gon. We shared a mutual friend in Manhattan track coach Fred Dwyer. "I remember in the begin- ning of the road running boom a slightly overweight woman from the neighborhood with no back- ground m running came to Coach Dwyer and asked what type of training program would be right for her. Fred told the woman, 'Take two weeks off and then re- tire.'" World class Matt competed Dave Frederick photo Cape's Lindsey King works her way between two Pocomoke players to go after the bali. at 160 pounds and now carries 220 pounds on his 6'2" frame. "I run about 30 minutes a day," Matt said. "I just like to help other peo- ple." Centrowitz made the U.S. Olympic team in 1976 at 1,500 meters and in1980, the year of the boycott, in 5,000 meters. CAPE BEATS POCOMOKE- First half goals by Sarah Marshall and Kelly Palekar got the Cape field hockey team off and running against a highly-touted Pocomoke squad as the Vikings went on to win the scrimmage played under game conditions 4-1. Second half goals were scored by Emily Walls and Kelly Palekar. Erica Waples went the distance in the goal cage. Both the varsity and JV teams have 21 field players and two goalies. Zena Hense is a goalie "floater" according to Coach Mike Eisenhour who may play in both games. Vanessa Morris, a transfer from Caesar Rodney, is the starting JV goalie when Hense is playing varsity. Protecting goalie Erica Waples were Billie Joe Brittingham, Kim Smith and Amy Reardon. Taylor Marshall and Jackie Warrington are joined by Alison Gaffney and Sam Catts in the middle of the field. Sarah Marshall, Kelly Palekar and Emi- ly Walls provide the scoring punch. "We have great potential on offense and we're very steady on defense," coach Mike Eisen- hour said. "We are a little out of shape but I don't want these girls to peak too early. I want us to be building during the middle phase heading into the end of the sea- son."
