CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, September 1 - Monday, September 4, 2006 - 163 Oen Cook photo New head soccer coach All Akgunduz, right, watches as (l-r) Steve Martinez, Will Heuring and Danny Steele work through a dribbling drill. Cape soccer: new look, By Dave Frederick Cape Gazette staff The Cape soccer team lost some legendary good guys to gradua- tion including Brandon Wade, Tommy Grogan, Mike Shook and Corey Schab. Coach Randy Redard resigned his head coaching position and was replaced by former Turkish national team goalie Ali Akgnnduz who was an assistant coach with the boys and girls teams and is well-liked and respected by the players. The 2006 Cape soccer team will have a completely new look with young players getting an opportu- nity to show what they can do. "I think we'll be alright," said senior Travis Parker. 'he younger players will have to mature fast but they are athlet- ic." A tentative roster secured from the Cape athletic office includes; Jason Abel, Alex Albanese, Ken Barnes, Scott Brozey, Ivan Clavijo-crnz, John Deming, Ike Fairley, Derek Gay, Gustavo Gonzales, Chris Hardy, Will Heuring, James Johnson, Connor Jones, Tristin Karsnitz, Bryan Mack, Edwin Martinez, Andrew McMahon, Chris McMahon, Ian Miller, Jon Moore, Travis Parker, Dylan Pepper, Nick Priano, Gabriel Solano, Andrew Sprague, Daniel Steele, Ryan Steele, Aaron Tartal, Will Tennant, Scan Toner, Oscar Torres, Corey Williams, Blake Woodruff and John Young. The boys open the season host- ing Delmar on Tuesday, Sept. 12 and Seaford on Thursday, Sept. 14. Junior varsity action begins at 5:30 with varsity meets sched- uled for 7 p.m. Chduy Beckman photo Theresa Collins bumps during the Tatnall scrimmage. Cape spikers prep season By Chrissy Beckman Special to the Cape Gazette After losing just two athletes to graduation and gaining new tal- ents, the Cape girls volleyball team is set to spike any competi- tion that comes their way. Five returning juniors are stepping up their game to join the three sen- iors, Meghan Buhls, Lauren Bailey and Theresa Rollins on the varsity court. Cape has already played two scrimmages as it enters the final week of preseason. "By having the majority of our varsity players back this season, we have a lot of experienced girls," said head coach Carrie Serman. 'Tm impressed by their progress this early. In both scrim- mages we performed very well and were successful with our blocks." Rising talents Kerri Bailey and Lindsey Shook are quickly becoming two sophomores to watch for in the season ahead. According to Serman, both are projected to be fending for varsity time during the season. Newcomer and freshman Tricia Colon is another to keep an eye on. "If every little thing fits togeth- er properly, we'll fair very well in conference," added Serman. "We've made some changes. Meghan Buhls has been moved to the outside to join Junior Kelsey Buchanan. Juniors Erin Fox and Rayona Benson have been moved to the inside." Although the lady spikers tend to lack numbers in the height area, it is made up in skill. With Fox being the tallest, her new position as a setter fits well. "Practices are tough, but it's a good thing," Fox said. "Everyone puts it all out there and you can really see the results come game time."

"That's right," said Deloy. "It's all about the chem!" The Vikings will be young in the goal cage with sophomore Tori Bunting and Veronica D'Amico competing for playing time. Cape battled Pocomoke in si-_ multaneous scrimmages Tuesday, Aug. 29, under oppressive condi- tions that actually included a tor- nado watch. Tornadoes to watch for the Cape offense this season are Lillie Lin- go, Brienna Faust, Amanda Deloy, Christina MacDonald, Liz Car- penter, Amy Shockley, Allison Young and Jen Warren. All these girls are runners who can make things happen and keep the ball in the offensive end of the field. Rebecca Bernheimer, Kristina Lingo and Tricia Meade look solid along the defensive back line along with Kara Voss, Paige Townsend and Leigh Ann Rede- fer. Molly Desmond, Trisha Hymes, Leigh Mclllvain, Chelsea Reed and Hilary Merlo complete a tal- ented squad where playing time is still up for grabs for all players. NOTES - Mike Eisenhour and Brandi Woods are assisting coach Amanda Jacona. Fans remember Brandi Woods as Brandi Reed be- fore she married that Pat Woods, Y' guy. Annette Ihrke is Cape's new Athletic Trainer. Cape won the scrimmage 2-1 on a first-half goal by Kristina Lingo 17:03 and a second half score from Amanda Deloy at the 18:42 mark. The Vikings open the season on Tues- day, Sept. 12, hosting Wood- bridge, then travel to Sussex Cen- tral on Thursday, Sept. 14. Varsity games begin at 4 p.m. Dan Cook photo Cape varsity volleyball coach Carrie Serman is looking for leadership from her three seniors, back for their final oppor- tunity to grab the golden ring of the Heniopen Conference championship.
