People Continued from page 64 down-and-in last Tuesday after- noon as the visiting girls from Wicomico High School played like the M. R. Ducks all- stars fighting off an incred- ible 13 straight ser- vice winners. Cape jumps off to a 2-0 WIDDOES start on the season after a Satur- day victory over hapless Wilm- ington. "I want to play a good team," said Katie DelCampo. Cape will be at Dover Tuesday, Sept. 17 and then travel to always tough Wilmington Christian on Thursday, Sept. 19. "I feel good about this year's team," said coach Nick DelCampo. "We're about to find out how improved we really are." SNIPPETS- The Salisbury State Seagulls opened their foot- ball season with a victory over Delaware Valley College as Cape's George White, a freshman, saw action as a defensive back. . . Dogged Cape Gazette re- porter Kerry Kester is a WHITE native of Wisconsin and an avid cheese head, or is that Packer head, as we say in, Sussex County. Kerry has been tough on Eagle fans after last Monday's fonduing of the birds and reportedly asked Eagle loyalist Tommy Engel why the Eagles sent their cheerleaders to Green Bay instead of the football team. And just like Chuck Bed- narik's pinning of Jim Taylor in the 1960 championship game, En- gel threatened to sit on Kester un- til her biological clock runs out... Cape Region Athletes Of The Week Sue Lore, retired from hockey coaching after twenty years on Rehoboth and Lewes sidelines, comes by her community spirit naturally. "My morn and dad al- ways donated time to community service; they were always knock- ing on doors," Lore said. Sue's father, Fran, co-founded the state's Lower Gridiron Club in the late '70's in order to give recognition to achievements of downstate athletes. The Fran Lore Award, present- ed each year to an athlete who has overcome a handicap in order to participate in sports, carries his name. Cape graduate Thad Nowakowski received the award in 1988. CAP GAZE'IWE, "day, September 13 - September 19,1996 rll i Sue Lore retires, quietly, from hockey After 20 years of leading tremendously successful Cape District teams, coach decides it's time to move on By Susan Frederick There were no testimonial dinners or Hall of Fame honors. No media coverage of final goodbyes. No hype. No fuss. But when Cape Henlopen social studies teacher Sue Lore resigned from her position as Lewes Middle School hockey coach earli- er this year, she closed out twenty years on what precious few coaches at any level can say they have done: lead overwhelmingly successful teams, lead them on her own terms, and have a heck of a good time doing it. Her two decades of service stand as the longest in the district's history. "I told myself it was time," said Lore of her decision to leave the coaching ranks. "I got out when I felt good about it, and Lewes is definitely in good hands with Patti Jo (Mock)." Lore has coached three major sports hockey, basketball, and softball  at the middle school level in the Cape district since the mid '70s, but decided early in her career that hockey was for her. "My principal, Ed Hurley, came to me in 1976  that was the year the district split in- to three junior high schools. Ruth (Skoglund) had been moved to the Lewes school. Ed said, 'Sue, you play golf; you should be able to coach hockey.' That's how I started. I give credit to Georgia Billger and Terri Walsh Burton for helping me tremendously during that first year. Their- support was in- valuable to me." As a schoolgirl in Dover, Lore had played bas- ketball and some softball, but no hockey. Hock- ey's attraction stemmed from other reasons. "Few people re- ally understood the rules of hock- ey," she said sim- ply. "I had no parents second- SUE LORE guessing my coaching decisions because most of them had no idea of the game. I'd ydl, 'Get your sticks down!' to the girls during the game, and moments later I'd hear the parents in back of me echoing the- same phrase.all along the sidelines. They didn't know anything else to say!" For the next nineteen years, Lore com- piled an impressive record in junior high and middle school play, including a '78 unde- feated season at Rehoboth with a group of girls who went on to play for Carolyn Ivins on Cape's state championship team a year later, a 1990 undefeated Rehoboth squad, and three undefeated seasons in the early 90's in Lewes with girls who now form the nucleus of Cape's present powerhouse. If you're looking for a twenty-year win and loss record however, don't look in Lore's scrapbook. You'll find pictures of smiling teenagers and newspaper articles and spirit ribbons and cards and letters liter- ally bulging and spilling out of its ragged pages. But you will find no account of just how successful she was -- that is, unless you count success not in wins and losses but in photos and ribbons and notes from former players and coaches. "When Carolyn Ivins won the state cham- pionship in 1979, she included me and (Lewes coach) Ruth Skoglund and (Milton coach) Barbara Heller in the team banquet. I think that Ruth never forgot that; she includ- ed Marge Erthal and me in last year's state championship banquet. That was very, very special to me." "I'm not bred for competition," said Lore of her decision t o stay at the middle school level over the years instead of pushing for a high school coaching spot when it opened. "I like the kids and I like doing developmen- tal work. I like sports for fun." And how is the former coach spending her first hockey "vacation" in twenty years? Having fun, her way. You'll find her at the scoring table of Cape home games. "I was thrilled when Ruth asked me to do it," she said. "This way I don't have to let hockey go completely. I can just keep my pinky in." J.D. blAULL Quarterback and safety J.D. Maull excelled on both sides of the football last Fri- day night as Cape lost an overtime heartbreaker to In. dian River in overtime 13-12. UJ.D. is the leader on defense and did a good job finding the open receiver on passing plays," Glenn said. "We have to design our offense so J.D. and Kai Maull are on the field together most of the time." J.D and cousin Kai give the Vikings six Maull QBs over the last 20 years. ELIZABETH BAKER Cape cheerleader Eliza- beth Baker's photo, shown above, was taken on the morning of her sixteenth birthday. EHzabeth is in her second varsity year on the 12 person squad coached by Donna Johnson and Amy Arnold. I like the dancing routines that we do to the bands' music," Elizabeth said. "It's rewarding when the fans take the time to tell us we're doing a good job.  EHzabeth is the daughter of Johnathan and Donna. MATT KREITZER Matt Kreitzer has been a hot goalie since he minded the nets two years ago for Vince Rasa's JV squad. Last Saturday, in perhaps Cape's biggest ever regular season win over an upstate oppo- nent, Kreitzer stopped 15 shots as Cape upset McKean 3-0. "Matt had at least one great save each half and he was just steady the entire game," said head coach John Myers. Kreitzer and his side- kickers will slide tackle Dickinson this Saturday. JOE DELOY Joe Deloy was all over the field defensively in Cape's upset victory over McKean. Joe started the game at stop- per and moved to fullback after Brett Williams left the game with a broken tibia. "I believed early in the game that we had the better ath- letes and would win, n Deloy said. "But I really didn't think we would win 3 to 0." Coach John Myers had noth- ing but praise for Joe Deloy. "Joe is a game day player," Myers said.
