People Continued from page 84 Dick (Seaford coach Ron Dicker- son) must be going crazy," I said to Dave. "We ain't doing a bad job ourselves," he answered. Dave Frederick photo Shay Eli (left) and Jackie Shockley. TEACHER TREKKING- Shields School elementary teach- ers Shay Eli and Jackie Shockley have been walking together since last spring, motivated by a shared class picture with some students in which they felt they took up way too much of the wide angle and depth of field. It's all a matter of perception, because these two women look good and I should know because I passed them, but was mostly passed by them all summer on my walks through Re- hoboth. "We walk about four days a week, a distance of four to five miles," said Jackie Shockley from the stands of Cape Henlopen Monday afternoon where she and Shay ("Shay and she" doesn't work) cheered for the JV football team. "We just love the Board- walk." The women said that never was heard a discouraging word on their daily walks, unlike the Wild Dog Club to which I belong. "Did you ever make fun of the Wild Dogs after you passed us?" I asked. "Sometimes we joked about which side we should choose to pass," Jackie said. "But no, we admire you guys." We ad- mire you girls, too, but not in a bad way. SNIPPETS- The other Alomar sank the Yankee Clipper ship. The Cleveland Indians' Sandy Alomar's solo homerun in the bottom of the eighth in Game Four knotted the score, but also seemed to knot the stomachs of the entire Yankee roster. Cleve- land went on to win Game Four in the ninth and the series in Game Five and now face Baltimore in the best of seven. Baltimore is glad to see the Yankees stay home and doesn't want to relive any of that Angel in the Outfield mys- tique, or was that mistake? Cleve- land has that crazy-for-victory look about them. Must have something to do with not having a football team. But wait! Their team is in Baltimore, minus its pass defense. Can Cleveland fans develop a good old-fashioned hate phobia for Baltimore? What ido you think? Did you see Cal Ripkin in the locker room after the clincher over Seattle shaking and squirting his champagne bot- tle and carefully squirting team- mates? But Cal nex/er took a drink, did he? Image is everything, but Old Cal is for real. If Cal ever vis- its the house he's alleged to own near Silver Lake I'm going to offer him a can of Blatz, take his picture and sell it to the white milk lobby. "Hello, Cal? This is Dave Freder- ick from the Cape Gazette." "Go on now, gift .... Hey Cal. That's my line. Why you gotta play me like that?" Cape board chooses district coaches Cape Henlopen Schoo.l Board, during its Thursday, Sept. 25, meeting, approved the following directors and coaches for Cape Henlopen High School: John Walsh, assistant band director; E.A. Murauskas, assistant football coach; Chip Davis, assistant soft- ball coach; Frederick Massey Jr., volunteer football coach; and Christopher Jones, volunteer vol- leyball coach. For Lewes Middle School: Jeff Borris, head boys' basketball; Robert Lukach, head fall cheer- leading; Delores Gue, volunteer fall cheerleading; and Laura Brit- tingham, volunteer fall cheerlead- ing. For Milton Middle School: John Miller, volunteer football; Leonard Lucas, head girls' basketball; and Tommy Engel, volunteer soccer. The board accepted Dale Eck- rote's resignation from the Milton JESSICA WITHERSPOON Only a sophomore, the ex- plosive athlete has risen above the net during this volleyball season and leads the team in kills. Jessica is enjoying playing in the starting lineup with her old- er sister Jamee. "We're both out there representing the Witherspoons and Cape," Jessica said. Her four kills helped Cape defeat Howard 2-0 to raise the season record to 4-7. "We'd like to win the rest of our games and make the tournament, " Jessica said. CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, October 10 - October 16, 1997 - 85 Walls's overtime goal lifts Cape hockey past Indian River 3-2 By Susan Frederick Junior forward Emily Walls whipped a point-blank shot into the Indian River goal two minutes into the seven-on-seven overtime period to lift the Vikings to a nail- biting 3-2 win on Tuesday after- noon. The win kept the Cape hockey team undefeated at 7-0-1 while the Indians dropped to 5-3 on the season. "It was a typical Cape-IR game, a heck of an effort by both teams," said Coach Mike Eisenhour of the contest, which saw both teams come from behind to knot the score at 2-2 in regulation play. "We were playing back on our heels in the first half. We had cor- ner opportunities, but we weren't able to finish the play. In the sec- ond half I thought we took control of the game except for the final two minutes, when they slipped past us and caught us." River standout Christy McHale scored both goals for the Indians, the first at the fifteen minute mark when she slipped one just inside the right goal post as Cape keeper Erica Waples stretched to close the hole. Cape answered with less than two minutes, remaining in the first period when forward Kelly Palekar took an Alexia Waples pass at the top of the circle and scored on a reverse stick shot. "I knew it was going to be a close game," said Palekar. "It's a rivalry and anything goes. We played them last year in soccer and lost 1- 0, and we remembered that when we came here today. We came to win, not to tie, and definitely not to lose." Cape scored again off its first corner of the second half - just five minutes into the period - when Indian back Melissa Adams cleared the first shot at the goal only to see Walls send it back to a waiting Palekar. The Indians fought back mid- way through the period to push the ball inside the 25, but sweeper Taylor Marshall came up with two big clears to send the ball back to the midfield. Offensive momentum swung to the Indian River gifts in the final three minutes of regulation as they pressured the Cape cage in three comer opportunities. Waples saved an Adams shot off the second comer at the 26:00 mark, but the Indians would not be denied a third time as McCale fired one into the goal to bring the score to 2-2 with only a minute to play. Eisenhour credited his midfield and reserve players with keeping the ball out of Indian scoring range for most of the second half with Kim Smith, Jacki Warring- ton, Alison Gaffney and Samantha Catts all putting in strong efforts between the 25s. "It was an out- standing team effort," Eisenhour said. "Amanda Hopkins can create things for us. Shannon Colboum, Alexia Waples, and Sarah Arens- berg gave us great play off the bench today." Cape held a 12-8 advantage in shots on goal, allowing only one Indian River shot in the overtime period while getting off four. Viking goalie Erica Waples notched six saves, while Indian River goalie Betsy DuPont had five. In junior varsity action, high - scorer Lucy Short and teammate Brandi Reed each scored one to lead Cape to a 2-1 victory over the Indians. The win brought the ju- nior Vikes to a 5-2-2 record. Goalie Zina Hense stood in goal for the Vikings. In varsity play last week, senior Kim Smith scored the go-ahead goal 21:00 into the second period to secure a 2-1 win over Worces- ter on Friday afternoon. Amanda Hopkins scored one at the 13:00 mark of the first period, while Katherine Johnson put Worcester on the board to bring the game to a 1-1 tie at the half. Cape travels to Delmar on Tues- day, Oct. 14. JAIMEE WITHERSPOON Jaimee is used to watching her little sister play games but this season must move over at the net as the two Witherspoon girls drive home more spikes than John Henry. Last week in a 2-0 victory over Howard both girls had four kills. "It's strange being on the same varsity team for the first time, but it's really been fun," Jaimee said. Both girls are honor roll students, which is especially good news to their mother, Wan- da. NICK SHAFFER The sophomore defensive back had his first varsity in- terception Friday night as Cape defeated Sussex Tech 21-0. Shaffer also had a pair of knockdowns and several key tackles as the secondary withstood the pressure of Raven quarterback Randy O'Neill. Shaffer also handles the Cape punting duties and is one of the best in the con- ference. "Here's your Athlete Of The Week," said middle linebacker Haywood Burton after Friday's game.

The fleet-footed for- ward has been a stalwart for the Vikings all season as she contests every ball from midfield to the scoring circle and takes the right alley as her personal responsibility. Mental and physical toug h - ness paid off for her in Frankford when she stroked the final goal for victory.
