Cape's Austin McEIrevey is flanked by Jake Bamforth on his right and Victor Rueda. The trip came through the mile together in 5:05 Cape Region Athletes Of TheWeek )) JA'VON CURRIE  J.J. is a junior known best as a wrestler with great balance who toils in those tough mid-level weight classes. He i.s now listed at 5-foot-9,170 pounds, but last winter he certified at 145. J.J. is a football player. He plays defen- sive back to the, quarterback's right hand; that means lots of action and deep balls thrown ,, in his neighborhood, not to mention power sweeps coming his way. Curry is up for it over four quarters - there is no fear. . Last Friday, night he knocked down three home run shots in the second quarter; then is the second half he got touches on offense and exploded on several jet sweeps, finally scoring on a fourth-quarter 3S-yard touch- ,down scamper. AUSTIN MCELREVEY A quiet guy, now a senior, doesn't say three words, just two, "See ya/' and off he goes. At Sussex Tech for a cross country showdown Oct. 23 versus the Sussex Tech Ra- vens and Milford Bucs, Austin came through the first mile of the 3.2-mile course with the Ravens' Jake Bamforth to his right and Victor Rueda on his left. The three are literally fast friends And then Austin started his slow burn over the last two miles, setting a course record in 16:42, pulling Victor to a 16:57 and Jake to t7:00. The Sussex County Championships are next Tuesday, Oct. 29, and the Henlopen Conference contest is Saturday, Nov. 2. Austin is a No. 1 threat in both races. JOE MCMILLON The Cape soccer team is 12-1 and has pitched eight shutouts this season. Back on defense dead center is long and athletic senior Joe McMillon, who is not his brother Sam, who is now at the University of Delaware. Sam's parents are British, and soccer is football and it's in the blood. "Joe's ability to defend has improved drastically in all areas of the position," said coach Gary Montalto. "Heading, clears, marking and positional play. This growth has been a large factor in Cape's eight shutouts and just seven goals allowed over 13 games." And just a great kid of high character goes with saying. CAMERON WICK A sophomore, first-year var- sity volleyball player, tall and athletic but the words "kill and block" don't seem to fit Cam's personality. A month ago dur- ing a match, she told referee Jim Powell she touched a ball "fourth hit" before it went back over the net, so the Cape point was taken off the board. "I never had that happen," Powell said. Cam, just 15 years old, is figuring it out against Caesar Rodney. She had 4 kills and 12 blocks at the net, many of them double rejects with Megan Hart at her side. Cam also plays lacrosse. This spring she should step into a varsity attack rotation that includes Allie Yeager, Sarah Tappan, Lexi Woodruff, Jordan Brown and others.
