Myers, Jack Vassalotti wears a skirt but no one will chase himl layer of the Year - Cape junior Tess Bernheimer was named Field Hockey Plhyer of the Year for 2014, ac- cording to WikiLeaks and Face- book, although I'm still waiting foamy official press release that comes from where and whom I have no idea. Tess was the most d : gerous two-way player on the state's best team, running the middle of the field with sp ed to burn and a scorching slap shot. Sam Broadhurst was named to the first-team all-state squad while Marlee McGinness and Erin Coverdale were named second team. All-state teams are mildly interesting but mostly a travesty of talent evaluation. Tess is a next-level player and one of five starters returning for Cape along with Sydney Ostroski, Erin Coverdale, An- nie Judge and Lizzie Frederick. Lexi Gooch was a spot starter - missed some games with a hand injury - and Riley Shields is heir apparent at the goalie position. That leaves four spots up for grabs for 2015 and plenty of talent to contest for prime-time minutes, so don't "pitch about it," just beast up and get ready. Ready to rock and roll - Sussex Tech football plays at Middle- town at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 21. Saint Mark's plays at Wil- liam Penn at 1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 22, in the other Division I semifinal matchup. The Ravens will roll to 30 points on Friday, and I believe they will win, but Middletown is a big-game program with players who sav- agely sell out on every play. St. Georges, coached by J.D. Maull of Lewes, hosts Hodgson at 11 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 22. Laurel will play Friends at Caravel at 2:30 p.m., Saturday in the other semifinal Division II game. Academics askew- Some 18,000 students apply to Duke every year and 4,000 get ac- cepted..And of that number, 41 percent attend. Average SAT scores for those accepted average about 1400 for reading and math combined. How does Duke basketball find tremen- dously tall freshmen with those academic skills and test numbers who want to play for the great Coach K for a single season before bolting to the NBA? Whatever Duke is selling, I ain't buying it. We all stupid! - Send me back 300 years and I can tell stories about all the techno- logical advances that have been discovered to make life more comfortable for humans at the expense of planet animal. But I don't know how or why anything works; in the realm of engineering I qualify as stupid.
