SPOON RETURNS - Power forward Jessica Witherspoon re- turned to ac- tion after miss- ing one game with a sore back, to lead the Cape girls' basketball team to a 40- 25 victory over Sussex Cen- tral. "Spoon" WITI-IERSPOON received clearance to play only hours before the game and scored 18 points in the victory. Cape, mi- nus Witherspoon, defeated Sussex Tech Dec. 18, by the score of 36- 30. "We all played hard, and I think we played pretty well with- out Jessica," said point guard Megan Oakes. BOYS SWIMMING - Cape swim team coach Bill Geppert just shrugs his shoulders when asked about the team score for boys. That's because a sport that requires large numbers to cover all the events only has six athletes participating. "Maybe it will start to build," Geppert said.. "Until then, we will focus on individual goals." FIVE-SECOND MAN - Tues- day night, Dec. 22, Cape center Adam Scott fouled out of the game with only five seconds re- maining. Coach Ed Waples sent Tim Widdoes onto the floor for his first appearance. Widdoes' face couldn't mask the fact that his athletic pride had been hurt. Coach Waples is a good guy and would never intentionally embar- rass a player. And a player is there to be available at all times, no matter how limited. But as the players say, "That just ain't right!" Widdoes is a star ready to sparkle. Next year he will be catching passes and play- ing defensive back for Brian Don- ahue's football team. Widdoes could even play quarterback, be- cause he is that kind of athlete. In basketball, he can rim the point if needed or play on the wing. Every great athlete has a "I remember the time" story and now Widdoes ing of Division I lacrosse practice at UMBC. Prac- tice begins mid-January, with the first game at the end of Febru- STEELE ary. The other athlete was baseball player Matt Crouch who was sporting that military-makeover look. "I'm at Fort Bragg with the 82nd Airborne," Crouch said proudly. "I've already made nine jumps and I absolutely love it." CHRISTMAS CONTI - Delaware's All-American speed- demon, Eddie Conti, will be play- the Christmas Day Blue- Gray All-Star Football game, at 11 a.m., televised by ABC. Line- man Brian Cook has also been se- lected to play for the Blue in the 61st annual game played at the Cramton Bowl or is that the Ralph Kramden Bowl? The Blue team features just nine players below the Division I-A level. These post-season bowl games Could be money in the bank for Conti if he runs back a kick or catches a touchdown. HURST WILL DELIVER - Cape graduate and Florida State senior Matt Hurst will be the Cape Gazette roving journalist on location for the Jan. 1 Fiesta Bowl National Championship game be- tween Florida State and the University of Tennessee. Hurst will file a timely atmos- phere-and- background- type story, un- less the volun- HURST teers emerge victorious, in which case he will file a litany of "Elvis is dead jokes".

Helping with reconstruction in Bosnia Rachel and Rick Grief-Reynolds of Lewes and Arden joined co-workers in the Fel- lowship of Reconciliation this past summer in the war-torn town of Kozarac, Bosnia. They took along a copy of their newspaper - which they are holding here - to share with their co-workers. Following their return to the U.S., Rachel wrote: "The charm- ing seaside life reflected in Barefootin' and People In Sports stands in marked con- trast to the task of cleaning out remains of bombed and burned kitchens and bed- rooms of our Moslem refugee friends as they look to reconstruction, reconciliation and returning back safety." Bosnia is a constituent republic of the Euro- pean country that many of us know as Yugoslavia and its capital is Sarajevo, site of the winter Olympics not too many years ago. The country has been tom by internal strife over the past decade involving fighting between Moslem and Serbian resi- I I t Please deliver all the local news to: I II Please print I I I Your name I I I I I Your address I I I I City State ZIP I I II ---one I Second address (Snowbird) SUBSCRIPTION RATES (Enclose check) I1 $25 Sussex County (52 wk) , $13 Sussex County (26 wk) i l. :11 $40 Out-of-County (52 wk) :; out,.rco..ty:i00w,) I O $30 Snowbird i  i: II+Co!I  Stl,ldlt (91'no.)
