For 162 years until it fell into the sea in 1926, the landmark Cape Henlopen, Del., lighthouse had warned mariners away from the treacherous shoals that surround the entrance to Delaware Bay.For many years, it was not only the tallest structure in Sussex County, Del., but guarded the entrance to one of the nation's busiest commercial estuaries.When constructed by the British in 1764, the tower was a mile from shore facing the Hen and Chickens shoals, named for a large shoal surrounded by smaller ones.

It should come as no surprise that a South River-Severna Park field hockey game ended with a one-goal difference. What is surprising is how the No. 5 Falcons (10-2) were able to carry the play for most of the game in their 2-1 victory over the No. 4 Seahawks (8-3) on Tuesday at Kinder Farm Park. Cassy Zachares and Lauren Duvall scored second-half goals for Severna Park, which erased a 1-0 halftime deficit by taking 11 shots in the second half and won its third straight game since losses to the Seahawks and Cape Henlopen (Del.)

A trip to the beach can be an educational one if you choose Lewes, Del., as your destination. It can be a quiet one, too, especially in the fall as the peak tourist season winds down. Located near Cape Henlopen (where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean), Lewes is loaded with history -- so much so that it would be a main center of the proposed Delaware National Coastal Heritage Park. What Lewes is not loaded with are noisy arcades, crowded mega-restaurants and loud bars. "This is a town that really values history," says Carol Cutbill, a docent at the Zwaanendael Museum, which is named after Lewes' original moniker.

No. 14 John Carroll used a combination of the inside play of Mike Tertsea and alternating zone defenses to frustrate visiting No. 2 Mount St. Joseph. The Patriots led the entire game and won every quarter to upset the Gaels, 47-39, on Friday night. Tertsea finished with a game-high 16 points and Jordan Martin made three 3-pointers in the second half to keep John Carroll in front. The slowdown tempo favored the Patriots (8-5, 1-1 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference)

With his 0-3 team trailing visiting Atholton 14-0 at halftime Saturday, Long Reach senior Rob Carter had cause to be dismayed. But rather than get down, the running back got to work, rushing for two fourth-quarter touchdowns and leading his team to a 15-14 win on homecoming. "We just had to keep playing. We already knew the talent we had on this team, we just had to keep fighting. I never gave up on my team," said Carter, who gained 80 yards on 16 carries in the second half alone.

Marine biologists have confirmed that a teenager was bitten by a shark at Cape Henlopen State Park on Monday, and officials said the boy had to get about 25 stitches to close the wound on his arm. The 16-year-old boy, who was not identified, was standing in about 5 feet of water at the popular beach destination around 5 p.m. when he felt something grab his left arm, according to the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control....

Although his team was a man down for 30 minutes against the No. 1 boys soccer team in the nation, Loyola coach Lee Tschantret didn't allow his team to draw into a "defensive shell" and instead encouraged them to "continue to attack. " The Dons (4-1), ranked No. 2 in the Sun poll, fought on and upset host DeMatha, 2-1, in double overtime Friday. The National Soccer Coaches Association of America ranked the Stags (2-2) No. 1 nationally. The Washington Post also ranked DeMatha No. 1 in the D.C. metro area.

There's a new exhibit waiting to greet summer visitors at Delaware's Cape Henlopen State Park. And it's big. It's a 16-inch gun barrel that once roared from the deck of the battleship Missouri during World War II, and it now rests — 120 tons, 68 feet long — at the Battery 519 Museum at Fort Miles, which is part of Cape Henlopen State Park. The gun — officially known as Barrel 371 — arrived at Fort Miles last month. It is similar to the two 16-inch Army guns that defended the coast and the Delaware Bay from German U-boats.

LEWES, Del. -- Tower 7, as it's known, is 65 years old and 110 feet tall, scratched with graffiti and whipped by decades of salty ocean winds - but it remains nearly as solid as the day it was hurriedly built by a country on the verge of war. Horace Knowles is 84 and about 5-foot-10. He is still standing tall, too, despite circulatory problems and respiratory issues that force him to use a portable oxygen tank when he takes his memory-stirring walks through the dunes over which the tower looms.

I TOOK it as a good omen when I pulled my bathing suit out of winter storage last week and found a washed $5 bill in its pocket. That's about a dime for each summer my family and I have traveled to the beach, as a unit, in what amounts to a very cozy, if unvaried, vacation. These vacations began the summer of 1953, when I, the oldest son, was 3, and continues this year, almost 50 seasons later. Our version of a family vacation imposes a set of rigid requirements. We observe the rituals pretty much as we did in 1953 - a place on the ocean, most meals at home and lights out early.
