The Vikings have the sixth best time going into the 3200m relay of 9:00 and hope to lower their season best by ten to twenty sec- onds. "We know we have our work cut out for us and we are looking forward to the challenge," said Adam Butner. "If we run our race, then we could surprise some teams ." Marrin, the Henlopen Confer- ence Champion last spring in the pole vault, will compete in the event beginning at 11 a.m. "I landed on mats for the first time all season at practice Wednesday, but I felt good and I'm going up to give it my best shot," said Martin.

SPLITS... 11 year old Matt Riggin of the Seashore Strider Grove Club received his Grove Hat for participating ten times last Tuesday evening during the walk- ing and jogging club. Matt, who has a 5K best in the mid22 minute range, shadowed training partners Doris Hicks and Pauline Porter for his best 6 miler at the last session. Matt turned it up a notch in the last half mile to turn in an impres- sive 48:15 to average an 8:02 pace for the Rehoboth run. Matt, who also kicks a soccer ball, dribbles a basketball, and swings a bat pretty well too, is a neat kid that takes everything in stride and definitely has a bright running future ahead of him...Jan LoBiondo and Ge- off Varell also received their Grove Club Hat for participating ten times, while Mark Diehl re- ceived his Grove Membership Card for his third time with the group. A total of 15 participants turned out last Tuesday, including 2 walkers as numbers are begin- ning to increase with the warmer weather. Lace em' up and give the Grove Club a try. For more information, contact President Robert G. Porter (and the "G" stands for "Groovin") at 226-9823 or we'll see you Tuesday at 6pm. .Talk at the high school is of a possible swim team that could reach Lewes in the very near fu- ture. Several kids in my classes made it clear that they think a team at Cape is a good idea and would give the water a dive. Seashore Strider youngster Jen Hicks is my runner/swimmer combination that is looking for- ward to her cross country and track career as a Viking. I'm looking forward to following her career and I'm also wondering how many new sports will keep surfacing at Cape...The April Seashore Strider Mini-Series is fi- nally set with the second annual April Fools Day Run opening the season scheduled for Saturday, March 30 beginning at 9 a.m. from Cape Henlopen State Park. On Saturday, April 6, Lewes Physical Therapy will hold its sec- ond annual Run to the Beach 5K that will take off from the Savan- nah Road Office and head to the beach. The race will begin at 9 a.m. On Saturday, April 20 in Selbyville, the second annual Old Timers Day 5K will be held be, ginning at 9 a.m. All three events have been moved to Saturdays, hoping to attract more participants and dodge more churchgoers. Each event will consist of a non- competitive walk to be held along with the featured 5K event. I will detail more race information in the next two weeks, as well as have applications ready by March 1 at the Cape Gazette, Cape Hen- lopen High School, and Shields Elementary School.
