Barkauskie owns a personal best of 5-5 at the same location two years ago as a sophomore, and the all-time fourth best jump indoors. The jump is the highest Delaware high school performance ever at Delaware as the three girls ahead of her performed their jump at Tower Hill. The talented jumper hopes to rebound and put it all to- gether for the upcoming outdoor season. Freshman Rebecca Hollings- worth finished eighth overall, which is great news for the future in a new personal best of 4-8, while junior Amber Smith was ninth in the shot put in 28-6.

MAULL, CLEMSON DOMI- NATE - Cape graduate Kai Maull, a sophomore at Clemson, finished second in the long jump at last weekend's ACC Champi- onships in Blacksburg, Va. Maull jumped a season best of 24-9 to finish behind Joe Allen of Florida State (25-1) and earn his first AII- ACC honor. Maull moved up to third place on the All- Time Clemson Indoor long jump list. Five jumpers were more than 24 feet, while 10 were over 23 feet on the day in a field of 25 MAULL total jumpers. The Tigers went on to dominate the competition with 168 points, well ahead of North Carolina in second with 89 points and North Carolina State in third with 86 points. With the Tiger performances, the country's top sprint team moved up into the third position in the NCAA Division I ranking with 37 points, trailing distance powers Arkansas (64) and Stan- ford (50). Clemson's Shawn Crawford, Maull's roommate, is the favorite in the 60 and 200 at the NCAA Championships after running 20.43 in the 200 meters on a flat Virginia Tech oval to break the American collegiate record of 20.56 set by North Carolina's Mil- ton Campbell in 1998. Another housemate, Ato Modibo, is also favored in the 400 meters with a personal indoor best of 46.11. Maull, with a personal outdoor best of 25-7, has provisionally qualified for the long jump with his 24-9; however, he is sitting in 29th place in the country with on- ly 18-20 athletes receiving the in- vitation. It looks like Maull will compete in the Last Chance Meet at Vir- ginia Tech and will have to jump in the area of 25-2 to secure a spot at his first indoor nationals. HOT CHOCOLATE RUN - The annual Grove Club Hot Chocolate Run and Walk will be at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 7, at 27th Street and the Boardwalk in Ocean City.

Donoway, a Seashore Strider racer and veteran marathoner, also completed her 40th time at the club and received her sweat shirt. CLOSING IN ON 300 - The Grove Club is approaching a milestone as the 300th session of the weekly club is just around the comer with No. 297 already in the books. The milestone date will be Tuesday, March 14, at the Grove Park in Rehoboth Beach. Over and outl Kings Creek foursome wins World Pro-Am at Pebble Beach The Kings Creek Country Club foursome of Robert J. Smith Jr., Howard Richardson, Jack Daggett and professional Tyson Mayers recently one the 15th annual World Pro-Am golf tournament held recently at the historic links of Pebble Beach. The four-day tourna- ment was conducted the week after the AT&T PGA tournament where Tiger Woods won his sixth straight PGA event. Just like the weather experiences during the AT&T, the tournament was plagued by bad weather, with howling winds and horizontal sheet rain. No rain checks here -every player sim- ply had to deal with the elements. The team started the tournament at Spy- glass Hill Country Club, arguably the most difficult golf course in the world. It then played at the Bayonet Country Club, an ex- tremely long, undulating and tight golf course noted for its 10,000 Monterey Cy- press trees which line its fairway on every hole. The Links at Spanish Bay was the third test, a links type, target golf course with a premium placed on tee-shot accuritcy. The Pacific Ocean is visible on nearly every hole at Spanish Bay. The best was saved for last with the team finishing the tournament at the bastion of golf, Pebble Beach Golf Links. The victory was the definition of "ham and eggs" golf. Each team member made sub- stantial contributions to the win. Richardson carded the team on the first day with a series of professional quality two-iron shots from 230 yards. Smith got the team jump-started at Bayonet with a fabulous pitch-in on the second hole. Spanish Bay was all Mayers with three "twos" on his scorecard. The team saved its best play at Pebble Beach Golf Links where Daggett ran off a string of four birdies in six holes, Richardson birdied the impossible 8th hole; Smith brought the treacherous 9th hole to its knees and Mayers knocked it to a foot on the famous 17th hole. This annual tournament featured competi- tors from all over the country; country clubs from more than 20 states competed in the event. Most of the teams were from states east of the Mississippi River, taking a break from an unseasonably cold winter on the breathtaking Monterey Peninsula. The Kings Creek Country Club was spon- sored by the Robert J. Smith Companies and RE/MAX Realty Group.
