Kai Maull named Delaware's Indoor Track Athlete of the Year This was the week of attending banquets and gathering postsea- son honors as Cape Henlopen se- nior Kai Maull highlilhted the Delaware All-State Indoor Track and Field Banquet held Wednes- day evening at Brandywine Ter- race in Claymont. Maull was named Delaware In- door Track Male Athlete of the Year as a result of maybe the finest season an indoor track ath- lete has ever put together in the state of Delaware, In only his first season on the indoor circuit, the Clemson-bound Tiger won four individual titles, shattered two state records and meet records, broke two Tower Hill records, and added his name to All-Time Tower Hill top ten lists in the 50 meter, 200 meter, 400 meter, long jump and triple jump. In addition to the statewide achievements, Maull also broke the Cape school record in the long jump, triple jump and 500 meter dash. All these achievements are even more amazing when thinking back to just one year ago, Maull was just beginning his track and field career to "stay in shape for football and basketball." "When I went to last year's All- State banquet and watched Jet- maine Thomas of Caesar Rodney win the Athlete of the Year tro- phy, I told myself that that was going to be the one I win this year," said Maull. "I would like to thank God for my talent, as well as my family and coaches for all their support. Without them, I wouldn't have been able to make it this far." This weekend in Boston, Kai will be on the runway with per- Imps one of the finest long jump fields ever assembled as he com- petes at the National Scholastic Indoor Championships. Kai will also compete in the triple jump, where he is currently in the top ten in the nation with a 48-feet-11- inch jump. He is currently third nationally in the long jump with a season best of 24-6, and is the defending national outdoor champion where he leaped 24-7 to win the title last June in Raleigh, N.C. Also com- peting will be defending indoor champion Mike Newell of Vir- ginia who has a 25-9 this season, Greg Yendell (24-7), Marcus O'Neill (24-4), and a host of other athletes capable of going over 24 feet on any given day. "I'm hoping I can just jump bet- ter than my personal best of 24-7 and represent Delaware as well as I can. At this level, anything can happen on any given day. But I'm definitely going after the gold." Tim Bamforth Barkauskie named first team high jumper Cape sophomore Lindsey Barkauskie was named to the first team All-State girls' team with her first place pe2lrormance of 5-5 RUNNING in the high jump. The new Cape school record holder was also the high jump Grand Prix champion, and will also compete with the na- tion's best this weekend at the Na- tional Scholastic Championships in Boston. Bantam girls at banquet The six members of the Seashore Strider bantam girls team that finished third at the na- tional championships last Decem- ber in Orlando, Fla. were honored last weekend at the Amateur Ath- letic Union Mid-Atlantic Nation- al Championship Awards Banquet in Jeffersonville, Pa. Runners Chelsea Palmer, Laura Olenderski, Bethany Pavlik, Sarah Neff, Brennan Killeen and Helena Melendez were presented large plaques with their names in- scribed by National Cross Coun- try Chairman Larry Wilson. "Our whole team was real hap- py when we finished third at the nationals, but we know that it took a lot of hard work," said All- American finisher Laura Olender- ski, who was 21st out of 209 run- ners in the race. "We only lose our number four and five runners next year and Chelsea [Palmer], Bethany [Pavlik], Helena [Melen- dez] and me all are going to run as bantam again. We all know we can do real well next year, but we have to keep training all year." The bantam team will graduate No. 4 runner Sarah Neff and No. 5 Brennan Killeen to the next class. Congratulations to the third place bantam girls team and the post- season awards that they earned.
