Cape track team opens season- with double wins over Milford April Fools' Run and Walk set for Sunday The spring season has arrived on the local running scene, which means the start of the local road racing season; warm weather, which encourages most to shed the extra winter pounds; and, of course, weekly action of local high school track and field. The boys and girls of Cape Hen- lopen, under head coaches Ed Waples and George Pepper, each came away victorious at their last Tuesday opener with the Milford Bucs and first-year coach Czar Bloom. The boys won the meet 82-64, while the girls also won by a score of 110-27. Four-time State Champion Kai Maull scored 20 points to lead the Vikings, as he swept the jumping events with easy performances of 5 feet, 6 inches in the high jump, " 22-0 in the long jump and 41-5 in the triple jump. Maull also won the 200-meter dash in a personal record of 21.9 seconds. Maull's time ranks up with school record- holder Rick Pitts's 21.9 perfor- mance from the 1986 Henlopen Conference meet and the 22.1 per- formance from the 1986 Division I state championships. "That was my fastest 200-meter race ever and it was nice to get a fast time early in the season," said Maull. "I know hand times are much slower than an automatic time like they use at the state meet, but it feels good to finally go into the 2- second range." The Vikings split on the relays with Cape taking the 1,600.meter and 3,200-meter, while Milford took the 400 and 800 events. Bri- an Kniepp picked up where he left off indoors by winning the 1,600 in 5:03, while Chris Jackson won the 400-meter dash in 54.5. James Kittrell won the 300 hurdles in 45.4 and Brian Calloway won the discus in 95- ! !. Mark Moore won the shot put in 39-3 and also came out of the blocks to take second in the 100 dash in 12.6. Well-experienced trackster ju- nior Janelle Savage also swept the jumping events winning the high jump in 4-10, long jump in 15-6 and triple jump in 33-9 to grab 15 points for the Vikings. The 33-9 distance in the triple jump is clos- ing in on a personal best distance for Savage. "I'm pretty happy to start out with a good day, but I have a long way to go to reach my goals," said Savage. "I would like to reach 35 feet in the triple and 17 feet in the long this season, and since my sis- ter, Princess, has one jumping state title and brother Willie has twelve jumping, state titles, it's my turn to get one." Senior Alexia Waples won the 100 dash, 300 hurdles, and ran on RUNNING Tim Bamforth two winning relays, while defend- ing conference champion Danielle Guerin anchored the winning 3,200 relay and won the 800 run. Carrie Litke won the 400 dash, Meredith Marshall won the 200 dash, Jaimme Witherspoon won the shot put and Julie Jackson won the discus. Waples, Litke and Savage are the captains of this year's girls' squad. Both teams were in post-dead- line action yesterday at home against Woodbridge.

SPLITS- The Lewes Middle School track program has been nonexistent for several years; however, the team is back on track with more than 30 boys and girls participating. The team is coached by former Cape hurdler Gilbert Maull and opens next Wednesday against Selbyville at Cape Heniopen High School. The team is learning track and field, working hard together and, most importantly, having fun in the process. This program should be a nice addition to the high school team with kids learning the basics of track and field at the junior high level. Several former Cape track names are out for the team, like Snead, Jones, Holloman, Miller, Jackson, Streett and Massey which should bring some talent to Continued on page 81 Joe & Margaret Mansfield Serving the Eastern Shore of MD & DE You'll love our Quality, Service & Reasonable Prices!
