CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 21 - April 27, 2000 . 103 Cape freshman Dominique Kee clears a hurdle on the second leg of the 100-meter shuttle hurdle relay on April 15, Cape senior Arshar Smith hands off the baton to teammate Chris Jackson in the 800-meter co-ed re- lay last Saturday. Dan Cook photos Cape freshman James Eley clears the bar in the high jump. He teamed with Lindsay Barkauskie to place second in the event. Viking track teams place second in annual Co-ed Relays The Vikings fought off the harsh weather in the cold and windy Cape Co-ed Relays last Saturday afternoon, April 15, to finish second overall in the nine- team field with 68 points, only one point behind champion Lake Forest with 69. Seaford was also second overall with 68 points in the team standings The meet is an unique blend of relays on the track  in the field that pair up the girls and the boys and give teams a chance to com- bine their talent. Teams that may not be able to put four strong run- ners together, but have two top runners, seem to shine at this event as Lake Forest did this year. The Vikings have already beat the Spartans in an early season dual meet, but when talent was com- bihed, coach Jim Blades&apos; team held on for the victory. Cape did crown two indiviitual champions on the day as Donnell Eaddy and Toni Jones teamed up to win the long jump in a distance of 37-10. Cape also won the 4-by- 100-meter relay with the team of Kyle Mansfield, Dalneisha Shockley, Donnell Eaddy and Terez Partlow in a time of 47.16, vhich is one of the fastest times in the history of the relays. The Vikings also finished second in the 3,200-meter relay with the team of Tiffany Melendez, Matt Jackson, Arshar Smith and Chris Jackson in a time of 9:36.9, while the high jump relay of Lindsay Barkauskie and James Eley also was second in9 feet, 10 inches. The Cape sprint medley was sec- ond in 4:08.2, while the mile re- lay, triple jump and pole vault all RUNNING Tim Bamforth grabbed third place finishes. Cape wrapped up their scoring with a fourth, fifth and sixth place finish to come away with the sec- ond place team ophy. SHOWDOWN OF UNBEAT- ENS - The much-anticipated showdown between the undefeat- ed Cape, Dover and Caesar Rod- ney track teams scheduled for last Tuesday, April 18, was called due to weather. The meet has been rescheduled for 3:30 p.m. Thurs- day, May 4, at Cape High. Next up-for the Vikings is the Penn Relays in Philadelphia as the girls will compete in the 400- and 1600-meter relays on Thurs- day, April 27, while the boys will compete in the 400-meter relay on Friday, April 28, and 1600-meter relay on Saturday,, April 29, at Franklin Field. PHYSICAL THERAPY 5K PREVIEW - The annual running of the Lewes Physical Therapy. 5K and one-mile walk will be held this Saturday morning, April 22, at 10 a.m. beginning in front of the Lewes Physical Therapy of- fice on Savannah Road near Lewes Middle School. Registra- tion will begin at 9 a.m. for a race- day fee of $12 and awards will be presented to the overall champi- ons, overall masters, and the top three finishers in the following eight age groups: 9 and under, 10-13, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40- 49, 50-59 and 60 and over. The course will head down Sa- vannah Road and turn right at the Dairy Queen for a fast straight opening mile. Runners will pro- ceed toward Cape Henlopen State Park and take a right on Freeman Highway for a tough middle mile. The final mile will take runners down the west side of the bridge and back into town on Kings Highway. The only left on the course will be the final turn at the Lewes Library and Manila Av- enue which will take you to the finish behind the Lewes Physical Therapy office. The course is fast and I expect several of the age group records to be lowered. Come on out, celebrate Easter and spring and get a workout at the same time. See you on the start- ing line.

LaPORTE LEADS LEWES RUNNERS IN BOSTON MARATHON - Among the 17,000 runners lined up in historic Hopkinton, four Lewes residents made the trip and all came away with respectible performances. Lewes carpenter Rusty LaPorte, 46, led the way with a time of 3:30:30 (3:27:41 net time) as he finished 5,805th overall and 1,873rd in his age group. Cape graduate and the only Viking to capure an individual cross country title, Cindy Price, ran a time of 3:34:18 (3:30:44 net time) to fin- ish 758th in her age group. Nancy Berg, 38, ran 3:50:02 (3:44:20 net time) as she raised $3,713.00 for Cure Autism Now of Delaware and Shields Elementary School/Sussex Elementary Con- sortium. Berg, who qualified for next year's Boston, credits amaz- ing support of community and family. 'Tin hurting now, but I am very happy with my performance," said Berg. Sixty-year-old Dick Hipp also competed, but results were un- available at presstime. Also, con- gratulations to Summer Series Strider racer Reuben Beauchamp, 53, of Princess Anne, Md., who finished third in the 50-59 year old Veteran division with a great race of 2:45:34. Congratulations to all Boston Marathon finishers! (Note - The net time is the time from the starting line to the finish line, while official results list the time when the gun goes off. Many runners walk five to six minutes in the crowd just to reach the starting line.)

Lady Vikings gear up for Milford and Indian River Continued from page 101 ning. A two-out rally at the bot- tom of the fifth saw Warrington and Parseghian each connect for singles and score the final runs on a dropped fly ball in the Panther outfield. Warrington led the Viking Of- fense, going three for four at the plate with two runs scored and two RBI's. Couchman was 2-for-2, while Parseghian scored three in the winning effort. For Cordrey, however, Mon- day's rout is history and it's the next three weeks of play he looks to now. ' Cape Will "stay tuned" during spring break with a three-team tournament against Milford and Seaford next Thursday and Satur- day, April 26 and 29, at Milford before hosting Padua on April 29. The Vikings face Milford at home in conference play on May 4, then gear up for Southern Divi- sion leader Indian River and ace pitcher Cara Deldeo in Frankford on May 8. The final week of regular sea- son play sees the Vikings hosting 1999 state champs Caravel Acade- my. "We can't look by anybody," said Cordrey. "Our goal asa team this year is first of all to make the state tour- nament, and to make the state tournament ranked in the top eight teams so we can get a home team bye in the first round." CAPE HENLOPEN 11, LAU- REL 3 - Julie Parseghian "left the yard" twice against the Laurel Bulldogs last Saturdcay, April 15, and Maggie Lingo pitched a six- hitter as the Vikings posted an easy victory. One of Parseghian's home runs was hit so hard it ripped the glove from the outfielder and sent it over the fence along with the ball.
