118 - CAPE GAZEIWE, Friday, May 2 - May 8, 2003 Cape girls run past Sussex Tech; boys suffer third loss of season The Vikings of Cape Henlopen hosted the Ravens of Sussex Tech April 29 under warm, sunny skies in Lewes. The Raven boys are a team that has been on the losing end of the baton in the past when visiting loaded Cape teams, but this year's Tech team is loaded with sprinters, and is solid in the distances and field events to spread out well and score points in many places. The interesting thing about the Tech/Cape meet is that because Sussex Tech draws athletes from many areas of the county, several Cape and Tech athletes know each other on a first name basis, many went to elementary school with each other, and Tech names Jones, Mann, Mauli all have Cape ties. Charlie Pollard's Cape boys suffered their third loss of the sea- son as Sussex won 15 of the 18 events, including all four relays en route to an 88-58 victory. "We have had some long days in the past few years when we have come to Cape so we wanted to run well today and get ready for the end of the season," said Tech coach Marty Cross. The Vikings only scored 24 points on the track to Tech's 68, only six points shy of winning the meet without scoring in any field events. Cape outscored Tech 34- 20 in the field events. Sussex Tech's Kevin Maull, brother of Cape grad Kai Maull, had a big day winning the long jump and anchoring a blistering 400-meter relay win in 43.6, while Marcus Morris (400/200), and Chris Singh (1600/800) each won two eventsand were a part of a winning relay. Cape's Vince Lewis and Greg Swift competed tough against tal- ented Morris and Singh, but the most exciting event of the day was the 400-meter relay win by Bran- don Mann, Andre Johnson, Justin Hardy, and Maull. The Vikings led going into the third turn with Brandon Streett, but Tech's Hardy ate up the turn like a freight train oto give Maull the stick with a five-yard lead into the anchor leg. Cape's Jake Adams won the dis- cus in 108=2, while teammate Nick Lemmon won the pole vault in 12-0. Tim Bamforth CAPE GIRLS WIN - The Cape girls continued their win- ning ways with an easy win of 101-40 over the Ravens. Cape's Katharine DeVilbiss scored 20 points to be named meet high scorer as she captured the 100 hurdles in 15.4, the 300 hur- dles in a quick 46.7, the 200 me- ters in 26.9 and the pole vault in 8- 6. DeVilbiss was only tenths of a second away from the school record in the 300 hurdles held by teammate Rhonda Ferguson. Charli Tabler won the shot put (32-11) and the discus (120-2), while the Vikings won three of the four relays on the day. RUNNING Sussex Tech's Toni Jones, a for- mer Cape runner, had an impres- sive homecoming as she won the long jump (17-2), the triple jump (32-9), finished third in the 100 meters (13.4) and brought the Tech fans to their feet with a blis- tering anchor in the 400 meter re- lay to bring her team home in 52.3. The Vikings travel to the Easton Invitational on Friday, May 2, as will the Ravens of Sussex Tech. PENN RELAYS - The largest Track Carnival in the country was held last weekend in Philadelphia as the annual Penn Relays brought the local Vikings north to the city.
