Jim Lyons, 57, 23:50 STATE TRACK CHAMPS- The Viking girls of Cape Hen- lopen (105 points) fell short of catching powerful Division II Ur- suline Academy (157 points) at last week's State Championships, however Cape did crown three State Champions on the day. Thrower Jaimme Witherspoon shocked several including herself with a season-best throw of 34'5" to win the shot put, while leaper Maggie Widdoes won the high jump at 5' 1". The best race of the day, especially for Vikings, was the mile relay grand finale where Cape's Natasha Jones made up a 10 meter lead with a 59.6 anchor to blow by Ursuline down the stretch and lead her team to a 4:09.8 victory. Jones deserved to raise the baton in the air at the fin- ish like several other winners did (or the double hand pump like the professionals do), but showed her class by just sitting down on the track after a hard day's work. Her rest didn't last long as I made her get up, as Delaware State coach Duane Henry just smiled at what might be his new college freshman next year. Distance runner Jen Hicks took off with three laps to go in the 3200m run and went after leader Melody Rudd of Milford. Hicks ran a personal best of 12:14.4 for second as the downstate fans were cheering first place Rudd (12:10.2), second place Hicks, and third place Nic01e Faries (12:19.4) of Lake as the sprinted to the fin- ish ahead of three Ursuline run- ners in the race. Jessica Wither- spoon also finished second in the triple jump in 32'7", while Lind- sey Barkauskie tied for second in the high jump with a jump of 5'0". Hurdler Alexia Waples was sec- ond in the 300m hurdles in 48.6, while middle distance runner Danielle Guerin was third in the 800 meters in 2:26.9. Kai Maull won the long jump last Friday night in a new state meet record of 23'3" which is also the second longest all-time high school long jump in Delaware. Manll was al- so second in the 200m (22.3) in a Quality Design & Installation For Kitchens & Baths 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE FINANCING AVAILABLE 644-9006 RT24JUSTOFF RT1 AT FAMILYDOLLARMALL Night Recreation Program 7:00 - 11:00 p.m. 7 Days A Week Baltimore & The Boardwalk I " (Weekends only thru June 6) Public Tennis Courts 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. 7 Days A Week $7/hour- Phone 227-3598 No phone reservations accepted (Weekends only thru June 7) Arts & Crafts At The Grove Park Every Wednesday from 10 - 11 a.m. FREE May 28th Activity 0 is Beaded Jewelry Instructor Karyn Jennings Ages (5-12) 227-4648 Customer Appreciation Month Our Special "Thank You" For Choosing Us For Your Automotive Needs. & 0 Drawing to be held May 31, 1997 ;_\\; STOP BY OUR CONVENIENCE STORE AND ENTER TO WIN A FREE OIL CHANGE (Drawing Daily Thru 5/31/97) 1 $9For Every $20 Spent You'll Receive of FREE COLLECT PHONE CALLS/ 1141 Savannah Road, Lewes, DE 645-4543
