Large crowd turns out for Run for Danielle 5K The late Danielle Guerin, a one- time Cape middle distance star, was remembered May 24 during the annual Run for Danielle 5K and 1-mile walk that took place at Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes. The event attracted 210 runners and and a number of walkers for the largest turnout since the race was first held. "It was again a wonderful event and it was great to see all the sup- port that turned out to run and walk," said Marsha Guerin, Danielle's mother. Just before the start of the event, longtime runner and Cape senior Tiffany Melendez was pre- sented with the Danielle Guerin Scholarship for 2003 in the amount of $1,000. Tiffany then had the honor of firing the starting gun and jumping into the field to complete the 5K course. Penn State steeplechaser Chris Foster pulled away from master runner Leslie Wright just before the turnaround point to steal the $20 turnaround bonus and cruise to the finish in 16:06.

Cathy Bastian-McCollough MEET OF CHAMPIONS - One week following the Delaware state track championships, quali- fied athletes gather at the Univer- sity of Delaware for an event called the Meet of Champions. It is at this competition that the first place finisher is named first team All-State, which is much different than the past. Many athletes are still recovering from the state meet and fail to show at this meet, while others qualify for so many events that they just choose a se- lect one event to compete in. Cape's Katharine DeVilbiss won the 100-meter hurdles in 15:43 and also captured the pole vault on misses at 9-6. Freshman Elizabeth Decastro ran the fastest 800 meters ever for a freshman at Cape in a time of 2:24.3 as she led for the first 600 meters. The boY'S 400-meter relay fin- ished fifth in a time of 44.65, while Rebecca Hollingsworth was sixth in the high jump in 4-8, well below her season best. Jermaine Lambert finished third place in 11.8 for close out Cape finishers in the rain. During the rescheduled pole vault competition held this past Tuesday night at Caesar Rodney, Cape's DeVilibiss won the com- petition on misses in wet weather nearly unsafe for vaulting. DeV- ilibiss beat senior Division I state champ Kimberly Rusk of A.I. du Pont who recently stated in the press that "my only competition is myself." On the boy's side, Kevin Butler finished fifth at 11-6 as he jumped in a heavy downpour, while Cape's Division II state champ, Nick Lemmon, traveled to the meet, but decided to stay safe and dry and not compete in the vault. HERSHEY TRACK MEET - The annual Hershey Track and Field meet for young athletes be- tween the ages of 9 and 14 will be held Sunday, June 1, at Cape Hen- lopen High School in Lewes. Registration will begin at 1 p.m. followed by the first gun at 2 p.m. SPLITS - Clemson's Kai Maull will compete in the East Region Ch.ampionships on Friday and Saturday at George Mason University where he is entered in long jump and the triple jump. The top five athletes will qualify for the NCAA Champinships to be held in early June. RUSTY RUDDER 10K AND 5K - Highway One Group and Marathon Sports Event Manage- ment will host the Rusty Rudder 10K and 5K run/walk at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 31.
