Cape Gazette Sports & Outdoors TUESDAY, JUNE 17 - THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2008 29 Families gather for 19th consecutive Father's Day 5K Moms and dads have friendly contest as Benbow edges Levy for first-place win By Dave Frederick runner by way of Sussex Central fredman@capegazette.com and Salisbury University, put 20 Dave Luscan is an accom- plished tri-athlete and a recent member of the fatherhood club. He ran last Sunday's Father's Day 5K in 17:16 placing fourth overall and winning the 35-39 age group. And then, like a good dad, he jogged back into race traffic picking up his wife Leigh Ann - a person always smiling - and 5- month-old daughter Rowan and came back across the fmish as Rowan completed her first "rac- ing stroller child" 5K in 31"30. "It's her personal record so now she has something to shoot for," Dave Luscan said with a smile. Enos Benbow, the Jamaican Enos Benbow put 20 seconds be- tween himself and Larry Levy to win the 5K race. seconds' distance between him- self and Larry Levy, who won the Blue-Gold 5K race the previous day, to win in 16"34 besting Levy's time of 16:56. "I thought of making a move the last two blocks but my legs were stiff and I didn't know what Enos had left because he never looks like he's working hard," Levy said. Cindy Conant of Rehoboth captured the woman's title in 19:56 over Sarah Steele who ran 21:02. Her husband, Carlton, won the men's 45-49 race in 20:06. The running Conants ran the Blue- Gold 5K the previous day with Cindy running 19:.51 and Carlton running 1. 58. "I'm always joking about Carl- ton not being fast enough to catch his wife," race director Tim Bamforth said. Scott Peterson of Dover ran the race with his daughter, Jenni, a 2004 University of Delaware graduate who works in the Jack Lingo real estate office. Scott McMillon ran the race with his family which included his wife Angela and sons Sam, Joe and Josh. The McMillons are a local Cape family of student athletes. Sam was a Beacon bas- ketball player last season and will attend the Cape's Ninth Grade Academy in the fall.

RUNNERS HEAD OUT at the start of the Father's Day 5K in Rehoboth Beach. DAVE FREDERICK PHOTOS The McMillon family (I-r) includes Scott, Sam, Angela, Joe and Josh (in front). FoI owing codes of comedy I'm allowed to make fun ot' Q-Tips person who is not me speculated, at ! am. on referendum day, . -- that passage looked doubtful because of the QrTip factor and when I feigned a mo- ronic look she said, "Senior citi- zens," and I responded, "(27Tip." By the way, I am one, so that means - following the codes of comedy - I'm allowed to make fun of them. The senior lobby and lots of seniors out in the lobby usually spells trouble for passage of any- thing that by vote appears to cost taxpayers more money. Here at the beach the metric is young families chasing kids with camcorders and a burgeoning senior population and influx of transplants and transplanted people who have little-to-no real connection or integration with the school district. I never fall back to the land of the outraged and appalled and I never pitch my tent on the moral high ground. I believe in encouraging adult enthusiasts who are posi- tive on the energy of youth, be- cause as much as I would like to think I am the future - even when I was I wasn't as my own grandmother looked at me when I was 14 and said, "My heavens, the world is in trouble." Closing out this issue, I did notice many axe grinders with all kinds of personal agendas working to shoot down the ref- erendum as shooting things down is the only sport they play and the number of local youth sports leagues - like just about all of them - who did nothing to encourage or mobilize parents to get out and vote. You have to play to win! WHAT UP, CHASER? Chase Ut- ley has lost two games for the Phillies this year by botching routine plays. On Sunday, June 15, in the lOth inning he went Lit- fie League twice, missing the old pitcher covering t'mst throw by a country mile. You just know pitcher Tom "Flash" Gordon wanted to say something to the California Kid who is the best second baseman in all of baseball when he isn't throwing balls behind pitchers covering bags. Chase needs to be booed in his own park, be- cause if he was McNabb Philly fans would be all over him. Guaranteed when Chase takes the field against the Red Sox he gets the Standing O Treatment just because Philly fans are only selectively brutal.
