Top prize went to Delaware State alumnus Scan Turner in a time of 16:47, while Julie Mesaros won the Overall Female title in 20:26. Cape May biker Joe Link, who may soon be sponsored by the Cape May Ferry, won the male master division in 17:26, while Margaret Bryant won the female master division in 21:44. One of the highlights of this event was watching the fathers and siblings run through the course together as several family pairs took part. "This race is fun and unique be- cause it,attracts a lot of first timers and it's neat to see the kids and fa- thers run together," said Richard Tikiob. The proceeds of the event will go to the Needy Children Fund and sponsor Coldwell Banker thanks all that took part to make it a success. Track Note- Champion Scan Turner was featured recently as Athlete of the Week and was quoted as being the only "white guy" to receive a sch61arship to Delaware State University. I have to correct Scan, as Coaches Joe Burden and Fred Sowerby slid me a cross country/track package back in 1985 when Delaware State was only a College as I stayed four years in Evers Hall on campus. Even though my 15:50/32:58 college marks were not much to write home about when. talking D-I track, but I too was a running Hornet back in the day. when I ran on a five time MEAC champion cross country team as the only EuroAmerican.
