Degnan Scholarship win- ner and all-American track per- former Kai Maull fired the start- ing gun and then jumped in the race to participate himself. "It means a lot to me to win the Bill Degnan Scholarship because Mr. Degnan just wanted his ath- letes togive their best, be positive, and compete tough," said Maull, who along with Jen Maull won the $500 award. "I try to do those things every time I compete and when I go to Clemson next year I'll take Mr. Degnan's memory with me and try to focus on those Tim Bamforth things that he thought were important." Kai Mauil wasn't the on- ly one com- peting tough, as Rich Oldrieve of Ohio stole the men's win in a time of 16 Mike Mock strides in the minutes 42.8 Degnan 5K. seconds, while Kathleen Petrera of Salisbury fin- ished 14th with a time of 17:58.1 to win the women's title.
