Lenny Burridge, Race benefits Lewes, Rehoboth libraries The Mellon Bank 5K Run and Walk will donate the proceeds of the event to the Lewes and Re- hoboth public libraries to be used to purchase children's books. With a positive cause like that in mind, a field of 145 runners and 15 walkers turned out for the an- nual event last Sunday, July 9, held on the beautiful bike/jogging path at Cape Henlopen State Park. The new section of the path was completed this spring, which gave the runners a 5K loop with no traf- fic. three gradual hill inclines and ome beautiful scenery to sneak a peak at. "'This is one of the most beauti- ful courses that I have ever ran," commented veteran runner and race director Wayne Kursh of Wilmington. Kursh and wife Bar- bara both took part in the event and both put on the majority of the events in the northern Delaware region as Marathon Sports. Front runner Mike Monagle wasted little time as he shot to the lead in the opening quarter mile and never looked back after cruis- ing through 5:13 at the mile. Monagle hit the tape in 16:16 to win the male overall title and fin- ish more than a minute ahead of the field. Series regular Eric Payne was second in a time of 17:34, while Rehoboth Beach Patrol guard Ja- son McKay was third in 17:51. "I would like to give my trophy to the youngest runner in the race because all the kids that run down here is just great," said Monagle. Christine Lacy, who ran 20:33 at the Run For Danielle 5K, and 21:18 at the Fathers Day 5K, turned in a time of 21:08 to cap- ture the female overall title. 12, 19:24; 3. Lance Fargo, 19, 19:34 1.

Bill Hamaker, 137.33:36 SPLITS - Special thanks to the Sussex County EMS, as well as the Lewes Fire Department, that were both put to work at last weekend's Mellon Bank 5K. As race director, incidents can hap- pen at any time or place and since a Rehoboth Mile freak accident a few years ago where we lost a runner who had a heart condition, I have learned that you must be ready with a plan of action in place at any given time. As I was heading into the third mile taking overall champ Michael Monagle to the finish, I was alerted by ra- dio that a runner may be down in the opening mile of the course. By the time I arrived at the scene, Sussex and Lewes paramedics were on top of it, as well as Park Superintendent Pat Cooper. Ly- ing on the ground with shoulder, elbow, and knee injuries was se- ries sponsor Jimbo Lyons, 66, of Onley, .Va., who fell victim to the Cape grads Olympic hopefuls Cape Henlopen High School graduates Sonja Friend-Uhl and Marty Shue are currently in Sacramento, Calif. where they are com- peting in the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials July 14-23. Friend-Uhl, running for team Asics, will be trying to earn a spot on the Olympic team in the 1500-meter run. The first round of the 1500 will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, July 14. She is currently ranked 17th in a field of 38 runners in the event with a qualifying time of 4:13.93. If she qualifies for the finals, that event will be held at 2:05 p.m. Sunday, July 16. Shue, running for team Reebok, will be trying to earn a spot on the Olympic team in the 10,000-meter run. The final event will be held at 9:25 p.m. Friday, July 14. She is currently ranked 21st in a field of 26 runners with a time of 33:19.09. The top three finishers in each final will earn a trip to the 2000 Summer Olympics this September in Sydney, Australia. Final qual- ifying events will be televised on NBC July 15-16 and 22-23. Check your local TV listings to follow these Cape Region runners. three-foot high wood post at the entrance to the bike path. He was looked over and taken to Beebe for observation. No sooner did I get back to the finish area, that there was finish line worker Rusty LaPorte carrying 63-year-old Ron Baunchalk across the line. Baun- chalk looked as if the new course made it's way through Mike Tyson's ring as his face was cov- ered with blood from chin to fore- head. Ron, a series regular for the past few years now, pushed his aging legs into sixth gear in his five speed transmission body only to have them give out from under him at the three mile mark in the race. I rushed to get the paramedics again as they gave me that kind of "what kind of road race event are you putting on here, buddy?" look and they rushed to find Baun- chalk. Baunchalk, who won the 60-64 age group in 22:33, cleaned up a bit and remained at the awards ceremony to receive his $3 medal and a hug from presen- ter Leo Strine. At the conclusion of the event, Dr. Lee Masser, Joe LoBiondo and myself picked up a sore Lyons from Beebe and brought him to his car still at the park for his long ride home. Here's my message to all: pay attention and listen to your body because it's not worth the pain that you could cause yourself. Since I already have one Strider working in the chute with no hair, I don't need to lose anymore of mine. Slow down and be smart!

Dani Doodles walks the walk on Leather Hocklear By Dave Frederick This is a love story about kids from opposite sides of the stable. A romance between a pacer and a trotter would be sure to raise eyebrows and cause the other horses to cough into their oat bags. But nevertheless, Bone- breaker the stud mare trotter and father to Amelia J, the trotter- mother who ran off with a pacer named Tuned - and "got tuned" - and along comes Dani Doodles. The result could have been a re- ally slow pacer, but natural selec- tion dialed its own genetic code and produced the lighting fast trotter Dani Doodles, who is named after Dani Clouser of Re- hoboth, thanks to her uncle, B.J. 1oseph. But let's not get into all that Sussex County lineage. Dani Doodles won the Mary- land Sire Stakes 3-year-old Fillie Trotter race in a state record time of 1:57 at Rosecroft Raceway Jut y 1, along with a purse of $53, 600. Dani is owned by Bill Josep,h of Rehoboth Beach. Bill trained Dani in Florida and Parnam Sta- bles in Lewes. She was driven t:o victory by Bob Blanton Jr. B.J. Joseph, the Laurel High School basketball coach, and hfis son Kyle were in attendance t:o watch the big victory. B.J. volun- teered to carry the big purse home as long as he could hide it under his arm once he reached Re- hoboth. The first place horse gets to keep half of the purse. Dani Doodles is trained at PamAn Sta- bles by her owner Bill Joseph and Pare Mosley. "People thought I was crazy breeding a pacer to a trotter, but now magazines arid everybody wants to interview me," said Bill Joseph. "I just thought our horses were getting too inbred:" Submitted photo Owner Bill Joseph of Rehoboth Beach with his trotter Dalai Doodles. The horse recently set a record in the Maryland Sire Stakes 3-year.old Fillie Trotter race at Rosecroft.
