Young runners dominate Women's Distance Festival By Dave Frederick and Tim Bamforth Cape Gazette staff The Seashore Striders Women's 5K Dis- tance Festival began Saturday, July 22, at Rehoboth Elementary with black clouds rumbling overhead. Race director Tim Bamforth looked towards the heavens, shrugged his shoulders and fired the gun. The young girls in the race "took it out," and coming through the mile Emily Forrey, Brittany Hams and Mary Ann Russell were all cruising under six minute mile pace and all under 14 years old. Itjust f61t hke a race at school," said the 13-year-old Forrey from York, Pa., an un- beaten on the local racing scene at the beach. "I knew the other girls running with me were about my age, but I felt good until I went off course and lost about 15 seconds. I'm not used to leading because there are always men in a road race to follow." Forrey, who is smooth as frozen yogurt, stayed on the course to notch a victory in 18:54. Brittany Harris, 12, from Steve Pickering's Delaware Express Track Club, placed second in 20:03 to capture the 10-13 age group. Harris recently ran 11:21 in the 3,000 meters. "I felt good," said Harris after the race. "That was my fastest time ever." Multitalented 14-year-old Mary Anne Russell from Franklin, Tenn., just outside Nashville placed third in the race in 20:08 providing a crooked number of the top Continued on page 31 I don't play g01f, but [ can be as caddy as the next person MARAUDING MENNON- ITE - Floyd Landis' devout par- ents cycled off to church in Ephra- da, Pa. while their son raced off to France. And as television crews interviewed the parents, who iron- ically don't own a television, Floyd was sipping champagne over his victory loop around the cobblestones of the Champs-Ely- sees as the winner of the Tour de France. Floyd has a wrecked hip and needs it replaced and he is one dog of a competitor but you get the feeling his parents believe he veered off the beaten path and is now "cobblestoning and cham- pagning" himself over the treach- erous Highway 61 to salvation.

I didn't see any Buicks in Ire- land mainly because all the Buick- looking drivers were riding tour buses and screaming at the driver to use his turn signals. TOP 50 LIST - Never forget that I'm a writer who doesn't know what he's writing about. I constructed of list of 10 male and female Cape Henlopen athletes and asked readers to write in sug- gestions so we can expand each list to 50. Then we can throw peo- ple out and get back to 20 and be TIGER TIME - I don't play golf and don't write about it, al- though I can be as caddy as the next person. But I'll watch Tiger Woods and I'm intrigued when he's on his game. I hope Tiger wins more majors and I hope he breaks the record of 18 champi- onships set by the Golden Bear Jack Nicklaus. lem with doing that at the local level is I am recognized on the street and I'll start getting booed in public. Actually, that is good for business. I will give you my 10 males followed by suggestions I"(e received by email: Randy Johnson. Tyrone Gibbs, CMrles Turner, Purnell Ayers, Henry White, Jared Hill, Hertford Gbbs, Willie Savage, Tony Zig- mm and Rickey Pitts. GaUggestions included Matt viet, Mark Moore, Lance ite, Jimmy Alllen, Tyler Whit- man, Vince Daniels, John Bishop, Enory Howell, Bruce Barrett, Tmy Sheppard, Perry Walls, T1 taddeus Shockley, Steve Welsh, CI rose Koruemann and Joe Cahill. Keep in mind that what an ath- le e did after high school has no ix aring on making this list. I am or the top -0 list both at my gram- m tr school and high school as the most annoying student in a gener- ation. I called and told them I'm a lot better now, but they said they dQn't care. "the top-10 female list is Lisa Jfferson, Amanda Warrington, Llsa Williams, Katie Delcampo, Kathryn DiVilbiss, Carrie Lingo, Dane Travis, Adele Mears, Lily Mapp and Zelda Sheppard.

Kenny has been on the dean's list every semester at Delaware and recently won the William P. Frank Memorial $5,000 scholar- ship for his efforts in journalism. Kenny is currently interning at Comcast Sports Net and the "Philadelphia City Paper." He is living in a rowhouse in South Philly with his grandpar- ents and Gene Harris, his grandfa- ther, is working at Citizen's Bank Stadium selling hot dogs or eating them, or maybe he's an usher. But if you go to a game and you know him then you see him. Tust your- self, it is him. MAXINE NOT EVEN A TEEN - Maxine Fluharty of Bea- con Middle School is just 12 years old, but talk to anyone who has coached her, from field hockey to lacrosse to track, and they use words like "awesome," "incredi- ble" and "unbelievable." Maxine just returned from the National Futures Tournament in at the begin- ning of the process. And the girl is 12! Maxine just kept surviving the elimination process and got to play with the best FLUHARTY incoming col- lege freshman in the country. More on Maxine and the other lo- cal hockey girls in a later story. SNIPPETS - Coach Kathleen Fluharty's summer hockey camp will open on Monday, July 31. Coach KK can be reached at 947- 4670.
