.... Sports & Outdoors 24 TUESDAY, AUGUST 13 - THURSDAY, AUGUST 15, 2013 , Cape Gazette District 3 Big League All-Stars win World Series Cape's Tiara Dully and Alexis Burger shine on national TV By Dave Frederick. fredman@capegazette.com Sussex County locals could see from a world away that the Dis- trict 3 Big League all-star team with an automatic entry into the World Series as the host team would be a contender for the title. The team was stacked with veatile frontline players, many of whom could pitch and play multiple positions and knock the cover off the baseball. The biggest surprise after a week of play "down to Roxana" was that the Senior League Dis- trict 3 team didn't complete the daily double, but the team, most- ly from Laurel, was upset by Italy in the semifinals 1-0. In the Big League finals, Dela- ware, playing on ESPN, showed the nation what was up versus Puerto Rico, breaking up a 5-5 tie game by scoring six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning on a two-run double by Kaitlyn Slater and a two-run homer from winning pitcher Mykala Steele to capture the World Champion- ship 11-6.

Black Girls Run adds color and characters to Dewey race lack Girls Run - I know Black Girls Run. I've seen the T-shirts, and if I had a double X one in my closet, Fd yell at the cat, "Get offl" and wear it because that would be cool. The BGR "preserve the sexy" movement was founded in 2009 by Toni Carey and Ashley Hicks to lower the percentage of Afro-American women with chronic diseases associated with an unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle. The girls who ran last Saturday in the Dewey Highway One 5K or 10K are all from Delaware. I found it an incorrect assump- tion thatall black girls who run are members of the Black Girls Run movement. I also discov- ered that not all BGR members run in all races, and some bike to offer support to others. I do know that fun and inspiration were in the house of harriers (runners). There was harmony and diversity, and veteran run- ners seemed pleased that a new group had chosen the sport of running as a path to fitness. Perplexed and befuddled - The Big League Delaware District 3 softball team won the World Series over Puerto Rico 11-6 down to Roxana. The game was broadcast on ESPN. And really I thought the District 3 Senior League team would be right there with them but they got stymied by Italy 1-0 in the semi- finals. There were 10 teams in Continued on page 25 DAVE FREDERICK PHOTOS MEMBERS OF THE I)ELAWARE CHAPTER OF BLACK GIRLS RUN gather in Dewey for a 5K and 1OK. In back (I-r) are Lisa Johnson, Kelly S.
