Hicks leads Vikings The Cape Henlopen girls fin- ished second in the "B" Division at the Lake Forest Cross Country Invitational last weekend to clear- ly become the surprise team of the year. The Vikings, who could also be called the youngsters or baby boomers, feature a top three trio of freshmen 13 and 14 year olds. Number one runner Jennifer Hicks proved she can run with the state's elite with a fourth place finish in 21:01, while Danielle Guerin put together her best race of the year to finish in 13th place in 22:02. The final freshman trio was Cole Pavlik in 19th place with a time of 22:23. Sophomore Tessa Shoup ran in the number four po- sition for the Vikings with a 20th place finish in 22:24, while Senior Natasha Jones rounded out the top five with a time of 24:20 for 55th place. The interesting item about the Vikings is that their top five girls have never run "high school" cross country before this year. "We need to try to get our fifth, sixth, and seventh runners closer RUNNING t0the top four to have a chance at beating Ursuline," said Hicks. When asked about her feeling before the large high school meet, Hicks pointed toward her youth experience as helping her at not being nervous. "I kept thinking that this race was not that big and I really was not nervous at all," said Hicks. "I know that standing on the starting line at last year's AAU Nationals with 300 gifts who were all real good definitely helped Cole and myself when we lined up at Lake Forest." Sophomore Sara Popovich (24:28) and Senior Captain Katie Bandekow(25:23) made up the rest of the varsity team, while Sara Wolak led the Vikings in the ju- nior varsity race in 25:59. Senior Eric Beaman ran his best race of the year to finish 19th in a season best time of 18:48, while David Barlow ran 19:50. Don Becker(20:41), Mark Red- den(21:30), Rich Welsh(22:17), Robert Read(22:35), and Eric Conlon(23:39) rounded out the Vikings. Brian Kniepp led the Vikings in the junior varsity race in 22:55. "I thought we ran real re- spectable against the best teams in the state," said Coach Pat Pollock. "We had a lot of surprises today and several season best perfor- mances that hopefully will help us in the future. We're just taking one meet at a time and looking forward to the future." On Tuesday afternoon the girls, who are now fairly ranked seventh in the state, improved their record to 4-0 with a 15-48 sweeping of the Sussex Tech Ravens. Hicks led the way in 20i35 for the three mile course, while Guer- tin was second in 21:20. Jones took third in 21:25, followed by Pavlik in 21:27. Shoup was fifth in 21:29, while Popovich ran 23:20. Lauren Fuqua rounded out the top seven in 23:28. A rather easy meet for the Vikings, however the best thing that came out of it was that the top five gap was an impressive 54 seconds. The boys lost a close one to Sussex Tech by a score of 26-30 to drop to 0-4 on the year. Bea- men was fourth in the race in 18:18, followed by Barlow in 18:31. Haxton took sixth in 18:36, while Becker ran 19:16 in seventh place. Spicer turned in 19:25, while Redden was 10th ir 19:42. The Vikings will be in action Thursday, Oct. 3 at the Salisbury Invitational. SEASHORE STRIDER CROSS COUNTRY A group of 11 members of the Seashore Strider Youth Cross Country team competed in the ju- nior high version of the Lake For- est Cross Country Invitational last Saturday in Felton. The Strid- ers were led by seventh grader Brit- tany Morris who took a third place medal out of 52 girls in a NOWAKOWS. time of 9:07 for the 1.3 mile course. Sixth grader Tiffany Melendez finished 18th in 9:49, while Clare Nowakowski ran 9:49 for 22nd place. Fifth grader Betsy Hicks ran 10:06 to finish 29th, while third grader Bethany Pavlik was 32nd in 10:31. Gina D'Amico rounded out the gifts in 47th place with a time of 12:00. Georgetown's John Hearn, age 12, led the Striders in the boys action with the team's best time of 8:14 to finish in 1 lth place among 68 runners in the field. Matt RIGGIN Riggin put to- gether an outstanding race to fin- ish in 12th place with a time of 8:17, while Chris Martin ran 9:09 to finish 34th. Dean Popovich turned in a time of 9:14 to finish 39th, while fourth grader Evan Mock ran 9:15 to fin- ish in 40th place... The Striders wish a Happy B- Day to teammate Betsy Hicks...over & out... Fishing Continued from page 73 trout and a few stripers were taken at night on eels and plugs and striper and trout fishing will get better as itcools and drives out some of the baitfish currently con- gregated in the inlet, according to R & R Sports Center. Croaker and big sea bass are be- ing caught at the B Buoy and Old Grounds.
