Cape runners compete The Vikings of Cape traveled to the annual Salisbury State Invita- tional last Wednesday afternoon and competed against a large field of 10 teams on the girls' side and 14 teams on the boys' side, all from the lower Delaware and Del- marva area. The girls of Cape fin- ished second in the team standings with 95 points behind champion Caesar Rodney who scoi'ed 39 points. The Cape girls were led by sophomore runner Danielle Guerin in seventh place with a time of 20:48. The Cape boys fin- ished in sixth place and were led by Dan Heacock with a time of 18:05. Cape was without the use of sophomore Jen Hicks who was out because to illness. "I was very pleased with the ef- tbrt the girls put forth at Salisbury even though we missed our num- ber one runner," commented Coach Pat Pollock. "On the boys side, we continue to improve and get better and it's nice to see the program go in the right direction." Salisbury Invitational Cape Girls Results: 7. Danielle Guerin- 20:48; 8.

Bryan Travis- 20:33 Salesianum Invitational On Saturday, Oct. 4, the Vikings traveled north to the Sale- sianum Invitational for one of the finest meets on the East Coast and a look at most of the top teams in Delaware. The Vikings ran in the Varsity B Class and finished a dis- appointing 8th place out of 16 teams in the race, while the boys were 16th overall out of 18 teams. The Viking girls surprisingly dropped five spots from 3rdto 8th in this week's state rankings in the News Journal, but remain unde- feated in the Henlopen Confer- ence. Cape Coach Pat Pollock took the blame for the Viking perfor- mance and declined to release places and .times for hi s runners. RUNNING blame mysell or lack oi preparation with the team and get- ting them ready to handle a hilly course," commented Coach Pol- lock. "The fact that lower Delaware does not have hills is not an excuse for inadequate train- ing. The team put forth their best effort on the day, but were not properly prepared for the race. I take the blame." Sussex Central meet On Tuesday, Oct. 7, the Vikings traveled to the Stockley Center in Georgetown to take on the Golden Knights of Sussex Central. The Cape girls were led by second- place finisher Cole Pavlik in 21 : 15 as she led her team to victo- ry. The Cape boys also won the meet and were led by youngster Brian Kniepp in 18:08.
