CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, October 17 - October 23, 1997 - 85 Eric Payne, Brittany Morris win Domestic Violence 5K race The second annual Race Against Domestic Violence, 5K run and 1 mile walk, were held last Sunday morning in beautiful running conditions at Grove Park in Rehoboth. The event, which at- tracted less than 20 participants in its opening year, was able to more than double its numbers with a turnout of 44 runners and 10 walkers, making the event a suc- cess. The event was c6-sponsored by the Domestic Violence Coordinat- ing Council of Delaware and the Delaware Federation of Business & Professional Women's Clubs (BPW) and was put on in conjunc- tion with a similar event in New Castle County. Local runner and Lake Forest graduate Eric Payne easily won the Overall Male title in a time of 17:32, while 13-yearoid eighth- grader Brittany Morris of the Seashore Striders won the Overall Female title in a new personal record time of 21:07. John Weiss of Camden won the Male Master group in 18:05 for second overall, while Sharon Heidel won the Fe- male Master group in 24:28 for 23rd overall. The youngest two age groups produced the greatest surprises as the young Striders swept all three places on the boys and girls side while setting several personal records along the way. The Lewes and Rehoboth area is one of the few places in the country that the road race age groups are broken up for the 9 and under and 10-13 age group. Several other race directors have often asked me why I go so low in the age groups for "kids that can barely finish a 5K?" I simply invite them to one of my events and after they see nine-year-old PJ Melendez aver- age just over seven minutes per mile, or 12-year-old sister Tiffany average just under seven minutes a mile for the 5K - they under- stand. Most people cannot relate to a nine-year-old girl running a 22 minute 5K, or a 13-year-old boy breaking 20 minutes; howev- er, it happens in Lewes and Re- hoboth thanks to the backing of Lee Masser and Masser Systems and the Strider Youth Running Program.

Gina RUNNING last year's conference runner-up was dealt a tougher case last week as she stubbed her toe in a freak accident at her house. Coach Pol- lock was still not sure of the out- come of the injury on Wednesday evening, but stated that he thought it was a severe sprain that could be a possible fracture. "We hope to get her back by the conference and state meet where I still believe we will be a force in the state meet for girls." Tim Bamforth D'Amico, 17, 23:22 14-19: I. Steven Hargis, 10, 21:45; 2.

The Viking girls won the county, Henlopen Conference, and took second in the state highlighting last season. With the season winding down, Coach Pollock hopes to be in the hunt again this season. "I am pleased that the team is working harder and they are re- sponding well to the harder work- outs," said Coach Pollock. "The kids gave a good effort at the UD Invitational on atough course and came back to run well at Smyrna.. I felt the boys were physically ready, but Smyrna was more pre- pared mentally and ended up the better team on the day. As far as the girls, the top three (Danieile, Cole and Tessa) ran excellent races and were only I 1 seconds apart. It hurts not having our number one runner (see below note), but it seems that those three have pushed themselves harder and have become better runners."
