CAPE GAZETI'E, Friday, November 8 - November 14, 1996- 69 Monlqeo Oamth photo The Cape and Caesar Rodney girls eroim-eountry teams mmd st the starting line before the gun for their conference championship showdown. Cape won by 10 peinto. Viking harrier women top CR for Henlopen Crown By Tim Bamforth The Cape Henlopen girls lost to Caesar Rodney back on Oct. 15 by only four points, which decided the dual meet conference champi- onship. The Vikings were visibly disappointed; however, they quickly got themselves together, did their traditional cartwheels, and looked ahead to the confer- ence championships that were held this past Saturday at Killen's Pond. The Cape girls kept that four point defeat in the back of their minds and lined up on the starting line for a re-match with the tough Rider squad. This time around there were again cart- wheels and plenty of happy look- ing Vikings as Cape knocked off the Riders by a 60-70 score to capture the team championship. "To win the county meet and then the conference meet is a great tribute to the girls and our sea- son," said second year Coach Pat Pollock, who was named Confer- ence Coach of the Year by his peers. "Winning the Coach of the Year award was a great honor, but it is a reflection of what my kids have done for me this season. They worked hard and all put together a good team effort today. We knew that our top three could run well against C.R., but our number four and five really came through in the last half mile of the race, mak- ing it a great team effort." The Viking freshman threesome of Jen Hicks, Danielle Guerin and Cole Pavlik all finished in the top seven and earned a place on the first team all-conference squad. Hicks finished third with her best Killen's Pond time of 20:24, while Guerin was fifth in 21:11. Pavlik finished sixth in a time of 21:14 for her best race of the season. "I was a little disappointed that I couldn't run with the Lake Forest and Milford girl, but when I found out that we had won, the disap- pointment was gone," said Hicks. "We're hoping that we can run well again against Ursuline, and individually I'm hoping that I can stay closer to the front and have a better race." Number four runner senior Natasha Jones went to work on the Riders in the final half mile to finish 20th in a time of 22:20, while Sara Popovich followed Jones to finish in 26th place in 22:52. Katie Bandekow finished in 24:04, while Sarah Wolak fin- ished in 24:19 to round out the Vikings. Ursuline Academy, which last week won the New Castle County meet, will come into the state championship meet with a loaded varsity team and most likely two loaded buses of supporters to help cheer them to victory. The Vikings will have all they can handle against the Red Raiders, however several people counted them out last weekend against the Riders and I wouldn't count out the Cape blue and gold until the cartwheels are over.
