Lady Seahawks win Tues. meet in Easton; boys finish second

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

Decatur Coach Jody Stigler Decatur Coach Jody Stigler(Sept. 28, 2012) The Stephen Decatur girls cross country team won Tuesday’s seven-school meet hosted by the Easton Warriors.

The Lady Seahawks scored 24 points. Mardela finished second with 53 points.

Decatur senior Lauren Buckman led the field of female runners, crossing the finish line first (22:59). Also contributing in the victory were juniors Chloe Faunt- LeRoy (third, 23:55), Alex Tushup (fourth, 24:03) and Alex Saunders (fifth, 24:04) and sophomore Jordan Klebe (11th, 25:50).

“We did pretty well. I would have liked for us to go against Kent Island, because they’re a strong team,” said Decatur Coach Jody Stigler. Kent Island’s bus arrived late and the girls missed their race, so they ran with the boys. “Our times were pretty good, but there’s still room to improve.”

The Decatur boys’ team finished in second place (80 points) behind Kent Island


The Seahawks’ top five athletes to cross the finish line were seniors Nick Molitor (seventh, 18:34) and Dan Winters (12th, 18:57), sophomore Jake Gaddis (19th, 19:42) and juniors Kevin Herbert (22nd, 19:55) and John Niedfeldt (25th, 20:09).

“We did pretty well. Kent Island’s a tough team,” Stigler said. “Easton (third, 91 points) and Parkside (fifth, 95 points) beat us in the first meet, so for us to come in second is pretty good. It shows we’re improving.”

Decatur will compete on Wednesday in the annual Tidewater Fall Classic at Winter Place Park in Salisbury, where more than two-dozen public and private schools from Maryland and Delaware will be represented.
