What: The Seashore Strider program is an organized youth cross country-running team in existance since 1990. Youths from age 7 to 18 have participated in training and competition in local and regional events. Since 1990, 471 youth athletes have qualified to participate at the Regional Championships, with 236 runners representing the Seashore Striders and the Cape Region at the National Championships.

Participating in running events helps area youths build physical fitness, discipline, teamwork, and a strong sense of self-esteem. Daily, we read about over weight and sedentary life styles that impact the health of today's youth. These young runners are hopefully building lifelong healthy habits.

Where: The Seashore Strider program has a home base directly across from the Cape Henlopen State Park lookout tower and meet twice a week from 4 - 5:30 p.m. for practice beginning in early September.

Info: For information on the program, contact Coach Tim Bamforth at 302-644-8952 or e-mail

2008 Seashore Striders place 3 in top 10 at national championships

The local Seashore Strider Youth Team closed out its 19th season with a trip to the Jesse Owens Museum and Indian Grounds in Decatur, Ala., and the AAU National Cross Coun-try Championships. Nineteen athletes made the trip south along with 31 other relatives, friends and coaches for support.

For the second year in a row, the team placed three runners in the top 10 earning All- American status as 8- year- old third- grader Logan Shuttleworth placed sec-ond overall running 2,000 meters in a personal best of 7: 59 fin-ishing only three seconds behind the national champ out of Colorado.

"Logan ran a great race push-ing the pace back and forth with the leaders and still had the lead with under a quarter to go," said coach Rick Brokaw. " Nothing is guaranteed at this level and you never know who is going to rise to the top at a national meet.
Logan did what she needed to do and battled until the end."

Ten-year- old Jack Ashby fin-ished fifth this time around in a personal best time of 11: 04 for the 3,000- meter bantam dis-tance, while 9- year old Ben Bam-forth finished ninth overall in a time of 11: 27.

All three Strider athletes, Shuttleworth, Ashby and Bam-forth, placed in the top three at last month's regionals at Killens Pond in Felton.

Four other Strider runners fin-ished in the top 30, while just missing the first team All­Amer-ican medal, but grabbing the second team as Jake Bamforth moved up four places to 26th in 11: 38 in the midget boys race, while Zoe Kelly was 27th in 13: 19 in the bantam girls race. Alec Hochrein was 29th in 12: 27 in the bantam boys, while Dillon Moc-ci was 30th in 12: 29, also in the bantam boys race.

Sarah Rambo led the bantam girls ninth place team with a 33rd- place finish in 13: 02, a per-sonal best. Riley Shields was 42nd in 13: 16, while first- year runner Madison Caldwell was 42nd in 14: 18 and Katie Klabe was 49th in a personal best of 13: 27. Korinne LeMaire placed 51st in 16: 04 in the sub- bantam girls race, while Maddy Bada was also 51st in the bantam girls race in 13: 31.

Luke DiGuglielmo was also 51st in 11: 30 in the midget boys race, while Grace Brokaw was 60th in 14: 28, while Jack Kelly was 63rd in 11: 50 in the midget boys race. Dallas DiGuglielmo was 66th in a personal best of 15: 06 in the bantam girls race, while Karissa LeMaire was 79th in 17: 53 for 4,000 meters in the sub- youth division. Wrapping up the Striders was Cole Anderson who placed 82nd in 12: 47 in the midget boys race.

The Bantam girls team fin-ished with a team record of 29 seconds between their No. 1 run-ner Sarah Rambo and their No. 5 runner Maddy Bada which is an impressive top- five gap on any cross country team.
