The Cape boys' track team won both sides of the April 29 double dual meet on the track at Smyrna, defeating the Eagles 86-52 and Lake Forest 82-55.

But their 7-0 streak came to an end May 1 on the track at Caesar Rodney, where the Vikings lost to CR 94-52 and Dover 93.5-52.5.

In the April 29 meet, Austin MacElrevey was the boys' only double winner, coming from behind capturing the 1,600-meter run in 4:41 and the 3,200 in 10:47. The boys also won the 400-, 800- and 1,600-meter relays. Maurice Mills, back in action, was on two winning relays and won the long jump into a stiff wind with a jump of 19-feet-9-inches.

The Cape girls improved to 5-2 in dual meets, beating Lake Forest 79-66 and losing to Smyrna 105-40.

"Smyrna is loaded right now, and we’re not there, just don’t have the depth like previous years," coach George Pepper said.

Cape had winning performances in the 1,600 by Madison MacElrevey, high jump Megan Hart at 4-10, and the 400-meter relay.
