Brock Coach of Year ...

Delaware Tech head baseball coach Curtis Brock has received high praise from his peers with the 2001 American Baseball Coaches Association's Coach of the Year Award for junior colleges.

Brock, who guided the Roadrunners to the 2001 National Junior College Athletic Association Division II World Series championship in June, was named coach of the year for Division II at the ABCA's National Convention in Orlando on Friday, Jan. 4.

Brock has compiled a 303-142 record in 13 years at Delaware Tech and has never had a losing record.

Biden Gets Challenger ...

Dover businessman Raymond Clatworthy announced his decision to challenge five-time incumbent Joe Biden for one of Delaware's two U.S. Senate seats on Monday, Jan. 7.

The 57-year-old Republican lost to Biden in 1996. He said he would begin his campaign for the November 2002 election in earnest later in the year.

During his announcement, Clatworthy cited the war on terrorism and the economy as the country's two greatest challenges.

He criticized Washington officials for not allowing military officials to fight the war on terrorism without questioning and specifically criticized Biden for his comments about the bombing of Afghanistan.

Clatworthy also called for less red tape and more tax cuts for American citizens and small businesses.

Cordrey Honored ...

Sussex Central High School senior John C. Cordrey has become the first student from his school to be named to the Senate Youth Scholarsip Program in Washington, D.C.

The school's student council vice president and honor society president, Cordrey won a $2,000 scholarship and a week's stay in the nation's capital to meet with U.S. Senate leaders, Supreme Court Justices, and Pentagon and State Department officials.

Two representatives from schools in each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense are chosen.

Applicants must hold an elected office in their school's student government. They are also judged on their grades, SAT scores and community involvement.

Finalists from each school then take a 2 1/2-hour exam on American and Constitutional history and politics and are interviewed by a panel of Department of Education officials.

Cordrey is considering Swarthmore College in Widener, Pa., William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va., and the University of Delaware for a major in political science.
