Atholton's Graham Bazell outdueled Joey Thompson of Howard; Kristen Malloy of Hereford scored another big victory; and No. 8 Wilde Lake won the boys title in yesterday's Meade Stampede at Fort Meade.

Bazell and Thompson battled throughout the race, but the Atholton runner was able to hang on for the win in 15:53.36. Thompson (16:02.12) is one of the area's better outdoor distance runners and quickly has adjusted to cross country in his first season.

Wilde Lake rolled to the team title with 91 points, easily outdistancing No. 9 Severna Park (143). Jonathan Shaw (fourth) and Derek Lange (fifth) led the Wildecats to the victory. Severna Park edged C. Milton Wright by two points for second place overall.

Malloy set a course record at Hereford in the Bull Run last month and won once more (17:50.97) while running against a tough field. She was pushed in the first part of the race by Churchill's Louise Hannallah. But Hannallah took second in 17:57.15.

The Churchill girls won the team title while No. 2 C.M. Wright finished second. Churchill easily captured that title with 53 points as the Mustangs earned 86. No. 3 Hereford was next (105) followed by top-ranked Severna Park (139).
