HomeStreet Miss Madison wins Seattle race amid controversy

Special to The Trimble Banner
Seattle---Jimmy Shane in the U-1 Miss HomeStreet/Miss Madison and Andrew Tate in the U-9 Les Schwab Tires battled side by side through the final lap of a wild Albert Lee Appliance Cup winner-take-all final heat on Lake Washington. Tate, the winner of last year’s Seattle race, managed to pass Shane on the last lap and again in the final stretch, but it turned out to be all for naught. Tate was assessed a one-minute penalty for dislodging a buoy before the start.
