Mr. Sandman 2001
by Randall L. Whipkey

At the Sand Sculpture Tournament in Ocean City last week, teams of silicone artists competed for the title of Mr. Sandman 2001. Each of the teams that finished in 1st-5th place in the judging was sponsored by a different local business, one by Bad Bubby's BBQ, and was led by a veteran sand sculptor, one by Chad. Given the description of the event below, you should be able to determine the 1st-5th place standings in the tournament: the theme of each sculpture, its sponsor, and its team leader's full name (one surname is Patty).

1. The team led by Rick finished higher in the judging than the sculptors of the fire-breathing Dragonflight, who placed one position ahead of the Waters-led team in the event.
2. The amazing Manhattan skyline of New York, New York wasn't the top 5 entry of Tom and his partners.
3. Castoria, who isn't Art, and his teammates didn't enter the 3x-lifesize sculpture of Huckleberry Finn.
4. Team leaders Greg and Moulder were members of the Mr. Sandman 2000 sand sculpting team.
5. In the final judging, the Jolly Roger Mini-Golf work of art placed one position behind New York, New York, which finished immediately behind the sculpture created by Shaver and his team.
6. Blast Off to Mars and the Mooney's Amusement Pier sculpture drew crowds to the Inlet Beach area during the event.
7. The Crisfield Crab House team wasn't the one Rick headed.
8. The sculpture by the Kites by Katie team finished one place ahead of Art and his co-sculptors' entry, which was judged one position higher than the Great White and its wide-open jaws.
9. Huckleberry Finn won a higher prize than the scupture by the team Greg led.
10. Shaver and the Kites by Katie team leader are Ocean City policemen.
11. Waters and his team didn't sculpt Great White.
12. The Crisfield Crab House-sponsored team, which wasn't led by Castoria, didn't create the 2nd-place sculpture.
