Weekend Results - 9/20/09

Weekend Results The Fleet Feet Racing Team members had another stellar weekend on the local road racing scene. Though none of the events were held in Huntsville, there were three 5km races within a short drive from here and as always, our team travels well.
The featured event this weekend was the 2nd Annual Care Center 5km held in New Hope, AL. Though Josh Whitehead ran away with the overall win, Shane O'Neill ran a strong 2nd, as he clocked a personal best of 17:00. He was followed by Donald Bowman, who took 3rd overall and top Male Master. Ovella Jesse was top Masters Woman, 4th Woman overall and rounded out the top 20. This was a great showing for the team in a large field of 300+ finishers Official Results
In Hartselle, Eric Schotz took top honors at the Depot Days 5k, just as predicted. Schotz is coming on strong on the road racing scene, after mostly running ultra distance events this spring. No Official Results Available

On the men's side, in an odd turn of events with course markings toward the end of the race, Dink Taylor came out on top after trailing team mate Rob Youngren for most of the race. James Falcon was 8th place overall and earned a 2nd place age group award. Official Results
