Despite claiming the top individual honors, the Alumni could not hold off the tight packing Current Team as both the Boys and Girls 2010 squads prevailed at the 5th running of this now classic event. Once again, alumni from as far back as 1987 put on the "red-white-black" classic jersey, and raced over the tough 2 mile MV Invite course. Former coaches Knutsen, Huntsman and Borowski came to cheer on their former runners and give encouragement to the current team members as well.
Top finishers were:
Boys: 1st Mike Roderick (09), 2nd Harry Nunns (08), 3rd Junior Byron Kilian.
Girls: 1st Brittany Rezowalli (05), 2nd Sr Jill Anderson, 3rd Soph Megan Nesbit
Many notable performaces today, including 1987 Alumni Mike Abrams with his solid 6th place overall finish, and 1988 Alumni Chris Leavell finishing 17th while pushing his 20 month old son in a baby jogger - up the Eliminator no less! Brittany Rezolwalli made it a perfect 4 for 4 by winning the girls race again. She has won each time she's entered.
Alumni MVP awards went to Mike Abrams and Kimmy Abood, with the MV top rookie award going to frosh Erin Herting for her impressive finish today.
While the race was initial focus, the social time before, during and after the run was the real reason most of the alumni showed up today!
Results can be found in the handout below.
Mark your calendars for the 6th Annual run next summer!
