This Just In ...
The site's been quiet for a time as the news crew has been running anywhere but near a keyboard. So, let's start catching up: The Challenge Series standings are updated with Band on the Run results from Sept. 10. Kendall Townsley continued undefeated among the men, and Melanie Mathews stepped up to lead the ladies. In the next local race, Kendall's Southside rival and fellow 4A all-state runner, Chris Lyons, took the latest title Sept. 24 at the BGMC 5K. Jackie Griffin captured the women's crown there.
In the state Grand Prix, Michelle Huff has clinched the age group title for women 45-49 with eight first places and two third-place finishes. Bruce Oakley is undefeated in M55-59, but is clinging to third place with fewer races than the leaders. Links to recent results are available in the box at right.
