Results, Bernheim Forest, 17 October 09
Cooler weather has finally arrived in Kentucky, and with it comes the beauty of leaves as they change from their summer green to their fall yellows and reds. The scenery has never been better than it was for the OLOU meet held at Bernheim Forest on 17 October, 2009. The rains that have been with us for the last few months finally let up, and the sun even showed it's face late in the day. All in all, a beautiful day for a run through the woods.
Rich Mazzoli and Jim Carter put on a GREAT meet, and as you can see by the extensive results listed below, the attendance was superb. We had several JROTC units that made the trip, bringing lots of energetic cadets. Thanks to all the JROTC instructors who gave of their time to give their cadets the opportunity to participate in our meet. We saw lots of potential in the cadets, and hope to see them at all our future meets. Now for the results:
Red Open: OLOU's Dan Mattingly led the way around a very good Red Course in a time of 57:07. He was pushed and pulled around the course by OCIN's Mike Minium, who finished in 60:08.
Green Open: It was nice to see Kevin Huff back at one of our meets. A former cadet from Warren East High School, Kevin cruised around the Green Course in 1:12:53. Burr Paul was a close second in 1:35:33.
Brown Open: Jeff and Mary Hamilton smoked around the Brown Course in 54:35.
Orange Open: Carson Torpey led the way around the Orange Course in a time of 1:21:00, followed by Catherine Shelton of Apollo High School in a respectable 1:33:38. Catherine is a teacher at Apollo and attends our meets as the female chaperon for Col Paul. Rather than sit on the bus and twiddle her thumbs, she decided to give orienteering a try. She's doing GREAT. GO GIRL!!
Yellow Open: Paul Vice was quickest around the Yellow Course in a time of 1:15:33. The Blair family followed in 1:48:00.
Sprint Open: We had several folks run the Sprint after running their regular course. Koos Hagg was seen leaving a rooster tail of water as he blasted around the Sprint in a very quick 8:23! Mike Minium gave him a run for his money in 13:34.
