FLRC U19 and Super Vets teams notch wins at PGXC #2 2022

Again, sorry for the slow recap, @pgxc-flrc and @pgxc-high-noon—too many cats to juggle. Despite some pre-race rain, our second race at Everest Park in Auburn was again a success with two team wins and a number of individuals bringing home chocolate for top-three age group placements.

Full individual and team results are available on RunSignup. With Jamie Love away, I captured some photos of the race. Apologies in advance for the action shots that are fuzzy—even an iPhone 14 Pro can’t compete with Jamie’s professional DSLR camera.

We had two team wins in this race! The FLRC U19 team finally got some competition and dispensed with it handily, with Banyan Love, Oliver Lambert, Ben Lambert, and newcomer Rahmon Daily producing a perfect score to beat a Syracuse Track Club team.

With all their top runners in play, the FLRC Super Vets Women’s team of Gill Haines-Sharp, Sandy Gregorich, Lorrie Tily, Anne Shakespeare, and Ruth Sproul (with Deb Bliss in the photo) tallied just 13 points to beat strong strong Checkers AC (19 points) and Syracuse Track Club (20 points) teams to bring home our first beer of the year.

As far as our other teams went, we took a lot of third- and fourth-place finishes, with the High Noon Masters men only a few points away from a win.


  • FLRC Open Women: 3rd, behind STC and Checkers, but ahead of the Auburn Pulsars
  • FLRC Masters Women: 3rd, behind Checkers and STC, but ahead of the Greater Buffalo Track Club
  • FLRC Vets Women: 3rd, behind GVH and Checkers, but ahead of GBTC

High Noon

  • High Noon Open Men: 4th, behind Checkers, STC A, and GVH, but ahead of the Pulsars, STC B, and GBTC
  • High Noon Masters Men: 2nd, just 4 points behind STC but beating out Checkers and the Pulsars
  • High Noon Vets Men: 4th, behind GVH, Checkers, and STC, but ahead of GBTC
  • High Noon Super Vets Men: 4th, behind STC A, GVH A, and Checkers, but still in front of GVH B and STC B.

Individually, we once again brought home some chocolate, with Banyan Love taking the overall win in the U19 category with a run that was 64 seconds faster than last year on this course and the third-fastest High Noon time for the day. Also on the men’s side, Oliver Lambert was third in U19, and Joel Leff was second in M70+. On the women’s side, our standouts from the first race repeated, with Caitlin Loehr taking second in W50-59, Gill Haines-Sharp second in W60-69, Deb Bliss first in W70+, and Ruth Sproul second in W70+.

Our next race is in Akron Falls, near Buffalo, on October 9th. Sign up soon if you want to join us, and mark your calendars for our home meet at TC3 on October 30th.
