That makes two! FLRC Open and Vets women win again in PGXC race #2

The second PGXC 2021 race took place on a new course at Everest Park in Auburn under gloriously sunny skies. And talk about a race for the FLRC women, who took home two titles again!

Thanks to photographer Jamie Love, we have lots of great race photos. If anyone on the @pgxc-men or @pgxc-women teams also took pictures at the race, please upload them there.

Team Results

The top three FLRC Open women—Jenny Berkowitz, Sarah Codd, and Kathleen Kanaley—finished just 4 seconds apart, with Sarah and Kathleen separated by just 0.1 seconds. They were fourth, fifth, and sixth overall in the race behind Cornell coach Isabella Dobson (running unattached, but we’re recruiting!) and two women from Buffalo’s Checkers squad (including ex-Ithacan Jenny Selig, just 3 seconds in front of Jenny Berkowitz). But Checkers wasn’t able to field a full five-woman team, so Dobson and the Checkers runners fell out of the team scoring, giving us 1-2-3. With Molly Doruska in 11th and Amanda Lockett in 15th, we ended up with a cumulative score of 32, which put us 2 points ahead of the Syracuse Track Club. Sarah Ridenour, Amalia Skilton, and Ashley Brown rounded out the team this week.

The FLRC Vets team also repeated their winning ways, with Caitlin Loehr taking second overall, Brenda Osovski taking third, and Sandy Gregorich in 6th. Their 11 points easily outpaced GVH’s 16-point total. Kim Jackson and Anne Shakespeare (running down from Super Vets) filled out the team.

Although FLRC was able to field only those two winning teams this week, the High Noon men had a few decent finishes:

  • High Noon Open men: 3rd (down from 2nd without our top two runners)
  • High Noon Vets men: 2nd (up from 4th last week, with a 4-5-6 top three places)
  • High Noon Super Vets men: 4th (up from 5th last week)

Full women’s team results and men’s team results are now available.
