I have adjusted the times for the first heat which ran the extra
lap by subtracting 25 seconds from each time. The problem was that some
of the timers had stopped their watches at the "correct" spot and so not
all times had to be adjusted. I think it's pretty close to correct now.|
Foot Tools Open Girls 1500:Bumped up from Junior at
the last minute, Kate Harrison of Birchmount belied her inexperience by taking charge
of the race from the start and leading the entire distance to win in 4:50.02.
Late in the race with Percival, who had run the 600, fading, Tallman
made an impressive charge to close to within - well- check the pic. Impressive
but too late. In her defense, she may have thought there was an extra lap - this being

Alistair Wyatt Open Boys 1500: With his photo on the
home page of this web site for more than a week, Ryan Finn probably felt some pressure
to perform well. If so, he didn't show it, calmly taking charge in the middle of the
race and pulling away to win in 4:08.61. The story of the race was Thousand Island's
Matt Leeder. Bumped up from Junior at the last minute, [notice a trend here?] he held
off Quinte's Joe Brunsting with a gutsy performance to finish second in 4:10.59. His
coach had said, "Get him in if you can - he needs a tough race like this". Not any more.|
Matt millard of TISS was 4th behind Brunsting. This photo is from the morning heats and shows Brunsting leading with Millard(left) and Leeder in pursuit. You can enlarge the pic by clicking it.
