23rd Annual GSH Summer Sizzler Series - 8K

Springfield, MA, July 10, 2002

Results courtesy of the Greater Springfield Harriers

Lombardi and L'Esperance!

    What a difference a week can make!  The heat and humidity being replaced by a taste of fall with little or no humidity and start time temperature in the upper 60's.  The weather brought with it one of the bigger fields of the year.
    The race turned out to be a duel between eventual winner Ron Lombardi (27:29) and Assumption College runner Jason Lukasiewicz (27:34).  Greg Waryasz (28:45) rounded out the top three.
    Carol L'Esperance (33:20) made her debut for this season series count, she cruised to a win in the women's division and in doing so set an age group record.  Erin Lyman (34:49) and Krishna Lonanecker rounded out the top three.
    Talking of records, Art Roberts (31:27), was not only good enough for sixth place but also set a new age record as well.  Like Carol it was Arts debut run in this seasons series.
    The 'Cool Under Fire' award must go to race director Sharon Mikaelian as circumstances contrived to try and make this night a difficult one.  Quick thinking, short circuited the impending problems, and at the conclusion of the race all runners agreed that the new light weight mobile results board was a big hit.  It may become a permanent feature!
