Harriers from Michigan Fare Very Well at Coffee O Five

by by Ken Garnter

The oppressive heat and humidity of this Friday night took its toll on some of the Friday night runners. Seventeen-year-old Adam Sprangel of Jackson, Michigan loped through the course in just over 28 minutes without breaking that much of a sweat. With no one to follow and having no idea where the course went, the young speedster was forced to seek out the painted directional arrows in the road. He not only made it through the course without getting lost but he also turned in one of the fastest times run on the course for his age group. The heat didnıt slow Lynn Holmgren either. She raced through the course in just under 33 minutes to take first in the womenıs race. Jordan Clark, who also hails from Jackson, Michigan, finished two minutes later to take second for the women. Laura Hutchinson edged Wendy Stafford for third in the womenıs race. Susan Colburn-Nevier of Seattle, Washington took fifth for the women. Steve Ruane was third for the men for the second week in a row. He led a contingent of four runners from the U.S. Geological Survey who were running the race. They may start their own track club. Steve Roe was fourth for the men. Fifty-year-old Tor Clark gave it all he had en route to his fifth place finish in just over 32 minutes. It was one of the top fifty and over times turned in for some time, but the veteran runner paid his dues afterwards with a mild case of heat stroke. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile road race and 2.5 mile walk which is held every Friday night at Town Hall Square. There is no entry fee for this self-timed event and all runners and walkers are welcome to participate.
