Anna Busby gets a Women's Distance Fest win in the Indianhead hills

Anna BusbyOn Saturday morning, 20 September 2014, Anna Busby of Capital City Runners flashed across the finish line of a 5K race in Indianhead Acres, first in 20:45. A minute later Roger Schmidt, another Capital City Runners athlete, crossed the same finish line in 16:45, also first. In Tallahassee, that could only happen at Gulf Winds Track Club's Women's Distance Festival, a race where the women start in their own wave five minutes before the men's wave starts.


At Tallahassee's 33rd annual Women's Distance Festival 5K, the women started just after 8:00 AM, heading north on East Indianhead Drive. 600 meters up the road the runners turned west onto Apakin Nene. Three FSU students led the race at that first corner--Bridget Reid, Claire Igoe, and Julia Corley. Just a few steps behind them was Anna Busby. Corley fell off the pace early, but Busby continued to stalk Reid and Igoe. At about the three kilometer mark, Busby pulled even with the leaders.


Tallahassee Women's Distance Festival 5K"I was cruising behind those girls and I kept expecting them to move up more," said Busby. "I finally decided, 'okay, I'm just going to go.'"


A kilometer from the finish, Busby went. Taking the lead, she never got far ahead of Reid and Igoe, but it was far enough. Busby won the race in 20:45, while Reid edged Igoe for second, 20:47 to 20:48. Julia Corley held off Laura McDermott to take fourth place, 21:38 to 21:41.


I just wanted to go sub 21:00 today and see where I was at," said Busby.


Mission accomplished.


Roger SchmidtTiffany Roddenberry was sixth in the women's standings, running 21:44. Roger Schmidt finished immediately after Roddenberry. Even though he had started five minutes behind the women's wave, Schmidt had overtaken 97 of the 103 female finishers, taking the men's title in 16:45. Nate Kaiser set the early pace for the men. Schmidt followed him out, but soon took over. By late in the race Schmidt was only running against the clock.


"I made a strong push in front of Hartsfield School before the last downhill," said Schmidt. "Then around the last corner I really slammed it home."


It was Schmidt's second win in two weeks; he had also won the Sickle Cell 5K the previous Saturday. Nate Kaiser was runner-up in 17:06, and Peter Van Brussel placed third in 18:03. "Marathon Jack" McDermott was fourth in 18:34. Wakulla High cross-country runner Lane Williams finished fifth in 18:41.


Portions of the Women's Distance Festival proceeds were earmarked for the Children's Center at TMH and the Florida State women's cross-country team.

Tavaris King and Lawton Campbell can't be caught at Everhart

Lawton Campbell and Alyson ChurchillOn Thursday morning, 18 September 2014, the 27th annual Everhart Invitational started out with a familiar script. As at the first two meets of Leon County Schools' 2014 middle school cross-country season, Deerlake's Lawton Campbell won the girls' two-mile race. Similarly, the Swift Creek girls' won the team title. As at the previous week's Montford Invitational, Tavaris King won the two-mile boys' race. But when the team scores had been tallied, the Fairview boys had knocked off the defending champions from Swift Creek, 59 to 87.


It was nearly 11:00 AM on a warm, sunny morning when the girls' race started. Lawton Campbell of Deerlake was out front early with Alyson Churchill close behind. The two were only a step apart when they flashed by the half mile. Deerlake's Emily Molen followed in third, with Emily Culley of Montford on her heels. Little changed up front during the first half of the race, but early in the second mile Campbell started to pull away. But Churchill gave up ground only reluctantly; Campbell built up a significant lead but not a comfortable one. It was a winning lead, though, as Campbell crossed the line first in 12:41. It was the fastest winning time in the girls' race at Everhart since 2008 when another Deerlake runner, Cece Williams, set the girls' course record of 11:56. Alyson Churchill was second in 12:49. Molen placed third in 13:02. Swift Creek's Megan Churchill overtook Emily Culley late in the race to take fourth, 13:04 to 13:05. Each of the top five athletes ran faster than the winners of the previous five Everhart races, 2009 to 2013.


Alyson Churchill and Megan Churchill were joined in the top ten by Swift Creek's Chase Merrick (7th, 13:29) and Emma Romuald (9th, 14:32). When McIver Levy (13th, 14:54) crossed the finish line for Swift Creek, the Wolves had a winning team score, edging Deerlake for the title 35 to 37. The narrow win was Swift Creek's eighth in a row, a streak that dates back to 2012. The last team to beat Swift Creek was Montford at the 2012 Everhart Invitational. This time around the Montford girls were third with 87 points.

Tavaris KingAt the 2014 season opener at Fort Braden, the Fairview boys placed second, four points behind the winners from Swift Creek. The following week at the Mustang Stampede, Fairview placed third, 15 points back of Swift Creek.


"We'll get there," said Fairview coach Everett Blakely.


At the third meet of the season, the Everhart Invitational, the Fairview Falcons got there, scoring 59 points to Swift Creek's 67 for the win. Montford took third with 72 points.


Tavaris King of Griffin was in control of the race almost from the very first. After the dust had settled from the start, you could see King out front. By the time he passed the mile mark in under six minutes, King had a ten-second lead. That lead grew to over half a minute by the time King crossed the line a winner in 12:04. Griffin's Darry Wilson was second in 12:36. Behind Wilson, Alxander Gilliam of Fairview had moved up through the field during the race to take third in 12:39. Ky Peltier of Swift Creek placed fourth in 12:47. Montford's AJ Hodges kicked past Yunus Kovankaya of Swift Creek for fifth, 12:51 to 12:52.


Originally scheduled for 24 September 2014 as the fourth meet of the season, the Swift Creek Invitational has been canceled. After a week off, the schools will meet one last time on 1 October 2014 in the Leon County School Cross-Country Championship at Apalachee Regional Park.

Jordan Lance and Haleigh Martin run truly fast at Bay Invitational

Haleigh Martin"Bay County's Only True Cross Country Course!"


That was the breathless billing for the 13th annual Bay High Cross-Country Invitational. I'm not saying that it's wrong, but it's not a discussion that I'm going to get into. Arguing about "true cross country" is a lot like arguing about what make a "true American"--both debates are liable to get ugly enough that the bouncer is going to have to ask you to leave. I will say that calling Harder Park "Bay County's Only True Cross Country Course" seems like a slap in the face to Mosley High's Dolphin Dash, the North Bay Haven High Invitational, Arnold High's Marlin Mad Dash, and Rutherford's Ram Run.


Besides, everyone knows that the best cross-country venue in Florida is the Championship Course in Leon County's Apalachee Regional Park (ARPXC).


"True Cross Country" or not, competition opened at 8:30 AM on Saturday morning, 13 September 2014, with the girls' 5K race. The defending champion, Bleckley County junior Ellen Powell, was on the starting line, but the first athlete to cross the finish line was Wakulla sophomore Haleigh Martin. Martin ran 20:54 to pick up her second win of the season, a week after winning Wakulla's opener at the Cougar Cross Country Challenge. Choctawhatchee sophomores Shawna Lindsay and Shelby Lindsay picked up the next two places, both athletes clocked in 21:07. A few feet back, Arnold junior Michaela Ashley finished fourth in 21:08.


Niceville's first finisher was sophomore Claire Crist, fifth in 21:27. Before another two minutes had passed, Crist was joined by the next four Niceville runners--senior Nicole Escoffier (7th, 21:35), sophomore Mackenzie Shinnick (8th, 21:43), frosh Hannah Schneidewind (11th, 22:00), and frosh Claudia Howes (13th, 22:50)--giving the Eagles 44 points. However, Choctawhatchee also had 44 points after the Lindsays and sophomore Julia Davis (9th, 21:50), junior Maddie Borcyk (12th, 22:50), and junior Paige Borcyk (18th, 23:28) had finished for the Indians. There are no ties in high school cross country, though--"Ties in team scoring shall be resolved by comparing the sixth-place finishers from the tying teams. The team with the best sixth place finisher shall prevail." At the 2014 Bay Invitational that was Niceville. The Eagles' sixth runner frosh Ciara Coger (15th, 23:13) trumped Choctawhatchee's sixth, junior Shelby Linafelter (28th, 25:17), giving Niceville the win.


Always be nice to your sixth runner.


Bleckley County, girls champs at the 2013 Invitational, placed third in the twelve-team field with 82 points.

The boys' 5K followed. Arnold senior Jordan Lance won the race in 17:28, crossing the finish line with a lead of well over 100 meters. A traffic jam followed Lance into the finish chute, with Mosley junior Ethan Mines (2nd, 17:53), Rickards junior Solomon Stevens (3rd, 17:54), Niceville junior Jason Nodjomian (4th, 17:57), and Bleckley County sophomore Dayton Cannon (5th, 17:59) all coming in within a few seconds of one another. Cannon was joined in the top ten by Bleckley County juniors Austin Cook (7th, 18:06) and Logan Bridges (8th, 18:08). After sophomore Carl Ellis Corley (12th, 18:22) and junior Taylor Harrell (16th, 18:40) were in for Bleckley County, the defending champs had 48 points and no need for a tie-breaker. Placing on top of the sixteen-team field, the Royals took another team title home to Cochran, Georgia. Niceville was second with 79 points and Wakulla third with 105.

Schmidt and O'Neill snatch Sickle Cell 5K wins

2014 Run For Sickle Cell 5KSince 1982, Tallahassee's Sickle Cell Foundation has held the annual Run For Sickle Cell road race. It took a few years to settle on a course and a distance; some of the earliest races were four miles. But by 1987 the Foundation had settled on a 5K route through the Jake Gaither Neighborhood, even going so far as to have the course USATF certified as accurate (USATF #FL12057EBM). You’d think that over all those years, during four different decades and two different centuries, just about every athlete in Tallahassee would have run the Sickle Cell 5K. It was a new race for Roger Schmidt of Capital City Runners, however.


“I’ve run in this area before, back when I was at Florida State,” said Schmidt. “I’ve never run this particular route before, but I heard it was fast.”


Roger SchmidtIn Schmidt’s defense, the Run For Sickle Cell may have been around for over 30 years, but he’s only been alive for 23 of those. Whether or not the course is fast, Schmidt certainly was fast on Saturday morning, 13 September 2014, when he won the 33rd annual Sickle Cell 5K in 16:48, finishing almost 400 meters ahead of the next runner.


The race started on Bragg Drive a casual 10 or 15 minutes after the scheduled starting time of 8:30 AM. At about 700 meters the runners turned onto Wahnish Way with five athletes out in front of the rest of the field--Roger Schmidt, FAMU professor Geb Kiros, Maclay School cross-country runner George Escobar, Bryce Vokus, and Peter Van Brussel. Early in the third kilometer, coming down the hill on Pasco Street, Schmidt had broken away, opening a gap of nearly 100 meters on Van Brussel. Schmidt’s lead only grew during the second half of the race as he went on to win in 16:48. Van Brussel and Vokus came in together, second and third, both clocked in 18:06. Geb Kiros was the top master runner in the race, fourth overall in 18:43. Escobar was fifth in 18:55, and another Maclay School student, 12-year-old Johnny McClure, was sixth in 19:11.


Paula O'NeillUnlike Roger Schmidt, Paula O’Neill had run the Sickle Cell 5K before. “This race was where I won the master’s division for the first time,” said the Griffin Middle School teacher.


This time around, O’Neill was not just the first woman master, she was the first woman in the race, placing 17th overall in 22:18. Master runner Katie Clark had been half a minute behind O’Neill midway through the Sickle Cell 5K, but during the second half of the race she started to nibble away at O’Neill’s lead. The gap was too wide to close, though, and Clark had to settle for the women’s runner-up spot, 18th overall in 22:31. Jane Skalski was third in the women's standings, 19th overall in 22:48.


Eventually the streets were clear of runners, and parking was restored for Jake Gaither Golf Course. When it was over, more than 300 athletes had run or walked the 33rd annual Sickle Cell 5K.


“I’m glad I came,” said race winner Roger Schmidt. Many of the other 300-plus Sickle Cell participants felt the same way.

Swift Creek rides again at the Mustang Stampede

Lawton CampbellLike at the season opener at Fort Braden a week earlier, Swift Creek swept the team titles at the second meet of Leon County Schools' middle school cross-country season, Montford's Mustang Stampede, on 10 September 2014. In the girls' two-mile, Deerlake's Lawton Campbell picked up her second win of the season, edging Alyson Churchill of Swift Creek 12:46 to 12:50. Travis King of Griffin got his first victory, winning the boys' two-mile in 12:14. 276 athletes competed in the Stampede.


The girls' race started at 6:00 PM on the Montford Middle School athletic fields, northeast of Tallahassee. Seconds after the start, Lawton Campbell was in the lead. By half a mile into the race Campbell was four seconds ahead of the next runner, Montford's Emily Culley, with Swift Creek's Alyson Churchill another three seconds back. Alyson Churchill overtook Culley, then so did Swift Creek's Megan Churchill, but they couldn't catch Campbell. Campbell went on to take first in 12:46, with Alyson Churchill a close second in 12:50. Megan Churchill was third in 13:01, and Culley fourth in 13:03. The Swift Creek Wolves also got top ten finishes from Chase Merrick (5th, 13:04) and Emma Romuald (9th, 13:49). McIver Levy (15th, 14:59) was the Wolves' fifth and final scorer, giving Swift Creek 34 points and the team title. Deerlake also put four runners in the top ten, but was second with 39 points. The hosting Montford Mustangs were third with 80 points.

Leaders in the 2014 Mustang Stampede boys' raceHalf a mile into the boys two-mile race, Cobb's Antonio Davis was setting the pace, closely followed Fairview runners Charles Hruda and Al Gilliam. Griffin's Tavaris King trailed in fourth, and Bryant McKnight of Montford was even farther back. But by the second half of the race Hruda and Gilliam were gone from the lead pack, which was down to three athletes--Davis, King, and McKnight. With just over half a mile to go, the three entered the woods running nearly together. By the time they came out of the trees, King had broken out in front of McKnight and Davis was nowhere in sight. King ran home to win in 12:14, while McKnight held off a charge from Darryl Wilson of Griffin to take second, both runners clocked in 12:23. Coming out of the woods Ky Peltier of Swift Creek kicked past Deerlake's Samuel Mountain to take fourth 12:31 to 12:33. Peltier's late-race move had consequences--Swift Creek took the team title, but only by a single point, edging Montford 66 to 67. Fairview placed third with 81 points, just ahead of fourth-place Deerlake's 84.


The Everhart Invitational follows the Mustang Stampede on Leon County Schools' 2014 middle school cross country schedule. Slated for Thursday morning, 18 September 2014, this will be the 27th annual running of the Everhart Invitational, making it the oldest middle school meet in Tallahassee.
