Ten years of Springtime 10K winners, 2007 to 2016

While we wait for Saturday morning, 1 April 2017, when we'll learn who the overall winners of Gulf Winds Track Club's 42nd annual Springtime 10K, I thought it might be interesting to look back on some of the past winners.


I chose the races for the ten years from 2007 to 2016. Those are the most recent years, of course, but those were also the years when I took photos of Springtime. And this was originally supposed to be a slideshow. But somewhere along the line, I decided that although I probably could eventually turn my photos into a video with a nice Beethoven soundtrack, I wouldn't be done with the work till several months after the race. So I abandoned the project. But what should I do with all the photos that I had unearthed from my archives?


So I did this. It was always supposed to be a little bit more than a list of the past champions and their pictures, but the photo captions kept trying to grow into a history of the race. As much as I would like to write a history of the last decade of Springtime, that would have taken way more time that I had to spend. I hope you'll enjoy the details that did manage to sneak into the photo captions.


So here it is.
Ten years of Springtime 10K winners, 2007 - 2016

2007 Men's Champion, Matt Dobson
33:27

Wearing bib number 588, Matt Dobson starts up Lafayette Street
near the end of the second kilometer of the 2007 Springtime 10K. Although Dobson hailed from Jay, Florida he was no stranger to the Capital City's roads, having already won titles at Gulf Winds Track Club's Tallahassee Turkey Trot 15K in 2004 and 2006, as well as the Springtime 10K in 1994 and 1995.
2007 Women's Champion, Lara Shaw
37:23

In 2007 the Springtime 10K still finished with a one-kilometer circuit of the greenspace bounded by Lafayette, Meridian, Gaines, and Suwannee Streets. Here, Lara Shaw has just started that final lap. Placing fourteenth overall, Shaw would finish at the top of the women's standings, with Lisa Johnson second in 38:03 and Sheryl Rosen third in 38:52. Remember those names.
2008 Men's Champion Joey Zins
31:59

A graduate assistant on Florida State's track and cross-country coaching staff, Joey Zins won the 33rd annual Springtime 10K by almost 200 meters. Here he makes the climb up Lafayette Street early in the race, accompanied by Luke Beevor (2nd, 32:33) and Tripp Southerland (3rd, 34:02).
2008 Women's Champion, Sarah Docter-Williams
38:16

In this photo, Sarah Docter-Williams starts the final kilometer of the 2008 race, where she picked up her fourth of four Springtime 10K titles. I won't say it was her last, because she's still running. Half a minute back, Lisa Johnson was the women's runner-up.
2009 Men's Champion, David Altmaier
35:00

300 meters from the finish line and 100 meters ahead of his nearest challenger, David Altmaier makes the turn from Gaines Street onto the Suwannee Street homestretch of the 2009 Springtime 10K.
2009 Women's Champion, Lisa Johnson
38:34


With just over 300 meters to go, women's winner Lisa Johnson is driving toward the finish line of the 2009 Springtime 10K. Finishing seventeenth overall, Johnson was followed in the women's standings by runner-up Seeley Gutierrez (31st, 40:49) and third-place Sheryl Rosen (34th, 41:20).
2010 Men's Champion, Chris Lake
33:09

Taking advantage of excellent running weather, Chris Lake cruised the Springtime 10K in 33:09, winning the race for the first time. Nate Kaiser was second in 33:35 and Stephen Cox third in 33:44.
2010 Women's Champion, Sheryl Rosen
38:23

After a few times of featuring high but not at the top of the women's standings at the Springtime 10K, Sheryl Rosen won the women's title at the race in 2010. It was her first Springtime title, but it wouldn't be her last.
2011 Men's Champion, Chris Lake
32:34

Outrunning three-time Canadian Olympian Kevin Sullivan (2nd, 32:45), Chris Lake won a second-straight Springtime 10K in 2011.
2011 Women's Champions, Pasca Cheruiyot
34:52

Florida State alumna Pasca Cheruiyot posted the fifth-fastest women's time in the first 35 years of the Springtime 10K to win the 2011 race. Not even her FSU coach, Karen Harvey (18th, 37:33) could keep up with her, and had to settle for the women's runner-up spot. 2010 women's champ Sheryl Rosen (36th, 39:03) was third.
2012 Men's Champion, Chris Lake
33:29

Construction on Cascades Park led to some extreme course changes in 2012, with the race starting south on Monroe Street. In the photo, Chris Lake is speeding down a hill on Gaines Street with about half a kilometer left in the race. Lake picked up his third straight Springtime 10K title that day. Over 200 meters back Stephen Cox was runner-up in 34:18.
2012 Women's Champion, Lindsay Zeiler
37:33

Florida State graduate assistant track coach Lindsay Zeiler with half a kilomteter to go in the 2012 Springtime 10K. For the first two kilometers of the race it was Zeiler and 2010 women's champion Sheryl Rosen in front of the women's field, but after that it was all Zeiler. Rosen (13th, 38:35) took second in the women's competition.
2013 Men's Champion, Kevin Sullivan
31:42

Here, near the halfway point of the 2013 Springtime 10K, Stan Linton shadows leader Kevin Sullivan. Sullivan lost his shadow soon afterwards, going on to win the race by 250 meters. Linton, second in 32:32, would go on to compete for Florida State University.
2013 Women's Champion, Stefanie Slekis
36:05

Running in Capital City Runners colors, Stefanie Slekis took the women's 10K title at the 38th annual Springtime race. 2010 champ Sheryl Rosen was runner-up on the women's side, placing 18th overall in 37:11.
2014 Men's Champion, Kevin Sullivan
32:03

On rain-soaked streets, Kevin Sullivan won his second Springtime 10K title, this time by more than 400 meters. Three-time Springtime winner Chris Lake was second in 33:37.
2014 Women's Champion, Seeley Gutierrez
38:09


Remember Seeley Gutierrez, women's runner-up in the 2009 race? Gutierrez returned in 2014 to claim the Springtime 10K women's title. In spite of the wet conditions, it was her fastest Springtime performance yet.

2015 Men's Champion, Stephen Cox
32:59

Stephen Cox figured in the top ten of quite a few runnings of the Springtime 10K, but in 2015 he won the race after chasing down three-time champion Chris Lake. Lake was runner-up in 33:10.
2015 Women's Champion, Sheryl Rosen
37:30

Finishing 200 meters ahead of the next woman, Sheryl Rosen picked up her second Springtime 10K women's title in the 2015 race.
2016 Men's Champion, Roger Schmidt
34:06

Here's a photo of Nate Kaiser in pursuit of Springtime 10K leader Roger Schmidt with a kilometer to go in the 2016 race. Schmidt couldn't be caught that morning, though, and won the 41st annual Springtime 10K. Kaiser was second in 34:16.
2016 Women's Champion, Adriana Piekarewicz
39:09

Adriana Piekarewicz took the lead in the women's field two-and-a-half kilometers into the 2016 Springtime 10K and never had to look back after that. The Florida State alumna went on to win the women's title by more than 300 meters. Two-time Springtime champ Sheryl Rosen took second in 40:30 and Alyson Churchill was third in 40:38.

Track time in Tallahassee again for Leon County middle schools

At Lincoln High School's Jimmy Everett Track on Wednesday afternoon, 29 March 2017, track and field had returned to Tallahassee, Florida for the middle school students of Leon County Schools. True, there had been a relay meet at Chiles High the previous week, but this was the first real track meet of the year. It was right there in the name of the event--"Leon County Schools Middle School Track Meet #1." Number one. How could you doubt that it was the first?

Jimmy Everett Track
Lincoln High School's Jimmy Everett Track

Competition opened with the girls' 1600 meter run. Swift Creek Middle School eighth-grader Lexi Gray won the four-lap event, posting a 6:08.18 in the first of two sections of the race. Leah Holman of Deerlake, a sixth-grader, ran 6:16.29 behind Gray in section one to take second. Swift Creek sixth-grader Paige Churchill ran 6:19.64 in the second section, placing third.


The boys' 1600 followed. Jordan Guice, a Fairview eighth-grader, opened his season with a win, running 5:15.32 in section two of the race. Deerlake seventh-grader Zackary Levy was second, running 5:23.83 in section one. Also racing in section one, Cobb eighth-grader Campbell Hart placed third in 5:26.30.


After the 1600 the hurdle crew went to work, setting up the barriers for the girls 100-meter hurdles. Montford eighth-grader Eva Cotton posted a 19.33 in the second section to win the event. Back on the track after the 1600, Paige Churchill took second for Swift Creek, running 20.21 in section two. Kately Kopacz of Deerlake, a sixth-grader, ran 20.97 in section one to take third.


Montford eighth-grader Jalen Herring scored a big win in the boys' 100-meter hurdles, going 14.48 in section three of that event. Trailing Herring in section three, eighth-grader Zakyle Bush of Fairview took second in 16.20. Swift Creek's Alex Silvaroli went 16.65 in section two for third.


The action remained on the straightaway as the hurdles were cleared from the track for the girls' 100-meter dash. Khori Lewis of Fairview placed first in section three and won the event in 13.77. Raa eighth-grader and cross-country runner Amaya Jones took second, running 13.89 in section three. Griffin sixth-grader and Deerlake eighth-grader Keoni Knight tied for third, Thomas running 13.92 in section one and Knight posting the same time in section three.


There were four sections of the boys' 100-meter dash. Swift Creek eighth-grader Galen Johnson raced in the fourth section and won the event, clocking 11.51. Also competing in section four, Deerlake eighth-grader Savion Knight took section in 12.10. Seventh-grader Chase Gillespie took third for Montford, running 12.15 in section two.


Seventh-grader Jasmine Raynor went 65.87 in the girls' 400-meter dash to get the win for Fairview. Gabrielle O'Sullivan of Deerlake took second in the event, running 67.87. Montford seventh-grader Lauren Wilkey placed third with a 68.28.


Kaseem Ibraheem-Washington won the boys' 400 for Cobb with a 56.05. Swift Creek eighth-grader Rajauhn Sancho was runner-up in 57.26, and Fairview eighth-grader Darrien Lawrence grabbed third in 58.35.


The Cobb girls won the 4 x 100-meter relay, carrying the baton around the track in 53.41. The Raa girls were second in the relay with a 54.35, and the Fairview girls took third in 54.65.


Montford edged Nims in the boys' 4 x 100-meter relay, 49.09 to 49.16. Inches behind that battle, the Fairview boys were third in 49.96.


The final distance event of the meet was the 800-meter run. In the girls' event Fairview seventh-grader Jocelyn Foust ran a winning 2:43.06. Foust brought two years of cross-country running experience to the race, and so did Montford seventh-graderr Ella Grace Hodges, runner-up in the 800 with a 2:49.10. After her second-place finish in the 1600, Leah Holman of Deerlake inched past Cobb seventh-grader Emma Chesire to take third, 2:50.82 to 2:50.90.


Eighth-grader Amarie Moore, number one on the Raa cross-country squad during most of the 2016 season, won the boys' 800-meter run in 2:19.34. Swift Creek eighth-grader David Monroe, another cross-country veteran, placed second in 2:24.44. Trevon Riles, a Nims eighth-grader, took third in 2:26.68.


Returning to the sprints, the next event was the 200-meter dash. In the girls' race, Fairview eighth-grader Miahna Harden left the field far behind, winning the race in 25.85. Griffin seventh-grader Anaya Thompson took second in 28.78. Keoni Knight of Deerlake added a third place 200 finish to her third place 100 finish, running 28.92 in the 200.


In the boys' race, Swift Creek's Galen Johnson had a successful 100-200 double, winning the latter race in 22.95. Montford eighth-grader Dominic Larry was second in the boys' 200 in 24.53, and J'lan Lamb of Griffin took third in 25.39.


The final relay as well as the final event on the track was the 4 x 400. Fairview edged Griffin for the top spot in the girls' relay, 4:41.78 to 4.43.32. The Montford girls were third in 4:54.75.


On the boys' side, Nims went 4:06.23 in the first section, but Raa answered with a 4:05.11 in the second section, taking first. The Fairview boys, also running in the second section of the relay, took third in 4:14.36.


Not all the action was on the track. In the girls' high jump, 100-meter-dash champion Khori Lewis leaped 4' 10" to add a win in the field events to her honors. Leah Holman, who had placed in the 1600 and the 800, was second with a mark of 4' 6". Nims eighth-grader Ja'Mecia Thomas ran for Nims in the 200, but she scored points for her school in the high jump, clearing 4' 4".


Nims eighth-grader Toby Carr-McFadden tied for first with Darrien Lawrence of Fairview in the boys' high jump, both athletes going 5' 2". Eighth-graders Martavious Williams of Raa and David Monroe of Swift Creek each cleared 5' 0", tying for third.


Nims eighth-grader Zahnevia Polyarpe narrowly prevailed over Nims seventh-grader Kezia Young in the girls shot put, 34' 6-1/2" to34' 5". Raa eighth-grader Aolani Toussaint was third with a mark of 28' 7".


Nims eighth-grader X'Zavion Michael won the boys shot with a toss of 45' 2". Cobb eighth-grader Khamari Brown was second at 42' 2", and Xavier Young of Raa sent the sphere 41' 4-3/4" for third.


Girls' 200-meter winner Miahna Harden also won the long jump for Fairview, leaping 15' 4". Another Fairview athlete, sixth-grader Alexandria Kennedy, went 14' 2" for second in the girls' long jump after placing fifth in the 800 with a 2:52.50. Raa eighth-grader Naveyh Frost jumped 14' 1" for third.


Savion Knight may have been runner-up in the boys' 100-meter dash, but the Deerlake athlete was first in the boys' long jump with a mark of 19' 9". Nims eighth-grader Jordan Nelloms, fifth in the hundred, was second in the long jump at 18' 4". Rajauhn Sancho of Swift Creek, the runner-up in the boys' 400, was third in the long jump at 18' 1".


Swift Creek won the boys' team title, scoring 83-1/2 points. The Nims boys were second with 73-1/2 and Fairview third with 65. The Fairview girls won their division with 103 points, while Deerlake was second in the girls' standings with 73 and Montford third with 55-1/2.
