Blazers Rice and Helton race to victory in Valdosta

It was a good day to be a Blazer at the 2010 Valdosta, Georgia Memorial Day 5K road race. Led by Chris Rice's 16:50 win, runners from the Valdosta State University men's cross-country team took four of the first six places. Jordan Helton of the VSU women's cross-country team took top women's honors, finishing 16th overall in 21:38. It seemed almost rude, seeing as how the race was directed by Blazer cross-country coach Todd Smoot.

Chris Rice successfully defended his 2009 title at the second annual event, once again finishing one spot ahead of Blazer teammate Austin McDonald (17:40). The top master runner was Scot Gardner of Naylor, Georgia, third overall in 18:04. The fastest woman master was Valdosta's Sylvia Ellis, who ran 27:41 to finish 43rd. The 8:00am race started and finished near the old S. L. Mason school at Baytree Road and Azalea Drive. 79 athletes finished the race.
