Hough and Reichenbach grab Sizzler wins on St George

Jack RedwingUnited States Air Force Academy cadet Brandon Hough raced to a 17:06 5K at the 13th annual St George Island Summer Sizzler on Saturday evening, 25 June 2011. Panama City's Hough amassed a margin of victory of more than 200 meters over runner-up Jack Redwing of Tallahassee, who covered the course in 17:51. Third place went to Tallahassee's Joel Piotrowski, who won his second straight master runner title in two weeks, having also earned that honor at Monticello's Melon Run the previous Saturday. Stanley Linton of Crawfordville improved his performance nearly a minute and a half from the previous year's Sizzler, running 18:01, but didn't improve on his 2010 finish position, placing an identical fourth.
Nicole Reichenbach

In contrast to the men's race, Nicole Reichenbach and Samantha Fortunas battled for the women's title all the way to the finish line, where Reichenbach narrowly prevailed 22:44 to 22:48. Another Tallahassee runner, Angela Wable, took the third women's spot in 23:01. The fourth woman and top woman master was Kristen Corderman of Niceville, Florida, who turned in a 23:09.


218 athletes finished the 5K race, reportedly a record field for the 13th annual event. The St George Island Summer Sizzler is a benefit for the Franklin County Humane Society.
