ASU athletes Smith and Duncan achieve ant honors at Ashburn

At some point villages in Georgia started running low on festival themes. Agricultural products (peaches, peanuts, mayhaws, watermelons) had been exhausted, as had farm animals (swine, mules, honeybees), wildlife (buzzards, rattlesnakes), and flowers (azaleas, roses). So they turned to insect pests. Camilla has Gnat Days, and Ashburn has the Fire Ant Festival. And of course you can't have a festival without a parade, a queen, and a road race. Especially not without a road race!


So Ashburn hosted another annual edition of the Fire Ant Festival 5K road race on Saturday morning, 26 March 2011. Albany State University athletes Robert Smith and Sherrard Thomas grabbed the top two places in the race, Smith winning in 17:52 and Thomas picking up second with an 18:13. Kurt Heninger of Fitzgerald, Georgia was the next runner in after the pair from ASU, running 18:55. Heninger was followed by Mitchell Sinyard of Hawkinsville, who edged out Leesburg's Bruce Austin for top master runner honors, 19:22 to 19:36.


Another Albany State track team member helped herself to honors in the women's division. Ashley-Marie Duncan, a freshman distance runner at ASU, was the fastest female in the Fire Ant 5K, placing eighth overall in 20:46. Cordele's Heidi Taylor (14th, 22:35) and Penelope Williams (19th, 24:18) of TyTy were the next two women in, followed by the first woman master, Tifton's Gina Purvis (22nd, 25:16).


Nearly 100 runners finished the race, proceeds of which went to benefit the local Child Abuse Council.

Broome and Harris win Legacy

Starting from Legacy Park in Albany, Georgia, 148 runners set out to race around the streets of Albany on Saturday, 26 March 2011. It was the Legacy Run For Life 5K, and the first to the finish line was Trey Broome of Leesburg, Georgia, who covered the course in 17:35, just five seconds ahead of the runner-up, Bill Fricks of Albany. The top master runner in the race was Albany's Lucius Burch, who finished seventh overall in 18:38.


The fastest woman of the morning was Stephanie Harris of Dawson, Georgia; Harris ran 20:38 to place 16th overall. Just eight seconds behind Harris, Albany's Cindy Dominey was the second woman finisher and the top woman master; her 20:46 was good enough to put her 20th in the overall standings. Dominey was racing less than five weeks after finishing the "26.2 With Donna" National Breast Cancer Marathon in Jacksonville, and not quite three weeks after completing the Snickers® Half Marathon in Albany. Her performance certainly didn't suffer by being in a much shorter race.


An inaugural event hosted by Sherwood Baptist Church, the race was a benefit for the Alpha Pregnancy Center.
