A glowing performance for Rosatti and Pezent in Adel

blue and green glow sticksIt's not that you don't expect to see prep athletes racing on a Friday evening in the spring, but you do expect to see them competing on the track. Nevertheless, Cook High junior Nick Rosatti was racing on the streets of Adel, Georgia, on Friday evening, 27 March 2015, where he won the inaugural Glow For Alpha Rho 5K. Rosatti finished the first-year race nearly half a kilometer ahead of the next athlete, posting 18:58 for the 3.1-mile run. Cook Middle School cross-country runner Cody Pezent, 14, was also absent from the track that evening, taking second in 20:47. Norman Park, Georgia, schoolboy Case Gregory took third in 22:29.


Adel's Angela Pezent was the first woman in the race as well as the fastest master runner, placing eighth overall in 26:45. The top male master runner in the race was Brad Holt of Adel; Holt was ninth overall in 27:31.


87 athletes finished the Glow For Alpha Row 5K, with another 27 completing an 800-meter fun run. The race was hosted by the Alpha Rho Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa. Proceeds went to a scholarship fund for a 2015 graduate of Cook High School in Adel. Timing and finish line services were provided by A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta, Georgia.
