Just 13 hours after and 40 miles north of his Friday night victory in a Lake Park, Georgia, 5K race, Ryan Kelly was competing on Saturday morning in the streets of Adel, Georgia. It was a successful double for the Valdosta High cross country coach as he won the sixth annual Daylily City 5K in 17:50, breaking his own 2014 course record of 17:58. On the women's side, Amber Elam took the women's title in 21:29, just missing Alice Smoot's event record of 21:28, set in the 2011 race.


Rick Mazurkiewicz was the top master runner in the race, finishing second overall in 19:31. Cody Pezent placed third in 21:08. Elam's top women's time of 21:29 placed her fourth overall. Debbie Green of Valdosta was the women's runner-up and the top woman master in the race; Green came in sixth overall in 22:28. Houston, Texas, master runner Judy Alexander was third in the women's standings, finishing ninth overall in 23:45.
