Butzin and O'Linn take the Daylily City 5K

On 7 May 2016 Dan Butzin couldn't catch Ryan Kelly on the trails of Hahira, Georgia and had to settle for second place in the Julep Jog 5K. Two weeks later, though, things were different on the streets of Adel, Georgia at the seventh annual Daylily City 5K. There, even though Kelly had won each of the last three Daylily City titles, Butzin finished 30 meters ahead of him for the win, 18:06 to 18:13. Riley O'Linn, a rising junior on the Valwood School cross country team, captured the women's crown, coming in eighth overall in 22:27.


Behind the Butzin-Kelly duel, Nick Rosatti of Hahira placed third in 19:07. Joseph Todd Miles of Valdosta, Georgia took top master runner honors, coming in seventh overall in 22:10.


Debbie Green of Valdosta was the first woman master, coming in second behind Riley O'Linn in the women's standings and tenth overall in 22:41. Cyndi Lamica of Adel was the third female finisher and fifteenth overall in 23:33.


66 athletes finished the 2016 Daylily City 5K. Timing and finish line service for the race were provided by A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta, Georgia.
