Tallahassee Community College Eagles 2017 Cross-Country Schedule

The 2017 cross-country schedule for the Tallahassee Community College Eagles is here!


This is the second season of competition for TCC's harriers. This year the Eagles add a men's cross-country team, currently the only NJCAA men's program in Florida. Also new this year is another rival for the Lady Eagles--Florida State College at Jacksonville will field a women's cross-country team during the 2017 season. That makes five Florida schools competing in NJCAA cross-country; Chipola, Pasco-Hernano State, and South Florida State are the other three programs.


As in 2016, the Eagles will open the season will the Cougar Cross-Country Challenge at Phipps Park in Tallahassee. That meet is slated for Friday evening, 25 August 2017, this year. The Cougar Challenge is followed by a new event on the calendar, the Big Bend Cross-Country Invitational on Saturday morning, 2 September 2017. At the Invitational the Eagles get to preview Tallahassee's Apalachee Regional Park Championship Cross-Country Course, which will be the site of the NJCAA Region 8 Women's Cross-Country Championship on Saturday morning, 28 October 2017. TCC's harriers will also get a look at the Apalachee Regional Park Course on Friday morning, 6 October 2017, during the Florida State University Cross-Country Invitational. On Saturday morning, 16 September 2017, Tallahassee Community College athletes will race at the Prefontaine Forest 5K just west of Tallahassee in the Silver Lake Recreation Area of the Apalachicola National Forest. That will be the second year in a row that the Eagles have appeared at the Prefontaine race, but on On Saturday, 23 September 2017, TCC will compete for the first time ever at the University of Florida's Mountain Dew Cross-Country Invitational in Gainesville, Florida. The Lady Eagles will make a return trip to Citizen's Lodge Park in Marianna, Florida on Saturday, 14 October 2017, competing against Panhandle rival Chipola in the Chipola College Invitational.


Championship meets cap the season. The NJCAA Region 8/FSCAA Cross Country Championship is in the Eagles hometown of Tallahassee again. TCC's women will be looking to improve on their 2016 performance, when they placed third in the Region. With only one men's team in Region 8, there will be no race for the men. Both TCC's men and women will race on Saturday, 11 November 2017, in the NJCAA Division 1 National Cross-Country Championships in Fort Dodge, Iowa. In 2016 TCC's women placed 33rd in the national meet. On Saturday, 18 November 2017, the Eagles end the year with the NJCAA Half-Marathon National Championship in Topeka, Kansas.


Unlike 2016, there are no dual meets for the Eagles on the 2017 schedule. For Tallahassee Community College's hometown fans, there are five four competitions scheduled right in Tallahassee, including the Region 8 Championship. No waiting for the next day to read about those races!

Running with the Devil and Matt McCurdy

Matt McCurdy, a Florida State University doctoral student in applied mathematics, won Tallahassee's annual Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Race at the Mike Long Track on Saturday evening, 29 July 2017. That's more impressive when you know what the Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Race is.

Matt McCurdy
Matt McCurdy

Briefly, a Devil-Take-The-Hindmost race is a run where the last runner is taken off the track at the end of each lap. In Tallahassee, removal is done by the Devil, or at least by someone dressed as the Devil. The winner is the last athlete left on the track. In the Tallahassee version, the first lap is a parade lap and elimination doesn't start till the end of the second lap. Each elimination lap has a two-minute limit. Anyone who doesn't finish the lap in two minutes is out of the race. Also, no one can start the next lap till the two minutes is up, allowing the field to regroup at the end of each lap. The length of the race depends upon the number of runners. If there are 50 athletes in the field, the race could go on for 50 laps.


27 athletes made it to the starting line of the 2017 race. At 7:00 PM, the Devil led them around the track for their first lap. Then the Devil waited for the end of the second lap and her first victim.

2017 Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Race
The First Lap

The first to be taken off the track was Alexa Poage, an eighth-grader on the cross-country team at Deerlake Middle School, out after two laps. After the third lap the Devil grabbed Nashville, Georgia master runner John Bolmer. The Devil had an especially good harvest at the end of the fourth lap, collecting Zack Bridges, Zack Scharlepp, and Lance Bolmer. 22 survivors started their second mile.


Wakulla master runner Doug Cole went to the Devil after the fifth lap, Tallahassee master runner Mike Boll after the sixth. Eleven-year-old Tallahassee runner Ryan Poage fell after seven laps, and master runner Stuart Poage after eight laps. The third mile began.

The Devil caught Tallahassee master runner Monica Judd at the end of the ninth lap, leaving Kat Sack and Katie Sherron as the last two women on the track. Matt Hohmeister was the Devil's victim on the tenth lap. Zach DeVeau, pushing his infant son Barrett in a stroller, was gone after the eleventh lap. Seth Kerr couldn't avoid the Devil's embrace at the end of lap twelve. Lap thirteen proved unlucky for Morgan Bolmer, a Berrien County High sophomore cross-country runner, taken by the Devil after that lap.


Two master runners went out next, Laryn Flikkema after lap fourteen and Brian Molen after lap fifteen. Kat Sack was the Devil's victim on the sixteenth lap, so Katie Sherron was the only woman left on the track. The women's champ only lasted one more lap, though; Sherron was gone after lap seventeen. Jack McDermott, the last master runner left in the race, fell into the Devil's clutches after eighteen laps. Eight runners were left.

Lap 18

Ryan Truchelut yanked his shoes off before starting the nineteenth lap, but barefoot running didn't help him evade the Devil. Truchelut never saw lap twenty. Bobby Duggleby did survive to start the twentieth lap, but met the Devil at the end of that circuit. Paul Guyas, exhausted by lap twenty, couldn't keep up on the 21st lap and was greeted by the Devil. Trevor Sununu had won the 2016 Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Race in 2016, going 21 laps without being caught by the Devil. In 2017 he went 22 laps before the Devil caught him. Added together, Sununu covered 43 laps before meeting the Devil, but meet her he did. The field was down to four.


Charlie Johnson took the lead on lap 23. Matt McCurdy and Chris O'Kelley let him go, safe because they were ahead of Bryce Cole. The Devil got Cole at the end of that lap, leaving three runners.

Lap 22

Johnson and McCurdy left O'Kelley behind for the Devil on the 24th lap, McCurdy hugging the rail to conserve energy. The Devil watched as Johnson and McCurdy started the 25th lap and a 400-meter duel for the win. The Devil would take the loser.


The Devil wouldn't get McCurdy. Starting off at a scorching sprint, McCurdy jumped out ahead of Johnson and didn't let up. It wasn't a surprise, though, for anyone familiar with McCurdy's career on the track team of Centre College in Danville, Kentucky.

"I ran the 800 and the 4 x 400 relay," said McCurdy. "I've got some leg speed."


McCurdy finished the 25th lap safely, half a straightaway ahead of Johnson, winning the race. The Devil had to be satisfied with Johnson and 25 other souls. As for McCurdy getting away, well, there's always next year. The Devil can be patient.

Nancy Stedman starred as the Devil at the 2017 event. Bill Lott was timer and gatekeeper, while Tec Thomas kept score. The three kept the event running smoothly in spite of any obstruction Herb Will could come up with. The next Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Race will be Saturday, 28 July 2018, unless it isn't.

Salgado siblings sweep the Flat Rock 5K

Entrance of Flat Rock Park, Columbus, GeorgiaIt was an All-Salgado show at Flat Rock Park in Columbus, Georgia on Monday evening, 24 July 2017. First, Columbus High senior Alex Salgado won the sixth annual Flat Rock 5K by half a kilometer, running 17:33. Then, in the same race, Columbus High alumna Alina Salgado took the women's title, placing eighth overall in 21:22.


For Alex Salgado, it was a stunning improvement on his previous outings in the Flat Rock Park race. In 2015 he had placed ninth in 20:53, while in 2016 he was fourth in 20:10. His winning time of 17:33 left those old marks behind; it was more in line with the times Salgado ran during the autumn of 2016 when he won seven races for the Columbus High cross-country team, including the GHSA Region 1-4A championship. Steve Darwin was second in the Flat Rock, running 19:31. Jake Eishen, a senior on the Harris County High cross-country team, edged Eduardo Valdivia for third, 19:37 to 19:39. Valdivia was the fastest master runner in the race.


Not far behind Alina Salgado at 21:31, Devin Helms was second in the women's standings and ninth overall. Helms is a junior at Harris County High where she runs for the school's cross-country team. Katie May was the third woman and eleventh overall in 21:47. Melissa House was the first woman master and fifteenth female finisher, 53rd overall in 27:47.


Lightning Sports Racing, Inc., timed the Columbus Road Runners' 2017 Flat Rock Park 5K. 145 athletes finished the race.

Kent and Keene capture the Tasty Tiger

Hungry TigerRacing up and down the ridges along Rock Creek, Sean Kent ran 19:06 to win the fifth annual Tasty Tiger Trot 5K in Dothan, Alabama on Saturday morning, 22 July 2017. Eden Keene was the first woman in the race, placing eighth overall in 23:05. 71 athletes finished the 5K.


Kent, a recent alumnus of the Troy University track and cross-country teams, had won the Tasty Tiger 5K in 2014, when the race was still a cross-country run. But in 2016, the first year that the Tasty Tiger moved to roads, Kent had finished fourth in a race won by Donalsonville, Georgia master runner Myles Gibson. Both Kent and Gibson were on the starting line in 2017. This time, Kent came out on top, finishing 140 meters ahead of Gibson. Gibson was second in 19:39. Master runner Bob Walker was third in 20:10, and Will Scott, a sophomore on the Headland High cross-country team, was fourth in 20:40.


Kate Smith, a frosh year cross-country runner at Dothan High, was second in the women's standings and seventeenth overall in 25:25. Roxanne Cook was the third woman and 23rd overall in 26:40. Kristi Holland was the top woman master and sixth female finisher, 27th overall in 27:23.


The Tasty Tiger 5K is an annual fundraiser for the Dothan High cross-country team.
