Berrien County's Bolmer and Chandler each taste sweet victory at the Honeybee 5K

Hahira Honeybee FestivalA pair of Berrien County High sophomore cross-country runners were prominent on the streets of Hahira, Georgia on Saturday morning, 7 October 2017. Morgan Bolmer took first in the Honeybee 5K, part of Hahira's annual Honeybee Festival, running 18:58. Rebecca Chandler was the first woman and second overall in 20:43.


It's October. Don't you guys have a cross-country meet somewhere?


Eric Little of Maitland, Florida was the fastest master runner in the race and the second male finisher, placing third overall in 20:46. A flurry of school-age athletes were next over the line--Highland Christian's Jonathan Daniely (4th, 21:40), Lowndes High sophomore Jackson Lawson (5th, 21:42), Highlands Christian senior Alden Lisse (6th, 21:43), and Hahira Middle School eighth-grader Ryan Carter (7th, 21:45). For a few moments, it looked like the finish chute of a cross-country meet.


In addition to sixth overall, Lisse was also runner-up in the women's standings. Pollyanna Bass of Pavo, Georgia was the top woman master and third female finisher, eleventh overall in 22:43.


129 athletes finished the 2017 Honeybee 5K. A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta, Georgia timed the race and provided finish line services.
