, THE JOURNAL Wednesday, July 13, 20165 a a LEONARD BANKS Sports editor In a span of seven days, Elizabeth Guthrie has competed in three major distance events, while finishing first place in her age group on two occasions. Included in the 65-year old former edu- cator's schedule is a heavy morning workout, between coaching practices for Rappahannock Swim League team the Dahlgren Sharks. On Monday, during the annual Heritage Festival 5-Mile Run, Guthrie along with nearly 500 runners raced through the streets of downtown Fredericksburg. Guthrie placed first in the women's 65-70 age group with a time of 52.58. Guthrie improved on her 2015 performance by dropping three minutes, and eight seconds off of her time. Out of the over 490 runners, 23 were from King George, including first place winners, Marcia Hall (women's 70 & over), 1:07.21, and Robert Pawlak (men's 50-54, 31.24). The men's overall winner was Fredericksburg resident, Stephen Harrison, with a time of 26.53. Fellow Fredericksburg resident, JiUian Weisbeck, was the women's overall winner with a time of 32.46. In addition to the category winners, the top men and women's military runners were Arlington resident, Nick Oltman, with a time of 28.09, and Stafford resident Sara Perez, with a time of 35.42.

SHARKS SWIMMERS OF THE are relative newcomers to swimming, but they have definitely make their mark on our team and we are very proud of both of their accomplish- ments and impact on the team. In ad- dition, they are members of the Rap- pahannock Raiders year round team, as well. Our Gifts Swimmer of the Week honors goes to 10-year-old Alexis Marshall. Alexis has made tremen- dous improvement in the short time that she has been swimming with us. Backstroke is definitely Alexis' best stroke as she has earned second and third place finishes, scoring valuable points, in all three meets so far this summer. Her third place finish in backstroke last week was with a time of 20.47 (yards). "Her fast freestyle has im- proved significantly as well, earning her a place last week on the 9-10 girls freestyle relay team, who snagged a first place finish" Shark head coach Elizabeth Guthrie said. 'Alexis comes to practice every day and works hard. She has a great positive attitude, and Our Boys Swimmer of the Week award goes to 6-year-old Wayne Thomason. Wayne may be only 6, but his freestyle time is fast enough that he competes and wins against 8-year- olds. Where most 6-year-olds swim in the 6 & under event (and therefore don't score any points) Wayne is aged up to swim against 8-year-olds in the 25 freestyle event. During the meet against Austin Ridge, Wayne placed third in the 25-yard freestyle (23.26); second in 25-meter butterfly with a time of 33.47, and first in 25-yard backstroke with a time of 29.09. Last week at the Woodlands meet, Thompson placed third in 25-yard butterfly (23.37) and second in 25- yard backstroke with a time of 25.75. His fastest freestyle times have earned him a spot on the 8 and under boys freestyle relay team. "The freestyle team has scored first place finishes in the past two meets," Guthrie said. "These are significant tunes for a six year old and we are very proud of Wayne's progress and accomplish- WIEEK ::: :- -.,. :,:.: ...... .............. ....... ..:we.are glad i: 'S -ofthe Week,'- -Wayto go, LEONARD BANKS Wardman.
