Summer Fun Runs Hit the LHS Track for Second Week

By Chris Paul

The Greater Derry Track Club (GDTC) had another break in the weather on Monday evening, July 31, and was able to send waves of runners off on the Londonderry High School track to participate in the second set of Summer Fun Run races.


The annual series has been stifled this season due to the weather cancellations and the six set of races has been cut to three this summer.
Races are run in several age groups from two-and-up, with the results of the 9-13 ages being recorded for end-of-season prizes.
In the younger age groups, every participant receives a ribbon for competing.
The top three finishers in the second week of racing were:
In the boys’ 9-year-old group: Rylan Cullen of Derry was first, Ross Morrison of Londonderry was second, and TJ Satosuosso of Derry was third.
The girls’ 9-year-old group had Sasha Solovyeva of Hudson finish in first, Audrey Pisani of Derry was second, and Zoey MacAskill of Londonderry took third.
The boys’ 10-year-old group had Andrew Solovyev of Hudson take first with Colin McKenna of Derry in second, and Reid Spencer of Londonderry in third.
In the girls’ 10-year-old group, Calina MacGillivray of Londonderry came in first, Brooke Reiff of Windham was second, and Lacy Manzer of Londonderry was third.
In the boys’ 11-year-old race, Uriah Geisser of Londonderry was first, Nicholas Tiney of Sandown was second, and Toby Molloy of Manchester took third.
In the girls’ 11-year-old race, Meghan Mullaney and Adelynn Mullaney of Derry finished in first and second.
In the boys’ 12-year-old race, Bennett MacCulloch of Londonderry was first, Jacob Tiney of Sandown finished second, and Raymond Blethen of Londonderry was third.
The girls’ 12-year-old division, Emma Cyr of Londonderry was first, Isley Morrison of Londonderry came in second, and Kelsey Santosuosso of Derry finished in third.
For the boys’ 13-year-old group, Mason Hernandez of Londonderry took first and Dimitri Sarantis of Pelham was second.
For the 13-year-old group, Stella Dutton of Windham was first and Jocelyn McGarry of Windham took second.
