Quednau Leads Tower Trots
Todd Quednau, 28, of Downers Grove, opened with a 33:44 vbictory run in the Tower Trot 10K in Western Springs, and followed up with a second-place 5K time of 17-flat to be the "Double" champ at this long-standing race in the west suburbs. Bob Mathews, 43, of Chicago, won the 5K outright in 16:33, and Lloyd Christmas, 19, of Sycamore, took third in 17:22. Back in the 10K, Alex Lyons, 19, of La Grange (perfect name or what?) was second in 33:53, and Mark Holt, 17, of La Grange Highlands, was third in 34:08. In the women's races, starting with the 10K, Lauren Haberkorn, 20, of Oak Lawn, won in 40:06; Kilsea Kilrea, 17, of La Grange Park, was second in 41:59, and Stephanie Wagner, 36, of Lombard, was third in 42:45. The women's 5K was won by Megan Baganz, 33, of Naperville, in 19:07. Second went to Jane Simpson, 20, of Western Springs, in 19:51, and third went to Katie Roth, 30, of Lockport, in 20:48. Kilrea appears to be the women's "Double" champ off her 30th-place 24:25 in the 5K. I'm not positive. There were 434 finishers in the 10K and 864 in the 5K.
