He was followed by Dave Wilson, 42, of Brookfield, who mastered the course in 16:04.5. Jeff Bailey, 26, of Evanston, was third in 16:13.3, and Kevin Keegan, 25, of Chicago, was fourth in 16:23.8. Jacqui Giuliano, 25, of Schaumburg, was first woman in 17:58.3. Cecelia Dietzen, 29, of Lombard, was second in 18:34.1; Liz Driscoll, 24, of Lagrange Park, was third in 18:38.1; and Katlyn Bednarski, 23, of Des Plaines, was fourth in 18:40.3. This race also was sprinkled with some strong performances throughout the age-group results. Nice job!
