V.I. PACE RUNNERS TEAM NO. 1 IN FORT-TO-FORT RELAY

Aug. 26, 2002 – Seven teams of four runners each competed in the 19th Annual Fort-To-Fort Relay Road Race Sunday on St. Croix.
The 15.5-mile race was definitely for the physically fit, observed Wallace Williams.
With the early morning start, Billy Bohlke, a recent graduate of NCAA Track and Field Champion at Louisiana State University, where he was the school's top miler, ran the first leg for the V.I. Pace Runners team. The effort put the team, consisting of Bohlke, Wallace Williams, Marlon Williams and George Cannon, in first place all the way. The team's finishing time was 1 hour 38 minutes and 12 seconds for the 15.5 miles.
The Untouchables, with Kent Bradbury, Jeremy Laurent, Theresa Harper and Luke Frederick, took second place with a time of 1:50.52. Third place went to V.I. Express Track Club — with Leslie Caesar, Donald Shillingford Jr., Leopold Fredericks and Barrymore Berley – in 2:02.48. Fourth place was the V.I. National Guard team of Kevin Liburd, Dwayne Cromwell, Emil James and Mervin Mills in 2:05.12. Fifth place went to The Road Runners with Javier Roman, Leslie Farrelly, Ray Lutz and Luis Hill.
The V.I. National Guard Female Team was sixth overall and the first-place female team with Almira Fahie, Nancy Camacho, Pauline Haywood and Carol Morris in 2:28.32, and De Tre and Me was seventh with Rey Ruiz, Jo Shim, Diane Schueber and Marie Witmer in 2:36.24.
