ST. THOMAS'S DAVID, ST. CROIX'S BOHLKE WIN RACE

May 4, 2003 — William "Billy" Bohlke of St. Croix and Ruth Ann David of St. Thomas, both familiar names at the top of local races, topped the field of 107 runners in the 21st annual Carnival Mile Saturday morning.
Bohlke, a recent graduate and 1500-meter runner at Louisiana State University, participated for the first time in the race, and easily outdistanced fellow Cruzan Greg Johnson with a time of 4:43. Johnson, a long-time competitor, won the Master's Division with his time of 5:19. Third place went to 17-year-old Luis Guillen in a time of 5:46, and last year's winner Maurice Kurg was a close 4th in 5:47.
David, a four-time winner of the race, won in a time of 5:35 — just two seconds off the course record she posted last year. Charley Charles of Charlotte Amalie High School was second in 5:57, followed by two more teens: Aniecia Williams and former winner Tyfia Lee in 6:07 and 6:46 respectively.
The field included runners from 4 to 70-plus years old. Under the race sponsorship of Seaborne Airlines, proceeds go to benefit the St. Thomas-St. John Chapter of the American Red Cross.
