Penn Relays Racewalks

The racewalks opened Saturday's Penn Relays competition. Aided by near perfect weather conditions, Shore AC's John Soucheck finished first in the Masters Men's 10,000m racewalk and 5th overall (Men's Olympic Development, Masters and Juniors are competed together) in 48:35.86, his quickest over the 10km distance since the 2000 Penn Relays. Rich Leuttchau took 3 minutes off his 2005 Penn Relays debut to finish in 49:35.41, which placed him 4th in the Olympic Development section, 7th overall. Kristina Bonfiglio was Shore AC's rep in the Women's 5000m racewalk, placing 15th among junior women (31:34.97). Visit www.racewalk.com for race reports and a few photos.
