Young guns dominate Outlet Liquors race

Last Sunday’s Outlet Liquors 5K featured 20 runners under 20 minutes, including seven under 20 years old and three women. The race was won by 15-year-old Matt Wisner from the Thundering Herd of Carlisle High School in the 717 in a time of 17:57, slow by summer standards, but don’t tell the 377 runners he beat to the finish line.

Jason Tripp, 41, was second and masters champion in 18:20 followed by Joey Andrisani, 30, in 18:25; Sam Mackenzie, 30, in 18:33; and Connor McNamara, 16, in 18:38.

A portion of the proceeds from the race went to the Dewey Beach Patrol. John Zacharias, 18:43, and Ryan Cannon, 19:12, were the top Dewey lifeguards.

Natalie Mackenzie, 31, was the first woman in 18:49 followed by Tara Cavaselis in 19:37 and Caroline Pennacchio in 19:41.

Tiffany Lang, 19, at  20:10 outsprinted her mother Vicki Lang, 44, who ran 20:45 to capture the masters title.

An impressive time was run by age-group winner Bonnie McCloe, 72, in 26:49.

Jack Wisner, 12, little brother of Matt the winner, ran 21:37.

Jules Woodall, 65, who actually had a grandson born during the race, ran 25:33 to win his age group. Jules has run in 93 consecutive 10 Sisters races or has 93 grandchildren; he was confused which stat was accurate.

Doug White, 70, won his age group in 25:23, but Gene King, 70, ran 26:10 and has his sights set on reeling in the Hall of Fame runner.
