On the girls side Courtney Hall won the race, fending off a late charge by Bishop Kenny teammate Kelly Marshall. "It felt really easy," Hall said. Marshall explained her late attempt to outkick her teammate by saying, "I didn't think I had anything left and then I did!" The two girls are very good friends and virtually spoke in unision to answer questions after the race. "We both have been really sick... Last week (we) only ran one mile." They shook off any signs of illness for the big 1-2 punch tonight.
In college races Vicky Gill of FSU ran her way to a 16:44, under the provisional national standard. UF's Cory Presnick won the mens 5K race. Alan Webb, now professional, was unimpressive in the 800 meters and not friendly to any members of the media (all two there who wanted to talk with him)--both Webb and Coach Scott Raczko were too busy to answer any questions from either flrunners.com or the Gainesville Sun.
