CMS closes out the USATF New England Grand Prix at the Lone Gull 10K

The Central Mass Striders traveled to Gloucester, MA for the USATF New England 10K Championships. This was the last in the seven race Grand Prix series which has historically finished each year with a marathon (Ocean State, Cape Cod, Bay State, or Manchester City) since 1997. The Vermont City Marathon, held in May, is rumored to be bidding for the 2016 Grand Prix. It was 72 degrees, cloudy, with a 11mph wind coming from the west, northwest at the start. The head wind greeted the athletes exiting Eastern Point and over the last 1.5 miles.

The CMS open team was led by Dan Vassallo (31:18) placing 6th overall. Scott Leslie, winner of the 2015 All Terrain Series, placed 10th overall with a time of 32:15. The next three scoring members for the open team dropped down from the masters scoring to help the open team place 4th overall. Gregory Putnam was the 2nd master overall with a time of 33:54. Joe Shairs, Tim Van Orden, Arthur Besse, and James Pawlicki capped off the scoring for the masters team who placed 2nd to the BAA. 

The CMS Seniors team placed 2nd overall to Whirlaway. Dan Verrington led the way for the Seniors and was the 7th Senior overall. Dave Dunham, Martin Tighe, John Gillis, and John Griego finished up the top five scoring for the Senior team.
