Homer High standout wins adult race by four minutes

Jacob Davis may have went into the Jakolof 10-Miler as one of the lesser know athletes in the field. He certainly didn't finish that way.

The Homer High School standout shocked the 17-man field in the Adult Men's division on Saturday by leggging out an impressive four-minute victory.

"He surprised us all by winning it," said Andy Haas, who finished seventh overall. "To beat Pedro (Ochoa) is a stunning achievement, but to run that race with a 500-foot elevation gain at a 6-minute mile pace is really great."

A standout on the HHS ski team, David the win look easy. He legged out a time of 1 hour, 1 minute and 31 seconds over the 10-mile course. Ochoa, who had entered the race as one of the favorites to win, finished second at 1:05:37.

Bill Rich, Denver Waclawski and Jeremy Lombourn rounded out the top five spots in the men's division.

Martin Renner topped the men's division in the 10-mile bicycle race. He finished with a time of 38 minutes and 23 seconds and edged out second-place finisher Dexter Lowe by 4 minutes.

Lowe pedaled his way across the finish line in a time of 42:38.

Gary Lyon, Morgan Ransom and Eddie Vraspir too third, fourth amd fifth in the bike standings, respectively.

Ellis Lorentz won the boys' bike race with a time of 1:11:34. Lukas Renner placed second at 1:16:48.

Jane Wiebe held off a strong push from Autumn Daigle to win the women's run crown. Wiebe conquered the course in a time of 1:22:54 — and finished 21 seconds ahead of Daigle, who checked in at 1:23:15.

Annie Ridgely finished third.

Stephanie Blanchard posted a run-away win in the women's bike race. She turned in a time of 43:45 and easily outdistanced Catriona Reynolds to the finish line. Reynolds was second at 47:45.

Duna Snedgren won the girls' bike race with a mark of 1:37.51.
