Lewis organizes Pope’s Creek 1K and 5K races

Despite a light rain, the Annual Popes Creek 1K and 5K races, held at George Washington’s Birthplace in Westmoreland County, and hosted by Washington and Lee High School’s Cross Country Team, went off without a hitch.

The 1K-winner in the kid’s division was Celene King, with a time of 8:38. The women’s 5K-winner was Vanessa Lambrect, with a time of 27:30, and the men’s 5K-winner was Don McKenney, with a time of 21:04.

Also a winner was W&L Taylor Lewis who helped organize and coordinate the races. “Taylor, a senior, has done an incredible job doing all of the legwork for this race,” said Cole Vanover, Coach of the Boys’ W&L Track and Field Team.

“Doing all of this while having a full schedule of honors and AP classes, participating on the track and field team, and making life-changing decisions about where to attend college in the fall, really shows how responsible she is as an adult,” Vanover said.

“Taylor did a good job of putting it all together,” said Cindy Flickinger, the Girls’ W&L Track and Field Coach. “She is an awesome young lady. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her since she was in the eighth grade.”

 Vanover said that Taylor Lewis and the other seniors on this year’s W&L Cross Country Team made an early commitment to the event’s success. “Taylor Lewis has really been the leader of it,” he said. “She has been excellent leading the group.”

“If only more of our youth would give back to their communities like Taylor has done,” said Flickinger. “Although she is quiet, she is a go-getter.”

Taylor, who is headed for the College of Charleston in the fall, seems unfazed by all of the praise for her tireless efforts. “There were a lot of us working on it. We began the race to raise money for the W&L Cross Country Team, as well as promote a healthy lifestyle for the youth in our community.”

Others helping with this year’s race included Jacob Daiger, Emma Oliver, Anna Sisson, Serna Thompson, Jamie Garland and Sergei Minor.

In the women’s 5K, following Vanessa Lambrect, were: Amanda Birdsall (28:32), Kristina Swarts (28:48), Robin Evans (29:26), Cory Woodrow (41:51), Kelly Evans (41:51) and Esther Oliver (48:18).

In the men’s 5K, after McKenney, were: Austin Evans (21:43), Aaron Hooks (22:15), Donald Saunders (22:48), Dave Hershiser (23:42), Kyle Vukson (24:34), William Blanks, Jr. (25:32), Jim Howell (27:19), Brad Jones (42:31) and Michael Oliver (48:27).

Following Celene King in the kid’s 1K were: Leslie Marin (8:41), Abby Sudduth (8:53), Lydia Wallace (9:09) and Celina Brankson (10:47).

In addition to the Popes Creek races, the W&L Cross Country Team now sponsors the Chandler three-mile race which is held the first Saturday in October, in connection with Montross’ Fall Festival.
