FitzGerald, Allen Pace Bike Trials

Picture 001.JPGThe 2010 NW La. District Senior Olympics bike trials drew the biggest entry in several years, thanks to the work of Event Coordinators Sandi Triplett (pictured center behind bike in this photo of most of the entries) and her husband Danny. Click photo to enlarge image. 

Newcomer Tim FitzGerald and frequent visitor Charles Allen won divisions of the Northwest Louisiana District Senior Olympics bike trails April 25.

FitzGerald posted the best 5-K time (seven minutes, 11 seconds). The 57-year-old president of TFG Financial LLC, who trains with Team LaS’port, the club he helped found, was 33-seconds better than Allen, who captured the 65-69 age bracket. The District Olympics gold medal will have to share space on the FitzGerald mantel with masters championships he’s won in  Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. “I’ve heard a lot about this competition but this is the first time I could make it,” FitzGerald said. “But I’ll be back.” Due to a prior commitment, FitzGerald had to pass up the 10-kilometer trials which were run on Ellerbe Road from the Frierson Road intersection.

Allen, from Texarkana, Ark., dominated the 10-K with a 15:33 time. After his sweep, he said he was pleased with the effort.  “This  is the event I prime for all winter,” Allen said. “I spend my training building for it.” Allen, who was a standout in the 2009 bike trials, said he felt his preparation, which is made up of 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hour sessions three times a week, is tailored to get him ready for the two District distances. He said post-race that he would give the winter work a good grade.
Second-best time in the 10-K, which faced some stiff head wind coming home, was posted by Bob Crosby (16:11).

Terry Harkey and Sandi Triplett captured two golds each in the women’s division.

Ron Adams Repeats as Golf Best

Filed under: General News — gerry @ 2:45 am

Ron Adams posted six birdies throughout his round to finish with a one-under par 71 and claim his second straight championship in the NW La. District Senior Olympics golf tournament at Crooked Hollow GC April 23.

Adams played the front nine in 37 and took off coming home, scoring three birdies to go with a lone bogey (at the 17th) for a two-under 34. Keith Mire posted a 39-36–75 for second place and Richard Almond (38-39–77) and Bob Jahnke (36-41–77) finished tied for third place. Larry Joubert (40-38–78) and Buck Gibbs (38-41–79) rounded out the top scores as golfers battled through a rain delay and finished on greens made tender by intermittent and sometimes heavy showers.

Donna Cobb posted a 43-40–83 and Kathleen McCoy 45-44–89 to lead women’s scoring.

Adams broke from the gate with a birdie and assumed the lead as playing partners Mire and Almond slipped off course early-on. At the nine-hole turn, Adams held a two-shot edge on Mire and Almond.  Although he played the course in a different sequence due to the tournament’s shot-gun start, Jahnke bettered Adams over the front nine with even par 36.

Golfers qualify for state competition by meeting the following standards: 95 or less for those 50-59, 100 or less for 60-69 year olds, 105-or less for 70-79s and 110 or less for 80-89 year olds.The state championships are tentatively set for Oct. 4-5 at a site to be determined.
