Hot, Hot, Hot!

Sticky Weather Contributes to Light Turnout

by William H. Kile III

It couldn't have been much hotter than it was the third weekend in July for the annual Bill Kile's Memorial Run.

Numbers were down considerably from the race's first two years, but those who did come out to Cooper River Park in Pennsauken seemend to have a good time.


Eric Lorenz of Medford led the field of 72 finishers to become the third champion of the event honoring the respected educator.

Lorenz, 29, is no stranger to being in the lead or withstanding unbearable conditions. A graduate of Holy Cross High School and Wake Forest University, Lorenz won this year's Pineland Striders Fourth of July 10K race on what he called, "one of the hottest races I've ever run..."

Lorenz, whose father Herb is himself a legend on the roads and coaches Lenape High School's boys cross country team, completed the TAC-certified four-mile loop course around the river in 20 minutes and 27 seconds.

John Marino, 38, of Doylestown, PA wa Lorenz's nearest challenger, finishing in 22:22.

Other top 10 men finishers were Gary Knight, 20, Narberth, PA (3rd, 22:48), Joe Puleo, 32, Paoli, PA (4th, 23:47), Kevin Franceschini, 34, Haddonfield (5th, 23:51), T.J. Bruzek, 18, Sewell (6th, 24:50), Frank Webb, 54, Millville (7th, 24:58), Rich Ridenour, 40, Bellmawr (8th, 25:11), Kevin Hays, 38, Pitman (9th, 25:15), and Pete Pataro, 37, Pennsauken (11th, 26:52).

Pamela Gess, 30, of Somerdale captured the women's division of 25 participants with an impressive 10th place finish of 25:21.

Gess was followed by Mary Rose Blaney, 26, of Cinnaminson, who was second at 27:26 (12th place), followed by Mary Ellen Watts, 28, Millville (14th, 27:54) in third.

Proceeds from the race benefit The William H. Kile Jr. Humanitarian Scholarship Fund at Pennsauken High School.

1999 Scholarship Winners

by William H. Kile III

The William H. Kile Jr. Humanitarian Scholarship Fund for 1999 was awarded to Pennsauken High School students Steven Creel and Kerry Gallagher, and Jonathan Paolini of the Howard Phifer Middle School.

Creel plans on studying computer science at Rowan University with the intention of transferring to Virginia Tech. He was active in many clubs at Pennsauken, including Legend yearbook staff, Leo Club, World of Difference, Pier Mediation, and was on the stage crew.

Gallagher was ranked 15th in her class with a 3.8 GPA. She was a member of the National Honor Society and French Honor Society for two years. Gallagher, who was vice president of her senior class, plans on majoring in education at Rutgers University. An outstanding athlete, she made the second All-Olympic Conference lacrosse team her senior season. Gallagher also played fullback on the junior varsity soccer team her freshman and sophomore seasons.

The 1999 run raised $1,000 for the scholarship fund. The William H. Kile Jr. Humanitarian Scholarship is the largest memorial fund at Pennsauken. In three years the race has raised $6,500. Thank you for all your support. See you next year!
