UTC's Henderson Second In Samford Invitational Mile Run

Saturday, February 8, 2014

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga sophomore Teghan Henderson (Pickering, Ontario) got outkicked at the end to finish second in the women’s Mile Run and newcomer Harry Smithers (Melbourne, Australia) finished third in the men’s 3000 meter run Saturday afternoon at the Samford Multi and Invitational event at the Birmingham CrossPlex.

“I told Teghan to make a race of it,” UTC Head Coach Bill Gautier said. “She led most of the race but got outkicked at the end. I was really pleased with her.”

Henderson led most of the race but was outkicked at the end by Southern Conference rival Lauren D’Allssio of Samford. She was just 0.93 seconds behind the Bulldog with a time of 4:51.76 in her first Mile race in more than a year.

Smithers, a transfer running in just his second indoor track meet, finished third in the men’s 3000 meter run with a time of 8:26.15. Senior Nathan Wanuch (Mississauga, Ontario) finished 12th overall and second in his heat with a time of 8:32.53 while senior Mark Cole (McKenzie, Tenn.) finished with a time of 8:43.69.

“Harry competed,” Gautier said. “I thought he had an outstanding race. Nathan got boxed-in in his heat. I think he may have done better in a different one.”

Both runners qualified for the fast heat at the conference with their times joining Cole who qualified at the first event this season.

In the women’s 3000 meter run, junior Keeley Stewart (Winchester, Tenn.) led three Chattanooga runners in the event with a PR time of 10:21.21. Sophomore Rebecca Greenwall (Bogart, Ga.) finished with a time of 10:3.16 followed by freshman Katie Ray (Knoxville, Tenn.) with a time of 11:21.25.

We Need The Chattanooga History Center

Having been on several of Dr. Daryl Black's walking tours, I can say that they weren't just informative, but a treat. The downtown, Fort Wood and Ninth Street of yesteryear were brought dramatically to life. We stood on the ground where Sherman had his headquarters (near the Ice Cream Show) and the corner where Bessie Smith sang as a young girl. And we also stood beneath the ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: He’s Exempt From Drunk

I love the old story about a popular Senator who, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, was asked late one evening, “Sir, what if we get bombed?” to which came the quick reply, “I’d be absolutely delighted … I can get one of my aides to drive us home afterwards.” You think of stuff like that when word comes from Kentucky that state legislator Brandon Smith was caught driving erratically ...
