HAIL TO THE CHAMPIONS !
STREET MEN'S & WOMEN'S TEAMS
THE NYRRC 2003 CHAMPS!
Congratulations to all those who made yet another
championship possible. After a year long battle for first the men's team who
were in first place all year just held on to win by 7 points over a WSX
powerhouse (WS men's 4th consecutive NYRRC Championship), unlike the men WS
women were never in first until the next to last race of the year. They
showed their resolve & commitment by never quitting, thus eking out a
one point win over a very fine (last year's champions) CPTC.
Mike G. men's team co captain sums it all up in this
letter below sent to coach Rick Pascarella.
Both the Men's and Women's teams are NYRR Champions for yet another year! This
year, our team won thanks to the many dedicated members who make up our team.
If it were not for our depth, we would not have won. When a top performer was
unable to race, others stepped up and scored. And then there were some
dedicated folks who were out there practically every race. This truly
defines teamwork. I'm so proud to be associated with such a great group of
people who comprise our team.

Mother's Day 5km: Congratulations to Mike Anderson's first place
performance, a fitting tribute to Hallie, Mike's wife, they are
expecting their first child soon.
Women's 1/2 marathon: Doris Correa was outstanding in her
crossing the finish line before all others. To bad some zealous
countryman of hers ran out to cheer her home, his action fostered a protest,
race management disqualified Doris, WS has filed an appeal. Prior to
the ruling via appeal Alayne Adams of CPTC the athlete who was awarded first
place has graciously withdrawn her protest. Doris has been reinstated as the
winner which also meant re-scoring the team competition. Warren Street Women's
team took 1st team honors, led by Doris Correa (1:23:27), Jeanne
Pare'(1:25:49, 4th Pl.) , Hanna Pechackova (1:32:20, 19th Pl.) & Celine
Perrot (1:32:37, 21St Pl.). Rounding out the women's team was Alexandra
Warren, Sarah Tison, Rosemary Feitelberg & Natalie Cheltenham-Festa.

finished 2nd overall!! The men were led by Silky Wilkinson (5th), Marc

(24th). Great job guys! The women were led by Jean
Chodnicki-Stemm (8th), Diane Bownes (31st), Hana Pechakova (32nd) and Celine
This weekend was full of races. First the men and World Indoor Mile
Masters Record Holder Lyubov Kremleva escaped NYC on Saturday to commence
the USATF-Long Island Grand Prix. The men won and scored 100 points to start
the LI season. They were led by a one-two finish by MikeG and Mike Anderson.
Co-captain Hans Parrado (5th), new member Marc Antone (10th) and first
"varsity point" Nick Lavacca rounded out the top five scorers
(18th). On the woman's side, Lyubov smashed the former course record of
23:13 in a blistering 21:42 (5:25 pace) and earned herself a nice piece of
change for the record (i.e. $$$$$). By the way, Lyubov is a master! Her
performance was probably one of the fastest if not the fastest 4 miles every
run on Long Island by woman, never mind by a master. Unfortunately, we
didn't field a woman's team.
On Sunday, the infamous Coogan's 5K in Washington Heights attracted a
nice crowd (in crappy weather). The men and women's team both took 2nd,
earning $200 for each team. Lyubov led all women scorers with a first place
finish (and earning $500). Let's just say the NYRR scoring was fouled
up....but Celine Johnson was approx 17th, new member Olena Plastinina was
approx 19th, and Stacey Juckett approx 21st. The men were led by MikeG
(5th), Pascal Sauvayre (21st), Chris "I now live in Denmark"
Madsen (24th), Nick "just racking up varsity points" Lavacca
(36th), and James Dee (53rd). To follow the race in traditional Warren
Street fashion, the team consumed Shepard's Pie and countless pints of
Guinness on the house. I'm sure another team photo will make the wall at
Coogan's! Well done and a big thank you - PETER AND DAVID, our teammates and
gracious hosts at COOGAN'S (168th/Broadway).
Congratulations to the men's team for the 1st place finish and women's
team for their 2nd place
team finish at the Snowflake 4
miler! The men were led by MikeG
(3rd), Jim Lynch (6th), Matt Wilkinson (7th), Mike Anderson (8th) and Brent
Purin (9th). Great guys! The women were led by Jeanne Pare (8th), Jean Chodnicki-Stemm (9th) and Doris Correa
(11th) & Celine Perrot-Johnson (30th). Great job women.
WS master runner Lyubov Kremleva broke the World Indoor masters mile
record by running a blistering 4:29:72 (in her Warren Street top) at the
New Balance Elite Mile run at the Armory 1/25/03. WS women masters runners
now held the American indoor mile record, Kim Griffin 4:59:17 & now
Lyubov. And of course former WS runner Khalid Khannouchi holds the world
marathon record. Warren Street the home of champions!
The WS Men wrapped up the 2002 year with victories at the last two
races the season. WS Men won the Wantagh Snowball 5M on Saturday to
clinch the USATF Long Island LDR Grand Prix (and $950 in team cash).
Then on Sunday, the WS Men won the JoeK 10K to clinch the NYRR Championship
Series for the third time in as many years (just pride)! This was
another successful season for the Warren Street Men! Many different
folks stepped up throughout the year to help WS earn the well deserved top
honors in each series. It was our goal from the start of 2002 to win
both series. Thanks to all for making it a great year. We look
forward to our victory celebration in late January 2003.
JoeK 10K: The team placed 2, 3, 4, 9, & 16. Leading the way
was Jimmy Lynch, followed by Prisco Huerta (second race of the weekend),
Brent Purin, all 3 of whom were within 16 seconds of each other. Next was
new team member, Nick Scerbo from the Naval Academy, then Maddog (who also
doubled this weekend) rounded out the top five scorers. Jim Stemm was 3rd
overall master in the race and 6th WSSACer. And a big Welcome Back to our
Kiwi friend Steve Walker, who moved back to NYC from New Zealand! The
women's team finished in 3rd place. Jean Chodnicki-Stemm led the way
in 9th place, followed by Diane Bownes (22nd) and Doris Correa (23rd).
Wantagh 5M: The team ran as a pack for the first few miles and
placed 2, 3, 4, 5, & 7. Leading the way was Stephane Bois, followed by
Prisco Huerta, Mike Anderson, co-captains Hans Parrado and Mike Guastella.
Chris "Maddog" Madsen cruised through the race placing 11th.
Following the race, in typical WS fashion, the team toasted the season
victory with Killian's Red throughout the morning (on the house, thanks to
the race sponsor Mulcahy's Bar). For full race results, go to www.flrrt.com.
Oyster Bay 5K: The Warren Street Men continued their winning ways
taking top honors at the Oysterfest 5K in Oyster Bay Long Island. The men
scored all five in the top 10 (Sean MacMillan 2nd, Chris Madsen 3rd,
co-captain Hans Parrado 5th, Stephane Bois 7th, and newcomer Oliver Staley
PR'ed for 10th place on the hilly north shore course). Celine led the
women's effort a 1st place age group. Karen MacNamara was next and
Michelle rounded out the effort.
Staten Island Half: Great Job Silky Wilky with your 1st place
finish in 1:11:14. Jimmy Lynch finished 2nd, Chris Madsen was 3rd
(PR!), Thomas Von Rohr was 28th and Andrew Donacik was 47th. The men
finished 3rd overall in the team competition.
Fred Lebo 5K XC: The men's team put in a strong showing with the
scoring members all in the top 13! Matt (Silky Wilky) Wilkinson
finished 2nd overall, Jimmy Lynch was 3rd, Brent Purin was 6th, Eitan Tabak
was 10th and Hans Parrado rounded out the scoring members in 13th. The
women finished 2nd in the team competition. Tara Sullivan led the pack
with a 4th place overall finish, Barbara Gubbins was 6th overall and Leila
Burr was 8th overall. Great job men and women!!
Dutchess County Marathon:
The race itself was awful, I ran one of my slowest marathons (in
years) and it was work to do that. I may not have finished if I didn't have
my friends from Warren Street there and a HUGE desire to win a race. I am
so, so proud of winning it!! The trophy is huge and the trip to Jamaica is
is horribly wrong (for instance my PR is 3:09:53 not 3:30) but look at
the byline:"Juckett wins women's marathon crown", that alone makes
it worth seeing!!! So to everyone who had to hear about this marathon over
the past few months, I just wanted to let y'all to know it's done!
Gary Farley Memorial 5K:
The WSSAC men extend their Long Island Grand Prix
winning streak to five at the Police Officer Gary Farley Memorial 5K in
Wantagh, Long Island.
Leading the team was Chris "Maddog" Madsen (2nd place overall in
16:12). Not only did Chris PR by 41 seconds but he "never
finished that close to the lead in a road race!". Co-captain Hans
Parrado was 4th, Eitan Tabak a half-stride behind in 5th, John McCready 8th
and Kent Hawryluk rounded out the top five scoring men in 13th (first WS
"varsity" point). Rudy Daempfle 22nd continues to displace
other team's scoring members. Although this race was not considered a
relay, Eitan was required to accept a "baton" pass mid-race by
co-captain and injured reserve specialist MikeG.
For the ladies, relatively new member Michele
Labrento led the team, newlywed Victorien Madsen PR'ed yet again, and Loes
Van-Oostrom traveled all the way from Amsterdam to race in the world famous
LI Grand Prix.
Post race celebration and awards ceremony was held at a LI hot-spot down the
road at a place called Mulcahy's. Inside this huge sports bar, WSer's
refueled with a hot breakfast including sausages & bacon and some beer
from the Rocky Mountains. At this junction, teammates ribbed drivers
Maddog and MikeG for getting them to the race an hour before any other
Club Team Championships!!! CLICK
HERE 4 BBQ PHOTOS Thank you DON WILCOX for hosting our post race
party. We all had a great time!

The WS women snuck in a fourth place. Jean Chodnicki-Stemm was our top

Burr 28th & Celine Perrot-Johnson 30th, and Laurie Meacham 37th rounded

1:11:38, Brent Purin was 8th in 1:13:48, Stephane Bois was 12th in 1:14:19

a little windy day. Has there ever been a cool & flat Bronx Half
Marathon???? Special Mention to Chris Madsen who ran a 1:14:57
PR. Although it was not a grand prix scoring race, the women deserve
special mention for a 1st place team effort! Stacey Juckett led the
way with an 8th place finish. Melissa McCarthy was next with 10th
place and Laurie Meacham was 11th. Good job women! PHOTOS TO
Massapequa Firecracker 5K: Men take 1st place in the Men's team

those over a few beers after the race), the team award goes to the WS last
scorer, in this case John McCready. Thanks John!! Sean MacMillan WON, MikeG
5th, Eitan 8th, John 20th, Rudy 34th and Jeremy 40th (and Celine was about
12th, good for 2nd place in her age group).
FR Gay Pride Race: Men take 1st & Women take 3rd in the team
competition! Sean MacMillan puts in another stud like performance with
a win (25:24) at the Front Runner's Gay Pride Race. Much to the
disappointment of the Front Runner's, MikeG did not show to the race in his
typical thong attire. He decided that as a spectator he would be
better off in more conservative running gear. The men were led by Sean
(1st), Brent Purin (3rd), Stephane Bois (6th), Prisco Huerta (8th) and
Venkat Reddy (10th). Great job guys! The women finished 3rd in
the team competition. Nadegda Sandrkina led the scoring effort with an

the course record). Brent Purin finished 2nd in 25:56. MikeG, MikeA, &
Eitan were 5th, 6th, & 7th respectively, all under 26:30. Hans Parrado
followed close behind the WS pack & Chris "Maddog" Madsen ran
a PR to give the boys a little insurance. This gave WSSAC their second
consecutive win in the Keyspan Energy Long Island LDR Grand Prix.

"Rick, It's a relief to have the SI 1/2 scratched because I
haven't run over 8 miles for as long as I can remember. Here's a good
story for you. I ran the Denville Harvest Festival today. $150
for 1st femal, double money if a NJ TAC person, triple mone if a Morris
county resident. I got to the race and decided that I was going to run
to win. I passed Laurie Parton a mile one and never looked back.
Shoelace untied at mile two. Finished the race in 17:59.
Collected $50 and am now sitting at home drinking a beer. Is this what
they mean by 'aging gracefull'? See you soon." Jeanne Pare
