The Staten Island AC's

3 Mile
Fun Run

December 27, 2008

By Dave Panza 

Luis Ramirez and Maggie McCauley were the winners of the weekly SIAC Run for Fun at Clove Lakes Park.  Ramirez covered the three mile course in 18:24, narrowly defeating Mario Ricca, Jr. (18:34) and Mark Vogt (18:47).
McCauley won the women's race in 24:04, with Lisa Rigolini finishing second in 28:48.
We heard screaming from the walkers club of Marie Garone, Kathy Mezzano and Jeannie Rowan after the race and assumed they had spotted an exotic animal scurrying in their path.  It turns out a squirrel leaped from a tree onto Fred Rigolini's head and shoulder, clearly looking for the nearest landing post rather than a direct launch to the ground.  Although Fred was uninjured, we are researching whether this means seven years of good fortune for him or a curse upon him.  We will let you know.
