Sacred Heart Labor Day 5K results

Results from the Sacred Heart 5K in Lawrenceburg, Tenn., are posted at ShoalsTrac.com.

A handful of Limestone runners made quite a showing at the race.

Bud Bowen, 59, of Elkmont, earned second-place overall in 20:46. (Though I'm not really sure if the results listing is entirely accurate because that time is actually 40 seconds slower than the guy listed at first-place Male Master and a similar issue exists between the Top Three Overall Females and the Top Three Female Masters).

UPDATE!: Thanks to mgreene who left the following comment to explain my confusion on the results as noted above: The reason the results seem funny, is that they give away money to the top 3 overall and top master. Sometimes, so as not to hurt anyone, they juggle the results so everyone maxes out on cash prizes. No juggling of time, though!

Hyunsook Clark, 42, who actually hails from Huntsville but is running buddies with Athens' Phillip Dean, took the second-place award in the Female Masters category with a finish time of 26:03.
Phillip, 54, took an age-group third in 26:57.

Barry Pugh, 40, of Elkmont, took third Male Master in 22:45.
