Pope places fifth in Brentwood 5K event

| Wednesday, July 18, 2012, 12:11 p.m.

Upon further review, it was discovered that Brentwood resident Andrew Pope ended up in fifth place among male runners in this year's Brentwood Firecracker 5K Run.

Pope, 25, crossed the finish line in 21:41 to trail only Sam Shea (19:48), Brandon Focer (20:21), Matt Fondiler (21:18) and Matthew Hawk (21:26) in the borough competition of the 5K race.

Pope placed 23rd overall in the male 25-29 age division, slightly behind Fondiler and Hawk.

Nick Pazuchanics, 15, was listed as the fifth-place finisher in last week's column. Pazuchanics, however, is not a Brentwood resident.

The leading female runners from the borough in this year's race were Emily Ianachione (22:00), Callee Suvak (24:23), Abby Dehler (25:30), Erica Medina (26:10) and Judith Dominici (26:31).
