The two winners of the 2017 Whitehall Borough 5K Race (and one-mile fun walk) were top competitors in the Baldwin track and field program this spring.

Casey Conboy, 18, crossed the finish line in first place — as he has done regularly in recent years — in 17 minutes, 49 seconds, almost four minutes faster than the second-place finisher.

The leading female runner was 16-year-old Devon Schroeder, who placed seventh in 23:16, almost three minutes faster than the runner-up.

The top five runners among male competitors consisted of Conboy, Andrew Barrett, 11; Doug Stephens, 42; Rob Polinsky, 45; and Jim Kaufman, 56.

Schroeder was followed in the female division by Kristine Pisarcik, 30; Teresa Lucchetti, 33; Rebekah Priano, 12; and Kierstianna Ballard, 17.
