By David Freeze

For the Salisbury Post

Runners and walkers in the Teens With a Mission Splash Run 5K were treated to a “wall of water” on Fulton Street and well-aimed garden hose shots as they approached the finish line on Friday evening.

A close battle between Carson High School runner Garrett Ingold and Catawba College Cross Country Coach Jason Bryan ended as Ingold took the win with a time of 16 minutes and 51 seconds. Bryan finished just two seconds back in 16:53. Michael Thomas was third in 19:03.

Acquawon Stallworth paced the women with a time of 22 minutes and 27 seconds. Faith Faller was second in 22:42 and Florelay Brown took third in 23:01.

Steve Bullock paced the master’s men with a time of 21:57 while Elizabeth Murphy led the master’s women in 24:08. Christian Kluttz took the win in the fun run in 2 minutes and 56 seconds.

The sponsors for the TWAM 5K and fun run included Gordon and Carolyn Hurley, Gerry Hurley, Power Curbers, Salisbury Pediatrics, Cloninger Ford, Coastal Carolina Insurance Agency, Fisher Realty, Dr. Kathleen Boyd, Dr. William Streiff, Bob and Sara Cook, Novant Health, and Brien and Laura Lewis.
