| Despain, Duquette,
While the course was slick in places, that did not prevent
Doug Blanchard from setting a new age record or from Hans Despain recording his first
Snowstorm win. Hans was followed home by masters winner Richard Clark with Jim Lyons
edging out Jason Reed for 3rd. Jason had led the race for awhile, having
charged with Brian Goddu from the gun across the ice packed path.
Having placed third in the first two races of
the series it was finally Betsy Duquette turn to capture the women's title. In so
doing she was also the first master. Betsy was followed home by Deb Bercovici in 2nd
and fellow Harrier, Mary Misiaszek in 3rd.
