4/2/2003: Dockstader, Bray top national records!!

From Jill Geer of the USATF National office:
Three American records fell in the 3,000-meter race walk as 70-year-old Jack Bray of Green Brae, Calif., posted a time of 16:07.47 in the men's 70-74 group, while 76-year-old Edward Gawinski of Wilmington, Delaware, clocked 18:27.14 in the men's 75-79. On the women's side, 70-year-old Shirley Dockstader of Mill Valley, Calif., walked 19:08.86 to break the AR in the women's 70-74.

USATF Pacific Adds:
Three other local walkers made the journey to Boston. Dick Petruzzi of Carmichael was second to Bray in the men's 70-74 division with a time of 17:02.61. In a furious finish, he edged Alfred DuBois of Wisconsin by two hundredths of a second. Both Petruzzi and DuBois bettered the old American record.

Ann Gerhardt of Sacramento took time off from directing the upcoming 20K championship to place second in the women's 50-54 division. Her time was 17:05.72. Ed Lane of Mill valley placed 3rd in the men's 65-69 division with a time of 18:48. Congratulations to all our Pacific walkers!
