The GRCC Fitness Team made its Triple Crown Series running debut last Saturday at the Irish Jig 5K held in East Grand Rapids. GRCC finished in 9th place out of 46 teams in Division I. Susan Hill (Nursing) led the team scoring followed by Whitney Johnson (Counseling), Chris Allen (Job Placement), Steve Ender (Prez Office), and Alejandro Saldivar (Mathematics). Chris posted our lowest time with a 19:29 clip through the snowy conditions. Also running for the team were Steve Beauclair (spouse of Gilda Gely), Ric Underhile (Instructional Support & Interdisciplinary Studies), Mike Schavey (Academic Service Learning), Lisa Dopke (College Advancement), David Anderson (LRTS). Bill Ouchark (LRTS), and Jim Fox (HR). Irish Jig individual and Triple Crown Team results can seen at

The Jig is the first of three Triple Crown Series races. The next race is the Brian Diemer 5K in Cutlerville on June 12. The last race is the Reeds Lake Run 5K on June 26. Although the Triple Crown competition limits team roster eligibility to full time staff and spouses, all GRCC staff including part time employees are welcomed to join the Fitness Team.
