1991 JohnnyCake Jog

The news-herald just published photos from the 1990 Johnnycake Jog. I remember that it was hot and that there were many in the 5-mile field who ran under or very near 24:00, led by John Scherer's 23:26 (Blue singlet behind #1231).

I recognize Chris Rupe (5), Ted Rupe (1), Henry Covetta (31), Jerry Fresenko (1231).

I think #28 on the right is Shannon Ritchie (sp?) who finished 2nd

I recognize #774 but can't remember his name (Brad ?)

#7 & #11 ran very well, but I don't know their names.

Who do you recognize?

Here's the News-Herald link for all the photos. They aren't in any specific order, but there are some great ones.

Mr. Slippery will become famous soon enough
It's bib #26, not 28, but I think you are correct about it being Shannon Ritchie. He is wearing an OU Cross Country tank top in the awards photos.

Bib #36, which you can't see clearly in the above shot, but you can see in a few other starting line shots (dark bushy-haired man behind #10 in the shot above) looks like Jeff Hlinka who was a solid masters runner, IIRC. Check out the right side of photo 55 in the gallery for a better look at him.

Fresenko currently coaches at Louisville HS. I never realized he was a Mentor guy until I looked at some past state XC meet results last night.

In this photo I am seeing:

#10 - Dr. Eric Ashton of Mentor, multiple All American @ Malone
#11 - Dr. Andy Herr - Berea(?) and NC State. Runner up to Bob Mau 1st year OSHAA had 5K CC (1982?)
Behind Herr's right shoulder is one of the Franek Bros. I'm guessing Tom.
#774 - Brad Ingram
#7 - Frank Zoldak of Midpark and Ritchie's team mate at OU.
Behind Zoldak's right shoulder is Dr. Mike Bunsey (RIP) also of OU.
#18 - Looks like John Nakel

A young Fred Kieser in the chase pack here in blue shorts, no shirt.

Better view of Franek here, #15

Kieser, multiple Olympic Trials qualifier in marathon, again here - behind and to left of Zoldak, 2 back from Ingram.

The tall guy on the left with the white headband in the 2nd/3rd row is Kevin Landis (New London HS) who was a DIII runner at Case from 1986-1990.

The black guy just to the left of #1 Ted Rupe is Charles Woods....a Glenville Grad (?) in the early 70,s and long time road racer...You can’t see me because I’m already 200 yards in front of the field (lol)..
