M70 Kent Brown takes handicap 200 at Bobby Lane Invite in Texas

Wayne Bennett reports from Texas on the latest edition of the 200-meter age-graded handicap exhibition at the Bobby Lane Invitational at UT Arlington. Wayne, now 80, won last year. On Saturday, the victor was Dr. Kent Brown, 72, who ran 145.3 meters in 19.47. Second was Matt Pace, 62, 154.6 in 20.60, then Marcus Santi, 45, 178.7 in 21.47. Fourth was Lindy Raney, 58, 163.2 in 21.61. Fifth was Reggie Garner, 56, 165.4 in 22.33, with Wayne in sixth — 127.1 in 22.46. Seventh was Gary Tannehill, 59, 162.1 in 23.92. “We think this is a great opportunity to show college athletes and their parents what older athletes can do and maybe encourage someone to join us,” Wayne writes. “Last year’s race encouraged Gary Tannehill to start competing in masters track. We really enjoy this race.”

Lucky seven who took part in annual Bobby Lane Invitational handicap 200 from left were: Marcus Santi, Reggie Garner, Gary Tannehill, Lindy Raney, Matt Pace, Kent Brownm and Wayne Bennett.
