Woman stuns field in Applegate win

BY DON HUNT

RUCH

-- The male runners didn't pay much attention to Rosa Gutierrez at the start of Saturday's Applegate Valley Run at Cantrall-Buckley Park.

But she got their attention once the starting gun went off.

Gutierrez, a former standout at Glendale High School and the University of Oregon, won the 10-kilometer event in 35 minutes, 55.06 seconds. She is believed to be the first female runner to win a 10K event in the Rogue Valley that involved more than just a few runners.

Fifty-four participants crossed the finish line.

I led for the first half of the race and I kept asking myself, `When is this lady going to back off,' said Eagle Point's Rick DeVos.

I couldn't shake her and then, boom, she blew past with about three miles to go. I thought, well, I'm going to let her go rather than try to stick with her and die.

Jed Baures of Jacksonville finished second in 36:28.21 and DeVos was third in 36:47.90.

The second woman to cross the finish line was Shannon Sherrill, who was 13th overall in 45:04.35.

Gutierrez, 35, is a past state champion at Glendale and finished third in the 3,000 meters at the 1982 NCAA meet while competing for Oregon. She suffered a serious hamstring injury several years ago and only recently began to run again competitively.

Gutierrez now lives in San Jose, Calif., where she is a middle school teacher and running coach.
