Elias makes it 4 in a row

Four in a row and counting. Friendship Christian School seventh grader Hope Elias came home in 19:40 winning the women's division of Saturday's 13th annual Sherry's Run 5K.

A 12 year-old, Elias won the event for the fourth consecutive year in a time that was some 16 seconds slower than her 2015 winning effort.

Proving youth will be served, 13 year-old Aiden Britt, an eighth grader at Tuckers Crossroads, was the men's overall winner in a time of 18:08.

First across the line was Freed Hardeman University freshman and FCS graduate Tyler Alverson, a late entry who opted to run the course without a timing chip.

Lebanon's Ashlee Chance, 41, won the women's masters division with a time of 21:59.

Don Poston of Murfreesboro, 50, won the men's masters division with a time of 19:19.

More Hope -- After winning Sherry's Run, Elias was whisked away to Cedars of Lebanon State Park where she won the Wilson County Invitational, a middle school race. Elias won the two-mile event with a time of 12:61.
