RUNNING: Baird bests Gunsbury to win homecoming 5K


Overall winner Owen Baird was one of 75 runners who braved chilly winds and early morning traces of snow in the second annual Brainerd High School Homecoming 5-kilometer race Saturday.

Baird won with a time of 18:11, beating runner-up and previous course record holder Brent Gunsbury by just more than a minute.

Elizabeth Stokes, a junior high cross country runner, paced the female race in 21:37, shaving nine seconds off the previous record.
