Jan. 11, 2005 – Fifteen year old Juan Robles, a sophomore at the St. Croix Educational Complex High, is the premier middle-distance high school runner in the Virgin Islands. He is unbeaten by any other school runner on the road and in cross-country.

In a battle for the masters title, Sen. Louis Hill finished first in the masters category and fifth male overall in 5:40; Teddy Seymour was second in the masters in 5:44 and sixth overall; Mike Hill was the third masters and sixth-place male in 6:58; Sen.
