Saturday’s 10th annual Waterloo Optimist 5K Run and Walk featured some new winners mixed with some old blood.

Six-time winner Larry Huffman won the men’s race in 16:19. Huffman is a teacher and the cross country coach at Waterloo High School.

Waterloo Junior High School cross country coach Taylor Sebestik finished second in 17:39.

Four members of Coach Sebestik’s cross country team claimed the top four spots in the women’s division.
