Angel Rojas Wins Westhampton Beach Hurricane 5K; Jorge Flores Captures Triple Crown

Hampton Bays’ Angel Rojas, 22, won Saturday's Hurricane 5K in Westhampton Beach in 17 minutes, 23 seconds.

Other Latinos with terrific outings, include: Water Mill’s Doroteo Soledad, 33, who won the Quogue Hudsy 5K a week earlier, netting fourth place in 18:23; and 37 year old Jorge Flores (East Hampton) with a 7th place showing at 18:33.

Flores won the Hamptons Triple Crown with the best overall performance in the season's 5K competitions: 7th at the Hurricane, 4th at the Hudsy, and a 16th at the Koziarz. (Rojas did not compete in the Koziarz - a race won by NYC/Mexico's Antonio Blas, 23, with a time of 16:34.)

Twelve-year-old Isabella Torres of Westhampton was first across the line in the 12-and-under group (24:26).
