Johanna Fickenscher Sept 2008 NH.jpgJune 28, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — Johanna L. Fickenscher, a 2006 graduate of DePauw University, won the women's division of yesterday's Strawberry Festival 5-Mile Road Race in South Berwick, Maine. The Portsmouth Herald notes today that her time of 31:47 was "good for 10th place overall."

"It was pretty humid, so I just tried to push the whole time," Fickenscher tells the newspaper. "I just wanted to survive the uphills and blast through the downhills."

Dan Doyon writes, "Fickenscher graduated from Division III DePauw University (Greencastle, Ind.) in 2006 and ran for the University of New Hampshire track team as a East College Panorama.jpggraduate student in 2007. She ran this year's Boston Marathon in 4:04:11."
