BOSTON, Mass. – A Tekoa native won the Boston Marathon’s Women’s Wheelchair Division on Monday, April 17.
Having placed in the Top 5 in the division on previous Boston Marathons, Susannah Scaroni, 31, cruised to victory with more than 5 minutes to spare.

Scaroni’s best finishes previously were second in 2018 and third in 2014, 2015 and 2017, and fourth in 2016.
This year’s win wasn’t easy; she had to fix a loose wheel on the route.
