1W) Kristina Rovtar 6.5, daughter of Rene Rovtar reports Geoff Esper won the men’s division with 45 hot dogs. From the picture, it appears there was at least one female entrant, so “uncontested” failed to defend the women’s division.

Geoff Esper is the favorite in the men’s division. We will see if “Uncontested” defends her Taste of Syracuse qualifier title in the women’s division.
