Large turnout for annual Turkey Trot at MS

A little rain and mud didn’t slow down the hundreds of participants in the annual middle school Turkey Trot.


The race, held on Nov. 5, featured students in grades 5-8 along with a number of teachers.


The 1.5-mile course started just outside the auditorium and wrapped around several athletic fields before finishing back near the starting line. After finishing the race, students got to enjoy apple cider and apples.


The race is directed by health teacher Richard Lenahan.


Eighth-graders Hunter Herrington and Avery Mack were the first male and female finishers from the entire school.
