What a beautiful day and great turn out for our 1ST ANNUAL FAMILY/ALUMNI 5K RACE. We had 92 registered runners on the line for the race. For the record, that stands as the 4th largest since I started the Matt Kauffman 5k 17 years ago! Thank you all that ran in the race.

I also want to once again thank all of the parents who stepped up with all of the refreshments. We really appreciate your generosity.

Another shout out goes to coach Alex Phillip for bringing back several of our past XC runners (Conner McIntyre, Sean O’Brien, Shane Kelliher, Patrick White, Matt Sollenberger and Jon Jackson). It was great to see all of them again.
