The Warwick Valley Middle School Mileage Club had another successful Friday Night Lights Half Mile Run under the lights this year on Fri., Oct. 6 thanks to the 17 runners who participated from the Warwick Valley Middle School.
During halftime of the varsity Warwick H.S. football game against Minisink, Mileage Club runners ran 800-meters, which are two laps around the track. All runners did a great job, whether someone runs a five minute half mile or a two minute half mile, it is still a half mile.
Special congratulations to the top boy and girl in the sixth grade: Hunter Stuart (first overall with a time of 2:40 mintues) and Siobhan Kelly (fourth overall with a time of three minutes). The top runner for the fifth grade was Ashley Fitzgerald (11th place with a time of 3:26 minutes).
Special thanks goes to Coach Potter and Coach Akacki for their help; the Warwick girls’ cross country team for helping with the finish line; the parents; and Mrs. Brady, the club advisor, who helped make our race, finish line and photos all successful.
Thanks again and always remember that when you can’t run with your feet anymore, run with your heart.
