Fourth Grader is Top Finisher in Road Race
You may remember him running on behalf of the Blue Team during Field Day last June, but over Labor Day weekend 4th Grader Jason W was running in an even bigger venue. As one of 349 kids participating in the Stratton Faxon Road Race in New Haven, Jason finished in 5th place. This was particularly remarkable since the race was for athletes up to the age of 13, and Jason is only 9. Way to go, Jason!
