Carter Norton, a 5th grader from Green Meadow, won the 4th annual Barrett Memorial Run on October 22 at Columbia High School. He finished the Mixed 13 and Under race in 19:57, less than a second ahead of Bell Top’s Amar Cintron.
Mike Ruger won the Mixed Adult race with a time of 19:20.
Approximately 70 people participated in the 2.7 mile run despite the rainy weather. This event honors the late Dennis Barrett who taught social studies and coached cross country. Proceeds from the event support the Barrett Memorial Scholarship which is given to two graduating seniors on the Columbia Cross Country team.
The event is sponsored by the Columbia Cross Country program and the East Greenbush Education Foundation.
