Wiregrass Wobble Turkey Trot officials recently presented a $700 check to the Wiregrass Ranch High (WRH) cross country teams, winners in the newly established team school competition at the yearly event.
At the third annual Wiregrass Wobble Turkey Trot 5K, held on Thanksgiving Day at the Shops of Wiregrass mall, the Bulls runners logged the fastest average time of any high school in the boys category (19 minutes, 11 seconds) for the 3.1-mile race.
WRH also won with the most number of participants with 38 runners. For winning both categories, the cross country program, coached by Don Howard, won the $700.
The check was presented to Coach Howard and his runners by Rotary Club of New Tampa (RCNT) president Lesley Zajac, RCNT secretary Craig DiCecco and FITniche (the running and fitness store in the mall) general manager Brian Brink, who all helped organize the yearly event.
