For Fourth Year in a Row
by: Bobby McDonald
And, they're off........
You had to be up awfully early, and you certainly had to be fast, to compete at Saturday morning's 5K Milk Run, hosted in Coleman Park. Participants ran in record times and the field of runners included former SSHS Track and Field standouts, Former Dairy Festival Queens, Former Dairy Festival Candidates, and a host of other devoted runners.
For the 4th Year in a row, it was Sulphur Bluff's Everett Wilder, who
captured the title for the event, shown here as he crosses the finish line.
And the winners were: right to left, Everett Wilder, 1st Place, Ross Hicks, 2nd place, Victor Rodriguez, 3rd Place,
and Kasie Carrell, fourth place.
Kasie Carrell, a 2007 graduate of SSHS and who has just completed military training in Florida, competed with a pulled hamstring. He
is home on leave and will be reporting for duty in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.

Allison Gideon Martin, a former Dairy Festival Candidate,
competed in Saturday's race, to mark her birthday.
1980 Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen, Lydia Walden, was joined by her husband in Saturday's 5K Milk Run.
These former SSHS Track and Field standouts had a "sort of a reunion" on Saturday morning as they
all joined together and completed the race.
Three generations of the Ramirez family joined forces to complete Saturday's 5K Milk Run.
