Varsity Softball Team Runs in Redmen 5K


The high school’s varsity softball team competed in the East Islip Athletic Booster Club’s annual Redmen 5K race at Heckscher State Park on Nov. 6. The event serves to raise funds for the five scholarships awarded by the Booster Club each year to graduating seniors.

Sophomore Allison Dell’Orto had the fastest time on the team, finishing the route in just over 26 minutes. Six-year-old Jayde McGowan, the team manager, was the youngest finisher, completing the race in just over 34 minutes. Several team members who were unable to run volunteered their time directing the runners during the race.
