A Wentzville tradition continued on October 29 when approximately 200 students from the Wentzville School District ran in the 24th Annual Turkey Trot. The event occurred at Holt High School, and was organized by the Holt Cross Country team and the Wentzville/Lake Saint Louis Optimist Club.
Open to boys and girls in Grades 4 through 6, students from ten WSD elementary schools competed this year. Winners in each division were awarded a medal and a frozen turkey to take home for Thanksgiving.
For the fifth consecutive year, a traveling team trophy was presented to Discovery Ridge Elementary, whose top three runners in each of the boys and girls divisions had the lowest combined score. For complete race results, visit the WSD website.
