Lakehill Preparatory School’s 23rd annual TREK for TECH, held on Saturday, November 6, combined chilly weather, two races, record-breaking times, dedicated sponsors and enthusiastic volunteers. The results were a great time for all who attended, and funds raised to purchase new technology.
Students, families, and faculty members put their best foot forward in the one-mile Fun Run, while record numbers competed in the 5K chip-timed race. Over 400 people registered for this year’s races, an all-time high. The TREK Committee is still counting the monies raised through sponsorship, registration, and technology purchases, but anticipates another budget-breaking total.
Senior Cullen McCaleb was the first place overall winner with a time of 16:29, breaking the TREK course record for men. Junior Avery Owen broke the TREK course record for the women with a time of 19:15.
The class competitions were close this year with the 3rd grade class coming in 1st place winning the Chick-Fil-A party in the courtyard. The 11th grade class came in 2nd place and the 5th grade class came in 3rd place.
The Pasta Lunch was held on Friday. Diners enjoyed pasta and pizza, sponsored by Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. The TREK Committee thanks those companies, individuals, and families who supported the race through underwriting and equipment purchases, and the faculty, and parent volunteers who helped the event run smoothly.
A huge Lakehill thanks John and Karen Owen for chairing this event again and for their efforts in making TREK for TECH a huge success!
