Get your mismatched socks ready once again because the 5th Annual 5K “Doc’s Race” is going to happen in Orange at the High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road in Orange, on Sunday, June 4 at 10 a.m.

Many local residents remember George “Doc” Whitney as a veterinarian in Orange, but in his later years, he was known for being an exceptional runner.  “Doc” started running at the age of 80 and kept at it until his death in 2013, at the age of 94.  He participated in just about every 5 K Race in Connecticut and many others throughout New England.  He was truly an inspiration for everyone!

Doc was known for wearing mismatched socks and his fluorescent orange knit cap at the town’s Chilly Chili Run 5K.

Shortly after his death, Doc’s family requested that a 5K Race and 2 Mile Fitness Walk be held in his name every year in Orange. All of the proceeds will go to the George “Doc” Whitney Memorial Scholarship Fund.

In addition to the Race and Fitness Walk, there will be two “Fun Runs” for the kids at 9:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. before the actual race.

 After May 20 and up until Race Day the fees are $27.00 for runners and $15.00 for runners under 12 and Fitness Walkers.  All of the Kid’s Fun Run registration will be $6.

Early packet pickup and Late Registration will be available at the High Plains Community Center Pavilion on Saturday, June 3rd from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Registration on the day of the Race will begin at 7:30 a.m.

For more information, call Race Director, Joe Riccio, at 203 481-7453.

Come out on June 4 and join us to help keep “Doc” Whitney’s memory alive!

It’s been a long season, but we are almost there, the Amity Spartans Baseball team shut out Fairfield Ludlowe 12-0 today in Woodbridge.

It was like a nice autumn day up on the hill, windy and cloudy – perfect baseball weather. The only ones sweating it out were the Falcons.

The game got off to a slow start with no score in the first inning.

Second inning — Ludlowe failed to score again, but Amity came alive. Colin Beaulieu and Pat Winkel brought in runners on walks and Andy Hague brought one in on a single. 3-0 Amity

Third inning — 0 for Ludlowe. Beaulieu walked and Amity scored a run. Hague hit a two-run single, Jack Nolan hit a two-run triple and Max Scheps had a one-run single. 9-0 Amity

No action in the fourth.

Fifth inning — Nolan had a one-run triple and Scheps had a one-run single. (Somewhere in there another run came in). 12-0 Amity

And that was all she wrote, neither team scored after that and Amity advances in the tournament.

Athletic Director Ernie Goodwin tweeted: “Spartans win their 27th consecutive postseason game, head back to LL semifinals.”

The Lady Spartans ended their season today in Stamford, but they had a really good run.
