ConVal Staff Compete, Win In Abbott 5K Race

The tenth Peter Michael Abbott Memorial 5K race took place on Saturday, September 14, at ConVal Regional High School.

Three staff members — Dean of Students Steve Bartsch, Director of Special Education Michael Lucow, and ATC teacher Sarah Grossi — each placed in their respective division. Social Studies teacher Eric Bowman was the overall winner of the race with a time of 21:58.

The Peter Michael Abbott Memorial Fund was founded in 2010 as a non-profit, volunteer-led organization to raise funds for an annual academic scholarship awarded to graduates of ConVal Regional High School who pursue advanced education.

Peter Abbott was a 1979 graduate of ConVal high school who died unexpectedly of a massive heart attack in 2009. Having lettered in Baseball, Basketball, and Soccer, he was a posthumous, inaugural inductee into the ConVal Regional High School Athletic Hall of Fame on June 5, 2011.
