Outdoor Track & Field Hosts South African Runners
contributed by WHS Athletic Director Bobby Rushton
On Friday, April 21, eight South African runners from La Rochelle High School in Paarl, South Africa arrived in Wilton and were hosted by a few Wilton families during their stay. The girls were here to compete in the PENN relays and also attended Wilton’s match with the Warriors against Darien.
This event previously took place pre-COVID and returned again this year. Allison Lombardi was the lead parent and Coaches Gee and Gerweck provided the visiting team access to track and facilities to train during their stay.
Pictured below is the team with their Coach Andre Van Der Burgh on Tuesday, April 25 at WHS.
