Almost 200 runners and walkers braved the autumn wind chill to turn out for the third annual ORR Bulldog Dash on Saturday, November 24. The dash was held to raise funds for the purchase of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for the athletic department as well as to purchase equipment for the Cross Country teams. The dash was divided out into four races, a 100-yard dash for the pre-kindergarten crowd, a 400-yard dash for kids up to the sixth grade, the main event a two-mile run, and for those who wanted a little lighter fare a two mile walk.
In the male event Nephi Tyler of Fairhaven won out with an amazing time of 10:11, Scott Anderson of New Bedford was close behind at 10:19, followed by Daniel Croteau of Acushnet at 10:39. On the ladies side Alice Binns of Dorchester placed first with a time of 11:39, followed by Julie Craig of Mattapoisett at 12:27, and Lynn Vasconcelos of Fairhaven in third with a time of 12:51.
