Falcons ‘Tough’ It Out for Vets


A six-man team from the high school – students Calo Arena, Trevor Bernard, Jack Dillon, Phil Herbst and Nick Olsen, accompanied by the school’s band director, Jerry Cannarozzo – traveled to Vermont’s Mount Snow on June 7 to participate in the Tough Mudder obstacle course race.

A team-oriented, 10-mile race, Tough Mudder is designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Through competing, the Falcons team raised several hundred dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity that helps combat veterans wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
