Thanksgiving morning marks the start of the eighth annual Spartan Turkey Trot, the only race ever approved to run on the streets of Mountain View.

The race – which starts and finishes at Mountain View High and also includes nearby streets – is the brainchild of Mike Mulkey, former assistant coach of the Spartans’ boys basketball team. The turkey trot has grown from approximately 100 participants in 2010 to nearly 1,200 last year.

Lancers whip Wilcox in CCS opener

St. Francis High’s Darrell Page, trying to break a tackle against Wilcox, scored five touchdowns Friday.

Only Darrell Page’s name will appear in the St. Francis High football record book for rushing for five touchdowns Friday in the Lancers’ 51-27 playoff rout of Wilcox, but it really was a team effort.

St. Francis’ offensive line, tight ends and fullbacks cleared the way for Page – often opening humongous holes for him to run through – while receivers held their blocks downfield to help the speedy junior get past the last line of defense.
