Earlier in the day, the first annual Turkey5 5K and 5-mile road races attracted a total of about 1,600 runners, who started and ended in Linden Square. Congrats to Carol Chaoui and team for putting on a successful event that raised tens of thousands of dollars to fight cancer and help feed the hungry. Wellesley High alum Bijan Mazaheri finished first in the 5-mile race at a 5:06 pace, while the top female finisher, Alice Binns, zipped along at a 6:01 pace. In the 5K race, Wellesley High’s Danny Palladino raced home first at a 5:22 pace, while the top female finisher was Alexandra Krieg, who finished at a 6:34 pace.Wellesley turkey trot

On Wednesday, Wellesley High’s Powderpuff team of high school girls dropped its game to the Needham High girls 21-0 in what you can see was an entirely clean game. Wellesley police officers coached the team and there are lots more photos at Wellesley PD Photo.
