Gobbler 5K Grows into a Tradition

By Ellen Oliver
For years Nashoba graduates met up on Thanksgiving morning on the bleachers surrounding a football field as Nashoba and North Middlesex took to the gridiron. But the Sixth Annual Stow Gobbler 5K officially wins the reunion race, bringing together former Chieftains and Stow community members two hours before football kick off.
“My favorite part is seeing old high school friends and checking in on the high school team,” said Miles Hodge, a 2012 Nashoba graduate and Gobbler runner.
The Gobbler was founded by avid runners Nick and Alex Papanastassiou when they were in high school as a way to help their mom participate in a Thanksgiving race closer to home. Now college seniors, the brothers proved they haven’t lost a step, crossing the line at 9th (Nick, 18:45.9) and 11th (Alex, 18:47.0), along with former event organizers Abby Hurd at 12th overall and the top female finisher (18:50.14) and Allie Allaire crossing at 59th (21:37.8).

By Jordana Bieze Foster

Nashoba Regional will defend its Division 2 Super Bowl title this Saturday at Gillette Stadium, after a 21-0 playoff victory over Holy Name on Tuesday night that extended the Chieftains’ winning streak to 25 games.

“It feels good,” said head coach Ken Tucker, “but we’ve got one more game to go.”

In the Super Bowl, scheduled to start at 11 am, the top-seeded Chieftains (12-0) will face 3rd seed Shepherd Hill (10-2), which beat 2nd seed Doherty 34-8 on Tuesday night. The title game will be a rematch of last year’s playoff semifinal, in which the Chieftains defeated the Fighting Rams 35-14.
