— A year ago Rick Spann of Cranberry, N.J., claimed the annual Fred LaPann Memorial Road Race. Spann was clocked in 37 minutes, 21 seconds.

Brian Teague of Glens Falls was second in 38:08, followed by John Fisiter in 38:53.

Karen Costello of Hague claimed the women’s title, covering the challenging course in 47:17. Candi Schermerhorn of Diamond Point was second in 54:33.

Hague will host its 39th annual Winter Weekend Feb. 18 and 19.

Formerly known as the winter carnival, the event is held the weekend prior to President’s Day in Hague.

The focal point of the weekend is the town’s Beste Scholarship Fund. All proceeds will go toward the scholarship fund.

Since 1988 more than 90 Hague students have received Beste Scholarships.

In past years the Hague Winter Weekend has included the Hague Volunteer Fire Department’s annual buffet breakfast, cross country skiing, a “Fun Day” at the Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks featuring crafts, children’s games and more, snowmobile rides sponsored by the Snogoers Club, a Polar Bear Plunge, a chili cooking contest and entertainment.
