Kalkaska’s Thorington Leaving for Opportunity in Saginaw

KALKASKA – Kalkaska athletics will have someone new in charge.

The Blazers’ athletic director, Justin Thorington, announced that he accepted a position downstate.

Thorington will now be the district athletic director and Heritage High School assistant principal for Saginaw Township Community Schools.

“I’d want to thank them first, I mean, since day one this entire community, the school community, the community at large, the students and the coaches and the teachers have been welcoming and supportive and I would hope that they would give that same support to the next athletic director that comes here at the high school,” said Thorington.

Kalkaska has not yet announced who the new athletic director will be.
