The boys team continues to be the team to beat this year in our region. While we have had individuals qualify for state in the past two years (Heston Andersen in 2013 and 2014 and Nate Hanson in 2014), the entire team has a team qualification within its reach. The girls are also fighting hard to qualify for state this year. We have several girls that have stopped playing other sports when they realized how great they are at running. We wish the Cross Country Dons good luck in their upcoming meets and at state next month.
