Congratulations to the cross country team. They were very successful at their meet last night in Fairview. Both teams had a perfect score of 15. This is the lowest score a cross country team can have in a meet. It is achieved by placing runners in the top five places in the race. The teams run next Tuesday at Buckner Park starting at 4 pm. We want to offer an invitation to all of the faculty, staff, and students here at DMS to come watch these athletes in action. There is no admission fee for the meet. The weather will be beautiful, and the races will be over in about 45 minutes. Hope to see all of you there!
