Bulldogs’ fall seasons come to a close

Boys CC team advances to semi-state





Boys Cross Country

The boys cross country team advanced all the way to Semi State after fighting hard at Sectionals and Regionals. At Sectionals they had a combined team score of 80 and placed third. At the Regional they had a combined total of 129 points and also placed third.
