DCHS girls cross country take first in McPherson

Special to the Globe

The Dodge City High School cross country team attended the McPherson Invitational on Thursday.

Traditionally the varsity would be at either Stillwater, Okla. for the OSU Jamboree or Lawrence for the Rim Rock Classic and the junior varsity would attend the Goddard Invitational this week.

Due to COVID-19 concerns those three meets were all cancelled and the team was able to get in the McPherson meet.

The Lady Demons took first in the 10-school meet, defeating 2nd place Hays by 13 points.

The team was led by Serenity Larson picking up her 3rd individual title on the season followed by Norma Rodriguez in 2nd and Daisy Orozco in 8th.

In the JV race the DCHS ladies finished 2nd behind Hays. The top 10 placers in JV were Isabel Sandoval in 4th and Vanessa Rivero in 9th.

The next outing for the DCHS cross country team will be the Newton Invitational on Oct. 3.
