DCHS Lady Demons cross country take 2nd in Salina

Special to the Globe

The Dodge City High School Lady Demons cross country team competed in the Salina Invitational on Saturday.

The Lady Demons came up short to the Maize South Mavs for the third time this year, finishing 2nd in the 10 school meet. The team was again led by Serenity Larson in 5th place and Norma Rodriguez in 10th.

The next outing for the team will be the Western Athletic Conference championship to be hosted by Liberal High School on Thursday.

“We are now entering the championship portion of our season with WAC, regional and state coming up," said coach Brian Lenz. “We are in position to give ourselves a chance to win WAC. The meet should be a close one as we have split with Great Bend on the season and Hays has been close behind. I’m looking for a competitive and exciting race on Thursday.”
