The District 12-5A cross country meet is still several weeks away, but North Dallas coach Troy Power is keeping his eye on the competition.
At Saturday’s meet behind Kincaide Stadium, the Bulldogs finished third among the district teams competing in the Garey Horner Invitational meet, hosted by Molina.
“We did pretty good, but still have work to do though,” Power said in an email. “The main thing is their team time is improving.”
Natalie Chapparo finished second in 24.13 in the junior varsity division.
The girls varsity had an average time of 26:57 and the boys had an average time of 23:52, Power said.
“I thought that both did well, but can do better,” Power said.
The Bulldogs will compete Saturday at the Conrad meet, which starts at 8:30 a.m.
