The North Dallas cross country teams closed out the regular season on Saturday at the Flying Hawks Invitational at Tarrant County College’s Northeast campus in Hurst.
The Bulldogs were led by Francisco Sanchez and Adan Galvan with the top boys times while Fatima Rincon and Diana Romero had the top girls times.
North Dallas faced some the best competition it has faced all season on Saturday. The top five North Dallas boys finished right behind each other.
Both teams — boys and girls — were missing some of their top runners because of SAT testing on Saturday.
But North Dallas Coach Troy Power expects to have everybody present for the District 12-5A meet on Tuesday at Norbuck Park.
The Bulldogs will be facing tough competition from Adamson, Woodrow and Bryan Adams at the district meet.
The top 10 runners and top three teams advance to the UIL regional meet on Monday, Oct. 23, at Lynn Creek Park in Grand Prairie. The regional meet is hosted by UT-Arlington.
