Many of the North Dallas High cross country runners turned in their best times of the season on Tuesday at the District 12-5A meet at Norbuck Park. But it just wasn’t enough on this day.
The girls varsity team and the boys varsity team both finished fifth in their divisions. Molina won the girls division and Woodrow Wilson won the boys division. The top three teams and the top 10 runners advanced to regionals on Oct. 23 in Grand Prairie.
