Members of the DMS 8th Grade cross country team take off at the beginning of the race.

The 8th grade Colts prepped for their final meet of the season last Wednesday competing in Devine’s pre-district invitational. The District Meet is in Devine on Wednesday, October 16.
Jesse House placed 20th of 64 runners with a time of 15:50. Jaiden Alvarez finished in the top 30 as well at 29th with a 16:19.
