Devine XC Invitational rained out

Although the rain was not all that bad Saturday morning at Devine Golf Course, Friday afternoon’s decision to postpone the Devine Cross Country Invitational until Wednesday, September 26 was made in everyone’s best interest. With over 600 competitors expected, too many buses full of kids getting on the road in the early morning hours in predicted heavy downpours around the area was simply too big of a risk to take.
The meet is rescheduled for Wednesday, September 26.
