On Saturday, October 29, the DGS girls cross country team will travel to Midlothian Meadows forest preserve in Midlothian, IL for the IHSA Marist Sectional meet. This meet will determine which teams qualify for the IHSA State Championship meet. There will be 19 teams competing, and the top 5 teams will advance to the State meet.
The Mustangs are the top ranked girls team entered in Saturday’s race, but competition will be fierce among the first 4-5 teams. According to the DyeStatIL final regular season rankings, DGS is ranked #6 in the state. They are followed closely by #7 Lyons Township, #8 Hinsdale Central, #12 Lockport, and #25 Plainfield North. Unranked teams Marist, Oak Park-River Forest, and Plainfield South will also be in contention for state qualification.
The girls should arrive at DGS by 7:15 am. The bus is scheduled to leave at 7:30 am. Our race will go off at 10:00 am, followed by the boys race at 11:00 am. The awards ceremony will take place at approximately 12:00 pm.
The Mustangs will attempt to win their 3rd sectional title in the last 6 years, but most importantly, qualify the team to run next week at State! #goMustangs
