Unlike the varsity rosters for almost all other Dawson County High School sports, the team roster for the cross country team is determined with a time trial prior to every race. This means that the team can be different for each race, although this rarely happens. “Usually, your varsity team is made up of the top seven runners,” Head Coach Charles Beusse said as he explained how the team would be built for the upcoming competition at Chestatee High School on Aug. 28. “For some reason it is the top 10 runners for this event.” Beusse went on to explain that the scoring in cross country is “much like golf” in that the lower the score, the better.
