The Dawson County High School varsity cross country teams participated in the 2018 Coach Benson Double Dip Invitational at Marist High School Sept. 8 and faced off with championship caliber teams from across northeast Georgia. According to its website, the Double Dip invitational has produced eight finalists in either the Foot Locker Nationals or the Nike Cross Nationals (both races designed to encourage national competition amongst high school cross country athletes) from seven different state programs. With all seven of those programs participating in the race, it looked to be a tough day for the Tigers on the 4,920-meter course but both teams rose to the challenge. Each produced a runner that finished in the top three individually, and those performances led to a fifth-place finish overall for the men and an eighth-place finish overall for the women.
