After a remarkable 2017 season where the Dawson County High School boys’ cross country team won its third straight regional and took second place honors at state, Coach Charles Beusse knows that continuing that success will not be easy. "I often tell the kids, the work required to stay on top is often harder than the work it required to get there,” he said. This attitude is reflected in the voluntary summer conditioning sessions. "We have had very good turnouts at our summer conditions sessions this summer and all of our runners look improved and fit,” Beusse said.
