The Dawson County High School Tigers boys and girls cross country teams traveled to Carrollton on Nov. 3 to participate in the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) State Tournament. Each team placed sixth overall marking the fourth consecutive top-10 finish for both teams. Junior Ben McGinnis earned All-State honors with an overall ninth place finish with a time of 17:00:35 to lead the way for the men’s team. “McGinnis had a fantastic day on Saturday running 17:00 on a very tough course,” said Head Coach Charles Beusse. “He will return as one of the best in AAA next season and be one of the key leaders for the team.” Seniors Cody Wood, Will Mulberry and Nico Poston along with sophomores Wiley Dennis and Brenden Swafford all posted times of less than 20 minutes to round out the scoring and push the team to their sixth-place finish.
