A day of excitement has been cooled down in the world of high school cross country as mother nature has yet again left her mark.


The thirteen team cross country meet, which was to be hosted by Dallas Center-Grimes, has been postponed due to weather. The meet includes the teams of Atlantic, Carlisle, Creston, Des Moines Christian, Des Moines East, Earlham, Johnston, Kuemper Catholic, Norwalk, Van Meter, Winterset, and host DC-G has now been moved to Thursday, August 30.


The race times are still scheduled to be similar with the girls race to begin at 5:10 p.m. Thursday while the boys race will commence Thursday at 5:45 p.m. The awards will still be given out at 6:25 p.m.
