The Shelbyville Dragons and Lady Dragons Junior High Cross Country Teams pulled off a sweep of the championship at the District 22 Cross Country Meet last Wednesday at Lake Naconiche. The Junior High Dragon Boys team made school history by being the first Boys Cross Country Team at any level to win a District Championship. And with the Girls also winning the District Title, this is the first time in Shelbyville Junior High history that the Dragons and Lady Dragons have swept the championships.
Timpson Jr. High Cross Country participant Sadie Ramsey took the girls’ district championship with a time of 10:29. She was more than 20 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor. Timpson had 73 from high school through junior high taking part.
