Cross country in the Little Hawkeye Conference will also be a little more competitive when Dallas Center-Grimes competes alongside our local schools. Pella High head coach, Doug Cutler says that he has watched and “scouted” both the boys’ and girls’ teams for D-C-G and has seen the team develop and should raise the level competition in the conference significantly. Cutler says that on the girls’ side, the Fillies will present an immediate challenge, and the Mustangs are very deep on the boys’ side. Cutler’s noticed that if one of D-C-G’s boys in their top seven for any reason drops out, someone fills their shoes very well. Pella’s first meet is at Cedar Rapids Prairie on August 31.
