It is hard to imagine how Friday afternoon’s District 2-AAAAA Cross Country Championship could have gone better for the ‘Topper Cross Country team. 
Both the Boys and Girls teams achieved a perfect score, the boys taking the first nine places and the girls the first six places (nine are allowed to run at the District Championship instead of the usual seven, but the top-5 score).
