This is the first year for the Navajo Cross Country program. Girl’s basketball coach, David Doss, is using this time of the year wisely by having his players run cross country in the mornings before school. The results of the Navajo runners at the Hinton and Cache meets show Navajo to be more than just a baseball/basketball school.
