Men's Cross Country (back row) placed 6th at the 2016 District Championship
At the Men's Cross Country District Championship, junior Bo Ivey 's 12th place finish in the field of 84 runners with a time of 17:33 automatically qualified him for next week's Regional Championship. As a team, DP placed sixth of ten competing teams, just outside the top five that earn automatic qualification for the next round. Josh Matzner's time of 17:53 placed him 16th followed by Jacob Matzner at 18:27 (28th), Anthony Venturini at 18:59 (36th), Adam Fulmore in 19:02 (38th), Matt Merriman in 19:06 (40th), Alaric Ruiz in 20:26 (69th) and Kevin McGrath in 21:07 (78th). Individually, the top 15 runners advance, so Ivey will be DP's representative at the Regional Championship in Gainesville next Saturday.
