Fifth and sixth graders ran in a practice cross country race this afternoon at Dana Hall. Tenacre’s cross-country team was formed this year after students expressed strong interest in competing as a team. Tenacre’s team of 16 boys and girls competed against the Dana Hall middle school team on a 1.8-mile course that meandered through the Dana Hall campus. Tenacre coach Stephen Jette commended the Dana Hall team for acting as mentors to the new Tenacre runners in their first meet and for cheering on all Tenacre runners at the end of the race. Tenacre will host a meet on the Tenacre campus on November 2.
