Dodgeland High School Cross Country

Note from Cross Country Coach of the Year Barry Smanz

I would like to thank the Badgerland Striders for the “Striders Give Back” $300 grant to the Dodgeland High School Boys & Girls Cross Country Teams.

We draw from some low-income areas.

My school budget for equipment and supplies for both High School and Middle School Boys and Girls is $100 per year Total.  We will put this money to good use.

I have coached Cross Country at Dodgeland for 45 Years and I am also a long time Strider member.

Note:  Dodgeland Won the 2107 WIAA Division 3 State Championships.  Photos below of the winning girls and the Coach of the Year Award.

Future notes will be published here.
