Upper Darby Cross Country Take Central League Champs

This Saturday the Upper Darby Girls' and Boys' Cross Country teams went at it again at Rose Tree Park for the 2015 Central League Championships, facing eleven other schools including Springfield, Harriton, Radnor, etc. It was a brisk day, but that didn't discourage the two teams. The day resulted in numerous personal bests, season bests, as well as course bests.

Congratulations to the Girls' Cross Country Team in receiving the Central League Alumni Girls Cross Country Sportsmanship Award for the second consecutive year!
