Boys' Cross Country

History
Cross Country was started in 1949 at Crookston Central High School. The first coach was Meier Snell. The first few years were light on competition as Crookston was the only District and Region School competing. 1997 was the last year for Cross Country in Crookston. In 2009, Crookston entered into a co-op agreement with East Grand Forks.
