ON SATURDAY MORNING, George Mason High School’s cross country team traveled north of the Mason-Dixon Line and took on some of Pennsylvania’s top teams. The team was fortunate with perfect cross country weather that led to impressive times over the flat, fast 5K course. Overall, the girls placed 9th with 282pts, beating Camp Hill High School and host Gettysburg High School, while the boys finished 16th with 447pts beating Frederick High School and Mountain View High School. The girls had 6 of their runners in the top 100 and the boys had one of the best 1-5 spread in 44 seconds
