Roland Hakes, AAAA State Cross Country Champion!

By: Barry Lindler, Head Cross Country Coach

Congratulations to junior Roland Hakes for winning the 4-A Boys Individual State Championship for Cross Country on Saturday at Sandhills!

For the second time in 2 weeks, Roland set a new DFHS record, breaking the record held by Everett Ernst since 1995 in the 5000 meter ( 3.1 mile ) event.

Roland won the championship by 10 seconds over the 2nd place runner, with a time of 15:34, the second best time ever run at Sandhills in a State Championship meet, all divisions.

This is Roland's second individual championship, the first being in the 3200 meter ( 2 mile ) event in Track & Field last spring.

Great job Roland!
