The first Cross Country (CC) program at D-C started during the fall of 1972, the same year that the Dassel and Cokato High Schools consolidated. The first CC program consisted of male athletes that were looking to stay in shape for their other sports. It is not known the exact reason as to why the CC program ended in 1976; one possibility is that there was not enough participation in the sport.
