Oakland Christian cross country star earns All-American honors

Published: Thursday, December 24, 2009
Mitchell Dale thought his high school cross country career would end last month at the state championships at Michigan International Speedway, where he finished sixth and earned Division 4 all-state honors for the second straight year.

But it actually ended a few weeks later at the United States Track and Field Association (USATF) Junior Olympics cross country championships in Reno, Nev.

That’s where Dale, a senior at Oakland Christian School, earned All-American honors after placing third in the Young Division in a time of 16:13 for the five-kilometer course at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park.

Dale was a part of the Project 8 club, a group of runners from Division 4 schools such as Hesperia, Saugatuck, Hillsdale and Pottersville. Project 8 won district and regional titles to advance to national competition.
