Cross Country Senior Feature

Cross Country Senior Feature

This year we have three seniors on the Dodge Point Cross Country team from Mineral Point. On the girls’ side, we have Regan Schuette, and Grace Wersal who are 4-year members of the Dodge Point High School Cross Country team. For the guys’ side, there is only Macclain (Mac) Busser who is a 1st-year member. Here is a bit more about each of them.

Mac Busser is one of the most talkative and supportive people on the team. No matter who was running he would always be there to cheer them on. Even after his season was over, he would still come to practice and meets. Mac always had a good conversation with everyone and is an overall great teammate. Mac plans to become a Journeyman Electrician at Southwest Tech next year.
