The Morris Area/ Chokio-Alberta cross country teams host the first meet of the season on Monday, Aug. 29.
The Tigers will host several teams in the season opener at the Pomme de Terre Golf Club in Morris.
The Tigers will not return home until the West Central Conference South meet on Oct. 18.
Dale Henrich is coaching the runners again this season.
The boys have a lot of experience in seniors Ben Jerke, Brody Bahr, Jacob Erickson, Riley Arndt, and Sam Mattson.
The Tiger girls are led by senior Julia Sauder.
With eight girls on the roster, the Tigers should have no trouble competing as a team.
The boys have 20 members and will be able to fill a junior varsity team, as well.
The Section 6A meet will be held in Long Prairie-Grey Eagle on Oct. 27.
The state cross country meet will again be held at St. Olaf College on Nov. 5.
