Whereas, the Dorman High School boys cross country team experienced a banner year, much to the delight of their fans and the disappointment of their rivals. In ultimate testimony to their achievements, on November 6, 2020, the Dorman boys cross country runners seized the Class AAAAA State Championship title; and

Whereas, in addition, this triumph marked the sixth overall state championship for the Dorman boys cross country team and tied Dorman for second all-time in the state's largest classification. The team was led by senior Ty Nelson, who finished seventh overall, and junior Dylan Lego, who finished fourteenth overall. Both runners were named All-State. Following behind these two were David Jones, Elias Workman, Adrian Wilmot, Connor Yeisley, and Nathan Edwards. The team was rounded out by Dakota Biggerstaff and Noah Yarborough; and

Whereas, having honed their players into a championship machine, Coach Jeff Buys and Coach Jon Stoehr saw the fruit of their labors as the title trophy was hoisted; and
