For most of the past 4 years, Jamison Dale has largely been the face of Jones College Prep and for that matter the entire Public League conference in distance. (not to diminish accomplishments of anyone else)
Here are just some of his accomplishments just in cross country
- Became Jones 1st individual and repeat CPS cross country championship.
- Led Jones to 1st CPS varsity team cross country championship.
- Led Jones to first ever state cross country championship and first state championship for any sport.
Dale's graduation signifies a beginning and an end. An end to a great high school career. A beginning in that his performance has helped not only Jones elevate to un heard of previous levels but the whole CPS as a whole has benefited as well.
I feel that competition is a good thing. When you have a Dale compete at a high level, it forces everyone else to raise their game. Dale competed at an extremely high level.
