Digital Harbor's girls and boys cross country teams lived up to their motto - "Maximum input produces maximum output" - yesterday as the girls won the city championship and both teams produced the top individual finishers.

Senior Brittany Griffin took first place among the girls with a time of 20:40. Junior Milo Barry won the boys race in 17:20.

In the boys team competition, Digital Harbor, with 61 points, placed second to the defending champion, Mervo, which had 27.

"We're trying to better what we did last year, said Digital Harbor coach Lutalo Bakari. "Although the boys were disappointed, they now realize they have a lot of hard work to do to prepare for regionals."
