Cross Country[edit]

Dennis-Yarmouth's cross-country teams are regarded as one of the premier programs in New England and have won numerous state, regional, and national championships in recent years.

The boys team won the All-State Championship in back to back years, the only boys team in Massachusetts to have done so (the MIAA switched from a single all-state championship race for each gender in cross country to large and small school state championship races in 1990[7]) . Further, the boys team did it twice, in 1974/1975 and 1989/1990. Harrier magazine ranked them one of the top 25 teams in the United States in 1989[8] and 1990.[9] The girls team won the Div. I (large schools) All-State team championship in 2006. Jordan O'Dea is the only D-Y cross country runner to garner an individual All-State Championship, finishing first in the All-State Div. II (small schools) race in 2011.[10]
