Warren honors Council Rock North cross country team at Capitol

HARRISBURG, Jan. 26 – State Rep. Perry Warren hosted the Council Rock North boys cross country team at the Capitol Tuesday, in honor of the team's 2016 PIAA Class AAA championship.

The team and its coaches, Dave Marrington and Rob Rogers, were honored with House citations and a presentation in the chamber of the House of Representatives in which state Rep. Scott Petri, R-Bucks, participated, as well. They also met with state Sens. Chuck McIlhinney, R-Bucks, and Tommy Tomlinson, R-Bucks, for lunch and photos in the Senate and Rotunda.

The 2016 title is the 10th state championship for the Council Rock boys cross country program, the second for coach Marrington and the first since the high school split between CR North and CR South in 2003.
