The Union County Quad- "Battle of the Ol' Canteen" is a big highlight of the Beresford Watchdog cross country season. It is the first race during the "Championship" season and we put a high priority on doing well here. The four teams from Union County (Alcester-Hudson, Bersford, Dakota Valley and Elk Point-Jefferson) converge on the Elk Point golf course each year and partake in this ultimate team race. There is a 5K varsity girl's race and a 5K varsity boy's race and ALL runners from the four schools compete in the varsity division at this meet. The top four placers from each team count towards the team points and two pushers can bump other competitors down in the scoring. The best overall combined team score from the boy's and girl's race wins the Ol' Canteen.
