OFA hosted its final home cross country meet of the season on Saturday morning and visiting Canton came away with Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys individual and team honors to hand both Devil squads their second losses of the season.
The meet turned out to be the Blue Devils' final meet of the season as the OFA school district announced Saturday evening that it was switching to remote only until Nov. 24 because of two COVID-19 cases thus ending the fall season.
