Welcome to the sport of cross country. Or, for our returning student-athletes and parents, welcome back to another cross country season. Without a doubt, this is a unique sport for quite a few reasons. We, your coaching staff, are convinced that there is so much more to be gained from this experience than simply the competitive aspects of high school athletics.
After most high school sports, approximately 70% of highly competitive athletes stop exercising regularly on the day of their last competition. After some time with this team however, it is very common for running to simply “flow through one’s blood.” The last day of high school competition for a cross country runner is hopefully the beginning of a lifestyle of fitness, strength, and good health.
We encourage you and your parents to review or full Cross Country Handbook, which you may dowload below. \We are looking forward to a great year. On your marks, get set, GO!
