Cross Country is a fall sport starting in mid-August and concluding with the WIAA state
meet at the end of October. The program offers competition on the Freshman, JV and
Varsity levels. All athletes who can maintain the designated level of training make the
team. Freshmen race at distances from 2 miles (at the beginning of the season) to
5000 meters. The varsity and JV teams always compete at the 5000 meter distance.
There are meets every week and since the JV and freshmen meets are unlimited entries
everyone gets to compete each week. It is recommended that athletes coming out for
cross country get in some pre season training. It is necessary to have a good pair of
training shoes and a "runners watch" as needed equipment.
