Cross Country - Girls' Varsity

Signup for an alert reminder.

The 2018 Girls Varsity Cross Country season will begin on Monday, August 13.  Runners will have three time trials (August 17, 24, 31) in which to make the racing squad  Foreign students who are out of the country in August will have their time trial on September 6.  Foreign students will not be allowed to run in the season opener (September 5 vs Bishop Ahr) but if they make the team on September 6, they will race on September 8 at the Newark Academy Invitational (as long as they have the required 6 practices).  Those runners failing the time trial will be placed on a training squad and will have subsequent opportunities to make the team.  Therefore it is imperative that runners complete the summer running program.  Details of the summer program will be posted before the end of the school year on the team site (link below).


Other pre-requisites are a love of running and a commitment to attend all practices and meets.


Another major change for the 2018 squad is that runners will need to earn their varsity letter.  Details of this change will be posted in early August on the team site.
