Cougar Cross Country is open to all abilities and levels of experience! Incoming freshmen are especially welcome. Please be sure to visit the TEAM HANDBOOK PAGE for important team rules, procedures, and the steps required to be eligible to participate in the fall competition season.
Please also read our 2017 Welcome Packet for more information about why high school cross country is an opportunity that should not be missed. Among other reasons, cross country is a sport that boasts extremely low rates of traumatic injury (concussions, ligament tears) while providing the physical and intellectual foundations for a lifetime of healthy, happy living.
We hope you will join us for a fantastic summer and fall of running bliss!
