The cross country team is proud of it's rich history in athletics but is also proud of what they teach about being great students and members of the community. The teams have learned to give back to the community through things like free snow shoveling for senior citizens and those unable to remove their snow. They have also participated in food drives and other activities to give back to the community. Their team is proud of their motto of "We Over Me" and carries it with them every where they go. We are hoping for your continued support as the team looks to continue making an impact on student athletes and those in the community as well. 

2022 Medal!
