Cross Country


As the new school year starts back up so do our sports and clubs, cross country is one of our most anticipated sports. After only being open for two years cross country has added a number of victories to put under our belt. 

“I always challenge myself to be the best even if it seems tough,” Hunter Stahl (‘26) said.

Students that run cross country here are dedicated, hard workers that are good at what they do. Each meet, our team always works their hardest to not only beat the competition but also beat their own personal records.

While Miranda Dawson is one of the newer cross country runners, she has not only beat her own personal record but she has also moved up from junior varsity to varsity in just one season. Dawson is one of the harder-working runners, even though she had just started running this recent year.

“Sometimes I regret signing up for cross country but most of the time it’s worth it and a lot of fun,” Miranda Dawson (‘26) said.

This year, varsity only started out with four guys and one girl, but now it is quickly expanding with seven guys and five girls, showing how fast our cross country team is growing. 

Their determination was shown on September 24, 2022 at their meet at the Gans Creek Classic. Twenty-one out of twenty-four of the team members beat their personal record with the very first varsity girls team competing, two JV boys medaled with Stahl placing twelve and Josh Simms placing twenty-fourth, after the race, Simms moved up from JV to Varsity.

We are sending much hope as we would love to see our team continuously improve throughout the season and school year. We are curious to see how well the team will improve and change through the season.
