A Brief History of Cross Country

The Cross Country program began in 2009 with a burst of energy. Although open to both guys and girls, the first team was all girls and they ran hard without looking back. Even though it was the first year, that first team placed second at sectionals and advanced to state. At state, Amy McKelvey, an eighth grader, won the 1A-2A Individual State Title. The next year the team set their sites high and returned to state after placing third at sectionals. The 2012 season saw the beginnings of a guys team with two male runners joining the training. The team continues to train hard and looks to run the good race of life while running the good race on the trails.

The Cross Country team is currently Coached by Dr. David McKelvey.
