Cross Country


Around 100 runners join the Lynx Cross Country Teams each year. The Varsity, JV and Middle School teams officially start practice in August, and compete through mid-October. Each year, the Lynx XC program brings home individual medals and team trophies, thanks to hard-working athletes, excellent coaches, and a supportive team.
