The 2019 Skyhawk Cross Country teams will have 4 women and 4 men. The women’s team returns two from last year’s Region IV championship team, and they were our top two runners on the team. We have three new runners who hope to push the team to challenge again for the Region IV championship. On the men’s side, we have 4 new team members. They have a lot of potential and a great work ethic to make things competitive.
The challenge of the sophomores will be to show leadership and guidance in molding the group into a successful team. This should be achievable since, as freshmen, they worked hard and were successful in area high school programs.
The 2019 season consists of seven meets, including the 16th Annual Skyhawk Invitational, to be held at Sauk on October 19. Last year, the women’s team and one individual on the men’s side advanced to Nationals. This year, we hope to have qualifiers again for the National Meet.
It will be an exciting season as we train, improve, and set and achieve high goals for the 2019 cross country season.
