Cross Country

Program Overview

The boys and girls WESM Cross Country team is experiencing a resurgence in regards to both participation and competitiveness.  With a large number of dedicated student-athletes on the team this year, the bar has been set high for future WESM Cross Country teams to try to match and surpass.  The team consistently made large strides in improvement throughout the 2012 season.  Numerous personal records were set by many of our runners.  This success and strong overall work ethic will no doubt be exhibited by the teams in the coming years.
