The cross-country team recently competed in the Lowell, De La Salle, Stanford and Serra Invitationals and the WBAL preliminaries. The team is currently training for future invitationals and the WBAL championships and CCS Championships later on.

“Cross country has been going really well. The whole team is improving rapidly, and is stronger than ever despite [consisting of] mostly underclassmen,” team captain Grace Koonmen (11) said. “The varsity runners went to the Stanford Invitational [and] put up a good fight against teams of mostly juniors and seniors and the entire team had their first league meet [last Thursday].”

The team’s next meet is the WBAL championships tomorrow at Crystal Springs Cross Country Park.
