Panther Cross Country is a family of student-athletes (runners), their families, coaches, and many supporters. Over the years this program has constructed and maintained a fine tradition of outstanding teams and individuals. Team members have consistently pushed and supported each other in training and in competition. The pride of all Panther XC success is shared among all team members, regardless of the individuals that may have won on a particular day. Team victories are always the top priority, but personal best performances (PR's) are celebrated as well. More importantly, Panther XC runners have consistently excelled in the classroom, attaining many top academic honors over the years. The decision to actively participate in the Panther XC program is a choice to work hard, to have fun, to join an outstanding group of driven people, and a choice to succeed in school and in life.
