Cross Country

Cross Country is a "non-cut" fall sport, which means that any student interested in joining the team may do so as long as he/she is ready to train and come to practice.

Joining our Cross Country team will teach discipline, endurance, and the skills needed to excel independently as well as part of a team.

Teams and/or individuals meeting DoDDS Europe qualifying standards head up to Baumholder, Germany to run with more than 100 of the top Cross Country runners from throughout Europe and Turkey, in the 5 km competition.

Our head coach is Mr. Steven Buchholz and our assistant coaches are Ms. Carrie Cuenca and Ms. Jamye Loy.

Our boys Cross Country team has qualified for the European Championships five years in a row, taking 3rd place in 2013 and 1st Place in 2014 in the Division II race.

Quotes from Past Runners

Often people think of Cross Country as an individual sport, but I quickly learned this year that it's anything but that. I've been on many sports team and I've never felt camaraderie quite like what I felt during the season. It is so incredible to see what everyone can do by the end of the season and they never want to stop improving. I can't wait to see what the team will do next year.

This was an amazing cross country season, one of the best we have seen in a while. We loved seeing everyone improve and grow closer over the season. It was an honor running with you all, we can’t wait to run with you next year!
