Cross Country

Cross Country

The Sport of Cross Country is a competitive team sport offered in the fall of the year for both girls and boys in grades 5 through 12. Teams all race together at the same time against the other teams. The top five finishers from each team are used for scoring and their finishing places are totaled to see which team wins. The lowest score wins. High school races are usually 3.1 miles long, and junior high races are usually 2 miles long. The courses often times take place at public parks or golf courses and parents are allowed to attend and cheer them on from anywhere on the course. The great thing about cross country at this level is that everyone who tries out for the sport generally gets to compete. Even though the first 7 runners to finish are considered the “scoring team”, everyone still gets to run and try to contribute to the team’s scoring. At DIS, there are no cuts, and no bench to sit on and watch while others play!
