Cross Country

Cross Country (ˈkrȯs-ˈkən-trē) – noun
1. a long race held over open ground

The simple definition, while accurate, does not capture the true essence of this sport. It is a sport that is designed to test one’s grit, determination, focus, and stamina. At Saint Stanislaus this is a sport that fits our boys well. We excel at this sport, and have done so since the late 1980’s because it plays to our strengths: hard-work, preparation, and grit.

On the calendar, Cross Country season runs from August to early November. To be successful at this endurance sport, however, runners must train nearly year round. You will find the Cross Country Team training early in the summer through the state championship meet in November. And while the Cross Country season ends there, most of our runners make the transition to track & field where they continue to run fast and hard on a different surface.

The Saint Stanislaus Cross Country Program is one with a solid history. In 1991 the Cross Country Team brought the first ever State Championship to Saint Stanislaus. In 2012 and 2014 the Rocks once again brought home 4A State Titles. SSC has been State Runner Up on five occasions: 1990, 1993, 1994, 2010, and 2011.  Saint Stanislaus has won the Division 8-4A Title in each of the following years: 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 2001, 2002, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016.
