Philosophy: The MacArthur Cross Country program is being built on a foundation of year round hard work and dedication to the sport. Our runner’s pride themselves in doing more before 7am than most athletes do all day. We are small, tight knit group of individuals who work together as a team. Our goal for 2017 is to improve daily, and qualify for the State meet as a team.
Accolades: . In their first year under Coach Ford, the Highlander’s improved tremendously and proved to be a competitive team in the region winning 1 meet, and placing in the top 3 in several others. The team fell short of their goals in 2016, finishing 8th at regionals and missing qualifying for State as Team. There were 2 state qualifiers in 2016. This year, the team returns 3 Varsity carriers, as well as 1 JV runner and 3 new runners to the boys varsity team. The girls team consists of all new members which have shown much promise for the future.
