Cross Country - Varsity Coed
Both the men's and women's teams finished second in the district championships to advance to state. The mens team ran incredibly well to finish 3rd at the State 3A Championships. The women raced their way to sixth place overall. Both teams had outstanding finishes that day.
There is a long and proud tradition of running at Catlin Gabel. We focus on individual improvement and achievement, whether you are leading the pack or pushing the pack we are all meant to feel like a valued member of the team and the tradition of running. Daily practice and workouts are meant to strengthen athlete’s endurance thresholds and their speed.
We structure workouts such that no one feels like they are always bringing up the rear, but we hope that all athletes feel like they are part of the pack. Athletes are challenged to compete with themselves and to set goals for themselves as as a team. Some athletes set fitness goals and others set their personal and team goals to be top runners at district and state.
We as the coaching staff find a path for each athlete to experience success and hopefully hit their marks! Teamwork and sportsmanship are key parts to the success of our program. Athletes are reminded in practice and race day to “win with dignity and lose with honor.” They are encouraged to cheer for everyone in the race and to shake the hand of their competitors at the end of the race regardless of the outcome.
Running at Catlin Gabel has never been a stronger or more fun sport.
