Commitment, Loyalty, Teamwork

As with all sports, the coach cannot do it alone. Therefore, during the cross country and track & field season, the athlete will have the opportunity to demonstrate the importance of self-discipline, self-motivation, commitment, loyalty, teamwork, support, winning, losing, caring, honesty, hard work, and sacrifice. If you accept the challenges placed before you and work hard, you can become the kind of human being who will be an asset to the community. So, meet us halfway by bringing with you a sincere desire to excel, to work, and to be the best you can be.
