  • Cross Country - US - Men's & Women's

    2015 - 2016
    Head Coach: Scott Sanders

    Cross Country is an inclusive sport—one for which has spot for everyone and where every runner has the ability to see improvement through proper training. Soon the difficult becomes an easy daily activity, and the seemingly impossible becomes an accomplishment. It is a sport that rewards individual effort, but also has a significant team component. Like most athletic endeavors, it is a sport that teaches many valuable life lessons. The La Jolla Country Day Cross Country program aims to teach runners about proper training and racing; foster an atmosphere that values discipline, hard work, positive encouragement, communication, camaraderie and fun; and encourage each runner and the team as a whole to improve their running and achieve their goals.

    For more than 15 years, Country Day has been one of the most successful cross country programs in San Diego. Our teams have won numerous team and individual championships at the league, conference and CIF level, and consistently competes at the state level. In the last 19 years the boy’s team has won 12 league/conference titles and 12 CIF titles; they have also finished as the runner-up seven times in league/conference and three times in CIF. The boys have produced six individual champions in league/conference and four in CIF. They have finished as high as third place at state, twice.

    The girls have won seven league/conference titles and seven CIF titles, and have finished as the runner-up, twice, in league/conference and five times in CIF. The girls have produced five individual champions in league/conference and seven in CIF. The girls’ best state finish is eighth.

    This success is the result of hard work and dedication. Most of our runners join the team with very little running experience.

    Many Country Day runners are leaders in other areas of the school, especially the classroom. In 2013-2014 the Cum Laude Society included seven cross country runners, and in 2014, the boys were honored as one of San Diego’s top academic teams.
