Cross Country

Panther Cross Country is open to all students in Grades 3 to 8. This is a Fall time sport that begins in mid-September. Practices are held weekly on the nearby exercise track and school grounds after dismissal. The team is managed by Mrs. Frith.

Cross Country requires stamina and perseverance as athletes run long distances on an outdoor course that could include hills, rough terrain, and wooded areas. It is a lot of fun and competing against upwards of 15 other Catholic elementary schools adds to the excitement. Medals are usually earned by the top 15 runners and they are divided by gender and grade levels.

We are looking for parent volunteers to help at the meets held either weekdays soon after school dismisses or on weekends in September and October. If you can help us out please contact Mrs. Frith at efrith@theacademyolp.org.
