ABOUT US

LASA Cross Country is a tight knit community of runners of all levels who train and race together. Whether you are a brand new runner, seasoned veteran, or athlete from another sport trying to stay in shape, everyone is welcome on the team. We have both competitive and non-competitive programs to allow individuals to find their place on the team at whatever commitment level they want. The JV and Varsity teams train to race 5k courses (about 3.11 miles) throughout the Fall.

In recent years, our Varsity teams have been very successful at the local, regional, and state level. In 2018 the boys Varsity team won district and regionals, and placed second at the state meet, with runners placing 2nd and 3rd overall at the state meet. Also in 2018, the girls team sent their first two individuals ever to the state meet. In 2019, the girls Varsity team placed second at district and third at regionals, marking the first time the girls team has qualified for the state championship. In 2019, the team also sent two boys as individuals to the state meet.

Although the team is competitive in competitions, the main focus is on creating a fun and supportive community for anyone who wants to join. If you have any questions or want more information, please contact us.
