The Cross Country team at Greenwood High School is an inclusive athletic team that is offered to both students in 7th to 12th grade in the Greenwood Public School District. Our Mississippi based student-athletes compete from August to November, training daily to improve their time in running 3.1 miles while also learning teamwork, dedication, and perseverance.
Our team has grown in recent years, with eight runners in 2014 to over twenty runners on the current roster.
The money raised will go toward…
-Uniforms. With a current total of 6 uniforms, the majority of our current runners race wearing a plain white tshirt and maroon gym shorts. We will need about 35 uniforms to accomodate a future increase in participation on the girls team.
-Tent. Our season is split between the intense Mississippi summer and more mild fall months. Our current protective canopy has been used for multiple seasons and has begun to rip along the seams.
