In addition to its regular league meets, the team participates in several invitationals, such as the Canterbury Invitational, the Wickham Invitational (run on the same course as the public school State meets), and the Collegiate Invitational at Van Cortland Park in the Bronx.
The future promises to be great for many reasons. First, cross country welcomes all girls, of all abilities, who want to work hard and be part of a team. No one is ever cut from this sport. Rather, the team offers a place where all runners can see and enjoy the fruits of their efforts very directly, as improvement is directly linked to effort. Second, the team’s success is a result of the friendships that are made and developed. Our winning ways stem from our commitment to one another.
