Our St. Rita Cross Country Team is off and running! Their first practices were last week, and they did not waste any time embracing the hills for which our school is historically known. And before the season kicked off, students, parents, and alumni participated in the Sacred Heart Summer Fun Run in downtown Los Angeles. Four of the ten St. Rita Raiders running brought home medals!
On October 15th, our team will step up to the start line of the first C.Y.O. race of the season. In the meantime, the athletes will continue to train on Tuesdays and Fridays. I’m encouraging each member of the team to identify his or her purpose for joining cross country and hope that everyone has a meaningful and fun season. Athletes will also set personal and team goals for the season and strive to improve their personal records. It is not too late to join cross country!
