The Starting Line

WELCOME TO THE HOME OF EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY!

  •  Follow us on Instagram: @ehsxc
     
  • We have an amazing group of athletes that work hard and are committed to maintaining a level of excellence that Edison Cross Country has become known for. Check out our history page to see how we've done over the years (the page is a work in progress).
     
  • In the Sunset League for 2017, the Boys Varsity finished 5th, while Girls Varsity finished 4th. The Boys JV finished in 4th while the Girls JV finished in 3rd. The Boys FS finished in 5th while the Girls FS finished 4th. This was the last year of the Sunset League as a 6-team league.
     
  • Starting in 2018, we will still be a part of the Sunset League Conference, but it will now have two different divisions, each with its own league champion, as well as its own CIF qualifiers. Boys will be in the Surf Division and the Girls will be in the Wave Division. 


Be sure to check back for important information, including keeping track of the Point Sheet (attendance), meet schedule and where we are supposed to be each day. It's recommended that you read the "Cornerstones of Training" and "Stretching Routines" under the Running Resources Page.

  • Keep in touch throughout the year! I use Remind.com to send out alerts to athletes mostly, but as parents it's never a bad idea to see what information your athlete is getting. Sign up following these instructions.
