The Starting Line

WELCOME TO THE 2014 EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY SEASON!

We have an amazing group of talented returning athletes and a promising group of freshmen that continue to make this our best cross country team ever! We are extremely excited to kick off the 2014 season and build off of the success we enjoyed in 2013! Last year, Boy’s Varsity finished 3rd in League, the Girl’s Varsity finished 1st (League Champs for the first time since 1994!!), Boy’s JV finished 1st (Hooray League Champs!), Girl’s JV finished 2nd, Boy’s FS finished 2nd and Girl’s FS finished 3rd.

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.

Summer Camp 2014 will take place June 30 – Aug 26, Mon-Sat at 7:00 am. The start time is very different than in years past, so be aware of this change.
