The Starting Line

WELCOME TO THE 2015 EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY SEASON!

We have an amazing group of talented returning athletes and a promising group of freshmen that continue to push this team to new heights! We are extremely excited to kick off the 2015 season and build off of the success we enjoyed in 2014!

In 2014, Boys Varsity and Girls Varsity both finished 2nd in League, Boys JV finished 1st (Back to Back Champs!), Girls JV finished 2nd, Boys FS and Girls 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.

Sign Up Genius
Please remember to sign up for driving dates during the summer. Without parent help, we cannot practice away from Edison, which limits our training capabilities. We ask that each family sign up for at least 1 day, hopefully 2 days. –>Follow this link<– to see what days are available. Don't forget that you also have to be cleared with the school. Follow the instructions in the "Parent Meeting" page or contact Cindy Berman at Edison HS.
