The sport of Cross Country is simultaneously a team sport and an individual one. Teams score based upon the athletes place at the end of each race however each race is run alone by those athletes. It is a sport that combines mental toughness with physical ability that ultimately serves to increase self-confidence and maturity. We compete in the Santa Fe League fielding a Varsity and JV team to compete in the three league meets and several Invitationals. Our Running Eagles like all other student-athletes at Verbum Dei strive for excellence athletically, academically, and in the community. We compete for “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,” For the Greater Glory of God.
