Cheyenne Mountain attended the Battle Mountain Cross Country race, ready for action. Both boys and girls varsity managed to place 4th out of ten in the outcome of the race. 

Meanwhile, the boys who were not part of the varsity race and participated in the open race for JV and C team runners got first overall and the girls placed third in the same race.

Relaxing after a substantial win, the team celebrated by swimming in a local lake together, basking in their accomplishments

The Cross Country team’s achievements don’t end here. The season has just begun, and the runners are eager for more.

In the season of 2020, the boys team achieved second at the State Championship. This year, they plan to strive for more and claim first place.

Some runners to keep an eye out for are high school juniors Bryan Kerrigan and Carter Bayer, and high school senior Joe Kirwin. It will be exhilarating to witness the future races that our Red-Tailed Hawks take to next.
