• Cross Country


    Here are some facts: 

    In the past 13 years, the combined Lakeside High School Boys & Girls Cross Country Team leads the entire Washington State XC 1A Classification (and top 5 across ALL classifications) in the following statistics: 

       Most State XC Team Appearances:  12 of the past 13 years

         Most State XC Team Titles:  7 State XC Titles- 4 Boys & 3 Girls. (6 Total for Boys)

         Most State XC Runner-up Team Titles:  4 State XC Runner-up Titles

       Most State XC Team Trophies (Top 4 only): 19 total State XC Team Trophies

        Most State XC Individual Medals:  41 State XC Individual medals


    Another interesting fact is that in the fall of 2015, the Lakeside High School Girls XC Team lost its very first league conference meet in 12 years this last year!  That was 11 straight years undefeated in regular season league conference meets! 

    But more importantly LHS Cross Country changes lives like many other sports cannot, as I assume other sports can also say.  As quoted by many first year Lakeside HS XC runners, “I never imagined how rewarding and much fun running and being part of a high school cross country team could be! On top of that, it gets me into the best shape for my other sports. High school cross country is just one of the sports you really have to try in order to understand its rewards.”  Many former middle school cross country runners have said the same thing about high school cross country.

    Absolutely NO prior running experience is required to join the LHS Cross Country Team.
