Girls' Cross Country - Varsity

Record: 2-6

Overview

Overview

The Taft girls' cross country program aims to be an inclusive program for both competitive and beginning runners. The coaches work to develop each runner to her fullest potential and foster a strong sense of teamwork in what is often perceived to be an individual sport. Workouts are stratified to meet the training needs of each runner, challenging those who aim to be collegiate athletes and encouraging those who are new to the sport. Our daily runs vary in their format, including distance runs, hill repeats, track workouts, and fartlek running, and the team takes one day per week to cross train with weights, yoga, or Zumba. The coaches' overall goal is to instill a life-long love of running in each graduate of the program.
