Westside High School Cross Country Teams Race into New Season

Some of the District’s students got a running start on the school year. Westside High School’s Cross Country team was just one of many teams throughout the district that started preparing for the new season prior to the start of school.

Members of the girls and boys teams met the first week of August to get a jumpstart on training for the season, which begins in early August and runs through October. The teams will compete at 10 meets, with each course being 3.1 miles in length, which is the standard distance for Cross Country in high school.

“They’re running a little bit,” said Coach Dr. Deborah Baber, who coaches boys and girls cross country and girls basketball for the school despite having retired from teaching. “They ran a couple of miles yesterday, a mile this morning, and they’re lifting weights. I’m just trying to ease them into it with this heat.”
