The Eagle Middle School Cross Country team is a co-ed team that is open to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Prior experience is not necessary. Participants must have a desire to run and to improve their physical fitness. All runners are able to compete in every meet after they have met the 10 practice minimum requirement.
Runners need to have appropriate running gear: shoes, shorts, t-shirts, and a water bottle. The school dress code is in effect at athletic practices and events.
