Summer practice for the Raider Cross Country team begins near the end of the school year and spans most of the summer. Athletes are encouraged to attend summer practice, as well as the Gulf States Distance Running Camp, held in Covington, LA in late-July; in this way, the runner can prepare immeasurably for the fall racing season.
Comprised of junior-high, junior varsity, and Varsity squads, Raider Cross Country competes against area high schools in and around Southern Louisiana from September to mid-November. The top-seven runners at the end of each week will compete in the Varsity race (3 miles), and the remaining runners not in junior-high will compete in the JV race (also 3 miles). The junior-high squad competes in races two-miles in length.
With no tryouts, and no cuts, Raider Cross Country is for everybody; all students are welcome to come out and run!
Following the Cross Country season, many athletes compete on the Track and Field team.
