We're in training for the 2017 Cross Country Season now. Championships are won over the summer, not in the fall. If you want to get the most of your season you need to start ASAP if you haven't already. Check out our blog for early season training if you haven't started yet. If you're new, please fill out THIS INFO FORM so I can put you on our text/email list.
Every season we get a few kids from out of town who have run at other schools. If this is you, please contact me ASAP via the contacts in the left panel.
The 2016 Girls Cross Country Team won both the Eastern League Championships and the Division IV CIF Title. They placed 4th in Division IV at the state meet.
The boys won the Eastern League Championship.
For years the Islander Cross Country Team dominated the small school City Conference leagues beginning with the Harbor League, then the Central League, and in 2015 the City League.
Last year we were moved to the larger Eastern League where the girls still dominated and the boys won a close championship.
This year we're in the Western League with larger schools where things will be very competitive for us.... this is a good thing.
The other Western League Schools are Cathedral Catholic, La Jolla, Scripps Ranch, Serra, and University City.
The San Diego Section is split up into 5 CIF divisions with D-I the largest and D-V the smallest. Coronado is about in the middle of D-IV. Scripps Ranch is in D-II and the rest of the others in D-III.
Last season the Cathedral Catholic boys' team was ranked 5th overall in San Diego and they won the D-III competition at the State Meet. However, 4 of their top 7 varsity guys have graduated. Scripps Ranch was ranked 12th but their top 2 have graduated. Coronado was ranked 21st overall but this season we bring everyone back and we'll add a fast runner or two. Of the rest Serra was 33rd last season with 3 graduating from their varsity squad, University City was 45th with all returning, and La Jolla 47 with all returning. This will be an interesting and competitive season for the boys.
For the girls' squad Cathedral Catholic was the top team in San Diego last season with their top 4 returning. They'll be tough. Coronado was the 4th ranked team but we lost two of our top 3 to graduation. Hopefully our new runners will be able to give us the depth we need to be competitive. University City was ranked 8th and lose 2 of their top 5. Of the rest Scripps Ranch was 16th last season, La Jolla 25th, and Serra 44th.
