Cross Country - Boys' Varsity
Wilbraham & Monson Academy Boys' Cross Country is a team where athletes of all backgrounds come together. We compete in the New England Prep School Division IV championship meet each year, and have seen our standing in that field improve nearly every year since 2007. At our core, we have strong student leadership that has helped instill a tradition of hard work and sportsmanship. The Cross Country team brings together a diverse mix of students, many without prior running experience as well as many serious runners who anticipate running in college. Over the past three years we have had students from eight states and nine countries participate in Cross Country. Our student leaders and our coaches stress that each individual is part of a team, and that everyone can improve.
In practices we break the team into three to four levels, based on a combination of experience and ability. Each group runs a similar but modified run to meet the diverse needs of the team. A couple of days a week we utilize the new Shaw Track, while the mixture of flat roads to the west of campus and the rolling hills to the east of campus offer athletes scenic and varied training runs ideal for Cross Country.
