It is time to assemble the next wave of warriors. The cross country tryouts are Wednesday!

Bell High School’s cross country program is one of the best in the whole eastern league. Almost every year our team goes to City Prelims and City Finals. But what exactly is cross country?

Cross country is a running sport where a team works together to try to receive the lowest number of points. The runners earn points based on the place they come in. In a nutshell, the lower score wins.

Students interested in sweating it out on the course, staying fit, or just meeting tons of new people should show up on Wednesday, June 1st after school by Coach Sanchez’s office. The office is located by the gate on Flora and Atlantic. All that is required to try out is an emergency card, running shoes, and a positive attitude.

    Cross country is really one big happy family. We are known for how large our group is and it makes it the merrier of our times together. Being in this team for four years has made me feel more than comfortable to be here at this school. It has become my second home and has given me a purpose or something to look forward to in my day. These intense workouts were one hell of a challenge but I love me a challenge. It made the sport more exciting. The fact is that although this is a team sport i is also an individual sport because during the race you are focused on yourself and on your pacing. Personally I love this about this sport because I get to challenge myself. When I know how much I do not want to actually run so much, but knowing that I in fact completed the workout gives me satisfaction.
