Cross Country has become a popular sport at South High School.  Because of the popularity, many freshmen come out for the team and tend to stay.  A strong bond develops between the members of the team.  Head Coach Mark Gross was quoted in the 2015 South Yearbook saying, “The team did very well during the final meets.  I am happy to be a part of this family!”
