Improvement was the goal of the 1958-59 South Cross Country Team.  Under Coach John Cummings, that is exactly what the team did.

South finished the year with a 6-4 record, beating Edison, Henry, Southwest, Vocational, Washburn and West.  The four losses were against Central, Marshall, North and Roosevelt.

At the Conference Meet, South improved five spots to seventh place.  Senior Jon Hammer finished in sixth place, the best a South runner has done in years. 

In the Region 5 Meet, South finished 12th out of 22 teams.  Jon Hammer finished 13th.
