Cross Country - Girls

We’re excited and hopeful for this upcoming season and cannot wait to get the ball rolling! With that, the coaching staff at South High School would like to welcome you to the Tiger Cross Country program for the 2021 school year!

As we return from a year that was filled with unknowns and constant change, we want to remind you that we still may receive new information and guidelines from the MSHSL in the upcoming weeks for this coming season. Please understand that anything and everything can change due to COVID19.  These guidelines will likely pertain to scheduled meets and regulations in order to make safety our first priority. We will do our best to answer any questions and will provide you with any further guidance whenever we receive new communication from the district or MSHSL. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

I want to start by introducing Coach Russ, Coach Holloway and myself along with sharing important information prior to our first day of practice together.

I am looking forward to sharing my experience and love for the sport during this upcoming season!
