The Cross Country team is a team at Springville Junior High School, who runs long distances. This team is going on right now at SJHS! This team is an amazing team and loves to run a lot and would like to encourage more kids to join next year.
“This team is full of hard workers, and you have to work to be on this team,” said Kate Chatfield, a member of the SJHS Cross Country team.
Mathieu Quinlan, another member of the SJHS Cross Country team, said, “Cross Country is a team that builds running skills together.”
This team practices every day right after school for an hour. Mrs. Bodily, the Cross Country team coach, said, “Students are to come to practice every day and to work hard. They should always do their best. They are also expected to get good grades.”
A lot of students say Cross Country is fun. Morgan Roper, a seventh grader at SJHS, said, “It is fun to be on a team at school and get to know more kids.”
Heidi Sumsion, another seventh grader at SJHS, said, “ I enjoy running. I have been running ever since I was little. My whole family runs, and what inspired me to run was my dad. I like to run a lot of 5ks, and normally I get first in all of my races.”
According to Kate Chatfield, Cross Country is really fun, and it is a good learning experience for everyone on the team, and helps those who want to be on the track team later in the year get ready for track. According to Mrs. Bodily, Cross Country is awesome and anyone and everyone can run Cross Country!
