The OHS cross country team sprints into the hearts of many on campus who know about this dedicated team.

Cross country is a great way to stay fit and be active. Jordan Gorosics, freshman, said running is her sport.

“It’s a way to stay in shape and create a bond with people you can call your family,” Gorosics said.

The boys took first place at an O’Connor Invitational on Oct. 7, although the girls team did not place, they cheered on their fellow teammates.

For the early morning runners, it is vital to be devoted to their sport in order to get their best results.

“It is dedication, you have to dedicate your whole life to it,” said Tommy Burke, senior.

The team spends numerous hours a week building up their stamina and pushing themselves to run further and faster.

We run 40-50 miles a week,” Burke said, ”Workouts on Tuesdays and Thursdays.”

The boys took fourth place at an Woodbridge invitational in California on Sept. 16, girls did not place.
