Boys Cross Country
The Waukee Boys’ and Girls’ Cross Country programs are two of the most consistently successful cross country programs in the state. The boys’ team has made an appearance at the State Meet in seven of the past eight seasons and have won three District titles since 2007. The girls’ team has made nine consecutive State Meet appearances and have amassed four Regional titles since 2008.
Waukee’s successes can be directly attributed to dedicated athletes that have embraced the physical and mental challenges associated with cross country. A commitment to off-season conditioning and training methodology focused on patient progression prepares athletes for high school success, readies athletes for collegiate competition, and provides a foundation for a lifetime of running enjoyment.
A successful tradition, combined with a coaching staff that values all athletes and emphasizes competing at their fullest potential, has led to increased participation and cemented Waukee as one of the largest programs in the state. Competitive opportunities exist for all athletes grade 8-12 regardless of ability or prior running experience.
