Girls Cross Country
The Waukee Girls Cross Country program is one of the state’s most consistently successful cross country programs over the past decade. The girls’ team is a fixture in the state’s top ten rankings and has made eleven consecutive State Meet appearances. Only Iowa City High, Iowa City West and Pleasant Valley match Waukee in terms of consecutive State Meet appearances. In addition to amassing five Regional titles since 2008, Waukee has also won three Conference titles during Head Coach Heather Every’s 14 year tenure.
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 a 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.
