Cross Country

Our Cross Country program has existed since the founding of our school in 1965. During that time, we have been one of the most successful teams in Northern California. 

Spartans have won dozens of invitationals at all levels from frosh-soph to varsity. To date, we have 29 league championships, 19 NCS championships, and 2 California state championships under our belt. In addition, three Spartans have competed in the National Championship; one of whom finished top-ten. One Spartan Harrier also won the World Championship for under-18 runners.

Our program prides itself on having grit, being resilient, and having great teammates. One of our mottos is “Imua!” which is a Hawaiian battle cry loosely translated as “Go forth and conquer!” Our other motto is, “Enjoy!"
