High School & Middle School

Cross Country

Our Cross Country program provides opportunities for our student-athletes to be part of a competitive and successful program. We compete in AAA in the GIAA and are in region 5 with Pacelli, Brookstone, Strong Rock, Heritage, and Westfield. As with all teams at SMA, we rest on the values of sportsmanship, work ethic, discipline, teamwork, and commitment.

*a few notes from the GB story - almost the entire boys team set new PR's in the 5k at the AT&T Starr's Mill Panther XC Meet, in Fayetteville, GA.
Most notable PR's were set by Ronan Malally (crushed his time from last season by 3 minutes ), Henry Nguyen  (set a new PR by almost 2 minutes), Travis Nguyen and Angel Duran-Medrano (shaved off a little more than a minute), Micah Castile and Brian Ekpenyong ran 30/40 secs faster to set new PR's.
Senior Breanna McBride also a new PR by more than one-minute in the girls 5K
We are blessed to have veteran senior runners that returned from last season - Gianni Del Pilar, Brian Ekpenyong, and Travis Nguyen. We are also thankful for our new runners that joined this season - Pacha Laplanche, Denzel Triyanto, Ai Ha, Athena Bui, Angel Duran-Medrano, and Ty Moses.
