Cross Country - Coed Varsity
Hawk Cross Country, like all the other teams at Archbishop Hannan, has its sights set on an appearance at the State meet year in and year out for both the girls and boys teams.
The team practices every afternoon from 3:30 - 5:00 PM.
I believe athletics helps students to grow in many ways. It teaches teamwork, dedication, perseverance, sportsmanship and even in defeat valuable life lessons are learned. I can attribute my work ethic today to my experiences I had by being an athlete. In life you will have to face many obstacles and I know personally I am able to handle them with greater ease because I was an athlete.
We’re coming off winning our 3rd girls district last year, 2nd boys district title. The future is bright for Hannan Cross Country.
I believe in team community and family. Our team is truly a family that supports and encourages each other daily. As a coach I expect every athlete to show up and give 100% at practice, and the goal is to always improve each day. I work with my athletes to make sure they are balancing their commitment to the team with their studies, other school commitments and allowing family life. I tell my team members that since they are representing the school, their family, and themselves they are expected to always display good sportsmanship, representing the Hannan way of integrity, charity and compassion. My strong faith in Jesus is what guides me daily, and I strive very hard to live by his example.
