The Rock Canyon High School Jaguars Cross Country boys and girls teams qualified once again to compete at the State Championship meet on October 30 at Arapahoe Fairgrounds.
This season marks the seventh consecutive time for the boys team and the eighth consecutive time for the girls team to qualify for the State meet.
The Jaguars built their tough competitive reputation and current standing with a rigorous training program that started mid-summer. The program includes running an average of three-to-five miles daily before and during the cross country season, coupled with core/weight training sessions.
Much credit goes to Head Coach Dan Davies and Assistant Coaches Julie Vieselmeyer and Alan Lind, who have worked alongside the Jaguars to bring out the strength and commitment it takes to make it to the State Championship.
