The IESA has stated that middle school athletes, both boys and girls, run a two-mile course during their meets and all of our conference meets will be two miles. Boys and girls normally do not run in the same race, but the Tiger Trails Invite in Oswego sometimes combines boys and girls at the same grade level. Scoring in cross country is different from many sports since the lowest score wins. A team consists of seven runners with the top five scoring points for their team.
Points are earned based on the place earned, so if the top five runners for a team finished in 1st, 5th, 10th, 14th, and 20th the team would have scored 50 points.
Senior All Star Meet/ Track and Field
The 6th and 7th runners are important in case of a tie and they can also hurt another team's score by beating their top five runners. Although the top seven runners are important in cross country, most cross country meets feature an open race that allows any number of participants.
There are no cuts in cross country so if you show up to practice and follow all team and school rules you will be able to run in the meets. We believe all of our runners are important to the team so when our team wins a trophy everyone who ran in that race should go up to accept the trophy whether they were the first runner in the race or the last.
