Cross Country


If you are a Junior Billiken looking to build friendships and be part of a historic program in the state of Missouri, SLUH Cross Country is the home for you. We push you to buy into something larger than yourself. We work hard and hold every team member to high expectations. Instead of a series of teams differentiated by age and level, we operate daily as one single program. There are no cuts; but we do stress the importance of commitment. We also have a lot of fun. Contact Head Coach Joe Porter at with any questions or to sign up for next season's roster and/or off-season opportunities.

Many Medals Earned at Clayton

Whereas Thursday was uncomfortably warm, the Clayton Invitational received the opposite treatment on Friday. On a cold and blustery afternoon in Shaw Park, our squad again competed very well. In the varsity race, Aidan Byrne led the way for a fourth-place team finish - behind top varsity teams from Clayton and De Smet.

Fast Times at Jefferson Barracks

On a day with favorable course and weather conditions, we enjoyed a fast and fun day at Jefferson Barracks against conference foes. Race breakthroughs often come from a willingness to put aside fear, and an incredible 41 of our runners set PRs on the day. In terms of team scoring, SLUH won each race by healthy margins.

Second Place Trophy at State

For a second consecutive season, the SLUH Junior Billikens finished 2nd overall at the State meet. It was a proud finish for our decorated senior class, a class that was part of the program that finished 10th overall in both 2016 and 2017. Each of them played pivotal roles in elevating us to our consecutive runner-up finishes.
