Season Recaps

The first SLUH Cross Country team competed in 1944. Clicking on a season pulls up meet results, team split sheets, Prep News stories, and even daily practice logs. Please report any broken links or issues to Coach Gilmore (bgilmore@sluh.org). Also, let him know if you have materials to add to any season's record.

 

Historical Meet Results

Organized by meets that exist on our current schedule, find historical results and team split sheets.

 

Metro Catholic Conference Championships

SLUH is a member school of the Metro Catholic Conference (MCC). Since its formation in 1991, the MCC has been the athletic home of SLUH, De Smet, Vianney, CBC, and Chaminade. The MCC has offered Cross Country as an interscholastic activity since 1992. In the sport of cross country, SLUH has an unparalleled tradition of success against other MCC schools.

 

District Championship History

District is now the one and only qualifying meet to get to State, so the margin for error is razor thin. In Missouri, there are now four Districts in the large school Class 5 - SLUH's class. Every school with a cross country team is eligible to compete at their District meet. From each District, the top four teams (and any individuals in the top 30 from non-qualifying teams) qualify to State.

 

State Meet History

SLUH has a rich history of success at the Missouri State Cross Country meet. Of the approximately 70 Class 5 teams who enter the District meet, 16 teams qualify for State. Each year, a program goal of ours is to qualify as a team to compete in the State Championship, something we have been able to do every year consecutively since 1993.

 

Workout Records

We maintain team records for two staples of our program: 800-meter repeats and tempo runs.
