SLUH's first Cross Country team competed in 1944. With there being no team for two years in the late 1950s, the 2020 season will be our program's 75th season.

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, DeSmet, Vianney, CBC, and Chaminade - five of the largest all-male Catholic schools in St. Louis. The MCC has offered Cross Country as an interscholastic activity since 1992, and SLUH has a prolonged tradition of success among its competitors.

District is now the one and only qualifying meet to get to State, so the margin for error is razor thin. Around Missouri, there are eight Districts in the large school Class 4 - SLUH's class. Every school with a cross country team is eligible to compete at their District meet. In the 2019 season, 103 Class 4 schools took to the line at Districts - about 13 schools per District. The top two teams from each District (and any individuals in the top 30 from non-qualifying teams) qualify to State. That qualifies 16 teams, plus individuals, to compete at the State Championship.
SLUH has a rich history of success at the State Cross Country meet. Of the approximately 100 Class 4 teams who enter the District meet, 16 teams qualify through to 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. View our historical team and individual performances at State here.
