De Smet Jesuit High School Cross Country is committed to developing successful young men on and off the field of competition. The coaching staff is committed to guiding each athlete to reach his fullest potential. We believe each member of the team plays a crucial role toward developing a strong cohesive unit. The program stresses the importance of goal setting, as each individual creates a written set of goals. Since Cross Country is a unique blend of an individual and team sport, each runner’s pursuit toward achieving his goal ultimately leads to the fulfillment of the team’s goal.
Not only is our program goal-orientated, but also it stresses excellence, accountability, dedication, team work, and respect. Ultimately, the De Smet Jesuit Cross Country experience molds young men into life-long runners who are not only successful on the course, but in life. As a Jesuit institution, we believe in the education of the “whole person” and cross country is a tremendous mental and physical challenge. The De Smet Jesuit Cross Country team has been blessed with numerous successful athletes willing to meet the challenge and has a reputation as one of the area’s premier programs. You are now part of this rich history! Welcome to our program – help us continue our tradition!
