Cross Country | Girls
The Elm Middle School girls cross country program features a single team that incorporates 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Practice begins in August, followed by a season that lasts from early September to early October.
The season culminates in a title meet that determines the champions of the Leyden-Norwood Athletic Conference (LNAC). In that meet, 6th graders run as a team against other 6th graders, and 7th/8th graders run as a team against other 7th/8th graders.
Students from all three of our grade levels are eligible to try out. Prospective team members must submit a completed pre-participation physical exam form and a signed concussion information sheet if they want to play a fall sport.
Meets generally begin at 4 p.m., and they consist of separate races for the conference's girls and boys teams, with girls competing first. Unless otherwise noted, regular-season and end-of-season meets take place at Grant Park, 44 W. Golfview Drive, Northlake.
