List of 4 items.

  • Cross Country

    If you are a runner, or want to get into running, you should run on the Saint Joseph Academy cross country team! All are welcome regardless of ability levels. We only ask that you are a responsible, hard-working teammate.

    In high school, the race distance is 3.1 miles. We have 5 different training groups depending on your experience - there is a group for everyone! Everybody travels and competes to all the meets, which are mostly on Saturdays during September and October.

    We have an overnight trip to Pennsylvania for a competition, we have a canoe run, a senior night, and many other activities throughout the season. We also help at the Heroe's Run 5 mile race held at Saint Joseph Academy, so you can get service hours as well!

    Cross country, like all high school sports, meets every day after school. We practice at the Academy, at Mastick park and Memorial Field in the Rocky River Reservation, and other locations as necessary. 

    We are used to having more 50 girls on the team, so there's a good chance you already know someone or will meet a friend that could last a lifetime.

    Head Coach Fred Kieser has been with the team more than 20 years and has seen more than 400 runners come through the program in that time, with most keeping running in their lives well beyond their high school years.

    To join the team simply contact Coach Kieser and show up to summer conditioning ready to get training started. You can contact Coach Kieser via email at fkieser@sja1890.org.

    August 6, 2018 is the first official practice, which will be from 8-10 a.m. at the Academy.
  • Dress Code

    Note: This is the dress code for the 2017-18 school year. The dress code and handbook for the 2018-19 school year will be posted the week of August 1. There may be updates to the dress code from last year.
