Varsity Cross Country · Come Run with Cross Country!!

Welcome back Jackson County!!! The Cross Country team is looking for all athletes and novice runners to make the leap and join our team. You don’t have to be an amazing runner; You just have to come out and give your all. We’re looking for soccer players, wrestlers, swimmers, basketball players, ROTC cadets…anyone willing to put in work and encourage their teammates to become better athletes and runners. If you are even the slightest bit interested, stop by Coach Norton’s room in B5 or Coach Blount’s room in B3 and talk about it. We are practicing everyday from 3:45-5:15. We will come up with a personalized plan based on your ability level and your sport focus. For now, we are meeting in B5 before going down to the track. Be sure your physical is up to date. We will accept new and returning runners all the way up until August 10th. Join the Remind group by texting @jcxc18 to 81010 to get all the important announcements and email me at with any questions. Also, please visit our team blog at 

Jackson County Cross Country had a solid year last season, finishing in the top 15 at State in our classification. We are looking to improve upon that this year by going for the top 10 and contending for top honors in Region 8AAA, but we need YOU to make that happen. Consider adding a sport to your resume this Fall!
Come by and talk to any of us!
