Welcome to team page for The White Mountain School cross country program. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions about our program. We look forward to learning more about you and your interest in running.
Spurred by the interest of a few dedicated runners the WMS Cross Country Team began its inaugural season in September of 2011. The effort and dedication of this team is simply incredible. The team competes weekly as a varsity program in the Lakes Region League against schools two or three times our size. The Cross-Country Team enjoys the advantage of an amazing variety of trails (and hills) for training both right on our campus and in the immediate area. They can be seen running up local ski areas or doing interval work on the miles of trails that circle our 220-acre campus and the conservation land adjacent to it.
In 2011, the WMS Girls Team was Lakes Region Champions! This exciting result is the school's first Lakes Region Championship in any sport in almost 10 years and is an amazing feat, especially in the program's first season. More impressive, however, was the sportsmanship and camaraderie that this team made a part of their daily routine despite the rigors of training in all conditions. The Cross-Country Team also donates a lot of time to local trail maintenance, mapping, and sign creation.
Founded in 1886 and set in the beautiful White Mountains of northern New Hampshire, The White Mountain School is a coeducational college-preparatory boarding and day school for students grades 9-12/PG.
