Cross Country Opener

Women's Cross-Country team runs

The transition from high school to college can be tough for any student-athlete as they adapt to new teammates, coaches and a higher level of competition.

Cross country is one of the few exceptions to the rule though. After running 5Ks (3.2 miles) in high school, women routinely move up to 6Ks (3.7ish miles) in college, while the men make an even more extreme change, venturing up to 10Ks (6.2 miles) at the conference, regional and national meets.
