    Congratulations to CR South Women's Cross Country Team for
       winning the 2022 SOL National Patriot Championship Title!
     Big Shout out to Bailey Gassmann for her 1st place finish at
     the 2022 SOL National Championships. Bailey continued her
     run for glory with a 13th place District performance and an
     impressive 19th place finish at the PIAA State Championships.
     Bailey makes CR South Women's Cross Country history as our
     first PIAA State medalist!  
    The 2022 cross country season is underway! Here's the latest news...
    The start of pre-season, optional practice is Monday, July 11th (7:30-9:30am Mon thru Thurs). 
    Our first pre-season practice will be held at the Northampton Municipal Park (AKA "Blue Park") on Hatboro Road. Directions to the park can be found on this site under Practice Locations/Directions. Practice locations vary throughout the summer based on workout plans and weather conditions. Athletes will be advised of practice locations by the coaching staff and/or team captains prior to each practice. 
    Updates throughout the season will be communicated to athletes and parents on this website as well as TeamSnap.
    Here are some other important dates:
    1) Monday, August 1st: required sports forms due 
    The CR South Athletic Department states, "All fall 2022 paperwork and physicals must be completed on/and uploaded to the ATS Portal by 11:59pm on August 1st."  Please contact athletic trainer, Scott Lisher (slisher@crsd.org), if you did not receive information detailing the process. In order for an athlete to participate in a fall sport, all forms must be submitted/uploaded to the ATS portal 2 weeks prior to the official start of the season. PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association) mandates that June 1, 2022 is the earliest date an athlete can have a physical for the 2022-2023 school year. (physicals from last year will not be accepted). Based on this, make sure the physician's exam is completed sometime between June 1st and August 1st, 2022. 
    2) Mandatory Concussion Education and Impact Testing: module to be completed online-material has been emailed by Scott Lisher to athletes and their primary contact parent. Since cross country is a non-contact sport, only the Concussion Education video and follow-up test is required (the Impact Test is not mandatory).
    3) Monday, August 15th: official start of mandatory cross country practice (7:30-9:30am Mon thru Fri)
    4) Monday, August 29th: start of practice after school 2:40-4:45 (Mon/Wed/Fri) and 3:00-5:00 (Tues/Thur-clinic days)
    If you are interested in distance running, please contact the coaching staff prior to attending practice so we can tell you more about our program. All are welcome to join.
