Cross Country


The OLW Cross Country Team is made up of 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys and girls.  The season runs from August to mid-October.  We practice 2-3 times a week in the vicinity of the school.  There are approximately 4 meets, usually held on Mondays and are hosted by schools in the North West Catholic Conference (NWCC), including the Conference Meet.  Junior Varsity team members compete on a 1 mile course, while Varsity team members compete on a 2 mile course. Varsity team members can then compete in the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) Sectional meet and attempt to qualify for the IESA State Meet held in Normal, Illinois.

The team is coached by Tricia Stapleton.
