The cross country program at Sem has existed for about 25 years. Both teams have been very competitive among smaller schools and have won the division title several times. Many of our runners have gone on to the state championship meet. In addition, Sem’s runners have continued running after graduation and compete in marathons and triathlons. Cross country at Sem is about having fun, developing friendships and a lifelong interest in fitness while being successful academically
