Varsity Cross Country

Team Overview


The overall goal of the Trinity-Pawling cross country program is to provide a supportive environment where young men can grow as student-athletes. Runners of all abilities are encouraged to participate. Student-athletes are encouraged to formulate both individual and team goals and are provided with an appropriate training program to reach their goals. 


Our cross country program competes in regular season meets against Founders League schools. The team also competes in both the Founders League and NEPSTA Division I Championship meets at the end of each season.


The cross country coaching staff works with each runner to monitor his progress and support his improvement. Ultimately, success is defined by individual growth and a growing appreciation for the sport.
