THE WEST WAY
Our team first vibe means everything to WFHSXC. We will celebrate every runner's journey towards finding their best self. WFHSXC state results rank with the best in 7A.
We will strive for team excellence at all levels. In 2020, our average team score at region was 2nd best behind Lambert. In 2021? We aspire to be first.
We can be both very good friends and very good runners all at the same time. Pursuit of team friendly culture and championship level performance are not mutually exclusive goals but are instead symbiotic

The 1 mile splits and place info is 100%.
WHO ARE WE? WEST!
DOG LOOP TEMPO #1
6/24/21. First time to collect valuable training information for the 2021 squad. How'd it go?
Every single person who ran was faster than same workout late July 2020! That is super cool. Running is a competition with yourself to see just how good you can become.
7/19/21. Good to see good results post 7/4 "dead week".
Team still figuring out tempo pace/effort.
Some did the DOUBLE DOG.
UNICOI TIME TRIAL
The purpose of team retreat is to get to know each other better and start to build solid relationships that make a team something more than team in name only.
The time trial gives us a "dress rehearsal" for how WFHSXC prepares for game day.
Good efforts by the athletes although evaluating is tough with no competition from other teams and an imperfect race distance. At the end of the day XC is about the battle for finish place, not times.
