Varsity Cross Country Poem:  This poem was written by Katie Cousineau for our team.  

We run & run & run some more, We just run ourselves into the floor, For miles & miles we go, but Adam always runs more, ya know.  Kelli, yeah, she's always winnin', but so does Amanda, so don't be trippin'!  Quickly Tanner's running past, & Robert Gertz is far from last.  Watch out for Cori, she's zooming by, While Kirsten seems to really fly.  Here comes Allen speeding through, & Kenny's a great addition to the crew.  Jacobs running rather speedy, leaving others feeling needy.  Alex keeps on going, it seems, & Katie backs up all the teams.  We're Varsity Cross Country so run if you must, So you best watch out, or you'll eat our dust!
