Assumption Cross Country
You've arrived at the Assumption Cross Country team website. Assumption's first Cross Country team was formed in 1981 and in that inaugural year the team won the Regional Championship. Since that time, we've finished in the top three every year since 2005, winning State Championships in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012. This site is not only a source of current season team information, but is also dedicated toward highlighting the accomplishments of the many Assumption Cross Country athletes who have competed since that first season.
AHS CC 4-peat
In closing out the 2013 season, Assumption Cross Country won a 4th consecutive State title and 6th State Championship in 7 years. This also marks 9 consecutive years where the Rockets have finished in the top 3 at State, a strong testimony to the hard work, effort and dedication of many runners who've competed for us over the years. Results from the State Meet can be found at the following link.

2013 National rankings
USA milesplit has now ranked Assumption Cross Country as high as 8th in the country, with at least one other poll showing the team somewhere in the top 25. The team is working hard to justify that ranking by season's end. You can follow us on twitter to keep track of how the team does!

St Francis High School, Our Sister Team
Assumption Cross Country has a sister team relationship with the St Francis High School Cross Country team, a former State Champion girls program in (Sacramento) California. We visited St Francis during the Fall 2007 season and competed in the Granite Bay Invitational, and St Francis visited Louisville in 2010 and competed in our Academy Meet. We'll be travelling back to Sacramento in 2011, with the current plan being that each team will visit the other every 4 years. Here are links to the St Francis Cross Country Team website and St Francis High School website.
