Cross Country

Sandpoint High School Cross Country (SHSXC) has a rich tradition dating back to its start in 1985, with combined results of 29 District Team Championship, 15 State trophies, and 3 State Championships. We are proud of our strong, united teams and work hard to foster an environment that celebrates building each other up and celebrating everyone's success. We have also had 28 Valedictorians and Salutatorians on the team, showing that the discipline and hard work to be successful occurs in all aspects of a student-athletes' life.

If you join SHSXC, expect to be challenged and to be part of something incredibly rewarding. It will be one of the hardest things you will ever do, but will also be something you are incredibly proud of.
