  • Watauga High Cross Country

     I hope everyone is getting excited for the new season. Official practices start Thursday August 1 at 5:30pm. We meet in front of the stadium concession stand. Make sure you go online and get the forms filled out. I will need your completed physical (unless you downloaded it to Family ID).

    Below is a link to the new Family ID. It will allow you to fill out all of the forms online instead of having to turn in paperwork. (Heart of the Pioneer participants still need to do this).

    If the link does not work, copy and paste in your browser.



    Welcome to the Watauga High School cross country teams. Everyone is a valued member of the team. Everyone is welcome as long as they get to practice regularly. You will not “sit the bench” on this team. Everyone runs in most of the meets.


    Starting June 17, cross country will be meeting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8:00-10:00am. Meet by the concession stand at the football stadium. 

    There are 2 weeks we cannot meet: July 1-7 and July 15-21. These are "dead periods" for all athletics.


    For more information email mcdonoughr@wataugaschools.org



    Team APP: This will be where we communicate most information about training, schedules, meets, and practice. 

    Watauga XC Team App











    It has workouts for beginners as well as experienced runners. Whether you come to summer practices, you will still need to run. Your body needs you to come into August with a base of running. You will have fewer aches and pains.



    A good pair of training shoes.

    A watch with a stopwatch function (required)

    A water bottle (we will supply the water)
