Our girls' Cross Country program has had a tradition of success. We have achieved four league titles, two CIF champion titles and one state championship title. Please navigate through our site to learn more about our program.
The boys' program owns four team league championships, eight league runner-up places, 16 C.I.F. appearances, 12 C.I.F Finals appearances which includes one C.I.F Championship, three second place finishes, one third place and one fourth place finish. Our trips to the State Meet number six for the team and six other appearances for individuals. There have been four individual C.I.F Champions in the history of the school, Michael Murray in 1994 & 1995, Steven Murray in 2000 & Mike Powers in 2002. In 2005 the Eagles had their first Orange County Champion when Julian de Rubira won the sweepstakes race in the time of 15:00. Julian also became the 3rd Orange County Runner of the Year, after the Murray brothers, Michael in 1995 & Steven in 2000. The Eagles nearly had their first Olympian when Ryan Martin '06 came within one place of making the London Olympics with his 4th place finish at the Olympic Trials.
