Cross-Country at Covenant gives students an opportunity to compete with Christian coaching and mentorship, while building relationships with teammates. Student-athletes are taught to challenge themselves, support their teammates, and to live out their school motto, “To Glorify God and Enjoy Him forever.” Covenant High School Cross-Country competes in the 1B/2B WIAA division, while competing in Seatac League meets and major invitationals in the region. To prioritize students attending discipleship groups, there is no practice held on Wednesdays.
