Cross Country

Middle school and high school runners have the opportunity to compete in Cross Country.  Cross country is coached by Gary Gabriel.  Coach Gary Gabriel is a former runner and collegiate coach.

This will be the fourth season that the high school cross country runners will compete at the TAPPS State Cross Country Meet.  In our first TAPPS state meet in 2014-2015, Frank Cargile placed tenth.  During the 2015-2016 season, the high school boys finished 5th at the state meet. During the 2016-2017 season, the high school boys finished 2nd at the state meet.  The only girl competing at state, Hannah Slate, placed 8th.

During the 2016-2017 school year, CCS renamed the annual Cornerstone Invitational to the Mills Caraway Cornertone Christian Invitational.  Former Cross Country Coach Mills Caraway began this annual event during the 2007-2008 school year.  Over the years, the attendance at this meet has increased.  Coaches and athletes alike look forward to this annual meet.
