What are practices like?

“Easy,” says Coach Sellers, jokingly. She then starts off again seriously, “I have the athletes change out after school and meet in the back around 3:15 or 3:20. We start with a series of stretches led by our captain, once we finish that I put out mini-hurdles.”

Sellers says that mini-hurdles are an important part of cross country workouts as they help lengthen the runners’ strides.

“After we go through the mini-hurdles a few times I let them get drinks and I send them on a 2-5 mile run,” she said. “Once they come back they cool down a little bit and hydrate themselves, I make them do a few sprints then we hit the grass or commons area and do core-workout. We stretch, give a cheer and that’s a normal practice.”
