GirlsCCFor over a decade, the Waukee Warrior Girls and Boys Cross Country programs have been among the state’s most consistently successful cross country programs.

A fixture in the state’s top 10 rankings, the girls’ team has made 14 consecutive State Meet appearances. The girls best finish at the state meet was third in 2017. In addition to their six regional titles, Warriors have also won the conference meet seven times.

The boys’ team have made an appearance at the state meet in 12 of the past 13 seasons. The boys’ third-place finish at the 2007 state meet is the program’s highest state finish. The Warriors have won seven District titles and six conference championships since 2007.

BoysCCWarrior’s successes in both programs can be directly attributed to dedicated athletes that have embraced the physical and mental challenges associated with cross country. A commitment to off-season conditioning and training methodology focused on patient progression prepares athletes for high school success, readies athletes for collegiate competition, and provides a foundation for a lifetime of running enjoyment.

A successful tradition, combined with a coaching staff that values all athletes and emphasizes competing at their fullest potential, has led to increased participation and cemented Waukee Warriors as one of the largest programs in the state. Competitive opportunities exist for all athletes grade 8-12 regardless of ability or prior running experience.
