High School Summer Coaching






Summer, the time when cross country champions are made! Use this time to get into a summer training plan that will set you up for success this fall cross country season.

Coach Alex Wilson will be heading up this group and will be an invaluable source of information for you or your student-athlete. Alex is a former high school State Champion, a scholarship athlete at Michigan State University (Where he was under the tutelage of the great Walt Drenth), and a former professional runner with the Hansons-Brooks ODP. To top it off, Alex has coached at both the High School and Collegiate levels.
