Message from Head Coach, Tom Fritzius
 
Welcome, this is an introduction for the incoming 2018 freshmen to the Culver City High School Cross Country (XC) Team.  First let me thank you for your interest in a sport the gets very little publicity but probably has a greater impact on student athletes than any other sport offered by Culver City High School.  It is probably the only truly co-ed sport at Culver City High School.  The boys and girls train together and compete at the same events. They develop social skills as well as athletic skills.  The boys respect the girls to a higher degree than anywhere else because the girls can compete on the same level as the boys.  In fact, several of the girls are faster than some of the boys.

Typically the XC Team has among the highest GPA of all the athletic teams at CCHS.  Recent graduates of our program have gone on to colleges such as M.I.T, Dartmouth, Whittier, Occidental, Oregon, UC Santa Barbara, UC Santa Cruz, UCLA and UC Berkeley. 

Our schedule allows for up to 11 meets annually, 3 of which are league meets taking place on various Wednesdays between September and November.  The remaining 8 meets are invitationals, one held on a Wednesday (The South Bay Cup), with the rest being held on an occasional Friday night or on Saturdays.  If we are successful in our league finals competition (3rd place or better) we advance to CIF prelims and finals before moving onto the State meet held at Woodward Park in Fresno.

In order to participate in the XC summer program as well as the scheduled events during the year, all athletes must be cleared athletically, including an annual physical. Parents clear athletes for participation at athleticclearance.com Athletes attending the summer practices need to have GOOD running shoes and bring water. Practices will usually last about and hour and a half and will on occasion be held at our home course at Kenneth Hahn Park. We will teach your children about hydration, diet, breathing, and yes, even how to tie their shoes.

I admit to being biased, but you will not find a better group of student athletes at Culver City High School than the family of the XC team.
Any questions can be directed to me with by email to tfritzius@yahoo.com  or by cell phone (310) 339-9860.
Assistant Coaches: Steven Heyl, Robert Heyl
