With the start of the academic school year just around the corner, the Pella Christian cross country teams are continuing to work to prepare themselves for the athletic portion of their school year’s as well.

Eagles’ Head Coach Jocilyn Meinders says most members of the boys and girls squads have established a good base with their summer workouts and says their early practices have consisted of re-visiting the mental aspects of cross country – including race strategy – as well as continuing to develop running form to help make her athletes more efficient runners.

Meinders says she’s also working on finding ways to build team unity in each of the squads so that they support each other and work hard as a team to make each individual better.
