Welcome to the La Salle High School Cross Country (XC) Web Site.  The Cross Country Lancers have a rich history.  We promote hard work - athletically, academically, and spiritually.  Our team members strive to be winners on the course and off.  Led by Head Coach Frank Russo since 1982, we always compete at 100%, yet expect all of our runners to demonstrate exemplary sportsmanship at all times.  It's a formula that has made the LaSalle running program the best in Cincinnati.

It's not ALL about the running.  La Salle cross country fans are known for "doing
it up right".  There's usually  food involved, and a large following for the team. 

Many cross country courses are known for a distinct feature.

Greenville Bridge



Riffle Hill

When you talk about running in Greenville, this is probably the first thing that comes to mind.  Sure it's picturesque and harmless looking, but when hundreds of runners cross this bridge, it comes to life, bouncing and swaying.  What are you supposed to do? Well, you cross that bridge when you come to it (twice).

Much like the Greenville course is known for its bridge, Indian Riffle Park in Kettering, OH is know for "The Hill".  It looks big here.  After running 4K, it looks huge!
