Cross Country

2017 Season Summary:

Our Dialectic teams completed in several meets including Norman High, Norman North, Watonga, and Weatherford meets. Several members of the team also competed in the HCAA State Cross Country Meet in Broken Arrow. During the season, every runner set a personal record. In a extremely competitive field, we even had a runner finish in the top ten. Our runners had a great season and represented The Academy with honor and pride.

Teaching in the dialectic and rhetoric schools for roughly 13ish years at the Academy, Josh Spears also serves as head dialectic track coach and assistant cross country coach.  He grew up playing and loving sports, especially football and track (and even a brief stint in very, very small college baseball--with mixed results).  Eventually his love for these sports and their athletes led to coaching opportunities in both beginning in the late 90's and (clearly) continuing through his time at the Academy.
