Guadalupe Gallopers Cross Country Team

by Amy Adkins

During after school time, it’s important to ensure programming includes a variety of ways for students be active. The hope is that by providing creative, intentional options to be active, students will be exposed to something that will turn into a healthy, life-long passion. At Guadalupe’s After School Program, students get moving daily with SPARK activities and participate in annual events like Young Dancers.  

Last year students also had the opportunity to become cross-country runners. The Program’s Lead Teacher, Kent Schmitzlead took his passion for distance running and shared it the fifth graders. Starting with a desire to see his students perform better on the Fifth Grade PE Test, this started as an idea and with students running laps around the playground, morphed into an on-going component of the program: the Guadalupe Gallopers Cross Country Team. As an ongoing component of the program the Cross Country Team ran the trails and hills of McLaren Park two to three times per week with students logging in some impressive stats- 5.26 miles with elevation gains of close to 900 feet.
