  • Cross Country - Varsity

    2019 - 2020
    Head Coach: John Ausema

    Gonzaga Cross Country is represented by three teams—Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshman—with a total of nearly 75 runners. Coach John Ausema began coaching the Varsity in 2007, and under his direction the team has won seven WCAC championships in recent years, including in 2019, when the team also took home its fourth straight DCSAA crown.

    In 2019, Senior Cullen Capuano had an incredible year, becoming the first Eagle runner in program history to win all three championship races and was named DCSAA Runner of the Year, 1st Team All-Met, and District of Columbia Gatorade Runner of the Year. Senior Gavin McElhennon and junior Patrick Donnelly made major contributions throughout the season, and finished second and third behind Capuano in the Jesuit Championship. 

    Last season the team also won the 76th Annual Jesuit Championships in New York City in November and Coach Ausema was named the USTFCCCA District of Columbia Coach of the Year for the fifth straight time, as well as the NFHS Mideast Section Coach of the Year.
