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 2022 the team finished a close 2nd at WCAC and was also runner-up in the DC championship. We look forward to a great 2023 season!
That year, 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.
In 2022, the Eagles finished runner-up in both the WCAC and DC championships. Lucas Rohde '24 won the individual title at WCACs.
We look forward to a great season of competition in the fall of 2023! On this page, you'll find the team's schedule and roster, as well as results after each competition.
