CHICKASHA – Coach Leandra Johnson has announced that open tryouts for USAO’s new cross country team will be March 28.
The tryouts are open to all USAO and high school students. Female athletes will be running a five kilometer — or 3.1 mile — course while male athletes will run an eight kilometer — or five mile — course.
“The two things I look for in recruits is that they are extremely hard working and have good character,” Johnson said.
Johnson said she’d like to see female runners complete in course in 18-25 minutes and male runners finish between 25-34 minutes.
