2015 XC TEAM GOALS
2015 RIVERTON XC TEAM PHILOSOPHY
We are Riverton Cross Country. We are The Pack. We are a team through everything. We conquer together. We sacrifice our own comfort for each other. We work our hardest because we trust each other and the team depends on us. The wolf avoids easy. The wolf is excited for challenges and thrives when competition is high. The wolf is hard working, determined, persistent, passionate, resilient, puts the packs needs before their own and is willing to sacrifice short term gratification for long term success. The wolf strives to be the best they can be to strengthen the pack. The wolf’s hard work, desire, and heart allow them to triumph against overwhelming odds. We work hard even when it’s inconvenient. We are 24 hour athletes. As a pack, we avoid mediocrity, which is developed through jealousy, spite and comparison. We don’t make excuses. Others success doesn’t take away from our own. Our success comes not by tarring others down rather by building them up. Success is in the consistent effort and comradery, not the result. Our success comes by consistent practice day in and day out months and years before it counts. We run for ourselves, for our family, for our community. We run for each other. We run to pave a path for those behind us. We run to leave a legacy. We are Riverton Cross Country. We are The Pack.
