The Devils’ Advocate
There are Red Devils today who are sprinting to the finish line just to bring home a win. Cross Country is a great sport. With Coach Romero coaching the ladies and Coach Howard coaching the guys, Sweetwater has a great team. For this sport, there is no trying out; the only thing you need to do is compromise. As Coach Romero always says, “We are not here to scare you.” The purpose of this sport is to be able to push yourself to limits you didn’t know you had. The goal is always to beat your own time to improve yourself.
Cross Country Devils meet every day after school at 3 p.m. on the field. These Red Devils work very hard every day; they devote their time to this sport in order to win. Cross Country teammates work out from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. They are so devoted that they even manage to make it to practices on Saturdays. On Saturdays these Red Devils meet up at 7 a.m. on the football field.
Like Coach Romero says, “Cross country is a commitment.”
Students must show up every day from Monday through Saturday to train. Cross Country teammates are preparing for their first race of the year. They will have their first race in a couple weeks, so Red Devils, as a unified school, please come out and support the Cross Country team.
