Cross Country

Cross country is a fall sport that runs from September to early November. Practices are held after school from 3:30 to 4:45 p.m., and athletes will be training five days a week. A typical practice consists of warm-up stretching, a long-distance run of about 3-5 miles, a core workout, and a final stretch routine. Currently, the team has six runners, and each runner is at a different experience level. This makes it the perfect team for both novice and experienced runners. 

We welcome all students and all levels of runners to come on out and join the team. For more information on Cross Cournty at ECS, please email Coach Cutrona at

Go, Eagles!

About the Coach

Louis Cutrona loves to run. He has experience both as a coach and a runner. He began cross country as a sixth grader and ran through his senior year of high school, competing in many large meets and races. He continued to run on his own throughout college and has completed three half marathons.

Starting three years ago, he began coaching cross country—first at Irmo High School in Columbia, South Carolina and then at West Nairobi School in Nairobi, Kenya. Currently, Mr. Cutrona is training for a ten-mile race in mid-October. “Running is not a hobby for me, but a passion! I love running and pushing myself to new heights. I want to inspire this same passion in my runners when coaching.” We hope so, too, Coach Cutrona!
