East High School is proud to offer girls cross country. Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union sanctions our high school sports for girls. Our teams compete in the Missouri River Conference. Through involvement in athletics, students learn valuable life skills, including teamwork, leadership, and commitment.
Student-athletes give their all, both on and off the course. Countless hours go into strength, conditioning, and practice to build strong athletes that are prepared to compete. Likewise, our athletes fulfill academic requirements in order to participate in sports.
Our students are gracious in victory and defeat. While we compete to win, our athletes know, it’s how you play the game that matters.
