  • Cross Country Varsity

    2021 - 2022

    Varsity Cross Country, formed in 1973 by Brother Paul Cawthorne, S. J., is currently in its 46th season at Loyola. Head Coach Jose Albornoz is now in his 35th year with the program. In his time at Loyola, Coach Albornoz’s teams have won 16 MIAA/MSA championships to bring the program's total championships to 17 since its inception. Coach Albornoz was named the Baltimore Sun Metro Coach of the Year (1989), and Baltimore County Coach of the Year (1997, 2003 and 2005) in previous seasons. In 2018, Loyola defended it's 2017 championship with a 2-point win over Calvert Hall. That win marked the 8th title in 10 years for the Dons!

    While all athletes, including novices, are welcome, highly motivated athletes should prepare for the upcoming season by logging summer mileage. Students prepared for the fall will be able to handle 25 miles per week to begin the season at August try-outs. Students should be able to handle a pace from 7 to 7:30 minutes per mile. Varsity and JV run in the MIAA 'A' Conference at a distance of 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) each race.

    In addition to cross country, Loyola offers opportunities in Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field. Students may try out for the team after being cut from other sports. The cross country team welcomes those athletes at any time in the weeks following final cuts. All students are encouraged to consider the running programs at Loyola.
