Girls Cross Country

Girls Cross Country

Ashley Mains

With Ms. Lyster as the coach, the girls on Cross Country practice behind the fields after school. 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls can try out for the team. There are only 16 girls on the team  this year, but they have had 50 girls on the team in the past! They train by doing lots of running, static & dynamic training, plus some yoga.

Ms. Lyster said, “It’s a lot of fun!”

Some fun facts about Ms. Lyster is she loves to run, which makes it easier to make connections with her athletes outside of the classroom. She has also been teaching here at TOIS for 20 years.
