Cross Country

2014, St. Matthew Cross Country

Cross Country is a huge sport in Ohio. At Bishop Hartley, it is the school’s largest sport. Cross-Country is competed in in nearly every middle school, high school and college in the state and country. It teaches character, work ethic and develops cardiovascular fitness that will improve performance in nearly every other sport.

We realize there are many other fall sports at St. Matthew and we will accommodate all schedules so that children have the opportunity to compete in multiple sports.
