Sandhills School began running cross country in 2012 and competitively in 2016. Our beautiful campus makes the perfect setting to practice long distance running. Sandhills students love to run on our wooded trails. Cross country is a wonderful athletics opportunity for students that want to participate in an individual sport, but still have that team sport feel.

My name is Robert Whetsell, and I've been coaching Cross Country and Track and Field since 2009. I became a certified level 1 U.S. Track and Field coach in 2011. More importantly, I've been working with students at Sandhills School since 2012 and am so excited to get a chance to coach your children in cross country this fall.
Cross Country is an excellent opportunity to build not only physical fitness, but also discipline, teamwork, and perseverance. Our focus will be on creating a positive environment in which students feel both supported and challenged. Practices will feature stretching and strength work in addition to running.
