Cross Country

Coach Philomena Loy has a true love of running. This can be seen in her coaching philosophy - that student-athletes should be provided the opportunity to learn a life-long pursuit that will elevate their physical health and provide them with opportunities for competition, activity, and enjoyment.  Every Cross Country runner begins at his or her level of achievement and our goal is to supervise a journey that maximizes their accomplishments.

Cross Country is both a team and an individual competition.  As a team, we compete against a range of public and non-public schools on a variety of courses, including meets on nationally recognized courses. Our goal is to win every meet, and within each race each individual seeks to run a competitive race that optimizes his or her training.

After graduation from Rutgers Prep, our runners in the past four years have been part of Cross Country Teams at West Point, Gettysburg, Salisbury, and Franklin and Marshall.  We have a recent graduate who is the head coach of a Division III school at the age of 25, and we have had countless runners who have participated in 5K, 10K, half marathons and marathons in recent years.

For the past three years we have had a runner qualify for the Meet of Champions and recently sent a runner to the Nike Northeast Regional Finals.
