2021 Season Preview
The 2021 season looks promising with 8 of the 11 members as returners from last year, showing a strong summer of training. The new additions to the team: Kylie Kanaar, Fallon Lavine and Meadow Millett should help the Bobcats make a run at the Region 8 title. Syndey Stoltzfoos and Katerina Dobkowski are back to try to earn All Region Honors for a second consecutive year. The team competes at Apalachee Regional Park three times this season in preparation for the 2022 NJCAA 5k National meet being held at the park.
PHSC's women's cross country program was created in 2005 and became the first cross country program in the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA). Since the inaugural season, nine other FCSAA programs have joined this growing sport. Under the direction of head coach, Jacki Wachtel, PHSC consistently ranks nationally in the top twenty-five and has won the NJCAA Region VIII cross country championship four consecutive years (2016-2019).
