2020-2021 Season Preview
The 2020 season brings on a new set of challenges for the Women’s Cross Country team. This year’s team has 9 new faces out of 11 on the team. Sydney Stoltzfoos and Katerina Dobkowski are the two lone sophomores that will lead the Bobcats this year. The 2020-21 season is the first year in which Division I and II cross country programs will be separated at the National meet. The team hopes to place in the top 5 at the Division 2 meet this year and defend their region 8 title. Top recruits to help back Sydney and Kat are Jensen Mayer (the third Mayer to run for the Bobcats), Emily Jenkins and Jessica Perez.
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).
