Cross Country

"Running is super challenging, especially over long distances, but the coaches and the other runners help to create an environment that is so positive and encouraging.

Every teammate wants the best for everyone else and is there to encourage you every step of the way. The people on this team have become some of my best friends. I know I can always lean on them, whether literally at the end of a race when my legs give out or just when I need a friend. The thing that makes cross country unique is that it’s more about improving yourself rather than beating everyone else. With each race comes a challenge to be faster than you were before. I also love running for Lipscomb Academy, because it’s a place where we can openly talk about our faith anytime, whether it be on long runs or after practice. It’s a challenge at times, both physically and mentally, to keep pushing yourself, but it’s a lot easier when your best friends are right beside you offering encouragement every step of the way."

Facilities

Human Performance Weight Room

With the renovation of the human performance weight room located at the Upper School, the enhanced performance center is accessible now for the entire student body. The renovations have expedited our ability to install methodologies based around teaching movement, core strength and proper lifting techniques. Sixteen racks, numerous dumbbell and kettlebell racks and increased space give the athletics program the necessary tools to teach effectively.
