  • Cross Country - Boys Varsity

    2020 - 2021
    Head Coach: Joe Swagart

    The Bayside Academy cross country varsity team consists of 7th–12th students and competes in the 4A classification of the AHSAA. The program practices at the Bayside track.

    Since 1997, Bayside’s boys cross country has been one of the strongest teams in its classification, qualifying a team for State 19 times with an average finish of fifth place. Despite a 2020 season plagued by COVID, three hurricanes, numerous injuries, and continual schedule changes, the boys continued to push and grow from each experience and qualified for the State Meet for the fifth consecutive year. They finished 8th overall at State, led by sophomore Ty Postle, who earned All-State honors by placing 13th overall. The boys finished second at Sectionals and 4th at Baldwin County Championships.
