  • Cross Country - Girls Varsity

    2020 - 2021
    Head Coach: Joe Swagart

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

    Since 1991, Bayside’s girls cross country has been one of the strongest teams in its classification, qualifying a team for State 29 times and finishing in the top four a total of 23 times.

    In 2020, the girls team qualified for the AHSAA State Meet for the fifth consecutive year. They finished third overall at State, placing four girls in the Top 15 to earn All-State honors. This accomplishment was the first-ever for any Bayside Academy cross country team. The four girls earning All-State honors include 8th grader Catherine Doyle (who placed 9th), 8th grader Annie Midyett (10th), 7th grader Shelby Fargason (14th), and 8th grader Marcella Covington (15th). Each of our Lady Admirals competed with purpose and desire, exceeding expectations. Our girls won Sectionals and finished second at the Baldwin County Championships.
