When you join our team, you become a visible representative of our school and our community. People are going to judge the entire Watchung Hills community based on your behavior.
So take advantage of this opportunity! When spectators watch you race and give your all through the finish line, and then show great sportsmanship by thanking and congratulating your competitors, they will think, "That's a Watchung Hills kid. Great school, and a great cross country program."
