Cross Country was one of the first high school sports to return to competition with a one month season that ran February 13, 2021 through March 9, 2021. Immediately following, the track team began their season by practicing for their first meet on April 17, 2021; and recently had league finals on May 28, 2021. Both teams were led by long-time coach George Green with assistant coaches John Downey and new CHS science teacher Andrea Hughes.
With overlapping high school sports seasons this year, cross country and track had smaller rosters but benefited from the participation of six graduating seniors.
