Junior High Cross Country


For the 2021 season your coaches will be Alesha Bowers and Julie Cummins. This is Alesha’s fourth year as a math teacher at Bryan High School, and eighth-year teaching overall. This is her fourth year as a junior high cross-country coach, but in previous years I have coached junior high track, bowling, and high school track at the previous school I worked for. I ran cross country when I was in junior high and high school and also graduated from Bryan High School in 2010.

Julie Cummins has been teaching math at Bryan High School for nine years (14 years overall). This is her second year coaching junior high cross-country, and she has previously coached high school cross-country in Indiana, as well as helping with the Bryan Golden Bear Running Club. I am very excited to be a part of the junior high cross-country program at Bryan and look forward to getting to know all of you this upcoming season.


Practices will start Monday, August 2nd, 2021 at 8:00am, and will end approximately at 9:30am.

We will meet at the Jaycee Pavilion by the imagination station and tennis courts. All athletes are expected to attend the first day of practice. If there are any conflicts please have a parent or guardian get in touch with one of the coaches. Also, please have your rides there to pick you up on time. A practice schedule and information will be given at the parents meeting held in July before the fall season starts. Rules and other information will be given out on the first day of practice. Please make sure you have gotten a physical and turn in all paperwork to the athletic office before practices begin August 2nd.

Optional Summer Meet-ups

If you would like to run together this summer, we will meet every Tuesday evening from 7:00-7:45 pm at the Jaycee Pavilion (weather permitting). This is not an official practice, but just an opportunity to run with your teammates. Coach Bowers and/or Coach Cummins will be there to supervise the athletes. Meet-ups will begin June 8 and go through July 27.
