Kansas High School Cross Country

The 1st official KSHSAA sponsored state cross country meet was held Nov. 17, 1956 at the Shawnee Country Club in Topeka.    There were 2 classes of schools, A & B, with A being the big schools.   Individual winner of the A race was future Olympic 10000M Champion Billy Mills of Haskell.  Haskell also won the team title in the Class A division. Winning the Class B team title was Maize HS with Delbert Voth of Walton as the individual winner.  Finishing 2nd in the Class B race was Joe Schrag of Norwich.  Joe later became CC and T&F Coach at Topeka West High School and a strong voice for the sport for years.  State CC began for the girls in 1977 with 2 races.  Classes 5A-4A-3A were grouped together and 2A-1A in the other race.  The girls competition quickly expanded to 6 classes the next year with the start of the current 6 Class Classification system beginning in the fall of 1978.  This year the KCCTFCA honors 50 years of state cross country. The KCCTFCA salutes the KSHSAA, all the member schools, all the coaches and athletes who have competed, and all the fans who have attended this exciting and colorful event and have given it such a rich and proud history.
