About UWA Cross Country
Hard work and excellence are words that could be used to describe men's and women's cross country at the University of West Alabama. While consistently competing to be crowned the champions of the Gulf South Conference, the Tigers also continue to soar academically.
The men wrote their place in the university record books by being the first team to win the Gulf South Conference Cross Country Championship in 2014. The desire to win spread to the women's team, as they followed their male counterparts' lead by being crowned the 2015 Gulf South Conference Cross Country Champions.
In addition to the success achieved on the field, the Tigers are known to consistently excel in the classroom. With countless GSC Academic honors, academic sorority and fraternity inductions and Dean's List honors, to name a few, it's safe to say that the UWA men's and women's Cross Country teams take the role of student-athlete seriously.
