2016 Desert Oasis Girls Cross Country Capsule


League: Class 4A Southwest League

Head coach: Jerome Streets, second season

Returning lettermen: Five

Top athletes: Annika Usgaard (Sr.), Jillian Kieffer (Jr.), Madelyn Doerr (So.)

Outlook: Doerr placed 11th in the Sunset Region meet last season and ran in the state meet. Usgaard finished 27th and Kieffer 42nd in the region meet. They’ll lead a team that returns five letter winners in all.

“With five returning cross country varsity letter winners and the addition of several girls from the track program, we look to continue to build the cross country program into a competitive program,” Streets said. “Our goal is to compete for a spot in the state meet.”
