Congratulations to the #ALAcoyoteCrossCountry team with the official end to its season at the State Meet on Nov. 10. Special congrats to Abbey, who placed in the top 2/3 of the state qualifiers in Division IV! View photos

"This year we had sixteen male runners (three seniors, four juniors, seven sophomores, two freshmen) and nine female runners (one senior, two juniors, six sophomores). Almost half of our team this year ran cross country for the first time and more than half were sophomores, which is encouraging for the future of this program. The whole team had consistent improvement throughout the entire season and represented their Savior at every meet. This is truly a special group of kids who maintain a positive attitude all season long. Thank you to all the parents and fans for all of your help this year with planning meals, carpooling, helping with the home meet, driving the bus, and all of your encouragement. Mish Aleisa coached the team this year and was joined halfway through the season by Jackson Preston, a 2018 graduate of ALA. We are always grateful for the help we receive from alumni. Thank you everyone for a great season!"

ALA COYOTE CHARACTER AWARD is given to the student-athlete who best exemplifies Christian character, servant-leadership, dedication to academic work, commitment to his/her faith and commitment to the team. This year's Coyote Character Award is given to:
  • Boys Varsity - Hans B
  • Girls Varsity - Hannah H

Congratulations to our “Competitors of the Week!”
New this year, the athletic program has launched a "Competitor of the Week" award through our Character Matters program. Each award session recognizes a different character quality.
ALA athletics promotes character, integrity, virtue, and substance in our players. Character is the difference maker, not only to improve performance, attitude, and teamwork, but also to produce quality people on and off the playing fields.
