Mission Statement
We are the South Lyon High School Men’s Cross Country Team.
We represent all that is good about our school, our team, and ourselves.
We are accepted into a family of boys and a lifelong band of brothers.
As strong individuals, we choose to create a legacy of hard work, positive attitude, and team unity.
Running is our unifying purpose. We do it not because it is easy, but because it is hard.
We compete on this team to show the power of our minds, bodies, and souls.
United at Heart. United to Inspire. United for Victory.
As brothers we run.
