Indy Genesis began cross country in 2017 after hearing the need expressed by one family desiring the sport for their daughter. What began as an idea and one team, God grew into a boy and girls varsity teams, boys and girls middle school teams, and now elementary teams. The team has won two Indiana State Championships and one Midwest Cross Country Championship. The team consists of kids new to cross country and those who have been running for years. Practices start in July with meets beginning in August and finishing in October with the Indiana Cross Country State Championships and the Midwest Cross Country Championships.
