Martin VanDerSchouw stepped into the head cross country coaching role with a lot of passion and experience. He started running cross country his senior year of high school and hasn’t looked back since. With only one season under his belt, he was offered full rides at both the University of Utah and the University of Kansas to run. As a self described basketball junkie, his choice was easy.
At Lutheran High, we have welcomed our students and staff back to campus for the Fall 2020 semester. We have made numerous adjustments to create an inclusive environment that is accessible to our families whose students may not be ready or able to attend in-person classes.
