This young lady and amazing athlete has committed to NDSU! So proud of her hard work and grateful for all she has contributed to our team.

"Only one school in Minnesota has qualified both their girls and boys cross country teams for the Class A State Cross Country meet every year for the past six years:" - Mark Anderson

It's been an absolutely rewarding and challenging season. Our runners have worked so hard and we are incredibly proud of them.

This season may be over, but we will continue to be united in standing with Ashley Robben, her siblings on our team, and her family as she battles Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She has been such a warrior for this program and we know she can fight through this next battle.

We are grateful for Mark and Niki’s support of our team over the years. And thank Mark for honoring our team and Ashley in this way.

Senior Spotlight: Issiah Tabatt. Inspired by his older brother he joined the XC team as a 5th grader.

His personal highlight of his XC career is the 2021 state race. He got a personal best time for that year and placed 9th, making it on the state podium. His goal is to make it back up there once again this year. And we are cheering for him already!

Help Ashley Fight Leukemia, organized by Renee Kroll 30/10/2023

The Cardinal running family is asking for community support for one of our alummi runners. Ashley Robben ( 23' grad) was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Ashley was a state champion and well decorated Cardinal runner and continued her running career at MSUM. She is currently in treatment in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Her younger brothers, Logan and Dillan are current juniors on the team and will be running next weekend at state.

If you are interested supporting the Robben Family financially a gofundme page has been created:
