Mustang Athletic Teams

Cross Country

Colorado 4A state champions:
Boys - 1999 | Girls  - 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999
The Mustangs continue to work toward being counted among the state’s top programs, winning six Colorado championships, five by the girls, in a state whose competitors have long embraced distance running and are among the best in the U.S. In 2021 and after two seasons of no individual or team qualifiers for the Colorado Championships, Mustangs girls finished in fifth place in Class 4A and boys were 13th. As for 2022, a strong contingent of girls and a group of boys who will gain experience on the fly are set for a return to the postseason. The regular season will run into Oct. 15 and regionals will be Oct. 22. Again, Mullen will be one of the few metropolitan-area teams to compete against mountain teams that do it at altitude. The Colorado Championships will be Oct. 30 at Norris Penrose Event Center.
