THE INTER ACADEMIC LEAGUE CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONS LIST

  The Inter Academic (Inter-Ac) League was a association of select private schools from the Philadelphia area formed in 1887.  The first two sports were football and track & field with one of the USA oldest football rival game played each year between Penn Charter and Germantown Academy.  There is no record of when cross country was first contested. Boys and Girls member schools are Penn Charter, Germantown Academy, Episcopal, and Springside-Chestnut Hil. Boys only members are Malvern Prep and The Haverford School.  Girls only members are the Academy of Notre Dame, Agnes Irwin and The Baldwin School.  The league championships for Boys and Girls have been held at Belmont Plateau since 2004.
