In the past decade the Tigers have won 6 league chammpionships, 4 section chammpionships, and finished 2nd at the State Championshps twice. Two Pawling runners, Colby DelBene and Brandon Freyer, have been crowned individual champions and the Tigers have had 9 State medalists. The Tigers have won 11 consecutive league championships, 4 consecutive Section I championships, and in 2012 won the Class C State Championship. At the end of the 2012 season XC Nation ranked the Tigers as #22 in the Nation for schools under 500 enrollment.
The Track team was also re-instated in the spring of 2001 and like the cross country program has had several league championships and 4 Section I championships in the first 10 years of the program. The Tigers have had numerous state medalists in the distance and mid-distances.
Now in their second decade the Tigers continue to have a very competitive team dispite having no track facility on which to practice.
