How important would creating a Latin club at your school be? Also how important would being captain of your cross country for three years?

Captain of the cross country team for 3 years shows dedication and leadership, but no more so than the thousands of other qualified applicants who also happen to be captains of a few things.

Creating a latin club will help if you've done significant amounts of work in organizing and maintaining it, such as holding events that the entire high school attended, organizing meetings, holding a fundraiser perhaps, etc. in which case you would attach a note to your application explaining what you did, or even make it the focus of your essay. Creating a latin club in and of itself is not very distinguishable from those thousands of other applicants.

Could it be considered a hook?
