The women's race is very tight this year as there are seemingly six or seven teams that all have a shot to take home the crown. This may be the closest team race in the history of the championship and will be very fun to watch unfold on Saturday.

#1 Providence 164
With the best 1-2-3 in the country -- Emily Sisson, Sarah Collins, and Laura Nagel -- the Friars control their own destiny this weekend. If their terrible trio have an average day, true freshman Catarina Rocha doesn't blow up in her first NCAAs, and Grace Thek can run just well enough to keep her inside the 100s, Providence will be taking home the national title. The bad news for the Friars is that doing all of that, is not as easy as it seems.


WOW with the #1 Friars

#2 Georgetown - 168
A very, very deep team and the best 1-5 spread in the country really helps Georgetown in terms of their placement on the podium at nationals. A lot will depend on how far up their pack can finish and if they can get out well. If they start poorly, it is really hard to move all five of your athletes through a giant sea of runners. If the Hoyas do get out and move their pack through towards the 40s and 50s, Georgetown could knock off Providence.

#3 Florida State - 173

For the first time in a while at NCAAs, the target is completely off the back of the Seminoles. Florida State has yet to have a great day and is due for a big one at NCAAs. Led by Colleen Quigley and Hannah Walker, FSU is deeper than meets the eye and could sneak up and get Providence or vengeance on Georgetown from Pre-Nats.

#4 Arizona - 198
Maybe the best 1-4 in the country belongs to Arizona as Elvin Kibet, Nicci Corbin, Maria Larsson, and Kayla Beattie are all studs. Much will come down to how well their fifth can run and who will it be. Stephanie Bulder and Hanna Peterson have traded off no. 5 spot duties and one of them will have to run out of their minds to help Arizona win the whole thing.
