Nike Cross Nationals Southwest Regional

Automatic Girls Team Qualifiers

PLACE SCHOOL/CLUB STATE POINTS
1 Battle Mountain/Vail Valley Running Club CO 97
2 Mountain Vista/Vista Nation XC CO 124
​At-large qualifier: Broomfield, CO (3rd)
​From MileSplit: Broomfield placed third at Pat Patten earlier this season, tying the score of NXR Southwest winner Battle Mountain. The Colorado state runners-up may have been aided by their seventh-place showing at NXN last year, which they also qualified for via a wild-card bid.

Automatic Boys Team Qualifiers

PLACE SCHOOL/CLUB STATE POINTS
1 Mountain Vista/Vista Nation XC CO 80
2 Springville/Springville Cross Country UT 149
​At-large qualifier: Timpanogos High, UT (3rd)
​From MileSplit: Timpanogos had perhaps the strongest resume of any of the boys wild card contenders, having beaten NXN auto-qualifiers Springville and Central Valley at Bob Firman earlier this season. They placed third in the Utah state meet merge behind Springville and American Fork, but proceeded to trounce American Fork at NXR Southwest. None of these teams were locks for wild card bids, but Timpanogos wasn't far off.

​At-large qualifier:​ ​Desert Vista, AZ (4th)
​From MileSplit: Desert Vista certainly qualifies as the most shocking wild card bid on the boys side (sorry, Burnt Hills and Lyons Township). The Arizona state champs are going to NXN off the strength of their performance at Woodbridge, where they placed second behind Great Oak and soundly defeated several California powerhouses plus Texas's Southlake Carroll, which earned an auto-bid by placing second at NXR South.

Nike Cross Nationals New York Regional

Automatic Girls Team Qualifiers

PLACE SCHOOL/CLUB STATE POINTS
1 Fayetteville-Manlius NY 23
2 Liverpool Ny 84
​At-large qualifier: Saratoga Springs, NY (3rd)
​From MileSplit: Saratoga Springs took home a surprise victory at the New York Federation Championships last weekend and beat a ton of quality opponents at NXR New York. The Blue Streaks also won the prestigious Ocean State XC Invitational back in September. Beyond that, their resume isn't particularly impressive, but New York always gets a wild card bid.

Nike Cross Nationals Southeast Regional

Automatic Girls Team Qualifiers

PLACE SCHOOL/CLUB STATE POINTS
1 Cardinal Gibbons/Raleigh Catholic NC 120
2 duPont Manual/Louisville Rams KY 148
​At-large qualifier: Blacksburg, VA
​From MileSplit: Blacksburg defeated a deep field to win Great American last month and dominated in-state competition throughout the season. They were picked by many to win NXR Southeast but have still managed to qualify for NXN for the sixth year in a row via a wild card bid.

Automatic Boys Team Qualifiers

PLACE SCHOOL/CLUB STATE POINTS
1 Loudoun Valley/The Jungle TC VA 72
2 Bolles/Bulldog XC Club FL 118
​At-large qualifier: Green Hope, NC (3rd)
​From MileSplit: Green Hope placed second to Flo50 No. 2 Loudoun Valley in a somewhat close race at Great American, where they absolutely destroyed Bolles, which earned an auto-bid to NXN by placing second in the Southeast region. One week later, they beat Bolles and Corning at Manhattan -- again, both teams that earned auto-bids to NXN. Their North Carolina state championship doesn't hurt, either.

Girls Individual Qualifiers

PLACE NAME GRADE SCHOOL TIME
1 Lydia Olivere 2018 Padua Academy, DE 17:21.5
2 Sasha Neglia 2020 Dobyns Bennett High School, TN 17:27.1

7 Garrison Clark 2019 Severna Park, MD 15:12.4
8 Yared Mekonnen 2018 Thomas Edison, VA 15:13.6

California State XC Championships

Automatic Girls Team Qualifiers

PLACE SCHOOL/CLUB STATE POINTS
1 Great Oak/Temecula XC CA 1st in DI
2 Buchanan CA 2nd in DI
​At-large qualifier: Claremont High, CA (3rd)
​From MileSplit: As with the boys, you can typically pencil in California for at least one NXN wild card bid on the girls side as well. In addition to their third-place showing in the CIF state meet merge, Claremont scored a big win back in September at Bob Firman, where they took down Bozeman and Mountain View. They also defeated Buchanan at Clovis and placed second at Mt. SAC.

Automatic Boys Team Qualifiers

PLACE SCHOOL/CLUB STATE POINTS
1 Great Oak/Temecula XC CA 1st in DI
2 Eleanor Roosevelt CA 2nd in DI
​At-large qualifier: St. Francis Mountain View, CA (3rd)
​From MileSplit: California was always going to receive at least one wild card bid to NXN, and St. Francis Mountain View placed the highest of any of the contending teams in the CIF state meet merge. In doing so, they defeated a number of strong opponents, including Flo50 staples Loyola and Dana Hills.

Individual Qualifiers TBA

Three Big Questions Ahead Of The OSU Invitational

Ryan Raff

In a year in which the NCAA indoor, outdoor and cross country championships have been canceled due to COVID-19, it’s safe to say that a mid-October invitational cross country meet has never been more anticipated than Saturday’s OSU Invitational in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Which Of The 2020 World Records Is Best?

Joshua Cheptegei, Mondo Duplantis

For a year in which both the world indoor championships and the Olympic Games were postponed, 2020 has seen its fair share of world records. (Of course, one could argue that those events being postponed aided in world record achievement, particularly in the cases of Joshua Cheptegei and Letesenbet Gidey.) A season with so much history has begged a question: which among these world records is the best?
