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.

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

Yulimar Rojas Sets Indoor Triple Jump World Record In Madrid

Venezuelan Yulimar Rojas set the women’s indoor triple jump world record on Friday in Madrid with a 15.43m leap. With it, the 24-year-old eclipsed Tatyana Lebedeva’s 15.36m mark that had stood since 2004.

Ababel Yeshaneh, Not Brigid Kosgei, Sets Half Marathon World Record

What was expected to be a coronation of marathon world record holder Brigid Kosgei as the half marathon queen instead turned into an introduction of a worthy counterpart as Ethiopian Ababel Yeshaneh stunned the Kenyan on Friday morning (Thursday night in the U.S.) at the Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Half Marathon by setting a 64:31 world record.

Joshua Cheptegei Smashes Road 5k World Record In 12:51

A little over a month after Rhonex Kipruto took down Joshua Cheptegei’s road 10k world record, the Ugandan has answered back in a big way by running 12:51 on Sunday in Monaco to smash Kipruto’s 5k world record. Cheptegei cut a whopping 27 seconds off the 13:18 that the Kenyan ran on Jan. 12, a run that came en route to Kipruto’s 26:24 10k record.

Mondo Does It Again, Breaks Pole Vault World Record

null

Mondo Duplantis is ushering in a new era of the pole vault, one centimeter at a time. Just a week removed from his world record clearance of 6.17m, the 20-year-old vaulted 6.18m at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Glasgow.

U.S. Indoor Women's Preview: Can Purrier Chase Down Houlihan?

The most interesting match-up of the indoor season materialized quickly. Last Saturday evening at the Millrose Games, Elinor Purrier dropped a stunning 4:16.85 mile to break the American record and dispatch a stacked field in a race that turned into a festival of personal bests and national records. It was a career-defining race for Purrier. A run fast enough to legitimately raise the question if she could beat America’s best mid-distance runner, Shelby Houlihan. This weekend at the US Indoor Championships in Albuquerque, Purrier will have two chances (the 3000m on Friday and the 1500m on Saturday) to pull it off.
