FloTrack's NCAA Individual Qualifiers Projections

NCAA XC: Dynasties On The Line

The NCAA selects 38 individuals to race at the NCAA Championships along with the 31 selected teams. Individuals are automatically selected if they finish in the top-25 of their region and are one of the four highest finishing athletes not on an NCAA selected team. A few remaining at-large individuals are then selected via best regional finish to fill the field to 38 individuals per gender.

Based on our latest Kolas Projections here are the athletes we predict will earn an individual selection to NCAAs.
