MileSplit’s National Cross Country Rankings, 2012; Girls Teams; as of October 9

These rankings are based on 2012 XC performances to date, particularly in head-to-head competitions; and in a very few cases, when teams have not yet started competition in 2012, based on projections from 2011 XC performances of returning athletes.  The rankings are intended to project where teams will be at the end of the 2012 cross country season
