Out of the NXN Heartland Region, the Wayzata boys of Minnesota are looking to enjoy similar success as their female counterparts enjoyed last year (NXN champions) and bringing back 6 of their top 7 from a 2013 national qualifying squad puts them in great position to be one of the nation's best programs and among the top 5 title contenders this fall at Nike Cross Nationals.

A list of the top 25 fastest returning boys cross country teams within the states of the NXN Heartland Region including Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. List is generated by using the average time of the top 5 returnees on each team from their 2013 XC season 5K bests. Note that these are not subjective rankings, which we will produce during the season, but a guide to show some of the top teams coming back in the region.

Fastest Returning Teams by State: Iowa - Kansas - Minnesota - Nebraska - North Dakota - South Dakota - Wisconsin
