2014 Nike Cross Nationals Team Preview

Portland, OR - MileSplit is heading west, as the top teams in the nation descend on Nike Headquarters for the Nike Cross Nationals.  For the first time ever, the meet will be held at Glendoveer Golf Course, a course described as a good footing field filled with rolling hills.  The weather looks to be wet and warm, in preparation for some of the hottest action in the sport all year. We'll be on the scene all weekend long, capturing all the action.

Below, we look at which teams will be coming out, and which teams may be going home, as champions.  18 teams qualified as auto-slots from the 9 regionals around the country, while 4 were selected At-Large.  Commendations go out to the At-Large committee, as their picks look to have been more than fair this year, among some very tough decisions in the final open slots.  So stay tuned all week for our rolling coverage, and join us this Saturday, for the Nike Cross Nationals.

*We'd like to award @davistrackandxc as the Team Twitter Page National Champions, as their consistently excellent photos can be seen highlighted below.
