On day four of the Great Oak Workout Week, we dive into the battle to make the top seven. In a team with as much talent and depth as Great Oak has you've always got to be on your 'A' game if you want to get into or make the varsity top seven. We talked to a few guys who will be in the hunt this season for the Wolf Pack.

Sometimes you don't always get the full picture in one glimpse.
Through the years at MileSplit, we've traveled to various states to shoot Workout Wednesdays to explore how high school programs write, conduct, and implement training for their cross country teams.
Never before, however, have we spent a full week with a team.
That all changed this fall. Starting today, we'll be unveiling our weeklong project with Great Oak High School. MileSplit National Video Producer Bryan Deibel traveled to Temecula, California, to uncover what makes this nationally ranked team--and former Nike Cross Nationals winner--tick on the ground level.
For an entire week, he sat down with head coach Doug Soles, spoke with star athletes like Tori Gaitan and Tyler Tickner, and observed how the Wolfpack trained through the course of a normal 5-day span.
Our release schedule is as follows:
- Monday, September 17: Working Toward Redemption at NXN
- Tuesday, September 18: The Tradition At Great Oak
- Wednesday, September 19: Young Leaders Stepping Up
- Thursday, September 20: The Battle To Make The Varsity 7
- Friday, September 21: Finding The Drive On Race Day
Check out the fourth installment "The Battle To Make The Varsity 7" above and be sure to stay locked on MileSplit the rest of the week as we release these inspiring and informational videos.
If you have thoughts or questions on the project, you can drop us a comment on Facebook, or on Twitter @milesplit.
