MileSplit US Individual National XC Rankings


National Cross Country Individual Rankings



The first of the two national high school cross country championship races were held this past weekend in Portland, Oregon with the Nike Cross Nationals. The boys' race certainly featured many of the nation's best battling it out to the wire, while the girls' race was missing the unofficial "Big 3" in Megan Goethals (MI), Chelsey Sveinsson (TX), and Aisling Cuffe (NY) but stellar depth was found in both races as Foot Locker finalists, All-Americans, and state champions were found deep into the field.


A decent number of runners qualified for both NXN and Foot Locker Nationals who will be making the tough double this weekend in San Diego including MileSplit US #1 and NXN champion Craig Lutz from Texas. Lutz will attempt to become the undisputed #1 ranked runner in the country if he is able to defeat Foot Locker Midwest champion Lukas Verzbicas (IL) and others at Balboa Park on Saturday. The common opponents in a week span for those not making the double should help sort the rankings out in the final edition next week.
