Wood Report: NCAA Cross Country Championship Women’s Team Projections

The 2017 NCAA Cross Country Championships are here. It’s been a long time coming. I can think back upon opening Excel in the summer to start up on crunching the numbers for this but it’s finally real. In the very first rankings, I left out BYU because I didn’t want to show any bias and didn’t want it to have an impact on the team seeing the numbers but word gets around and the team showed how good it was so it would be silly not to include them. For those curious on the method to the madness, here is the introductory post on how I’ve devised my rankings and ratings from back in September. We’ll see how right and how wrong I am on Saturday. Regardless of my personal results, we are in for a thrilling race and one of the best in years on both the individual and team levels.

You’ll hear from me again after the NCAA cross country championships when we wrap up all the action but if this is one of the last things that you read from me, thank you for following along all season. You can reach me at @Wood_Report on Twitter. If you’re in Louisville, say what’s up. I’ll be the tall guy in BYU apparel.

This is going to be an awesome race. Here are the official team projections for the 2017 NCAA Cross Country National Championship.
