"I could see four teams in that 40 to 60-point range in a meet this big. It could be like NC State-Florida-Colorado-NAU and all of their runners make up the top 30."
We are set for one of the biggest NCAA cross-country weekends before championship season approaches. The top teams in the country are split between Charlottesville, Virginia for the XC23 Pre-Nationals and Madison, Wisconsin for the Nuttycombe Invitational.
