MileSplit HQ - As Nike Cross Nationals draws closer, and more regional results are sorted out, the question of which four teams will earn an At-Large invitation to the big show is ever looming. Using Speed Ratings, we compared how teams ran at their respective regional, to try and see which teams may get the call on Thanksgiving weekend.
Of course, these are all just speculation. These are in no way affiliated with the selection process. They simply serve as a simplified look at where teams stand heading into NXN.
Note: A Speed Rating is a number attributed to an XC performance, roughly one point per three seconds, adjusted for overall race quality and depth. Using these numbers, we can compare apples to apples, in terms of XC performances.
