Nike Cross National Qualifiers, from Heartland Regional

 

The following are the qualifiers from the Nike Cross Heartland Regional, Sioux Falls, SD, November 13 to the NIKE Cross Nationals, Portland, OR, December 3.  The top two teams and five individuals (not on a qualifying team) advance from each of the eight Nike Cross Regionals held nation-wide.

The Heartland Regional brought together the top high school teams and individuals from Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

(By state high school federation rules, high school teams and individuals can not officially participate in post-high school season competitions representing their schools.  Therefore, high school teams were technically representing “clubs” (e.g., Tiger XC club) and individuals competing “unattached; but we’ll identify these clubs/individuals by the associated high schools.)
