State Champions Lining Up to Compete at Nike XC Southwest

As we see every year now, the state champion cross country teams from the five states of the Southwest region have been busy getting their registrations in for NXR-Southwest.

With a few days of late registration yet to run, this list of state champion teams (some of which may end up running in the Small-School Championship race) with their athletes registered for the big event on November 21 includes:

From Colorado: Mountain Vista, Broomfield, Durango, Air Academy, Alamosa, Salida

From Utah: Davis, American Fork, Timpanogos, Desert Hills, Pine View

From Nevada: Centennial

From Arizona: Desert Vista, Chandler, Flagstaff

From New Mexico: Hobbs, Cleveland, Los Alamos, Albuquerque Academy, Zuni

Of particular note here is the fact that this will mark the first-ever appearance of Hobbs at Nike Southwest. Hobbs has fielded some very strong boys teams in the past, but never before made the trip all the way across New Mexico to race at Nike XC Southwest.

And, of course, in addition to the state champion teams bearing down on Casa Grande, countless other highly-ranked teams have made their registrations as well. Once again, this promises to be a can't-miss kind of event.

Late registration remains open through 6 PM on November 17.
