2016 Nike Cross Southwest: A Few Shockers to Stir the Pot of the Expected

What's Next

In two weeks, at least four Southwest region teams and another 10 individuals converge on Portland for a race that will feel very different than this one felt. Portland might have half of Casa Grande's 80+ degress of Fahrenheit on race day, and several inches of rain are in the Portland forecast between now and then. We'll see how the Southwest contingent adjusts, but it's beyond question that the region is sending a serious delegation to Nike Cross Nationals.
