How can you argue that when Desert Vista got second at Woodbridge? I feel like that is more of a problem with the Cali NXN qualification system
Well #1, Woodbridge doesn't mean a damn thing since that's not a real race. #2, it matters what you do in November, not in September.
Apparently Woodbridge matters.
Sorry that truth hurts.
So does the fact that if you want in at NXN, 1st or 2nd only please.
Crying about your snowflake on the 4th place regional team is exactly why NXN is flawed. They should stop at 2 teams per region period.
Or better yet, 1st only and then fill the other team slots via speed ratings which are very accurate historically. (This may leave a lot of SE and SO teams out but they're the slowest NXN anyways. SW and Cali will have more teams then, but they should honestly. Of course,
they could fill the rest of the spots with the fastest individuals or keep the field smaller but more elite. (A "national" meet crowning a champion should not be filled with runners who can't break 17 minutes or 19:30, girls.)
