The Harrier Rankings
Super 25 national team rankings of the 2004 cross country season
2004 Super 25 #2 - Sep 20
by Marc Bloom, editor, The Harrier

Saratoga Springs NY girls and York Elmhurst IL boys retain the US#1 ranking, but early season results shook up the rest of the lists. Six new teams moved into the boys top 10 -- Fayetteville-Manlius NY, Mountain View UT, Jesuit Tampa FL, Marshall MN, Milford MI, and Cedar Cliff PA. The girls rankings were more steady, with three new teams in the top 10 -- Fountain Valley CA, West Plains MO, and Kingwood TX.

EDITOR'S NOTE - There are timing differences between the Super 25 and the NTN regional rankings, so there will be occasions when it looks as if there are discrepancies between the two. These discrepancies should fade when the season nears conclusion. John Dye
