NTN Heartland Rankings - Nov 26, 2004

The NTN regional rankings are the basis of the NTN team selection process. The top two teams in each region at the end of the season will be invited to compete in the Nike Team Nationals in Portland Dec. 4. The third and fourth place teams in each region are considered for the four national at-large selections.

NOTE: Teams will compete as USATF clubs, so team names are shown as a club rather than the high school of the runners.
