In June, Middlebury College senior Katie Carlson decided that when her cross country season came around this fall, she was going to run in the junior varsity boys 8K race at the New England Cross Country Championships on Oct. 11 to see how she'd do. It wasn't that she wanted to compete against the boys. Carlson wanted a chance to see how she'd fare at the 8K distance, because she'd had to race a shorter 6K event all of her college career.

A ton of scorching indoor meets have the leader boards looking completely different
The Sioux Falls Lincoln Boys Cross Country team won their third consecutive SDHSAA State Championship this season and finished 3rd at the Nike Heartland Regional, which consists of the very best teams and individuals from a seven state region. Out of the Nike Heartland Regional, the Patriots qualified for the Nike National Meet, placing 21st in the event. The Patriots were led by Stanford recruit, Will Lauer and a star-studded cast of 2-7's. If we look at performance at the national level, no other team in South Dakota- in any sport-excelled at the US level like Lincoln. Should they have been awarded South Dakota Sportswriter's Boys Team of the Year for 2014?
