NXN is the National Championship race for cross country and only two teams in the entire state are guaranteed entry and your boys are one of them!!! They will fly up to Oregon to participate for the first time in school history and is only the second team in Riverside county history to attend!
This was end goal for our 4 year Varsity Boys who set out on a mission to put Roosevelt XC on the map and they sure did that! This group of boys set records since they were freshman as a team and did not stop there. Throughout their 4 year journey they have 3 league titles, 2 Riverside County Team Championships, a CIF Finals Runner Up, a CIF State meet 3rd, and a CIF State Meet Runner Up. This is by far the most successful group in school history in any sport as a team!!
There will be 22 total teams from across the entire USA. There are regional qualifiers and only two teams from each region qualify automatically with 4 at large teams allowed. We qualified as the #2 automatic berth for California. This is after merged results from all teams in CA combined. The race will take place in Portland, Oregon on Saturday. The team will be competing as a club team and we will be referred to as Eastvale XC Club. So our city name will be put in the national spot light!!! Here is the website with a lot of the race details.
