A first look at NXR-SW boys Alan Versaw Jul 28, 2014

Most (though not all) of the boys at the front of last year's pack have graduated, but the teams at the front of the pack will ring familiar. Colorado Track XC file photo by Alan Versaw.

The New Crop: Freshman Boys Alan Versaw Oct 9, 2013

This week, we take a look at New Mexico's crop of freshman boys for the 2014 season. As was the case with the girls, there's a chance we're missing a few here due to unknown years of graduation, but we're hoping we at least have the vast majority of them listed here:

Desert Vista Girls and Corona Boys Win at the Desert Twilight Invitational Margot Kelly Oct 6, 2013

Six years ago the Desert Twilight Invitational started with 5 races and 886 runners.  With the Twilight Movie theme and a love for running at night the meet became an instant hit and the word spread quickly.  The sixth annual Desert Twilight Invitational had over 4,000 runners crossing the finish line with teams from Coast to Coast attending.  The cool night air and the fast course of Toka Sticks gave way to some outstanding times and competition.

Twilight Invitational - Ready - Set - Glow! Margot Kelly Oct 4, 2013

The festive atmosphere of the Desert Twilight Invitational has become a meet favorite of most runners in Arizona.  Not only do they get to dance after their races but they also get to sleep in on Saturday morning instead of getting up early to beat the heat for a long run.

NXN-SW, The Week in Review Alan Versaw Sep 14, 2011

Although it's way too early to make hard predictions about who will get bids to the NXN-SW championship races, it's not at all too soon to look and see what's happening in the various states that may have implications for who might make it to the big dance.
