Thoughts on some boys teams on the SW Watchlist:
Albuquerque Academy, NM. The 14th place Southwest finisher Albuquerque Academy returns 6 of their top 7. They are led by state 3200 champion Jordan Lesnansee and are a solid mix of seniors and underclassmen. Running in the 2nd largest class in their New Mexico, we are picking them to be the fastest team in the state.
Lone Peak, UT. Last years 8th place finishers in the SW look to move up from that place returning 6 of 7. 3 of those 7 were 9th graders last year.
Desert Vista, AZ. The defending large class Arizona state champions return 3 of their top 4 and 4 of their top 7. After a great spring with several sub 10 3200 runners, they are proof of the depth of this region.
Rio Rancho, NM. The two time defending New Mexico large class state champion is the team to beat again this year in their class. They did not have a great showing at the Nike SW regional last year, but with 6 of the top 7 returning, this could be the year they take the next step.
Ogden, UT. It is tough to catch a break this year in Utah. Ogden returns 5 of their top 7 runners including a very solid top two in Alek Parsons and Garrett Barton, yet we predict it will be difficult for them to match their 6th place SW regional finish from last year.
Mountain View, Mesa, AZ. The 2nd place Arizona State XC finishers have the best shot in the state to knock off Desert Vista. The Toros return 5 of their top 6 runners.
McQueen, NV. The returning large class champion is the team to beat once again in Nevada. However, with the loss of their top two runners, it will be difficult to improve on their 9th place finish in the Southwest Region from last year. .

Isn't Oregon in the NW region for NXN?
Paul-Schmitz
Yes, they are. The NW rankings will be out later today.
Paul-Schmitz
We will get that added to that list.

Comments on some of the teams on the Boys NY Watchlist:
Shenendehowa, NY. Lost 4 of their top 6 but return 2 of their top 3. Another team we are taking a wait and see approach with and expecting they could move up this list as the season progresses.
Saratoga Springs, NY. Led by 3200 champion Aidan Tooker, Saratoga can move up the New York rankings if the back end of their lineup improves.
Guilderland, NY. Returns 6 of their top seven runners but their drop off after #1 makes them a long short to reach the next level.

Comments on the Northeast boys Watchlist teams:
Colt’s Neck East, NJ. No likely single digit scorer on their squad but they are a solid team 1-7.
Cherry Hills East, NJ. Solid group at the top. If they add some depth the could be very competitive not only in New jersey and in the Northeast, but at the national level.
Old Bridge, NJ. Virtual tie on the pre-season spreadsheet with Colt’s Neck East and Cherry Hills East.
Cambridge Rindge Latin, MA. The Falcons return 3 of the top 10 XC runners in the state of Massachusetts. They will need to close their 1-5 spread to be considered for a national ranking.
St. John’s, MA. Return 4 of 5 on a team that finished 6th in Massachusetts in 2014.

Fargo Davies should be somewhere in the mix as well. I have heard from an anonymous source that even though they lost three of their top seven, they have been able to reload very quickly, and should be a threat to Bismarck's ND dynasty.

Some thoughts on boys teams on the Heartland Watchlist:
Bismarck, ND. The defending champions in ND are led by state champion Sam Clausnitzer in the 5K (15.32), 1,600 (4.18) and the 3,200 (9.20). They return 4 of their top 5 scorers.
Dowling Catholic, IA. Led by Ryan Schweizer, Iowa’s top returning distance runner with state championships in the 1600 (4.17) and the 3200 (9.17) this spring.
Stillwater, MN. As much potential as anyone on the watchlist. If the Ponies get to full strength this year, they will be our fastest riser.
Washburn SH, Minneapolis, MN. A great top of the line-up, but Washburn will need to improve on the back end to be able to compete in one of the toughest sections in the country, Minnesota 6AA.
Sioux Falls Roosevelt, SD. NXN qualifier last year is the team to beat in South Dakota but they will need to find one more quality scorer in order to compete in the Heartland.
Linn-Marr, IA. The defending Iowa 4A champs have some rebuilding to do but could be back in the rankings soon.
Grinnell, IA. Our longshot pick in from the Heartland. Young, up-and-coming team in 3A Iowa. They could be a year away from competing with the big schools of the Heartland.
Manhattan High School, KS. Strong returning core with a top runner in Jackson Schroeder but they need more pieces to be competitive outside of their state.

Some thoughts on boys teams on the Midwest Watchlist:
Hinsdale Central, IL. The two time defending 3A Illinois champion has lost 3 of their top 5 runners and will need to re-load to return to the top spot.
St. Ignatius, OH. There might be no other state in the union who lost more of their top runners on their top teams than the state of Ohio. This opens the door for state 6th place finisher from 2014 St. Ignatius to take their shot. With all of their top 7 returning and a tight 2-5 pack behind front running Luke Wagner, the Wildcats are the team to beat in Ohio.
Lake Zurich, IL. Our darkhorse pick in the region could be a year away from being at the top of the rankings. 6 of their returning 7 top runners are underclassmen..
Paul_Schmitz
Rockford, MI. The returning defending large class champions in Michigan return 4 of their top 5 runners and are the team to beat once again. However, if they choose to compete in the Nike Midwest Region, they will need to close their spread between 1-3 and 4-5 in order to compete.
Mason, OH. The defending large school champions in Ohio lose their top 3 to graduation but they have a solid core behind them. They could move up but they will need some newcomers to surprise.

A couple of additional comments on boys teams on the watch list:
South Oldham, KY - top 3 can compete with anyone in the region but need to improve the back of their lineup to move up.
Daniel Boone, TN - NXN qualifier from last year is rebuilding but they have the foundation to make another run.
frogsonfire
Just to clarify, the Lake Braddock boys team missed out qualifying for NXN by one point. They didn't lose by one point. They were one point behind the 2nd place team (Daniel Boone, TN) and 18 points behind the 1st place team (Severna Park, MD).

frogs - good distinction. I was aware of that but it didn't come across that way in my post. Thanks.

A couple of additional comments on teams on the watchlist:
Frisco Wakeland, TX. Could be a surprise if the underclassmen at the back of their lineup improve.
St. Paul’s School, LA. A young squad with a good group of core underclassmen. They are hoping to knock off defending state champion Jesuit in Louisiana.
