QUALIFICATION FOR NCAA D1 CHAMPIOSNHIPS:
After the completion of the regional competitions, the top two teams from each of the nine regions secure their spots in the championships. This means that a total of 18 teams automatically qualify for the NCAA DI Cross Country Championships.
However, the field is not complete yet. The NCAA DI Cross Country Subcommittee has the responsibility of selecting 13 additional teams to fill out the remaining places in the 31 team field. These teams are referred to as "at-large" selections.
The criterion for choosing these at-large teams primarily relies on their performance at the regional competitions. The teams that finish in third and fourth place at their respective regionals are considered the most likely candidates to be selected as at-large teams.
