Meet Scoring per NCAA Cross Country Memo
Effective Aug. 1, 2018, Division I intercollegiate competition for cross country can be used to satisfy sport sponsorship requirements as long as one other Division I institution is represented in the event. This replaces the previous two-thirds requirement and eliminates the need for institutions to break out scoring by division.
