Meet Your XC Champions: Ashley Overgaauw & Emmet Anderson

What Is This?

Over the last few weeks, MileSplit Minnesota rolled out brackets and polls to determine who was the top boys and girls cross country runner this fall. Fans voted for which runner they thought had the best cross country season. 

The Setup

We've selected 16 boys and girls based on their times, performances, and accolades during this cross country season and placed them in a bracket of head-to-head matchups where your poll votes on the next page will determine who advances.


Athletes included are runners only from the 2020 fall cross country season. There were no limits for who could be included. 

How This Works

Athletes are seeded 1 through 16 based on times and ranking. After each round, the athlete with the most votes in their matchup will advance to the next round. Voting will begin at 10 a.m. CT for each round of voting, voting will end at 6 p.m. CT for each round. Be sure to spread the word to advance your favorites into the next round!


Round 1: December 10 - 14

Round 2: December 15 - 19

Round 3: December 20 - 23

Final Round: December 27 - 31
