The Harrier Rankings
National and regional team rankings of the 2003 cross country season
List #6 - Final 2003
by Marc Bloom, editor, The Harrier

The final season lists by The Harrier make the Saratoga NY girls and The Woodlands TX boys the #1 cross country teams in the US for 2003. The boys top 10 was unchanged from List #5, and there were only minor shifts in the girls top 10 due to late state meets and Foot Locker results.
