Major changes for 2016 NCS XC Divisions approved

You can check out the divisions for the fall season at the link below which was approved a few days ago. As it stands now, there will be 8 potential teams in Division I, 19 teams in Division 2, 29 teams in Division III, 29 teams in Division IV and 66 teams in Division V. Keep in mind that not all schools field cross country teams and the number of teams in Division V has been fairly high for as far back as I can remember. 

The major change is that the break point for each division now resembles more closely with the Southern Section and San Diego Sections. The result of the change leaves Division I with only 8 teams and makes the other four divisions much more competitive at the section level. Whether NCS teams will field stronger teams in those divisions will be determined in the next few seasons. 

If you have any thoughts on the new divisions, feel free to comment in the section below.
