Northwest Christian Private Schools - Olympia/Lacey
November 15, 2016
Due to incorrect data in our national rankings algorithm Northwest Christian High School in Lacey, Washington is hereby awarded national championship status in cross country. Other teams are impacted by this change in the algorithm as well.
Coach Larry Weber
2014 & 2015 National Coach of the Year
Some of the Washington state teams were either not included entirely in the rankings or unfairly suppressed in the rankings. It was brought to our attention this week while compiling data for the 2016 Championship that 2014 NW Christian Lacey had in fact defeated the awarded National Championship team. After a review of the rankings we found this mistake in the algorithm and previous methodology which has now been corrected. We have discontinued the algorithm and are deeply apologetic to Washington teams, programs, coaches, athletes who each year performed at exceptional levels. The 2014 NW Christian Lacey girls were left out entirely. We would like to correct the record; the Northwest Christian High School boys and girls are National Champions and one of the best small school programs in US history.
I take deep personal pride in our rankings and the history of the sport which we have chronicled for the past 50 years, awarding small school championships the past 10 years. Correcting a wrong is the right call, and I didn’t think twice about this one. Larry Weber, and his teams have been thus awarded the 2014 Boys & Girls, and 2015 Boys National Championships. The 2013 girls were also US#2. Larry Weber is awarded the 2014 and 2015 National Coach of the Year Award.

Schilter, Northwest Christian boys cross country under national microscope
- The Navigators have a chance to overtake Trinity Prep for top national spot if they do well at the state meet Saturday
- Four Navigators have run at least as fast as 16:42 over the 5,000 meters that will comprise the state course
- As a team, the Navigators are favored by a computer projection to win the meet with no runner finishing farther back than 31st, based on best marks during the current season

Ohio State football. Kentucky men’s basketball. Connecticut women’s basketball.
Those are the power programs that spring to mind when you hear the term “national champion.” A private high school with a mere 125 students wouldn’t typically enter the conversation.
That’s exactly what could happen, though, if the Northwest Christian High School boys cross country team is successful this Saturday at the Class 1B/2B state meet at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco. Continue Reading>>
