Flight Score: a unique variation of traditional cross country; a rarely used, but distinctive format very appealing to coaches, runners, and fans.  Single numbered runner from each team competes head-to-head with the same numbered runners from the other teams, i.e., all of the number seven runners from each team start at the same time in one "flight," then all the number six runners depart in a second flight a few minutes later, then the number fives, fours, threes, twos, and ones

Scoring:per finish in each flight, first in one's flight equals one point, etc. Exciting aspect is race-by-race scoring updates during the action - shows ebb and flow, and what is needed to win!
