Friedman said some schools were having trouble getting girls to turn out for cross country at all, and schools with smaller numbers were afraid of forcing their girls to run an extra 1, meters every race.
The longer distance means more time spent racing, more training and, simply, more work. But following the move to the longer distance, Friedman said the participation numbers barely wavered. Participation numbers aren't the only reason for skepticism. Coaches have also voiced concern over the amount of time it takes girls to finish a race. The average girls' runners complete a four-kilometer race in approximately the same amount of time the average boys finish a five-kilometer course.

I don't think they ever actually take the time to ask their kids. Once we get a feel for what the total population [of the coaches] wants, we'll take it to our fall meetings to administrators.
That's the kind of philosophy we have. Until we get some real vibes from our coaches that, 'Hey, we want to change this,' we're not going to do anything. In other states, it's not that simple. Nebraska, for example, enforces a rule that would prevent large-school classifications from changing their rules without the smaller classifications following suit. Millard is much further along in his rehab and will be an intriguing pro prospect because of his versatility.
