Region six is loaded.

And on Tuesday morning in Hendersonville, the Franklin High School boys team and the Brentwood High School girls squad won region championships against some of Middle Tennessee's strongest teams.

Both squads have been nationally ranked by our friends at Milesplit USA all season, and on Tuesday, they took home the first trophy of the postseason with region team titles in one of the most loaded areas of Tennessee as far as cross country goes.

The boys team standings came down to just five points.
