The men's and women's cross country teams tuned up for the upcoming SAA championships at Berry's Viking Invitational Saturday. The men finished 13th of the 15 teams while the ladies finished 12th of 15 teams.
Continuing to lead the squads are the captains, Michael Caneega for the men and Tirzah Brown, Khadija Nisar and Katy Galli for the women. "Both squads lowered their average time in their races," said head coach Bob Unger. "We have two weeks to prepare to make a good showing at conference. Then two more weeks before competing at the NCAA Regionals."
The inaugural SAA Conference Championships will be held on the Choctaw Trails Course in Clinton, Miss., just outside of Jackson, on Saturday, Oct. 27. The NCAA South/Southeast Regional Championships will be run on the Nash Farm Battlefield Grounds in Hampton, Ga., just south of Atlanta, on November 10.
