Cross Country Set for Illinois State Invite

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – After five PR's last week, the Cougars return to action for the Illinois State Invite in Normal, Illinois, on Friday.

"The team worked well together last week," Assistant Coach Kayla Brown said. "We started out on the right foot for the season."

On the men's side Tyler Owens will look to have another impressive race after finishing 10th last week at the Walt Crawford Open. Owens, Austin Woodard, Landon Skelly and Matthew O'Connor all ran PR's last week.

Haley Miller led the women last week finishing 10th overall. Allie Sweatt and Aly Goff had impressive performances, with Goff running a personal best.

"Haley Miller and Tyler Owens led the women and men, respectively. We continue to look to them for leadership," Brown added. "Our main goal is to close gaps between each other one week to the next."

The women's 5k will start at 5pm, with the men's 8k starting at 5:45pm on Friday.
