Tech to Host Cross Country Meet

RUSTON - Louisiana Tech's men and women's cross country teams will be in action Saturday morning at the Tech Golf Course as they host the "Mook Four-Miler" starting at 8:30 a.m.

Tech Head Coach Gary Stanley said that the four-team event, featuring Tech, Northwestern State, UL-Monroe and Centenary, is named in honor of former Bulldog Muriuki Ngatia who passed away in 1996.

Ngatia, who was a native of Kenya and who still holds the school record in the 3,000 and 5,000-meters, lettered from 1984 through 1987 and was a two-time NCAA qualifier and conference champion for the Bulldogs track squad.

The men are scheduled to run at 8:30 a.m. while the women will begin at 9:15 a.m.
