LA Tech Set to Host Mook Triple-Duals Saturday

Sept. 16, 2016

RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech Cross Country returns to action on both the men and women’s side this weekend when the teams hosts its annual Mook Triple-Duals at 8 a.m. Saturday at Tech Farm.

The Mook Triple-Duals include a men’s 4-mile race starting at 8 a.m., with the women scheduled for a 3-mile race immediately following its conclusion.

Saturday’s field features six difference schools from Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas. In-state schools scheduled to compete in both the men and women’s races include LA Tech, Northwestern State, ULM and Grambling. Jackson State and Arkansas-Pine Bluff also make up part of the field.

For Louisiana Tech, the men are coming off an impressive first place finish at last weekend’s Allstate Sugar Bowl Cross Country Festival in New Orleans, where seven runners finished in the top 25 individually, including three in the top 10.

The women placed fourth in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Cross Coutry Festival, while sophomore Kacie Kaufman led the way with a seventh place finish on Saturday morning with an individual time of 18:00.2.
