LA Tech Cross Country Runs at Mississippi College Friday Evening

Oct. 8, 2015

RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech Cross Country returns to action with a Friday evening meet when the men and women run at the Watson Ford Invitational.

Competing at the meet in addition to Louisiana Tech and host Mississippi College are teams from Alcorn State, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Grambling, Jackson State, Louisiana College, Loyola-New Orleans, Miles, Millsaps, New Orleans, Nicholls State, North Alabama, Southern, UT-Tyler, Texas Wesleyan, Union (Tenn.), West Alabama, West Florida, Wiley and Xavier (Louisiana) in addition to others.

Friday’s meet marks the first action on the trails for Louisiana Tech since hosting the Mook Triple-Duals in Ruston on Sept. 19. But while the program has had plenty of rest, it will be needed as the Watson Ford Invitational kicks off a stretch of three meets in October culminating with the Conference USA Championships in Bowling Green, Kentucky on Oct. 31.
