Emory Cross Country Teams Head To JSU Foothills Invitational

Emory Cross Country Teams Head To JSU Foothills Invitational


The Emory men’s and women’s cross country teams continue their seasons on Saturday (Sept. 30) when they compete in the 12th Annual JSU Foothills Invitational.  The meet will be held at the Oxford Lake and Recreation Center in Oxford, Alabama, with the men’s 8K competition starting at 8:30 am (CDT) followed by the women’s 5K at 9:15 am.   

The entry field for the Foothills Invitational includes 32 women's teams and another 28 men's team to create the largest collegiate cross country meet held in the state of Alabama this year. Both men and women races will be scored in two divisions, red for Division I competitors, and white for Division II, III, NAIA and junior college.  

The Emory men enter this weekend as the No. 2-ranked D-III program in the South/Southeast Region and 23rd nationally, while the women hold down the No. 23 slot in the national rankings as well as the No. 1 position in the region.

Both sides last competed on Sept. 16 at the University of North Georgia Invitational.  The men captured first place out of nine teams while the women posted a third-place finish out of 15 squads.
