ORU Takes to Course Again for Richard Clark Invitational
TULSA, Okla.-After a week off, the Oral Roberts men's and women's cross country teams will travel up to Springfield, Mo., for the Richard Clark Invitational on September 15. The meet will not only serve as a measuring stick against the other nine participating schools, but will also give the Golden Eagles a look at the course that will host the NCAA Midwest Regional at the end of the year.
The Golden Eagles will face off against Central Missouri, Drury, Maryville, McKendree, Missouri S&T, Missouri State, St. Mary, UMKC and Wichita State at the meet that will be held at the MSU Cross Country Course, with the women's 5K race beginning at 8:30 a.m. The men's 8K race will follow immediately at 9:15 a.m.
In the first meet of the season, it was sophomore Samantha Watson who led the women's team to a runner-up finish at Kansas, while freshmen David Batchelder and Jonathan Harper led the men's team to a third-place finish.
