The university women’s 5k race will begin at 9:15 a.m. with the men’s 8k race starting at 9:45. More the 75 collegiate teams will compete on Saturday at the OSU Cross Country Course.
ORU took a week off after competing each of the first three weeks of the season. In addition to the upper classmen on both rosters who have experienced the large event, the women’s team will also benefit from the addition of freshman Abby Hoover, who is familiar with the Cowboy Jamboree having competed as a high school athlete.
