XC Set for SLC Championship
TULSA, Okla. – After nearly a month off, the Oral Roberts University cross country teams will return to the course as they travel to Lake Charles, La., for the 2013 Southland Conference Cross Country Championships on Friday, November 1.
Ward 3 Rec Complex will serve as the host for the conference championships, with the women’s 6k race beginning at 8:30 a.m., while the men’s 8k race will begin at 9:30 a.m.
McNeese State took home the 2012 men’s title, with Stephen F. Austin earning the 2012 women’s championship. ORU finished seventh in the men’s race and eighth in the women’s race a year ago, but with multiple personal bests set this season will hope to improve those standings.
Individually, Samantha Watson earned all-conference honors with a ninth place finish at the 2012 championships.
