Cross Country to Run in Charlotte Invitational
Thundering Herd Readies for Third Meet of 2012
Sept. 27, 2012
CHARLOTTE, N.C.- The Marshall University cross country team will run in the Charlotte Invitational at McAlpine Park this Friday as it seeks to improve in its third meet of the 2012 season.
Hosted by UNC Charlotte, the event will begin with the women’s 6k race at 3:30 p.m. The men’s 8k race will follow shortly thereafter at 4:15, before an awards ceremony caps things off at 6.
The Marshall men are coming off their best performance of the season after finishing 9th out of 24 teams at the Commodore Classic two weekends ago. Senior David Caldwell has paced the team thus far, finishing fourth and 30th in the opening two meets.
On the women’s side, sophomore Celia Leonard has been leading the pack, and with junior Leslie Thomas returning to the fold after an early-season injury, the team looks poised to improve upon the last and 15th place finishes it has posted thus far.
