Cross Country teams set to host their annual Tiger Twilight Invitational

SEWANEE, Tenn. (Oct. 3, 2012) – The Sewanee men’s and women’s cross country teams will host their annual Tiger Twilight Invitational, Friday, on The University of the South campus.

Along with the Tigers, teams participating in the event include Southern Athletic Association (SAA) members Berry College, Birmingham-Southern, and Oglethorpe.

The women’s race will kick things off at 4 p.m., while the men’s event starts at 4:45 p.m.

After racing on the Sewanee golf course since 1990, this year’s Invitational will start from the football practice field due to the on-going golf course renovation project.

Both the women’s 5k and men’s 7.2k races will begin at the practice field and then loop around Lake Cheston. Eventually, all participants will end up back around the practice field area for the finish.

Overall, Sewanee has had some outstanding times and finishes at its first three events this season. Currently, the women’s team is ranked 10th regionally by the USTFCCA.
