The Albany State University men and women’s cross country teams will host their first meet of the season this weekend. The annual ASU Cross Country Invitational will be held Saturday, Sept. 10. The women’s 5K run is slated to start at 10 a.m., with the men’s 8K run starting at 10:40 a.m. at Legacy Park at Sherwood Christian High School in Albany, Ga.
In addition to the Ram teams, several teams from the region, including Florida A&M University and Morehouse College, will participate.
ASU head cross country coach Ken Taylor says he is expecting good performances from his teams, especially the women, who are the defending SIAC champions.
“This is our second meet of the season, and we are expecting to see a good performance from our teams,” Taylor said.
The ASU teams will participate in Darton College’s Cavalier Classic on Sept. 17 and the Morehouse College Invite on Sept. 24. The ASU women will defend their championship title in November.
