SPC cross country sending top-3 NJCAA squads to Red Raider Open

LEVELLAND – The Texan and Lady Texan cross country teams will compete in their second meet of the season Friday, Sept. 13 when they travel to Lubbock for the Red Raider Open held at Meadowbrook Golf Course.

Expectations are running high on the season for both squads with the release of the latest NJCAA cross country rankings putting the Lady Texans at No. 2 in the nation and the Texans right behind at No. 3.

The Texans are coming off a dominant performance at last weekend's Libby Invitational hosted by McMurry University in which the SPC men posted a team score of 16 points.

The women's 5,000-meter race is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m., with the men toeing the line immediately after in an 8,000-meter competition.
