    CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The Saluki men's and women's cross country squads began the 2013 season on Friday with the Saluki Early Bird, which consisted of one co-ed 4K race.

    Senior T.J. Heffernan won with a time of 12:43.93, a little over a second better than second-place finisher, the unattached Matt Hazel (12:44.00). The remaining SIU men that competed all finished within the top-five -- Cole Allison (third, 13:01.25) and Kulayifi Haji (fifth, 13:38.44).

    The SIU women fielded 13 runners and were led by senior Alyssa Allison in 14th place (15:16.47).

    The Saluki men's and women's cross country teams will be at full strength next Friday, Sep. 6, at the EIU Walt Crawford Open in Charleston, Ill.
