NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Saluki cross country will make the trek to the University of Notre Dame for the Notre Dame Invitational on Friday to begin the heart of its pre-conference championship schedule.
SIU will be among some of the best competition in the country as 1,210 student-athletes and a total of 17 Division I ranked teams will be in attendance. The women's 5K race will feature No. 20 Butler and the men's 8K race will highlight eight top-25 teams -- including two top-ten squads (No. 7 Tulsa, No. 9 Princeton).
The meet will also be a useful barometer for the Missouri Valley Conference championships coming up in less than a month, as MVC foes Indiana State and Loyola will run against both the Saluki men and women on Friday.
The Saluki women will run in the Women's Gold Division 5K race at 2 p.m., and the men will compete in the Men's Blue Division 8K race at 5 p.m. Flotrack.com will offer results and video coverage of the meet.
