Where: Greenville, S.C. (Furman University Golf Course)

Distance: Women’s 6K, Men’s 8K

Start Time: Women – 8:30 a.m.; Men – 9:15 a.m.

Quotable: “This weekend’s meet at Furman is another opportunity for us to continue to learn about our team. We’ve been having great training sessions, and this meet is being approached and viewed as one. We will be racing this weekend in groups with the postseason in mind. These first couple of meets are important from the perspective of breaking up practicing on campus every day. This weekend, we will have a very specific race plan. We will get to see how well we can execute and then see how we react when put into another competitive situation.” – Cross country coach Michael Porter
