PITTSBURGH-The University of Pittsburgh cross country team will compete in the Carnegie Mellon Invitational, held at Schenley Oval on Saturday, Oct. 8. This marks the second time this season that the Panthers will run this course.
The women's 5K begins at 10:00 a.m., followed by the men's 8K at 11 a.m.
Pitt is one of 14 schools participating on both the men's and women's side, while Chatham, Clarion and Pitt-Johnstown are bringing only a women's team.
"I expect us to do a very good job this weekend," Pitt head coach Alonzo Webb said. "We can compete very well with these schools."
The Panthers are coming off a second-place finish for both the men's and women's teams in the Cappy Anderson Invitational in Princess Anne, Md. Sophomore Ben Kisley and freshman Morgan Perry each recorded top five finishes in the race.
