Thursday, September 05, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga cross country team begins the 2013 season Friday night with the annual PowerAde Invitational at the Moccasin Bend Race Course.

The Mocs will host Austin Peay, Middle Tennessee, Auburn University at Montgomery, Bryan College, Dalton State, Lee University and Shorter University in the first of two home meets this season.

“We’ll have Lucas Cotter back at full steam this year,” UTC head coach Bill Gautier said. “John Gilpin will also be making his return.

Rebecca Greenwall will be making her debut with the Running Mocs this year and Teghan Henderson, who had an outstanding freshman season, returns to the lineup.”

Amanda Cotter (Bristol, Conn.), an all-conference selection last year, returns to the lineup to lead the women’s team. There will be a large group of freshmen looking to get into the starting lineup along with four strong returning runners.

Junior Paul Stuart (Brentwood, Tenn.) and 2012 Southern Conference Freshman of the Year Trevor Janssen (Jordan Station, Ontario) will run attached at the PowerAde. Senior Mark Cole (McKenzie, Tenn.) who missed last season, was just recently cleared to begin running.

The women will run a two-mile course beginning at 5 p.m. followed by the men’s 5K run. The event is free and open to the public.
