UTC Hosts Cross Country Twilight Meet On Friday

Wednesday, September 11, 2019
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men’s and women’s cross country teams will host the UTC Twilight Meet on Friday at the Camp Jordan Race Course.
 
Ten men’s teams and 12 women’s teams form multiple NCAA divisions will be competing. The women will run a 4-kilometer course with the men competing in a 7K race.

“This is a quality field with perennial powers, national champions from Division II, Division III and NAIA form across the southeast,” Chattanooga head coach Andy Meyer said.
“It will be a good test for our kids as we will be running a few more of our upper classman who did not see action at the UTK meet.”

The course is very flat and fast and temperatures on Friday are expected to be in the mid- to upper-90s at race time.

“It will be hot and a definite test of fitness,” Meyer said. “This will be a very good meet for our kids to continue showing progress in their training.”

Competing in the Division I category will be both men’s and women’s teams from Chattanooga, Tennessee State and Alabama State. Alabama A&M and Georgia State will run women’s teams only. Non-Division I schools making the trip will be Cleveland State, West Georgia, William Carey, Montevallo, Emory and Lee University. Oglethorpe will send a men’s team and Dalton State will send a women’s team.

The meet is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. with the women’s 4K followed by the men’s 7K at 7:00 p.m. Results will be posted online following the race.
