The Emory University men's and women's cross country teams continue their seasons on Saturday (Sept. 9) when they compete in the 5th Annual Furman University Cross Country Classic. The meet will be held at the Furman University Golf Course, which has hosted two NCAA Division I Championships, with the men's 8k race starting at 8:30 a.m., followed by the women's 6k competition at 9:15 a.m.
Close to 80 programs will be represented at the competition including Division I Auburn, Clemson, College of Charleston, Georgia and host Furman.
This Saturday's meet will represent the first action for the Emory men and women since Sept. 1 when they both claimed first-place finishes at the Georgia DIII Invitational hosted by Berry College. Entering this weekend's action, the Eagle men are ranked 21st nationally in the Division III ranks while the women hold down the No. 22 slot.
