The Rice women's cross country team faces its toughest competition of the season when runs Friday at the 56th Notre Dame Invitational in Notre Dame, Indiana.
The women's Blue Division 5K event gets underway at 3:15 (CT) on the Notre Dame Cross Country Course. Six of the 28 teams in the field are ranked including No. 2 New Mexico, No. 7 Florida State, No. 18 Arkansas, No. 22 Princeton, No. 28 Penn State, and No. 29 BYU.
Competing for Rice Friday afternoon are Allison Pye, Becky Wade, Halsey Fowler, Aaren Pastor, Heather Olson, Farrah Madanay, Lindsay Miller, Allie Schaich, Sasha Schoch.
