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. The Owls won the Rice Invitational as well as last week's Islander Splash hosted by Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Wade won the individual title at the Rice Invitational, while Madanay was at the Islander Splash.
The Notre Dame Invitational began in 1956, with the Irish men claiming the first two team titles and individual crowns. The women's race was added in 1987, with Virginia winning the first title.
Jim Bevan's unranked Owls won the 2007 team title when it defeated 21 teams, including eight schools ranked in the top 30 with 118 points. Current Rice seniors Pye and Wade finished 16th (17:22) and 35th (17:40) respectively for the Owls. Marissa Daniels led Rice with a seventh place time of 16:59, while Lennie Waite was 23rd (17:31), and Callie Wells finished 37th (17:43).
