Houston - Conference USA and Rice University are set to play host to the 2011 C-USA Cross Country Championships on Monday, Oct. 31, at Wildcat Golf Club in Houston.
The men's 8K race is scheduled for a 9 a.m. CT start, while the women's 6K race begins at 10 a.m. An awards ceremony will follow the races at 11 a.m. Admission is free. Wildcat Golf Club is located at 12000 Almeda
The defending C-USA men's and women's cross country champion is Tulsa. A year ago, the Golden Hurricane became the third program in league history to sweep the championship titles. Both teams look to defend their crowns but will have strong competition against the remaining field.
Prior to the most recent USTFCCCA women's poll, Tulsa was ranked No. 30 in the country. In the South Central Regional poll SMU and Rice are No. 3 and 4, respectively, while Tulsa is ranked 12th in the Midwest as is East Carolina in the Southeast. UTEP and UAB are both ranked 14th in their respective regions this week.
UTEP has two-time C-USA medalist for the women, Risper Kimaiyo, returning to this year's meet and is looking to become the first three-repeat champion in league history. Pushing her on Halloween Monday will be redshirt senior and 2008 individual medalist Silje Fjortoft of SMU. Both enter the championship race with stellar regular-season meets.
