After performing well in their final meet of the season, both men and women’s cross country teams head to Spartanburg, South Carolina to compete in the 2016 ASUN Championships.

In their final meet of the season, the men’s team finished runner-up while the women finished sixth at the USF Invitational held at The Claw Golf Course in Tampa.

Since this meet on Oct. 14, both teams headed back to Fort Myers to prepare for the championship. The meet is to be held at USC Upstate’s Milliken Research Park Saturday, Oct. 29 at 9 a.m.

On the men’s side, the team finished similar to the women’s team with a third place finish, totaling 88 points last year. The Eagles were led by UNF who totaled 45 points while Lipscomb took the first place spot with 22 points.
