Cross Country Announces Upcoming Slate

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Lynn University's first-year head women's cross country coach Chris Wood has announced the schedule for the approaching 2016 campaign.

"Being new to the conference and having 11 new runners, I wanted a schedule that was simple and didn't involve a lot of long travel trips," said Wood. "We'll have some good opportunities to compete for top finishes with what has been laid out."

The season starts a few miles down the road when the team will compete in the FAU Cross Country Invitational on Friday, Sept. 2, at South County Park. The squad then heads to Melbourne, Fla. to run in the Sunshine State Conference Pre-Conference Meet on Saturday, Sept. 10, hosted at Florida Tech.

The Blue & White next travel to Lakeland, Fla. for the Moccasin Invitational on Sept. 17, and wrap up the regular season with the Disney Cross Country Invitational at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Kissimmee, Fla.

The postseason begins at the SSC Championships in Melbourne, Fla. on Saturday, Oct. 22, hosted by Florida Tech. If runners qualify they will advance to the NCAA South Regional on Nov. 5, held at Saint Leo. The top three teams and top three individual finishers not on a qualifying team from each region go on to run at NCAA Division II National Championship on Nov. 19, also hosted by Saint Leo.
