Wyoming Cross-Country Team to Host Meet For First Time in Seven Years

Wyoming's cross-country teams will host the Wyoming Invite on Aug. 31, the first home meet for the teams since the 2011 Wyoming Cross-Country Invite. This year's race will be held at the Little America Golf Course in Cheyenne. 

Two weeks later, the Cowgirls will compete in the Woody Greeno/Jay Dirksen Invitational in Lincoln, Neb., on Sept. 15, their only meet in September. The Cowboys travel to South Bend, Ind., for the Joe Piane Notre Dame Invitational on Sept. 28.

The women are back in action on Oct. 6 in the Roadrunner Invite in Denver, Colo.

 The UW women will compete at the Bronco Invite in Sunnyvale, Calif., on Oct. 13, while the men will run at Pre-Nationals in Madison, Wis., the same day.

Postseason action begins in late October for both teams at the 2018 Mountain West Championships. San Diego State will act as hosts for the meet scheduled for Friday, Oct. 26. Last year at the New Mexico North Golf Course, the Cowboys placed sixth out of eight teams, while the Cowgirls finished eighth among 10 squads.

Following the MW Championships, the Wyoming harriers will compete at the NCAA Mountain Regional hosted by BYU on Nov. 9, in Provo, Utah. Last season in Logan, Utah, Wyoming’s men’s team placed ninth out of 18 teams, while the UW women finished 15th out of 19 teams in the stacked Mountain Region.

The 2018 NCAA Cross Country National Championships are hosted by Wisconsin on November 17
