BRIEF: Cross country, track and field schedules released

Season schedules for SIUE’s cross country and track and field teams were announced Friday, and cross country competed in its first meet Jan. 23.


While cross country typically competes in the fall, the team will now have a shortened schedule this spring. The team kicked off the season on Saturday at the Redhawks Invite, hosted by Southeast Missouri State University. The competition resulted in top-10 finishes from sophomore Roland Prenzler and senior Kassidy Dexheimer.


Cross country will compete again Feb. 5 at the Murray State Open. The Ohio Valley Conference Championships will be held March 1 at Eastern Illinois University.


Track and field will begin competition Jan. 29 with the Warrior Invite at Indiana Tech, followed by another indoor meet Feb. 5 at SEMO. Since the indoor championships have been canceled, the team will then transition to outdoor competition, which will begin at the end of March. The season will conclude with the OVC Championships held May 14 at Eastern Illinois.
