The USC women's cross country team will compete at the Pac-10 Cross Country Championships on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 10:30 a.m., hosted by the University of Arizona at the Dell Urich Golf Course in Tucson, Ariz.
Six members of this year's team are making the trip to Arizona, led by senior captain Kate Neeper, senior Laura Strachan, juniors Kristen Berglas and Christina Eads, sophomore Sara Fusco and freshman Megan Kelly. Neeper (shin) and Kelly (hip) will be running in their first race since Sept. 10.
Four of the Trojans' six runners have competed in the Pac-10s before, led by Neeper who ran her freshman and sophomore seasons, finishing in the top 40 in her second season. Neeper missed all of her junior year of running cross country due to injuries.
The University of Arizona is hosting the 6K Pac-10 Championship race for the first time ever. Four of the 10 Pac-10 teams competing are ranked, led by No. 2 Stanford which has won nine consecutive conference championships, No. 5 Arizona State, No. 22 Oregon and No. 26 Washington.
