The Pre-National meet, which serves as a pre-cursor for the NCAA Championships will be held at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park, the same course that will host the championship in November. Houston will run in the men’s red race (8K) at 10 a.m. and each of the men’s (8K) and women’s (6K) black races at 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m., respectively.
The Houston men have picked up individual wins in each of their two competitions this season. Senior Brian Barraza claimed the title in the men’s 8,000-meter race at the Texas A&M Invitational, while junior G.J. Reyna opened the campaign with a victory at the Rice Invitational.
