LINCOLN — The Nebraska cross country team will face some challenging competition on Saturday at the Roy Griak Invitational in St. Paul, Minn.
More than 30 of the country’s top teams will be competing, starting with the men’s race at 12:20 p.m. The women will follow.
“I think each meet has led to the next one, I think this is the biggest meet on our schedule,” NU coach David Harris said, “Obviously this isn’t the most important one, that is the Big Ten Championships, but as far as a major meet with schools around the countries competing this should be a good test for us. I think the newness and the excitement has definitely caught the attention of the team.”
Harris said the Husker men took a step forward at last week’s Woody Greeno meet. The loss of Sara Plambeck to injury has hurt the women.
