IU Looks to Take the State at Indiana Intercollegiate
Sept. 17, 2009
The IU cross country program will put the 2009 season in full swing at the Indiana Intercollegiate meet on Friday, Sept. 18 in Terre Haute, Ind., at the site of the 2009 NCAA Championships. The meet, hosted by Indiana State University, will consist of 24 women's teams and 23 men's teams, all from the state of Indiana. The Indiana men won the meet in 2008 and will look to repeat. The action is slated for a 3:30 p.m. ET start.
Among the field will be the Butler men, who are currently ranked second in the USTFCCCA regional rankings. On the women's side, Indiana enters the meet as the highest ranked team, but they will look to knock off the rival Purdue Boilermakers, who took the title in 2008.
