That's correct. I'm so excited about football opening with a win at Arkansas that I put down the wrong date.

Ugh. Same time as volleyball vs. LSU at Tudor.

RE: 2021 Cross Country
Just a reminder of today's races on the intramural fields north of the Shepherd School.

Women (approximately 4K) -6:15 p.m.

Men (approximately 4 miles) - 6:45 p.m.

I realize that this is at the same time as volleyball, but it is the ONLY time Rice will race at home all season.

As I stated before, both teams are strong, and this looks like Jon Warren's best men's team in over a decade.

This is a low key meet, but important to have a race before the big one at Texas A&M on September 25.

Teams competing:

Concordia (M/W)
Houston (M/W)
Houston Baptist (M/W)
Lamar (M/W)
Louisiana (M/W)
Prairie View (M/W)
Rice (M/W)
Sam Houston (M/W)
St. Thomas (M/W)
Stephen F. Austin (M/W)
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (M/W)
Texas Southern (M/W)

And was in 1st gear almost the entire way. She's just so much better than anyone, it really isn't fair. Texas A&M in 2 weeks will be the first real test.

Did the women rest anyone tonight or is A&M CC just an equal to slightly better team (realizing that only two points separated us)?

Yes, we did not operate at full strength. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has a solid squad, but I think that by the time the regionals roll around in late October, you'll see Rice ahead of the Islanders.
