Milligan to compete in Disney CC Invite
from staff reports
The Milligan College men's and women's cross country teams head to Lake Buena Vista, Fla., for the Disney Cross Country Invitational this weekend.
The race, which takes place at the Disney World of Sports Complex, is one of the top collegiate cross country races in the nation. Top programs from across the country are entered to compete.
The Buffs and Lady Buffs will get their first taste of competition in over three weeks when they toe the line in the sunshine state. During their last meet, the Brevard Invitational, both squads walked away with team victories.
Two-time All-American Megan Lease (Camden, N.C.) led the women's team and junior All-American Chris Wright (Berlin, MD) led Milligan's men to victory with a second-place finish.
The women's team placed four individuals in the top twelve, while the men's team placed four in the top ten.
"We've had an outstanding three weeks of training, so it'll be interesting to see how we perform in an atmosphere of this caliber," said head coach Chris Layne
