The women, ranked fifth in the South Region in the USTFCCCA poll, are coming off their highest SEC finish in program history, fourth at the 2012 SEC Championships, and look to continue that momentum.
"We're excited to get started this weekend." second-year head coach Brian O'Neal said. "The Memphis Twilight Meet will be an exciting venue for our team to compete. It's run at night and under the lights, which is different from any other cross country meet we'll run this year."
"This first meet will be a little different for us on the women's side. We will run basically an all-freshman women's team just to see them their first time in the Ole Miss uniform and see where we stand."
The men, ranked eighth in the South Region, return Ian Carter and Max Holman. The men finished 10th at the SEC meet last year and will have a host of new runners expected to contribute immediately.
Ole Miss will head to Memphis on Saturday for its first meet of the season at the Brooks Memphis Twilight Classic where the Rebels will have a unique experience of running under the lights.
Ole Miss has already made a name for itself at the Brooks Memphis Twilight Classic with former Rebel Barnabas Kirui holding the meet record of 19:00.77 in the 4-mile.
This meet is hosted by Christian Brothers University at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex.
Other regionally ranked teams that will be competing are Mississippi State (Men: 5th South, Women: 9thSouth), Univ. of Central Arkansas (Men: 10th South Central), and Univ. of Memphis (Men: 11th South)
The women's 5K race will start at approximately 8:40 p.m., followed by the men's 4-mile race.
