OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss cross country season is heating up as the Rebels race in their third meet of the year this Saturday.
The Rebels will be traveling to the Greater Louisville Classic in Louisville, Ky. The meet is hosted by the University of Louisville and will take place at E.P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park, home of this year's NCAA Division I National Championships.
"We're taking the approach of this is just another regular season meet and it provides us with another opportunity to compete against a great field," first-year head coach Brian O'Neal said. "We're excited to see where we are versus some of the NCAA elite."
The men's 8K race is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. The women will follow with a 5K race beginning at 10:15 a.m.
The Rebel women's team is coming off an impressive second-place finish at the Commodore Classic led by senior Katie Breathitt.
Breathitt has put up impressive results so far this season. The Lexington, Ky., native claimed first place at the Commodore Classic, after which she was named SEC Women's Runner of the Week.
The women are ranked No. 4 in the South Region this week ranking by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. The Rebels will also look to fellow seniors Anne Threlkeld and Kelsey Breathitt, Katie's twin sister, for leadership.
The Ole Miss men are looking to improve after a seventh-place finish at the Commodore Classic. The men will be led by senior Riley Young, who placed 19th overall at Vanderbilt.
The Rebels will also look for leadership from junior Max Holman and freshman Seumas O'Reilly. Both have finished strong in the first two meets of the season.
