CALERA, Ala. – After a week of no competition, the Wolves women’s cross country team heads to Montevallo on Saturday for the 2018 Falcon Classic. This will be the second race of the season for the Cross Country team.
The women will race a 5K at 10:00 a.m. EST which will follow the men’s race. There will be 25 teams of all divisions competing with 215 individuals from those teams racing. The Wolves will see some GSC competition at this meet including AUM, Montevallo, Shorter, West Alabama and West Florida.
Alaina Burnside started off the season with a 22:26.5 5K placing fourth at the Wolves Home Opener two weeks ago. Alexis Smith was within seconds of Burnside, running a 22:29.2 placing fifth. Burnside and Smith look to lead the wolves in the race this weekend.
“The women’s team is really young but making progress. Alaina Burnside and Alexis Smith are set to have strong performances against a competitive field,” said Head Coach, Ryan Bailey.
