Roadrunners off to Bayou State for Western Athletic Conference Championships
SAN ANTONIO — The UTSA women's cross country squad will begin the postseason on Saturday morning when it competes at the Western Athletics Conference (WAC) Championships in Ruston, La. The 5,000-meter race is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at Lincoln Parish Park.
The Roadrunners were picked to finish fourth in Monday's WAC Pre-Championship Coaches Poll that was released by the league office. Two-time defending champion Idaho topped the poll and the Vandals were followed by New Mexico State, Utah State, UTSA, UT Arlington, Seattle, San Jose State, Texas State and Louisiana Tech.
The Roadrunners, who did not compete last weekend, are coming off a top-10 showing two weeks ago at the prestigious Chile Pepper Festival. Junior Alyssa Diaz raced to a 21st-place finish after covering the Agri Park 6,000-meter trail in 21:51.9 in the field of 341 runners. She paced the Roadrunners for the fourth consecutive meet.
