Roadrunners women to host annual Ricardo Romo Classic on Friday evening
SAN ANTONIO — The women's cross country team will return to the course on Friday evening when it hosts the annual UTSA Ricardo Romo Classic presented by H-E-B. The 5,000-meter race is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at the National Shooting Complex off Culebra Road (2 Gass Road; San Antonio, TX 78253).
The Roadrunners will welcome nine schools — Concordia Texas, Schreiner, Southwestern, Texas, Texas-Pan American, Texas A&M International, Texas A&M-Kingsville, Texas Lutheran and Trinity — to the meet and a total of 100 student-athletes will make up the field.

UTSA is the two-time defending meet champion and Alyssa Diaz was victorious a year ago.
The Roadrunners, who did not compete last weekend, are coming off their third consecutive victory at the Texas Lutheran Invitational on Sept. 7.
Nina Herrera raced to the individual title for the first victory of her four-year career. Meanwhile, Samantha Fish crossed the tape second in 19:08.36 and Emily Perez (19:24.08/fourth), Sarah Wedgeworth (19:33.26/sixth) and Isabel Balbontin (19:38.48/eighth) rounded out the team's scorers.
