SAN ANTONIO — The men'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 and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. The 5,000-meter race is scheduled to go off at 7 p.m. at the National Shooting Complex off Culebra Road (2 Gass Road; San Antonio, TX 78253).

The Roadrunners will welcome eight schools — Concordia Texas, Howard Payne, Our Lady of the Lake, Schreiner, Southwestern, Texas-Pan American, Texas-Permain Basin and Texas A&M International — to the meet and a total of 68 student-athletes will make up the field.

Admission is free and directions to the course can be found in the related links box toward the top right of this release.

UTSA is coming off a victory at last Saturday's TLU Invitational in Seguin.

The Roadrunners claimed six of the top seven spots on the individual leaderboard to successfully defend their team title at the event.

Leading the way was sophomore Mike Medrano, who won the first individual crown of his career in 16:22.30. Redshirt freshman Ryan Elizalde (16:22.48) and true frosh David Guillen (16:23.82) finished right behind their teammate in second and third, respectively, while senior Daniel Balbontin (fifth/16:33.26) and junior Kyle Hawley (sixth/16:42.88) rounded out the squad's scorers.
