CSC looking forward to good cross country season's

CHADRON – The Chadron State College men's and women's cross country teams are no strangers to putting in the miles. That will certainly hold true for their 2013 schedule, which was released Monday.

The Eagles, who wrapped up their first season competing in NCAA Division II last fall, will have seven competitions in six states during the 2013 season.

"We are excited about our schedule and I feel it will give our student-athletes a great opportunity for diverse competition," men's and women's cross country head coach Ryan Baily said.

Chadron State will open its 2013 slate Sept. 6 at the South Dakota School of Mines Invitational in Rapid City, S.D.

CSC will host its invitational on Sept. 14 and will compete a week later at the University of Nebraska Woody Greeno Invitational Sept. 21 in Lincoln.

The Eagles will then close out their regular season with three trips to three different states, beginning with the Chile Pepper Festival in Fayetteville, Ark., on Oct. 5.

The Chile Pepper has become one of the largest and most prestigious cross country meets in the nation. Chadron State's president, Dr. Randy Rhine, was among the founders when he worked at the University of Arkansas in the 1980s.

Chadron State will then compete at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference championships Oct. 26 in Silver City, N.M., and the NCAA Division II South Central Region Championship Nov. 9 in Canyon, Texas.

The men's and women's cross country season concludes Nov. 23 at the NCAA Division II National Championships in Spokane, Wash.
