PRINCETON, N.J. (10/17/13) - As the NCAA Championship returns to the LaVern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course in Terre Haute, Ind., the Princeton cross country team will familiarize themselves with the course as it competes at Pre-Nationals this weekend.
This will be the first time Princeton has raced on the Terre Haute course since the NCAA Championship in 2011, where it finished 19th.
The men's 8k blue race is at 11 a.m., and will be streamed on FloTrack's subscription site.
A total of 50 teams will be competing in the blue race including 12 ranked teams. They include: No. 1 Oklahoma State, No. 2 Colorado, No. 4 Oregon, No. 9 Tulsa, No. 10 Princeton, No. 12 Indiana, No. 18 Iona, No. 19 Boise State, No. 23 Villanova, No. 24 Georgetown and No. 29 Stanford.
This will be just the second competitive race of the season for the Tigers. They competed at the Notre DAme Invitational on Oct. 4, finishing third out of 27 teams. Seniors Tyler Udland and Chris Bendtsen finished ninth and 11th, respectively in that race. Fellow senior Alejandro Arroyo Yamin is expected to score for the Tigers this weekend as well. The trio of seniors were consistantly the top three at races in 2012. Juniors Matt McDonald and Sam Pons each finished in the top 30 in South Bend to earn points for the Tigers.
