MILWAUKEE – The Marquette University men’s and women’s cross country teams travel to UW-Parkside for the Vic Godfrey Invite and a first look at the site of the 2017 BIG EAST Cross Country Championships.

The Golden Eagles are coming off an impressive first race of the season at the Flames/Flyers Challenge at Lewis University. The men topped all competition with a head-to-head record of 6-0 against competing teams, while the women finished 6-2. The men placed all seven runners in the top-10 of all runners led by senior Alec Miller.

The West Bend, Wisconsin, native turned in a 6k career-best mark of 18:41.96 to claim runner-up honors and earned BIG EAST Athlete of the Week accolades for the second time in his career.

The women were led by redshirt junior Jessica Parker, who finished in third place overall. MU, with a solid finish overall, placed three female runners in the top-10.
