MILWAUKEE — The Marquette University men’s and women’s cross country teams will travel to UW-Parkside on Saturday for the Lucien Rosa Invite and a second look at the site of the 2017 BIG EAST Cross Country Championships, which are just three weeks away.

It will be MU’s second time this season at UW-Parkside following a dominating performance at the Vic Godfrey Open in September. Both sides took home team victories at the meet, led by Jessica Parker and Alec Miller.
