GUNNISON, Colo. — Western Colorado cross country sends some of their athletes to compete at the 2021 Gig Leadbetter Maverick Stampede on Saturday morning in Grand Junction Colorado.
The men’s team will race 8-kilimeters starting at 9 a.m. with the women following at 9:45 a.m. for their 5-kilimeter race. The event will be held at the Lincoln Park Golf Course.
The Mountaineers will not race their top athletes on both the men and women’s side, as they will use this meet to determine what athletes to bring to the Arkansas – Chili Pepper Invite on Oct. 2.
The women’s team has most of their scoring ladies sitting out to rest up for Arkansas, as the men’s team will have a few athletes racing for a spot. Some of the men to keep an eye on are Mountaineers Max Sawyer, Simon Kelati, Will Johnson, and Riley Howard.
