HARTSVILLE, S.C. – The Coker University women's and men's cross country teams will travel to Wingate, N.C., where they will compete in the Bulldog Stampede on Saturday.
The women will start at 8:30 a.m. and compete in the 6K while the men will start at 9:30 a.m. and compete in the 8K.
The Bulldog Stampede will feature seven teams from the South Atlantic Conference including Coker, Wingate, Catawba, Newberry, UVa-Wise, Lincoln Memorial and Lenoir-Rhyne. With their first meet being cancelled due to Hurricane Dorian, this will be the first event of the 2019 season for both teams. With other teams in the conference having a couple meets under their belts, it will be a good test for the Cobras, coach Peter Early said.
"Obviously it's a challenge opening up later than we are used to, but we are excited to get to run on the course we will be competing at conference," said Early. " It will be great experience for us down the road."
