ASU Set To Kick Off 2010 Campaign

AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Augusta State men's and women's cross country squads open their respective seasons Friday afternoon when the Jaguars compete in a dual meet with Georgia College & State in Milledgeville, Ga.

The Jaguar men's squad, picked to finish fifth in the Peach Belt Conference, is in its first season under head coach Adam Ward after the reinstatement of the men's cross country program last summer. The Jags will be competing for the first time since 2002.

The Lady Jaguar program, tabbed second in the PBC preseason poll, is beginning its seventh season under Ward. The Lady Jags return all but two letterwinners from last season's squad that posted five top-five finishes, including a victory in their season opener. ASU finished fifth at both the PBC Championships and NCAA Southeast Regional.

The men's and women's cross country teams return to action on Saturday, Sept. 25 at the USCA Pacer Invitational in Aiken, S.C., and head to the Greater Louisville Classic a week later in Louisville, Ky.

ASU hosts the annual Jaguar Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 9 at Blanchard Woods Park in Evans, Ga.
