Aggie Cross Country only Team at Home this Weekend

—By Laura Nelson on 10/03/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—The only Oklahoma Panhandle State University sports action at home this weekend features the Aggie Cross Country team hosting its first-ever home meet in Guymon, and the student athletes encourage the public to either compete in the race or come cheer on the Aggie runners!

On Saturday, Oct. 6, contestants will meet in the Guymon High School parking lot near the entrance to the gym to take on a 5k course. While it is an official collegiate competition, there are also spots available for anyone else who would like to run. Head coach Victor Esparza will accept entries through 8 p.m., Wed., Oct. 3 and he may be contacted in his office at 580.349.1343, on his cell phone at 505.603.2963, or via email at coachvic@opsu.edu. The women's race begins at 9 a.m. and the men's will be at approximately 9:45 a.m. No entry fee will be collected, but donations to the program will be accepted.

The rest of the Aggie athletics teams compete on the road this weekend. The OPSU football team, now 2-2 on the season, travels to Rose Stadium in Tyler, Texas to take on Texas College (1-4) on Saturday, a team they beat last year in their homecoming match. The Steers are coming off a win against Wayland Baptist last week and the Aggies plan to turn things around following their loss to McMurry University last week.

The rodeo team heads to Durant Oct. 4-6 for the second rodeo of the fall season hosted by Southeastern Oklahoma State while volleyball plays the next four on the road beginning Oct. 4 against Dallas Baptist University, Oct. 5 against Huston-Tillotson in Austin, Oct. 6 against St. Edward's in Austin, and on Oct. 9, they meet up with Northwestern Oklahoma State in Alva.

On Oct. 7-9, the men's golf team plays in the Ryan Palmer Invitational hosted by West Texas A&M at the Tascosa Country Club in Amarillo while the women play the same dates in the Warrior Invitational hosted by Sterling College in Hutchinson, Kan. at the Carey Park Golf Course.

If you aren't competing in the 5k on Saturday, plan to encourage the runners as they start the race at Guymon High School and support the OPSU cross country runners!
