The Aggies will go head-to-head against Northwestern Oklahoma State University and are looking forward to a competitive meet. Both men and women will be running 5k races with the women set to start at 9 a.m. and the men at 9:45 a.m.

Gideon Busienei, 2011 Heartland Conference Champion, finished fourth in the conference last year and is looking to compete in the championships again for his final season with OPSU. Look for freshman Steve Labude to compete early for the Aggies as well as sophomore Ty Stephens who has worked hard all summer to knock down his times. Senior Mike Wiebe brings experience to the team which will benefit them on the course. Iago Goncalves a first-year transfer from Brazil will also be competing in this week's meet along with Jake Milburn and Austin Atkins.

For the women, senior Christina "Teenie" Kent is expected to be one of the top returners for the Aggies along with senior Korie Ham who has been training hard during the off-season. Another senior to watch will be Whitley Coca who finished her basketball career with the Aggies this past spring and will continue her athletic contributions on the course this year; Coca is set to be one of the top runners for the Aggie women. Other Aggies competing this week will be sophomore transfer Debra Kime who has been putting up good times in practice; and two freshmen, Delta Higdon who continues to improve each week and Shelby Perry who is working her way back in shape after sustaining an injury.

Head Cross Country coach Jason Miner is looking forward to the home meet and feels that the Aggies have a chance to really compete; "They keep working hard to improve their times each week."

The meet will take place on the grounds of Guymon High School in the area between the softball field and high school.
