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."
