The UConn men’s cross country team will continue its 2013 campaign Saturday morning at 11:30 in the Ted Owen Invitational at Stanley Quarter Park in New Britain, Conn.
After placing first in the inaugural meet of the season in UMass, the Huskies will look to continue their strong running to Central Connecticut State University for the team’s second competitive meet of the season.
In addition to CCSU, UConn will be competing against Bryant University, the University of Hartford, the University of Rhode Island, Boston University and Pace University.
Many Huskies will look to build on their strong performances from a week ago, including freshman Michael O’Donnell who paced the team in his first collegiate race in the opening meet.
In addition to O’Donnell, UConn will need David Cotton, Edward Wilson, and Stephen Vento, who were the next three in line last week, to continue running strong if they want to come out on top once again on Saturday afternoon.
The team will be facing some familiar competition in New Britain this week, as this is the third year in a row UConn has traveled to CCSU for this event.
Head coach Greg Roy looks for strong performances by each member of the squad heading into a three-week layoff from formal competition. After this weekend, the team will not return to action until Oct. 12 in the New England Championship meet.
