WASHINGTON - George Washington's men's and women's cross country teams will return to action at this weekend's Navy Invitational at the United States Naval Academy Golf Course in Annapolis, Maryland.

The men's team will compete in the 8,000-meter Navy Invitational at 10:00 a.m. in a field that includes the host Midshipmen, American, Bowie State, Georgetown, Loyola (Md.), Maryland and McDaniel.

The men's squad went 2-2 at last weekend's Mount St. Mary's Duals, led by senior Ryan Tucker's fifth-place performance. He recorded a career-best cross country 5K time of 16:05.7 to lead the Colonials.
