Both men's races this weekend will be 8,000 meters while each women's installment will be 5,000 meters.

LAST TIME OUT: Both teams return to action this weekend for the first time since the William & Mary Invitational on September 15.

The women placed fourth out of eight teams with juniors Halley Brown (6th), Madison Yerke (8th) and Suzanne Dannheim (13th) all finishing in the top-15.
