9.4.10 | Cross Country
Maple Leaf Invitational set for Saturday
BALDWIN CITY, Kan. - With some of the top teams in the area traveling to Baker University this upcoming weekend, head coach Zach Kindler feels as if the Baker cross country teams will have an opporitunity to measure themselves early.
On the women’s side, No. 14 Kansas Wesleyan will enter the invitational as the favorite. The Baker women enter as defending champions.
“I’m pretty excited about this meet,” said head coach Zach Kindler. “I think we’ve got the talent and potential, we’re just taking things one day at a time.”
A relatively unexperienced squad in 2009, the Baker men enter 2010 with everyone returning and the addition of some key freshman. Junior Chris Scheideman was a redshirt last season due to injury. He enters 2010 as the Wildcats No. 1 runner.
The Maple Leaf Invitational is scheduled to go off on Saturday, Sept. 4 at 10:30 a.m. (Women) and 10:55 a.m. (Men). The course is located at the Baldwin City Country Club.
