Meanwhile, the Oakland women’s team will be aiming for a repeat as they look to secure a bid to the NCAA National Championships in Stillwater, Okla., on March 15.

“The journey to get here has been very challenging, and I can’t say enough about the hard work this group has put in, and their dedication to the process,” Coach Paul Rice said. “The championship mentality and culture that exists in our program is because of the commitment of these athletes

“I am proud of them, and I can’t wait for them to finally spike up tomorrow and go out and do something they really love to do. They need to all race with confidence. They are ready for this!”

The Horizon League Cross Country Championships will welcome some spectators but the championships will be restricted to family and friends only, the organizers announced in a release.
