Lady Demons Travel Solo to Lake Charles

LAKE CHARLES – Northwestern women’s cross-country travels to McNeese to race the Cowboy Toyota Stampede today.

The Lady Demon’s 5-kilometer race will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Enos Derbonne Sports Complex.

This will be the third race of the season for the Lady Demons. The girls had a strong race full of improvement last weekend and look to do it again at McNeese.

“We have continued to trend in a positive direction, so we are just trying to keep the ball rolling.” Head Coach Dawson said. “We had another great week as both guys and girls put together another set of great workouts.

With the University of Arkansas Chile Pepper Festival coming up on October 1st, the men’s team will stay behind in Natchitoches to focus on their training.

“Next Friday will be a big test for them so we would like their focus on that.”, Dawson said. “Select women will also be competing at that meet but it will not field a full scoring team.
