2016 Cross Country Schedule

RICHMOND, Ind. - The Earlham College cross country team has released its schedule for the upcoming 2016 season.

"We know there will be some transition and a lot of learning new things this fall – for all of us" said Rob Hewitt, Co-Head Cross Country and Track & Field Coach. "We put together a schedule that provides the athletes the opportunity to develop throughout the season."

 Both teams will open the fall season with a three-kilometer (women) and five-kilometer (men) quadrangular at IU-East on Friday, September 3. 

The Quakers will travel to Bloomington, Ind., for an in-state six-kilometer/eight-kilometer showdown at the Indiana Intercollegiates meet on Friday, September 16 before returning to Richmond to host the Earlham Invitational (four-kilometer/six-kilometer) on Oct. 1.

 The squads will head to the Wilmington Invitational on October 14 for the final regular season contest (six-kilometer/eight-kilometer).  Two weeks later Hanover College will act as host for the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) Championships on October 29.  The Maroon and White will round out the year at the NCAA Regional meet on November 12 in Holland, Mich.

"We are excited to get down to business and we think the schedule we have will give us the opportunity to work on all aspects of cross-country racing and prepare the teams well for our championship season in October and November," said Claire Hewitt, Co-Head Cross Country and Track & Field Coach.
