MSU Travels To Pennsylvania For The Paul Short Run
Hosted by Lehigh University, the Paul Short will feature more than 100 teams on each side and is highlighted by some of the top competition in the country.
"Obviously the level of competition will be a big difference compared to other races," coach Houston Franks said. "This level of competition and the difficulty of this course will help us see where we really are as a team."
Having a week off between races was beneficial for the Bulldogs, who are training for their toughest race yet. After posting victories at their first two meets, the MSU men know what it takes to win and are ready for the road that lies ahead. The men's 8K is slated to begin at 11 a.m. and features seven Top 20 teams.
Also coming off two victories are the Maroon and White women, who will race at 11:45a.m. in a 6K, which has attracted eight Top 20 teams. Not ones to shy away from a challenge, the Lady Bulldogs are looking forward to the 6K change-up since they normally compete in a 5K.
Upon completion of the Paul Short, Mississippi State has two weeks off before heading to Clinton, Miss., for the Choctaw Open on Oct. 15.
