The race assignments of the Indiana State Pre-National Invitational have been released and the 12th-ranked Princeton men’s team will get the chance to run head-to-head with the nation’s top team, the Stanford Cardinal. Both the Tigers and the Dartmouth Big Green will join in the Blue Race at 12:10 pm with Stanford and Northern Arizona. The men’s White Race will begin at 12:50 pm with Columbia and Harvard facing off with top-10 foes Colorado and Portland.
The women’s battles will take place first with Columbia, Dartmouth and 15th-rated Princeton facing top-10s in Florida State and Arizona in the Blue Race at 11 am. At 11:35 am Harvard will hit the course for the White Race with national powers Georgetown and Colorado.
Terre Haute, much like Indianapolis, has been hot and dry in recent months and the report is that the Championship course is dry and hard. My trusty iPhone is reporting that Saturday will be sunny with highs in the mid-60s.
