THE FLATS –Georgia Tech men’s and women’s cross country teams head to their third meet of the season on Friday, as they travel to University Park, Pa. for the Penn State National Open.
The meet begins with the women’s 6000m at 10:45 a.m., followed by the men’s 5.2-mile race at 11:30 a.m. The Jackets will be one of 17 schools competing, including two (No. 23 Penn and No. 30 Penn State) ranked in the top 30 nationally on the women’s side.
