According to head coach Doug Molnar Saturdays’ course will feature a hilly, undulating terrain.  Tentatively scheduled opponents for the Governors include two teams regionally ranked in the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association polls: Georgia (Division I, third, South Region) and Morehouse (Division II, ninth, South Region). Other notable teams include OVC rival Tennessee Tech, host Georgia State, Kennesaw State, and Troy.

“Sometimes it’s good to go somewhere different and face a new challenge. We will go in with our same strategy.”

Leading the pack for the Governors will be senior Boniface Yator and junior Geofrey Kosgei. Both men recorded top 15 finishes at last week’s race at Sharon Johnston Park (Yator, sixth and Kosgei, 13th) and are looking to improve as their conditioning improves.

“It’s a two-man show up front,” said Molnar. “They are definitely going to be the two guys up front duking it out. Then we need those next three guys to stay close together and really work.”
