The Governors will face off against numerous student athletes and also familiar foes from the Ohio Valley Conference, such as SIU Edwardsville, Murray State, and Southeast Missouri in addition to regional foe and host Southern Illinois.

The returning Governors will be led by senior duo Emmaculate Kiplagat and Caroline Kiplagat, who ran the second and third fastest times in school history at last fall’s NCAA Regional in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
