MANHATTAN, Kan.-  The Kansas State men’s and women’s cross country teams will travel to Stillwater, Okla., this Saturday, Sept. 30, for the 70th Annual Oklahoma State Cowboy Jamboree. The meet will be held at the Oklahoma State Cross Country Course, with the women’s race beginning at 9:10 a.m., and the men following at 9:40 a.m.


Kansas State is coming off of a 20th-place women’s finish and 30th-place men’s placing at the Roy Griak Invitational Sept. 23. Sophomore Liliani Mendez highlighted last weekend’s performances with a ninth-place individual finish out of a field of 288.
