Women's Cross Country to Open Season at Home

HANOVER, Ind. – The Hanover women's cross country teams will kick off the 2019 season with the Hanover Invitational after the Franklin Grizzly Invite was cancelled a week ago. 

Sophomore Arig Tong (Columbus, Ind.) will look to pace the way for the Blue and Red after being named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year for her runner-up performance in the 2018 HCAC Championships.

As a team, the Panthers captured a fourth-place finish and will look to remain among the league's best in 2019. The Blue and Red were projected a top five finish as part of the HCAC Preseason Poll.

Joining Tong this season are HCAC runners to watch Ariel Barlow (Francesville, Ind.), Brianna Medcalf (Central, Ind.), and Caitlyn Naghdi (Carmel, Ind.).

The season opening race will be held in Hanover, Ind. at the Panthers Cross Country
