Kate Lambdin and the San Jose State women's cross country team will be competing in the UC Riverside Invitational open race on September 18.
The Spartans are coming off of a first place victory in their last competition at the "Battle of the Bay" race on September 4. Lambdin is coming off of her first career individual victory, and will look to continue her 2010 success at the UCR Invite where she finished 114th in 2009.
The 5K open race through the Agricultural Operations Course will begin at 9:00 AM (PST).
"This is an opportunity for a lot of our runners to step up and solidify themselves in the lineup," said head coach Augie Argabright. "We look forward to running hard in a field that may be the toughest we face this year."
