ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - The UCF cross country team is headed on another road trip this weekend, this time traveling north to Gainesville for the 25th annual Mountain Dew Invitational.

The 6K race at Florida's Mark Bostick Golf Course will start at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. The Knights will compete against 24 other teams, including programs like Auburn, LSU, Miami, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Last year, UCF earned a top-three team finish for its best team finish at the meet in five years.

The Knights look to keep the momentum going from their successful season debut at the USF Invitational where six runners posted personal records. Sophomore Anne-Marie Blaney, who is the reigning American Athletic Conference XC Athlete of the Week, will lead the pack once again.
