WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The Baylor women’s cross country team will be back in action at the Texas A&M Invitational Saturday at the Dale Watts Cross Country Course in College Station, Texas.

The women's 6,000-meter race will start at 9 a.m. Besides Baylor, the field also includes Central Arkansas, Houston, Houston Baptist, Kentucky, Lamar, Lipscomb, LSU, McNeese State, Midwestern State, Prairie View A&M, Rice, Sam Houston, Tarleton State, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Texas Southern, Texas Wesleyan and UTSA.
 
In the women's South Central regional rankings, Baylor is currently fourth, while Rice is third and Texas A&M sixth, Houston eighth, Lamar 10th and Central Arkansas 11th. Kentucky ranks seventh in the Southeast region while Lipscomb is seventh in the South region.

For the BU women, 20 student-athletes will be in action, including Alison Andrews-Paul, Emily Curran, Alex Davis, Amanda Dillon, Haley Everroad, Kathryn Foreman, Micaela Freeman, Sydney Gandy, Kasey Kinzel, Isabella Lackner, Hana Marsheck, Maggie Montoya, Katy Parsons, Jessica Purtell, Leila Rohde, Megan Rule, Gabby Satterlee, Peyton Thomas, Lindsay Walton and Anna West.
