A total of 12 Baylor women's cross country runners will be in action at the Aggieland Open at 5 p.m. on Friday in College Station, Texas.

For the recently added meet, Baylor's top runners will be off, but a dozen other members on the roster will get a chance to run the 5,000-meter race hosted by Texas A&M at the Dale Watts course.

The runners scheduled to be in action for the Lady Bears are Emily Curran, Amanda Dillon, Haley Everroad, Micaela Freeman, Sydney Gandy, Kasey Kinzel, Isabella Lackner, Katy Parsons, Jessica Purtell, Leila Rohde, Megan Rule and Lindsay Walton.

The Baylor women are currently ranked No. 21 in the USTFCCCA national coaches' poll and are ranked No. 3 in the South Central region. At their last meet out, the women placed fifth at the Notre Dame Invitational, but BU’s top nine runners from that meet will not run on Friday.

Other schools competing at the event include Louisiana Tech, Prairie View A&M, Sam Houston, Stephen F. Austin, Texas A&M and Texas Southern. 

The Baylor women’s top runners will be back in action at  Nuttycombe Wisconsin Invitational on Oct. 14, in Madison, Wis.
