SEATTLE - The Huskies are bringing some fresh faces to the familiar grounds of Terre Haute, Indiana and the NCAA Cross Country Championships this Saturday, Nov. 22. While the NCAA meet has been held in Terre Haute for 10 of the past 11 years, only three of the 16 Huskies making the trip have ever raced at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course. But of those three, two have been the leaders of the Husky pack all year in Aaron Nelson and Maddie Meyers. The Huskies will look to follow the lead of those two, and see what damage they can do against the nation’s best.
