Cross Country Set for Florida State Open

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – After a strong outing to open the 2021 campaign last weekend, the University of Miami cross country team will look to repeat its success on Friday at the Florida State Cross Country Open.

The Hurricanes showed out at the FAU Invitational on Sept. 1, its first race of the year, earning four of the six top-three finishing spots between the men’s and women’s races.

On men’s side, Auston Cannon clocked in at 15:42 to claim second and Colin Wilson finished just outside the top-three in fourth with a time of 15:47. For the women, it was clean podium sweep with Elle Mezzio (18:18.72), Daphnee Lavassas (18:21.70), and Natalie Varela (18:35.42).

Heading into the week, the Canes who were previously unranked, moved up to number 14 in the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Poll.

Friday’s action will begin with the men’s 8K at 7:40 am (ET) followed by the women’s 6K at 8:10 am.
