CHARLESTON, S.C. - The College of Charleston men's and women's cross country teams will compete Friday in Charlotte, N.C. for the NCAA Southeast Regional Championship.

Over 80 teams will compete in the event Saturday at McAlpine Creek Park. The women's 6k which features 41 teams will begin at noon. Forty men's teams will compete in the 10k, set to start at 1:15 p.m. Admission to the competition is free.

"We are looking forward," CofC head coach Amy Seago said. "We know we need to make some improvements and this is a great opportunity for us to do that. We will see the top teams in the region and what it takes to compete at that level."

The Southeast Region is one of nine NCAA Division I regional sites. The other host sites are Madison, Wis. (Great Lakes); University Park, Pa. (Mid-Atlantic); Springfield, Mo. (Midwest); Fort Collins, Colo. (Mountain); Madison, Conn. (Northeast); Tallahassee, Fla. (South); Fayetteville, Ark. (South Central); and Seattle, Wash. (West).

The Southeast Region includes all NCAA Division I universities from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Kentucky. Additionally, the Southeast Regional determines a portion of the NCAA Cross Country Championship field set to take place Saturday, Nov. 17, at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Ky.

The top two teams and top four individuals not on an advancing team receive an automatic berth into the national meet. Additional teams and individuals are chosen through an at-large selection process.
