The University's men's and women's cross country teams kicked off the season at College Station as they took part in the Texas A&M Cross Country Relay Opener on Friday.

In the women's heat, freshman Kelcee Keenan found herself teamed with sophomore Oumama Hallal. The duo ran for a combined time of 46:24, earning them sixth place.

Senior Sesar Figueroa and junior Calum Neff competed in the men's division, unattached, and recorded a time of 37:58, good for fifth place out of 17 runners.

Junior Paul Goodwin and sophomore Gus Forward ran together and combined a time of 39:39, finishing in 12th place. The final pair of Houston athletes to reach the finish line was senior Maurilio Sanchez and freshman Ben Cohen. The combination finished in 15th place with a combined time of 40:59.

Rice captured both the men's and women's top spots with times of 37:19 and 44:01, respectively.

With the first meet behind them, the men's and women's team will return to College Station on Saturday to compete in the Texas A&M Invitational. After treating the meet as a sort of warm-up, coach Theresa Fuqua will have both teams prepared for their second visit to Aggieland.
