Russellville, Ark. - Friday night, Arkansas Tech hosted their Twilight Invitational in Russellville, Ark. The race format was slightly different than a regular cross-country meet. The women ran a shorter, 2 mile version starting at 6:30 p.m. and the men ran a 4 mile course at 7:00 p.m.

Memphis Men's Cross Country Team placed 3rd at Arkansas Tech Twilight Meet behind a 7th place 20:48 by Edwin Kipkorir and a 12th place 21:28 by Jacob Chapman.

On the women's side, Emily Malinowski was the top finisher, placing 20th for the Lady Tigers running a 12:58 in the two-mile run. Distance coach Toby Reep was pleased with the effort from both the men's and women's cross country team.

"We have only had four days together as a team," said Reep. "The result was pretty good. We still have lots of work to do and much to improve on, but I was satisfied with the full effort we gave. We just have to go to back to work this week and prepare for the next meet.

Both teams have two weeks to train before their next race, the Brooks Memphis Twilight Classic on September 13th.
