Michael Mentz, who finished just behind Nemeth in 17th place at the Saluki Invitational, figures to fill the team's second spot, with the squad likely rounded out by Abraham Shaposhnik, Jason Morgan and Gary Nemeth.
The SEMO Invitational will be held on teh SEMO campus in Cape Girardeau. The men's competition will be an 8k race, and is expected to begin at approximately 11 a.m. Saturday morning.
