Nuggets, Rush will run twice at home during 2014 season

July 1, 2014

     NEW ORLEANS — Two city meets, including the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Championships, are highlights of the 2014 Xavier University of Louisiana men's and women's cross country schedules.
     Tenth-year head coach Joseph Moses announced the schedules Tuesday. Both the Gold Rush and Gold Nuggets are eight-time defending champions of the GCAC.
     Xavier will play host to the GCAC Championships on Oct. 18 at City Park, with team and individual champions qualifying automatically for the NAIA National Championships at Lawrence, Kan., on Nov. 22. It will be the first time since 2003 that New Orleans is the site of the GCAC meet.
     The other City Park meet will be the Xavier Big Easy Opener on Aug. 29. It will be the first time since 2007 that the Rush and Nuggets compete in their home city.
     For the first time ever, Moses-coached XU teams will compete five times in Louisiana. Xavier will run at the Louisiana Army National Guard/ROTC Wolf Pack Invitational in Metairie on Sept. 6, the LSU Invitational in Baton Rouge on Sept. 20 and the McNeese Cowboy Stampede in Lake Charles on Sept. 27.
     The only out-of-state meet before nationals will be the Southern Miss Invitational at Moselle, Miss., on Sept. 13.
     Xavier returns both 2013 GCAC individual champions, Catherine Fakler and Kwame Jackson.
