Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook's men's and women's cross country teams will head to New Jersey for tomorrow's Princeton Invitational. Among the 24 schools scheduled to run, the Seawolves will face an America East rival in UMBC and nationally-ranked Iona.

Stony Brook last competed two weeks ago at the Paul Short Run. The men's team, led by sophomore Eric Speakman (Napier, New Zealand), placed third in the 8K Brown race. Speakman finished second, two seconds out of first place.

Junior Olivia Burne (Palmerston North, New Zealand), who finished 32nd, led the women's squad to an 11th place finish in the women's Gold 6K.
