LAKE CHARLES, La. – The LSU cross country team begins the 2015 season Friday competing in the McNeese 6K Cross Country Relay starting at 6 p.m. CT at Enos Derbonne Complex in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Khadevis Robinson enters his third year as head coach of the LSU cross country teams as the Tigers and Lady Tigers look for another prominent start to the 2015 season. Robinson helped bring home a first-place victory for the women and top-two finish for the men at last year’s McNeese 6K Relays.

Junior Joseph St. Cyr and sophomores DC Lipani and Bryan Stamey headline the Tigers as the only three returners.

On the women’s team, senior Morgan Schuetz is poised for another successful season for the Lady Tigers. Schuetz and former Lady Tiger Andria Aguilar took home first place at last season’s McNeese 6K Relays.

Schuetz is joined by juniors Danielle Avery, Jenna Walker and Ashley Welborn, who are also excited to start the season and improve their personal bests.

LSU adds two freshmen to the men’s roster with Dajour Braxton and Jackson Fountain traveling with the team. The Lady Tigers add six freshman who look to make their first debut including Hannah Bourque, Tahlaya Hardin, Erika Lewis, Madison McDaniel Hollie Parker and Mallory Robichaux.

After competing in the McNeese Cross Country Relays, the LSU cross country team will travel to Metairie, Louisiana to compete in the All-State Sugar Bowl on Saturday, September 12. The women will begin at 7:50 a.m. and the men will follow at 8:25 a.m.
