ELLENSBURG--The nationally ranked Western Washington men's and women's cross country squads open the 2012 season Friday when they travel to Ellensburg to compete in the Central Washington University Invitational at West Ellensburg Park.

The Vikings open the season ranked #10 in the USTFCCCA men's poll, while the women's team opens the season ranked #13 in the national Division II poll.

The race begins at 5 pm with the women's 4k race, followed 45 minutes later by the men's 6k race.

The CWU Invitational is also the season opener for the host Wildcats.
