Central Washington heads to Louisville, while Seattle Pacific and Saint Martin's race in Salem...

With the Great Northwest Athletic Conference cross country championships in Bellingham looming in three weeks, three of the four Washington Division II schools are in action Saturday.

Central Washington (above/photo by Paul Merca) takes its longest regular season trip of the season, as the Wildcats head east to Louisville, Kentucky for the highly competitive Louisville Sports Commission Cross Country Classic at Tom Sawyer State Park, the site of this year’s NCAA Division I championship meet.

The Wildcats are among 42 Division II teams entered in this year’s meet, with the men racing over 8k at 10:45 am local time, and the women running 5k 45 minutes later.

Meanwhile, both Seattle Pacific and Saint Martin’s will head down Interstate 5 to Salem for the Charles Bowles Willamette Invitational hosted by Willamette University.

Both the Falcons and the Saints will run in the Cardinal sections, featuring NCAA D1, D2, and D3 schools, with the men kicking it off at 9:30 am over 8k, and the women following at 10:20 am.

Seattle University will also have a full squad competing at the Charles Bowles meet.
