San Antonio – Trinity men's and women's cross country competed with partial squads at the University of Incarnate Word Invitational on Saturday morning.

Four Tiger women's runners placed in the top 20 individually, led by first-year Mabel Fowler's 12th-place finish in just her second collegiate 6k race.
Junior Meghan Mardashti finished 14th with a time of 25:18.1, which is nearly a minute faster than her time at last weekend's Abilene Christian University Invitational.
