PROVO -- After winning last Saturday's BYU Autumn Classic, the men's cross country team will travel and participate in the Sacramento State Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 16.

BYU's top runner Josh Rohatinsky will not compete in the race, but will take the week off and train for upcoming meets.

"This will give the other guys an opportunity to step up and show what they can do without their top guy there," said head coach Ed Eyestone. "I think we have a strong enough team."

Those who will be traveling with the team include Dan Hinckley, Chandler Goodwin, Dustin Bybee and Kyle Perry, who all finished in the top ten at the BYU Autumn Classic.

Coach Eyestone hopes to see tremendous effort from his runners and is confident that they will be successful.

"I'd like to see us continue to come together," said Eyestone. "Not only win as a team, but win individually as well. I'd like to place as many of our guys in the top ten as possible."
