Cross country

Stanford teams will race at full strength for the first time this season when they take on some of the nation's best, at Wisconsin and Pre-Nationals this weekend.

At the Nuttycombe Wisconsin Invitational in Madison on Friday, the No. 11 Cardinal men will feature Sean McGorty and Grant Fisher, who race for the first time since the Olympic Track and Field Trials in July, while providing a glimpse of the team that is expected to contend for a national championship next month.

At Saturday's Pre-Nationals on the NCAA championship course in Terre Haute, Indiana, freshmen Christina Aragon and Ella Donaghu will make their collegiate debut for No. 7 Stanford. They join All-Americas Elise Cranny and Vanessa Fraser on what should be an intriguing team to watch.
