All things considered, every once in a while it’s a good idea to throw a big party. That way, you have an excuse to clean the place up: dust off the furniture, vacuum and mop all the floors, slap a new coat of paint where it’s needed, and mow and weed the front lawn. That’s probably what the University of Florida had in mind when they did a complete makeover of their Mt. Dew/UF Invitational.
BATON ROUGE – The LSU men’s and women’s cross country teams begin their 2013 season Saturday when they compete in Florida’s Mountain Dew Invitational at the Mark Bostic Golf Course in Gainesville, Fla.

This week’s “big meet” will be on The Mark Bostick Golf Course on the University of Florida campus which is known to be challenging given the softer grass and multiple hills which are spread throughout. 72 teams are entered on the girl’s side and 69 on the boys teams will gather on a predicted steamy 90+% humidity and 75+ degree morning. Conditions have been dry this week, so the course surface may be more firm for better footing and performances across the board. Flrunners will be on-site with results, race video, video interviews, thousands of photos, and a complete recap of all the action.
