NORMAN — The Oklahoma cross country teams return to action Saturday, competing in the Cowboy Jamboree at the OSU Cross Country Course in Stillwater, Okla.

Hosted by in-state rival Oklahoma State, the Cowboy Jamboree enters its 81st year, making it the oldest cross country race in the country.

The Sooners are coming off third-place finishes for both the men’s and women’s teams at the Ken Garland Invitational in Denton, Texas. Liam Meirow paced the OU men, claiming 10th individually, while Isabella Rose led OU’s women, crossing the finish line sixth overall.

The Cowboy Jamboree marks the second time this season the Sooners have competed at the OSU Cross Country Course. On Sept. 1, OU raced in the Cowboy Duals and produced first-place finishes from both Meirow and Belle Wallace.
