NASHVILLE - The Lipscomb cross country squad and director Nick Polk have released the schedule for the 2019 season.

Lipscomb will stay in Nashville for their second meet of the season, the Commodore Classic, hosted by Vanderbilt on Spet. 14.

The Purple and Gold will again split up for the last weekend of the regular season as part of the Bisons will head to the UAB Blazer Invite in Birmingham, Alabama on Oct. 18 and the rest will take on the Pre-National Invitational in Terre Haute, Indiana on Oct. 19.
