CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina men's cross country team will embark on its 2011 campaign at the Gamecock Open on Friday, September 2, at 6:30 p.m.

The Chanticleers placed second in the 5-kilometer event last season after winning the meet in 2008 and 2009. Nine teams, including the Chants, are entered into the event this season. In all, seven of the teams competing in the event hail from the Palmetto state including Big South Conference rival Charleston Southern.

The Chanticleers will enter six student-athletes in the Gamecock Open. Junior Spencer Lange and sophomore Cameron Wells will be the only experienced entrants for the Chanticleer as freshmen Tyler Cummings, Joseph Keitt, Zach Hensel and Evan Niciphor will make their collegiate debuts.
