Kaitlyn Soltis also set her personal-best in the FSU Invitational with a time of 18:27.0 to continue her strong junior campaign.

The Knights enter Friday's race with a 6K race already under their belts. On Sept. 27, the Black and Gold not only hosted the UCF Invite; the Knights also took home the top honors on their home course.
Friday's race also serves as the War on I-4 meet between the Knights and South Florida. UCF currently holds a 9-0 lead in the overall rivalry series after victories in volleyball and men's soccer. Between cross country, women's soccer and volleyball, 15 more points are up for grabs this weekend.
