GREENVILLE, N.C. - For the 12th-straight year, the East Carolina men's and women's cross country teams will host the Pirate Invitational. The meet is scheduled for Friday Sept. 23 at Lake Kristi in Grimesland and will be the Pirates' only home event of the 2011 campaign.

The women run a 5K, beginning at 5:30 p.m., while the men take part in an 8K, starting at 6:00 p.m. A year ago, both Pirate teams took home the event and individual titles as Cory Hampshire and Brittany Copeland won the men's and women's races.
