The men's and women's cross country teams travel to San Diego this weekend for the 60th annual Aztec Invitational, hosted by San Diego State University at Balboa Park.

The women open up competition Saturday and will run a 5-kilometer race beginning at 8:45 a.m., while the men's 8-kilometer event gets underway at 10 a.m.

The Wildcats will face several of the nation's top teams in the weekend event. The women will face preseason No. 15 Northern Arizona and No. 20 Duke, Cal State Northridge, Loyola Marymont, Pepperdine, San Diego State and Southern Utah. Southern California and the University of San Diego will all be competing along with several other junior colleges and club teams.

The men's squad will face some of the same competition, but the focus will be No. 6 NAU.

The Arizona men finished 23rd at the 2003 NCAA Championships and hope to improve on that mark this year.

The Wildcats are coming off their only home meet of the year after hosting the Dave Murray Invitational last weekend.

Men's sophomore Robert Cheseret won the individual title for the second consecutive season, with teammate Mohamed Trafeh finishing 11th.

On the women's side, Amber Steen finished 12th in the team's opening meet, with six other Wildcats finishing in the top 23 spots.
