CHICAGO -- The DePaul men's and women's cross country teams will participate in their second meet of the year on Friday afternoon in South Bend, Ind., at the National Catholic Championships hosted by the University of Notre Dame.

Race time is slated for 3:30 p.m. ET.

The Blue Demons finished eighth out of 34 teams on the men's side in last year's event. Eddie McDaniel logged a 14th place finish out of 277 runners in South Bend to pace the Blue Demons in 2012. On the women's side, Jackie Kasal took 33rd out of 266 runners a season ago.
