Walkup Skydome on the NAU campus in Flagstaff.

Coach Eric Houle is in his tenth season at the helm of SUU's cross country and track and field programs. Houle led the Thunderbird women to sweep of the Mid-Con titles last season, with a co-championship in indoor and an outright win in outdoor, and guided the men to a pair of second-place finishes in the indoor and outdoor seasons.

The T-Birds opened the season last Saturday at the non-scored Idaho State/Snake River Invitational in Pocatello, Idaho, at which one school record was tied, while four other top marks were established.
