Maranatha to Host Wisconsin Private College Championships

WATERTOWN, Wis. -- For the first time in school history, Maranatha is slated to host the Wisconsin Private College Championships. The cross country event will be held Saturday at Brandt-Quirk Park with a women's 6K at 12:30 p.m followed by a 1:30 p.m. men's 8K.

The Sabercats men's squad has finished in 7th place for the past 3 years while the previous best for the women's team was an 8th-place showing in 2008.
