FIVE FAST FACTS FROM THE STARTING LINE

1. The Lady Vols and Vols host the 2011 Tennessee Invitational on Sat., Sept. 17, at Lambert Acres Golf Club in Maryville, battling Kentucky in a dual meet competition.

2. The men are scheduled to run an 8000-meter race at 9 a.m. Eastern time, followed by the women's 5000-meter competition at 9:45 a.m.

3. This meet, the first home race for the Big Orange since 2008, is a precursor to UT hosting the SEC Championships on Oct. 31.

5. Chris Bodary (2nd, 15:26.93) and Brittany Sheffey (4th, 14:11.83) were UT's top finishers in the men's 5K and women's 4K, respectively, at the Belmont-VU Opener on Sept. 2. Looking back to when the Big Orange last hosted the Tennessee Invitational, Bodary was 20th in 2008 at 26:03.14, while Sheffey was sixth in 18:56.
