    Peru State will play in a home triangular on Wednesday against Central Christian College and Grace University. Match times for the Bobcats are 3 and 7 p.m.

    Peru State senior cross country runner Sarah Williams has been named as the heart of America Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Runner of the week for the second straight week.
    "Sarah has trained hard during the off-season and is striving to get better throughout the fall," said Peru State Coach Johann Murray. "We know there is a very good runner at Baker so it will be interesting to see what happens when the two of them meet up in the HAAC conference meet."
