The Lady Flames will compete in the Radford Invitational this week in Radford, Va.

The Liberty Lady Flames will conclude fall competition with an appearance in this week's Radford Highlander Invitational in Radford, Va. The meet, which will follow the same format as the 2011 CCSA Conference Championship, will take place Thursday-Saturday at the Dedmon Center Natatorium.

All events will be run on a preliminary/final basis, with preliminaries taking place at 11 a.m. each day, followed by the finals at 6 p.m. The top 16 qualifiers from the preliminary events will be eligible for the finals.

Other teams in attendance will be Campbell, Georgia Southern, Millersville, Mount St. Mary's, North Carolina A&T, Youngstown State and host Radford. All teams are part of the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association, with the exception of Millersville, Mount St. Mary's and Youngstown State.

Liberty has enjoyed success in its first-ever season of NCAA Division I competition in women's swimming, as the 200 yard freestyle relay team of Lindsey Romkes, Brye Ravettine, Dani Fletcher and Sarah McCorkle is the fourth-fastest in the CCSA with a time of 1:39.92, while Ravettine has won five individual events over the last three meets.
