Due to the forecast for heavy snowfall in the New River Valley, this weekend's Hokie Invitational has been cancelled.
The Liberty men's and women's indoor track & field teams had been scheduled to compete in the two-day meet, Friday and Saturday at Rector Field House in Blacksburg, Va.
The Flames and Lady Flames will be back in action on Jan. 29-30, when they host the second annual Darius Dixon Memorial Invitational at the Tolsma Indoor Track Center. The meet, which will serve as the Liberty men's team's 2015-16 season opener, is named for former Liberty men's track & field student-athlete Darius Dixon.
Dixon, a promising freshman sprinter from Western Branch High School in Chesapeake, Va., opened his Liberty track & field career by competing in the 200 and 400-meter dash events at the 2013 Liberty Kickoff on Dec. 5, 2013. Two days later, he was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 18.
