The announcement went out this morning at 9:15 AM that this year's Virginia Tech High School Invitational will be canceled. The call was made after new weather forecasts this morning called for more snow (6-10 inches) in the Blacksburg area as well as the likelihood meet officials would be unable to travel to and from the meet in the forecasted weather conditions. There are no plans for the meet to made up, but the meet will be held again in 2011. Additionally, the meet will now be offering refunds to all entered teams in the meet.
Knightdale and Ben L. Smith are ranked #2 & #3 in the nation now after their 3:22.52 and 3:22.55 performances.

North Carolina high schoolers were given a special opportunity today at the Eddie Smith Field House on the UNC campus. Normally, there is only 1 indoor meet actually held inside the state's borders, however, UNC graciously opened their doors to a second meet today. The fields weren't nearly as large as next week's Durham Striders HS Invitational, but that didn't limit the top performances. Here's a breakdown of the top performances based on the top US rankings.(as of 1/9/10 @ 6:00 pm)
SE Raleigh's Dannielle Davis has run 8.24 indoors in the 55m hurdles. Her time is ranked among the top 10 in the United States.
The state's largest indoor meet has huge numbers once again.
