XU's weekend tennis, track canceled due to weather
NEW ORLEANS — Heavy rain and the threat of more has prompted Xavier University of Louisiana to cancel Saturday competition in men's and women's tennis and men's and women's track and field.
In tennis, XU was to compete in Jackson, Miss., against Tougaloo and Jackson State. Those dual matches will not be rescheduled.
In track and field, Xavier will not travel to Lake Charles, La., for the McNeese Cowboy Relays. Coach Joseph Moses said he replaced that meet with an April 1 trip to Clinton, Miss., for the Mississippi College Twilight Invitational.
