WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Mike Poehlein Invitational has been cancelled due to inclement weather, head coach Lonnie Greene announced early Friday morning.
Saturday’s forecast calls for temperatures of 33 degrees and snow, with wind chills in the low 20s at the meet’s planned start time. Heavy rains also soaked the track late Thursday night and into Friday morning.
The meet will not be rescheduled.
Last year’s Mike Poehlein Invite was also cancelled after a winter storm rolled through the West Lafayette area and blanketed the campus with nine inches of snow just days before the meet was scheduled.
The Boilermakers next scheduled meet is the Texas State Invite next Friday and Saturday in San Marcos, Texas.
