BUENA VISTA, Va. — The Southern Virginia University men's and women's first-year head coach Wyatt Warnick today announced the 2018-19 indoor and outdoor track & field schedules.

"We have a good selection of indoor and outdoor meets for indoor, we have a small group going to compete at the world-famous Armory. We will follow that up with a meet at VMI's incredible brand-new facility," said Coach Warnick. "These meets will give our athletes great opportunities to achieve their goals and find success."

The outdoor season kicks off with a two-day meet Mar. 15-16 at the W&L Track and Field Carnival in nearby Lexington, Virginia. The Knights will compete in an additional four meets: Dr. Jack Toms Invitational (Mar. 22-23), Susquehanna University will then host the Jim Taylor Invitational (Mar. 29-30), the Wildcat Invitational hosted by Randolph College (Apr. 13), and Christopher Newport's the Captains Classic (Apr. 18-19).
