NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana canceled its Friday and Saturday intercollegiate athletics activities due to the northerly movement of Tropical Storm Karen in the central Gulf of Mexico.

Xavier withdrew its men’s and women’s cross country teams from Friday’s Mississippi College/Watson Ford Invitational at Clinton, Miss., and scrubbed a Saturday women’s volleyball doubleheader against Dillard and St. Thomas (Texas) at the Convocation Center.

XU cross country coach Joseph Moses said he’ll consider adding a meet to the schedule next week to replace the cancellation. The St. Thomas volleyball match will not be rescheduled, but the Dillard match will be. No makeup date, however, has been determined.

The next scheduled competition for Xavier will be a 7 p.m. Tuesday volleyball match against SUNO at The Castle. Both have unbeaten records in Gulf Coast Athletic Conference matches this season.

Xavier’s 24-hour emergency information hotline (1-866-520-9852) offers weather-related updates.
