Performance list for the 2010 Fred Hardy Invitational (formerly Fork Union Invitational) to be held Saturday, January 16th at the Estes Athletic Center in Fork Union, Va.
Brief preview for some of the top meets this weekend in Virginia at Liberty University, Boo Williams Sportsplex, and Fork Union Military Academy. This weekend will mark the return of Lizzie Powell back to competition after the defending Group AAA state champion and meet record holder learned she had cancer following last year's state outdoor meet. If you had to choose one athlete to root for this year, the Patrick Henry senior Powell has to be the one after being dealt such life-changing news following her outdoor state title in the pole vault. Powell will be competing on Friday in the pole vault at the Liberty Flames High School Invitational in Lynchburg.
As one of the state's longest running high school indoor invitationals moved into another decade, two local female athletes really excelled at a familar venue for both of them in Orange County's Ashontae Jackson and Louisa County's Javanique Burruss with double wins in their specialty of events.
