Eastern Oregon University canceled its home track meet, which was scheduled for Saturday. 

LA GRANDE — The Eastern Oregon University track and field program canceled its Saturday home meet, the school announced Tuesday in a news release.

The meet, which was to be the Mountaineers' first outdoor meet of the season, was dropped, according the news release, due to the weather forecast Saturday for La Grande, which is expected to be in the 20s and 30s with high winds and a chance of snow.

Eastern still will host a meet this season, with the Cascade Collegiate Conference championship meet set to come to La Grande May 8-9.
