The following was an email to all coaches who have participated at the Stanford Invitational in the past from Stanford Director of Operations, Jess Riden. This invitational has been held since 1974.
"Unfortunately -- due to a scheduling conflict with Stanford football on Saturday, September 30, 2017 -- we will be unable to host the meet this fall.
As we certainly enjoy having you all on campus, and are proud to host such a great competition - we plan to pick back up and running as normal in 2018.
We apologize for any issues this causes, and hope you will be back for 2018!
Thanks! And please let me know if you have any questions!"
