   ATHENS, Ohio - - Junior Christina Crawford (Belleville, Mich./Romulus) turned in an eighth-place showing in the long jump to lead the Ball State track & field team on the second day of the 2014 Mid-American Conference Outdoor Championships hosted by Ohio.

   Through seven scored events at the three-day meet, Kent State holds the overall lead with 47 points.

   With her eighth-place effort of 5.71m in the long jump, Crawford picked up the Cardinals’ first point of the 2014 MAC Outdoor Championships. Following her performance in the finals of the long jump, Crawford had a quick turnaround for her second event, the 100m dash, in which she placed 15th overall at 12.38.

   In the day’s final event, Ball State’s junior twin sisters Courtney Edon (New Palestine, Ind./New Palestine) and Caitlynn Edon (New Palestine, Ind./New Palestine) placed 11th (11:13.47) and 19th (11:31.25), respectively, in the 3000m steeplechase.
