   BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - - Ball State outdoor track & field freshman Rebecca Lomax (Indianapolis, Ind./Southport H.S.) tied for 18th in the high jump competition at the 2011 NCAA East Preliminary Round competition hosted by Indiana at the Robert C. Haugh Track & Field Complex.

   Lomax, the lone Mid-American Conference competitor in the event, successfully cleared a height of 5-8.75 (1.75m) on her third attempt to tie eight other competitors in the field of 48 jumpers. The top 12 performers in the event advanced to the NCAA Championship meet which will be held June 8-11 at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa.

   Lomax opened the meet by clearing the 5-7.00 (1.70m) mark on her first attempt, before taking three jumps to clear 5-8.75. She had three shots at her Mid-American Conference championship-winning height of 5-10.00 (1.78m) but could not clear the bar.
