   MUNCIE, Ind. - - The Ball State indoor track & field team will make the short trek up I-69 to Marion, Ind., Saturday to compete in the IWU Invitational hosted by Indiana Wesleyan University at the Troyer Fieldhouse.

   Action in the field events (shot put, long jump, pole vault and high jump) is slated to begin at noon, while the women's distance medley relay kicks off the track events at 12:30 p.m.

   In addition to the Cardinals and host Wildcats, other teams competing in Saturday's meet include; Calumet State, Concordia (Mich.), Indianapolis, Judson, Kentucky Wesleyan, Olivet, Spring Arbor, St. Catharin, St. Francis, St. Joseph's and Trine

   At last season's IWU Invitational, the Cardinals collected 19 top five finishes, including three event victories (long jump, high jump and distance medley relay).

   The Cardinals return three members of the winning distance medley relay in senior Emilee Zets and sophomores Lindsay Wallace and Madelyn Webster. The relay posted a winning time of 12:51.28 last season, nearly 30 seconds faster than second place Bethel (Ind.) which clocked in at 13:27.93.

   In this season's IWU Invitational, Zets is slated to be joined on the distance medley relay by freshman Katelyn DeVries, sophomore Courtney Edon and senior MaryKate Mellen.

   Both defending high jump champion Rebecca Lomax and defending long jump champion Christina Crawford will not compete in Saturday's meet.
