   MUNCIE, Ind. - - The Ball State outdoor track & field team returns to action Friday afternoon when it hosts IPFW and IUPUI in the Cardinal Invitational at University Track.

   The meet begins at 2 p.m. with action in three field events; the hammer throw, long jump and pole vault. Track events are slated to begin at 3 p.m. with the 4x100m relay.

   The meet will also serve as senior day for the Ball State track & field program, which will honor seniors Allison Blanck (Indianapolis, Ind./Franklin Central), MaryKate Mellen (Michigan City, Ind./Michigan City), Lywanna Melvin (Aurora, Ill./Bowling Green), Janae Taylor (Richmond, Ind./Richmond) and Emilee Zets (Berlin Center, Ohio/West Branch) prior to the 4x400m relay which is set to start at 5:15 p.m.

   At last weekend’s Miami Invitational, the Cardinals finished the two-day meet with 59 points to place fourth out of the 16 teams entered in the meet. BSU’s student-athletes combined to score 19 top 10 finishes and seven career-best efforts at the meet.
