LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The Lindsey Wilson College men's and women's track & field teams competed tonight in a non-scoring meet at the University of Louisville Cardinal Twilight at Cardinal Park.
Seven Blue Raider men and one Lindsey Wilson woman competed in the annual event that consists mostly of NCAA schools.
