The Bellarmine University men's and women's track and field teams competed at the Engineer Invitational hosted by Rose-Hulman on Saturday and a pair of men's athletes also competed at the Indiana University meet on Friday evening.

The women's team finished second in the eight team field at Rose-Hulman with Courntey McIntyre and Emily Frith setting NCAA provisional marks in winning the shot put and mile run events.  McIntrye, who also won the weight throw event at the meet, hurled the shot 13.51 meters to improve slightly on a provisional mark she set earlier this year.  Frith won the mile in exciting fashion, edging out the top runner for Rose-Hulman in a photo finish.  Her time of 5:04.90 was an NCAA DII provisional time.

Weight Throw - 1. Courtney McIntyre - 14.46m
