Men’s golf places 12th at Purdue Fall Invitational

“It was an awful start.” Five words described how head coach Mike Fleck felt about the opening holes for the Ball State men's golf team who opened up their first round at the bottom of the leaderboard at the Purdue Fall Invitational.  Regardless of the start, Ball State was able to turn some problems around.  “I was proud of them, how they played the rest of the day,” Fleck said. “We were probably in the top half of the team scoring-wise if you kind of scratch the start.”

Women’s golf takes eighth at Rocket Classic

Ball State's five-person roster consisted of first-year Sarah Gallagher, first-year Jasmine Driscoll, second-year Payton Bennett, first-year Madelin Boyd and graduate student Peyton Broce.  “One of the keys is always to try to minimize any doubles or worse off the card and you know, we still made a few too many of those,” head coach Cameron Andry said. “The golf course just kind of reveals where we are.” Monday - Round One

Powerlessness In Politics

I saw what opioid addiction could do. I saw the shaking, tremors and slurred speech. I saw my friends whose parents were laid off and couldn’t afford the Lunchables that many of us had in our lunchboxes. I saw the countless businesses that moved onto the mostly desolate main street – floundering and failing before the end of the year. I saw how hillbilly transplants and middle Americans felt left behind in political endeavors.

JOSLIN: Low attendance for Ball State football needs to be fixed

I have been going to Ball State University games since I was 10. I was born in Muncie and grew up in New Castle. Ball State has been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember, and I take great pride and passion in this school and our teams.  I vividly remember the first game I saw; we were playing South Florida in October 2012. Keith Wenning and Willie Snead were tearing up the Bulls’ defense en route to a 31-27 triumph that day. That was the first time I got to experience the magic of college football, live and in living color.
