CINCINNATI - On Friday and Saturday, the Xavier track and field team will take part in the UIndy Relays at the University of Indianapolis. The meet will consist of several Division I and Division II programs, and will provide team members a chance to move up the BIG EAST leader boards and use the meet as a tune up, as they edge closer to the BIG EAST Indoor Championships.
