LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The University of Louisville track and field teams will host their second-straight home meet of the year, welcoming three visiting schools for the Lenny Lyles/Clark Wood Invitational on Friday, April 19, at Cardinal Park Track Stadium.

Along with event-host Louisville, the field features Southeast Missouri, Central Michigan, and East Tennessee State.

Events at the throws field are set to begin at 10:30 a.m. Field events inside the track are scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m., with running events commencing at 3 p.m. Live results from the meet can be accessed through

Early in the meet, Sam Bombaugh will headline a quartet of throwers in the men’s hammer throw. Bombaugh ranks 19th nationally in the discipline, and Nils Westrich, who is also competing in the event, is No. 32. On the women’s side, Kendall will be participating in the shot put in which she ranks No. 17 nationally, and the discus, an event she boasts a No. 20 national ranking.

In one of the first field events of the day, Michelle Kinsella will take part in the women’s high jump at 2:30 p.m. Kinsella has cleared a season-best 1.85m/6-0.75, which is listed as the fifth-best mark in the country. Conversely, Chrisjaan Smith holds the 31st-best mark on the men’s side after jumping over the bar at 2.14m/7-0.25.

On the track, sophomore Calvin Arsenault will be looking to continue to ascend in the national rankings in the both the 110m hurdles and 400m hurdles events. He ranks 28th in the intermediate hurdles and 43rd in the shorter distance.



Louisville competed last week at Cardinal Park in the fourth annual Border Battle, teaming with Kentucky to beat Hoosierland - a squad comprised of Indiana and Notre Dame - on the men’s side, 103-97, and 101-99 on the women’s side. In total, the Cardinals combined for eight victories.

Margret Harris broke the school’s six-year-old 400m record set by Elisabeth Slettum in 2007, clocking a collegiate-best 53.93 that ranks fourth in the conference in the top 50 nationally. Arsenault had a solid day for the sprints group, placing third in the 110m hurdles and 400m hurdles. His time of 14.15 in the high hurdles is the fifth fastest in school history.

Louisville’s distance group also had a pair of athletes affect the record books. Kelsey Cramsey logged a top-five school mark in the 800m, and fellow newcomer Benadate Cheruiyot raced to the fifth-fastest 3,000m steeplechase time in school history.

Other notable athletes competing at the meet include a pair of East Tennessee State jumpers. Tyler Stepp ranks seventh nationally in the long jump with a leap of 7.80m/25-7.25, while Jason Johnson is 16th nationally in triple jump with mark of 15.69m/51-5.75.
