The Screaming Eagles also competed at the SIU Edwardsville Twilight Open Saturday night in Edwardsville, Illinois. USI posted six top-10 finishes, including freshman Robert Becker's (Valparaiso, Indiana) second-place finish in the 5,000 meters.

USI returns to action May 4-5 when it competes at the GLVC Championships in Edwardsville.
