NSA leaker Snowden’s passport revoked Ecuador’s foreign minister receives request for asylum | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — The former National Security Agency contractor who disclosed information about highly classified surveillance programs has had his U.S. passport revoked, an official said Sunday. Edward Snowden’s passport was annulled before he left Hong Kong for Russia and while that could complicate his travel plans, the lack of a passport alone could not thwart his plans, the U.S. official
said. If a senior official in another country or with an airline orders it, a country could overlook the withdrawn passport, the official said. The U.S. official would only discuss the passport on the condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the matter. Snowden’s allies said he was heading toward Ecuador, where the foreign minister said the government had received a request for asylum. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki refused to comment on Snowden’s passport specifically but said individuals facing arrest warrants could have their passport withdrawn. “Such a revocation does not affect citizenship status.

wanted on felony charges, such as Mr. Snowden, should not be allowed to proceed in any further international travel other than is necessary to return him to the United States,” Psaki said in a statement. The State Department said the United States was in touch, through diplomatic and law enforcement channels, with countries that Snowden might travel through or to. Snowden, a CIA technician and former NSA contractor, helped The Guardian and The Washington Post to disclose surveillance programs that collects vast amounts of online data and email, sometimes sweeping up information on ordinary American citizens.

Ball State administrator’s vacation two weeks ago took a short detour when she briefly joined a protest in Turkey. Yasemin Tunc, assistant vice president for academic YASEMIN TUNC technology solutions, was visiting her family in her home country when part of the nationwide protest came through their neighborhood. The protest was part of the Turks’ ongoing demonstrations against the government for being too invasive in their private lives. “We heard people banging pots and pans and people honking their car horns, so we went over there,” she said. “There were just a whole bunch of people, hundreds of people, walking, singing the national anthem and some very popular marches.”

INDIANAPOLIS — The superintendent of Indiana’s public schools announced Friday she would seek more than $614,000 in damages from CTB/McGraw-Hill, the same day company President Ellen Haley apologized to lawmakers for failures in online standardized tests that caused chaos at the end of the school year.
Superintendent Glenda Ritz said the money she’s seeking would cover fines laid out in the state’s $95 million contract with the testing company and pay for an independent review of the test’s validity and improved reporting data. Department of Education staff said the fines could easily grow to millions of dollars. Indiana’s troubles have punctuated a nationwide shift from pencil-and-paper tests to online exams.

Officials have the ability to collect phone and Internet information broadly but need a warrant to examine specific cases where they believe terrorism is involved. Since news organizations began publishing reports based on Snowden’s disclosures, he had been in hiding in Hong Kong, a former British colony with a high degree of autonomy from mainland China. The United States formally sought Snowden’s extradition from Hong Kong but was rebuffed; Hong Kong officials said the U.S. request did not fully comply with their laws. Snowden was said to have landed in Moscow on Sunday but was not seen leaving the airport.

online test over two days at the end of April, McGraw-Hill executives said Friday. “The consequences of CTB’s server failures were real and significant for Indiana schools,” Ritz said in a news release issued before McGraw Hill executives spoke to lawmakers. Beyond the fines included in the contract, state lawmakers said many school districts dug into already-stretched budgets to cover overtime for teachers and staff to clean up the testing troubles. Indiana lawmakers plan to meet July 29 to review the results.

Since revealing himself as the principal source for reports in The Guardian and The Washington Post, Snowden had been in hiding in Hong Kong. The former CIA operative and NSA contractor has had his passport revoked, although that was unlikely to stop Snowden’s travel if he could find a friendly government to host him. 3. THE EVASION
Before the first stories were published, Snowden left Hawaii for Hong Kong. This weekend, he left Hong Kong and is said to have arrived in Moscow, but was not seen leaving the airport. His allies say he is en route to Ecuador, which has an extradition treaty with the United States but permits exemptions for political asylum. Ecuador’s embassy in London has housed and protected WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange.
The United States unsuccessfully sought cooperation from Hong Kong to extradite Snowden to the U.S. to face criminal charges. Instead, Snowden shuttled to Russia, with whom the United States does not have an extradition treaty. His next stops could be Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador. All three have extradition treaties with the United States, but are not strong allies. 5. THE FUTURE
The disclosures so far have been damaging but the journalists who have published them have said they limited the scope to protect national security. The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said she has heard Snowden has up to 200 documents and another lawmaker suggested Snowden had received asylum in Ecuador in exchange for disclosing more information.

help track final grades | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
“We have had a situation where a student was able to obtain a password for a professor and changed their grade,” Malm said. “We were able to detect that situation happening and were able to give the right administrators enough information to determine who it was.” Ball State does not comment in individual cases of misconduct for privacy reasons. Malm said Blackboard also secures final grades by sending them to Ball State’s banner. Grades can only be changed by a paper process through the registrar’s office once they’ve been sent to the banner and the submission period closes. “Not all universities have Blackboard, but most universities today have some learning management system and some student information system,” he said. “I think Ball State does a very good job at how we manage these systems and how we run them and the processes we have in place to first prevent and then detect any kind of thing that would happen along the lines of what happened at Purdue.” The integrity of the grading system and the reputation of the university are two reasons why Gillilan said grade security is important. “Students’ grades are used to calculate a GPA, which can have an effect on their financial aid, their transcript, whether or not they get into professional school, how they are viewed or valued as a potential candidate down the road,” he said. “If the system that records and produces reports of those grades can’t be trusted as having integrity and being secured, it devalues students’ grades, which are a demonstration of what they know. Bottom line, it makes everybody look bad. That’s one of many reasons why this incident is being taken so seriously by Purdue and other institutions.”

BSU’s review committee to investigate honors class Provost says panel could have results by end of month Terry King, Ball State provost and vice president of academic affairs, said he’s not sure what the committee reviewing professor Eric Hedin’s “Boundary of Science” course will find, but he should know by the end of this month. Last month, the Freedom From Religion Foundation issued a letter of complaint to Ball State saying Hedin’s course has presented a onesided argument for intelligent design rather than an honest attempt at investigating the relationship of science and religion. Ball State has appointed a
review committee of four faculty members to investigate and determine the course’s academic integrity. The committee includes three Ball State faculty: Gary Dodson, professor of biology; Richard Fluegeman Jr., professor of geological sciences; and Juli Thorsen Eflin, professor of philosophy. It also includes Catherine Pilachowski, a professor of astronomy at Indiana University. King said the committee will review if the content is appropriate, if the professor is qualified and if the teaching is appropriate. He said he seeks advice often, but has chosen the committee because of the complexity of the case. “It’s not exactly clear to me,” he said. “If this were an ordinary differential equations math course and someone wanted to talk about nonmathematical subjects in the course, then I would be very

concerned. This is an honors course and it may be that discussion is appropriate, but I don’t know yet.” Freedom From Religion Foundation’s attorney Andrew Seidel said the committee is exactly what the foundation was looking for. “The letter that we wrote has kind of been blown out of proportion,” he said. “We asked for an investigation into the class and if the allegations are confirmed, which we do expect they will be, that professor Hedin be removed from the class. We didn’t ask for the class to be canceled or anything of that nature.” King said the university still hasn’t received any complaints from inside the university and only one complaint from outside the university from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, an organization whose purpose is to promote RICHARD FLUEGEMAN JR.

He said some confuse First Amendment freedom of speech with academic freedom in a course, but the two are different. “On the teaching side it is very specific about in the appropriate teaching of a course, one can bring in controversial concepts if it’s appropriate to the nature of the course.

Ohio air show plane crash kills 2 Wing walker, pilot die in aerial accident in front of audience | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CINCINNATI — Risking death every time they go to work, wing walkers need courage, poise, a healthy craving for adrenaline and, most importantly, they need to be meticulously exacting with every step they take on the small planes that carry them past dazzled crowds at speeds up to 130 mph. Jane Wicker fit that bill, her friends and colleagues in the air show industry said Sunday. Wicker, 44, and pilot Charlie Schwenker, 64, were killed Saturday in a horrific, fiery plane crash captured on video at a southwestern Ohio air show and witnessed by thou-
sands. The cause of the crash isn’t yet known. Wicker, a mother of two teenage boys and recently engaged, sat helplessly as the aircraft she was on suddenly rolled and slammed into the ground, exploding on impact and stunning the crowd at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton. The show closed shortly afterward but reopened Sunday with a moment of silence for the victims. The crash drew attention to the rarefied profession of wing walking, which began in the 1920s in the barnstorming era of air shows following World War II. The practice fell off the middle of the 20th century but picked back up again in the 1970s. Still, there are only about a dozen wing walkers in the U.S., said John Cudahy, president of the Leesburg, Va.-based International Council of Air Shows.

Saturday He said Wicker had “quite a following around the country,” known for her engaging, charming personality on the ground and creativity and professionalism while wing walking. Teresa Stokes, of Houston, said she’s been wing walking for the past 25 years and does a couple of dozen shows
every year. The job mostly requires being in shape to climb around the plane while battling winds, she said. “It’s like running a marathon in a hurricane,” said Stokes, who just did a show in Minnesota last week and will head out for another one in Montana next week. “When you’re watching from the ground it looks pretty graceful, but up there, it’s happening very fast and it’s high energy and I’m really moving fast against hurricane-force winds.” Stokes, who had been an aerobatic pilot before becoming a wing walker, said she was attracted to performing stunts because she thought it’d be exciting. “It is the craziest fun ride you’ve ever been on,” she said. “You’re like Superman flying around, going upside-down doing rolls and loops, and I’m just screaming and laughing.”
TURKEY: Native of Turkey says she is excited to take political action for 1st time in demonstrations | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Tunc said part of her excitement comes from this being one of her first political experiences. “I came here when I was 21, so I didn’t get a chance to vote there, and I’m not a U.S. citizen, so I never voted here, so I’ve never voted in my entire life,” she said. “This is the first time that I’m getting a chance to be politically active, so it’s really exciting to me.” The protest Tunc took part in was in Yeşilyurt, a town in southwestern Turkey roughly 400 miles from the nation’s capital of Ankara, where many of the larger protests are taking place. “I think it’s very exciting,” Tunc said. “It’s unfortunate that it had to come to this, but I think this government had gone a little too far in terms of restricting people’s freedoms.” Tunc said the Turkish government, led by the prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has made laws that restrict certain behaviors that Islam denounces, including kissing in public and buying alcohol near schools and mosques. “I think the government had forgotten that there was a whole range of people living in the country and started focusing on their own base and really started to ignore and maybe even impose their own values on everyone,” Tunc said. “I was hoping this would be a wakeup call for the government.” The bigger protests have encountered some clashes with police, but many are practicing nonviolent methods, including the “Standing Man,” a protester who stood silently in Istanbul’s Taksim Square, a popular commercial area and a hub for protests. Tunc thinks the method of protest is “ingenious.” “They are looking to people like Gandhi in terms of
protest,” she said. “They’re looking for any kind of nonviolent way to tell the government, ‘Hey don’t forget about us.’ I think the standing was a great way to protest.” Many of the qualities of the protests are similar to those of the Arab Spring protests, such as the use of social media and the heavy youth involvement. Tunc agrees that the methods are similar, but the reasoning behind the two protest movements are different. “Turkey’s a secular country, and they’re protesting the creeping of Islam into everyday life, whereas in Egypt, they brought in Islam as their government, or the party that is the Muslim Brotherhood,” she said. “It’s really the reverse of it.” Hannah Beson, a senior nursing major, said protesting can be a good way to make one’s voice be heard. “If it’s something that they believe in and want to fight for, then I don’t see a problem with it,” Beson said. Sam Hardin, a junior criminal justice major, said while he hasn’t found anything important enough to him to protest about, protests are important for people to act on what they believe is right. “It’s like free speech, but not exactly like it. It’s like the act how you want to act on an issue that you believe is true, but others might not,” he said. Tunc said the protest is a good way to see how much people will do for something they believe in and the importance of getting involved. “I think it’s a good case study for how important democracy is,” she said. “People are willing to really take so much risk, risk their lives for it, so Ball State students should really be thankful that they live in a country where democracy is so valued.”
CHILD DIES, MUNCIE COUPLE JAILED MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Muncie police have jailed a couple on neglect charges after a 5-year-old Haitian girl in their care died. Officers arrested husband and wife Marcus and Charlene Tabb early Sunday on preliminary charges of neglect of a dependent resulting in bodily injury. The Star Press reports the girl had suspicious injuries. Police Lt. Steve Cox described the couple as the guardians of the girl. He said other children in the home ranging in age from 5 to 12 are now in the custody of Child Protective Services. Deputy Delaware County Coroner James Clevenger said authorities believe the girl’s biological mother remains in Haiti. Clevenger said the cause of death was not known and that an autopsy had been scheduled for Monday.
GIRL SCOUTS OF AMERICA RUN INTO FINANCIAL PROBLEMS National program faces $347 million pension plan deficit THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Given the friction and financial woes facing the Girl Scouts these days, perhaps it’s time for a giant friendship circle. Under that long-standing tradition, a ring of Scouts clasp hands and give a little squeeze, accompanied by a silent wish of good will. Just a year after its centennial celebrations, the Girl Scouts of the USA finds itself in a different sort of squeeze. Its interconnected problems include declining membership and revenues, a dearth of volunteers, rifts between leadership and grassroots members, a pension plan with a $347 million deficit and an uproar over efforts by many local councils to sell venerable summer camps. The tangle of difficulties has prompted one congressman to request an inquiry by the House Ways and Means Committee into the pension liabilities and the sale of camps. “I am worried that America’s Girl Scouts are now selling cookies to fund pension plans instead of camping,” wrote Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, in a letter last month to the committee chairman. Compounding the problems are tensions at GSUSA headquarters in New York, where
several senior executives have quit or been ousted since Anna Maria Chavez took over as CEO in 2011. Last week, some of the roughly 325 employees there were invited to take early retirement, and Chavez said an unspecified number of layoffs were expected in August to offset the revenue losses. Chavez insists the GSUSA is on the right track, although she acknowledged that sweeping changes in structure and programs over the past 10 years have been difficult for many in the Scouts’ extended family. “Change can be unsettling and it is not surprising that some would prefer for us to remain static,” she said. “But doing so would be a disservice to girls who need us now more than ever.” Indeed, there’s a common denominator between the GSUSA leaders and their critics — earnest expressions of devotion to the Girl Scouts and fervent hopes that it manages to thrive. “I care so much about this organization, and that’s why I hate to see it pulled down,” said Suellen Nelles, CEO of a local council based in Fairbanks, Alaska. “We have leadership at the top who are toxic to this organization and need to go.” Connie Lindsey, the president of GSUSA’s governing board, said the board had confidence in Chavez, despite the various problems. “Our board supports our CEO,” said Lindsey, a corporate executive from Chicago.

Girl Scouts participate in a yoga session during a meeting in Texas. The century-old organization is struggling financially after numerous employees were allowed to retire early, leaving a large deficit in pension plans.
“We know it’s a difficult charge we’ve given her.” Since 2003, the Girl Scouts have undergone what they describe as a “complete transformation” aimed at making their programs and image more relevant to a diverse population of girls and parents. Changes have affected uniforms, handbooks, merit badges, program materials, even the logo and
the fine print on the boxes of Girl Scout cookies. “Our brand, as iconic as it is, was misunderstood — it was dated,” Chavez said in an interview in her Manhattan office Friday. Yet today the Girl Scouts have about 2.2 million youth members, down from more than 2.8 million in 2003. Donations to the national office and local
councils plunged to $104 million in 2011 from nearly $148 million in 2007. The biggest change — implemented from 2006 to 2009 by Chavez’ predecessor, Kathy Cloninger — was a realignment that slashed the number of local councils from 312 to 112. It was intended to increase efficiency, but resulted in the departure of many longtime
employees and volunteers. A handful of councils resisted, and one of them, the Manitou Council based in Sheboygan, Wis., sued to block its merger in 2008 after negotiations failed to resolve its concerns. The council argued that it deserved the same protections as a for-profit franchise operator, and in 2011 the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed. “From a commercial standpoint, the Girl Scouts are not readily distinguishable from Dunkin’ Donuts,” the court wrote in its opinion. Also refusing to merge was the council led by Nelles — the Farthest North Girl Scout Council in Fairbanks.

A ZOMBIE MOVIE DONE RIGHT
PHOTOS COURTESY OF SKYDANCE PRODUCTIONS
Brad Pitt stars in “World War Z,” where he plays a man trying to find a way to end the zombie invasion. The movie was based on the book by Max Brooks, which carries the same title.
Zombies are everywhere in Marc Forster’s new apocalyptic thriller, “World War Z.” And there’s nothing that can keep these terrifyingly animalistic creatures from swarming the streets of the biggest cities in the world, changing everyone they come in contact with. I was not expecting much from this movie in fear that it’d be another cheesy, half-baked attempt at making zombies interesting through excessive gore and violence. We’ve seen it all before, a zombie outbreak occurs and a group of healthy humans band together to overcome their destruction and chaos. While the movie stays true to this traditional theme, the story is told in a way that’s refreshingly intelligent, endlessly thrilling and ironically, very human. Brad Pitt offers a phenomenal lead performance as a United Nations investigator turned family man, Gerry Lane. Lane is reluctantly forced back into his old life when he agrees to lead a world mission in search of a cause of the worldwide zombie outbreak. The movie isn’t your typical zombie flick relying on blood, guts and gore to convey the idea of mayhem; it tackles world issues to make what’s happening seem very real and
possible, offering a look at how the world would be impacted were something like this to ever occur. For example, by emphasizing the importance of each place Lane visits and how they play a part in the world, the movie works to show how a single issue can transcend global disagreements. Even hinting at a potential bridge between the war torn countries of Israel and Palestine. Fueled by the love for his family, Lane fights through everything that stands in his way. Pitt brings this passion to the screen, making the movie less about the zombies and more about one man who will stop at nothing to protect his family. Through his travels, Lane uses his extraordinary analytical skills to piece together a way to combat the outbreak. The movie culminates with a suspenseful sequence where he might just find a way to do so. With the zombie apocalypse scenario getting play in almost every form of pop culture, “World War Z” offers a surprisingly refreshing and mature take on an otherwise old idea. This movie deserves a 9/10. With an invigorating plot and extreme action sequences, “World War Z” is exhilarating throughout and bound to keep you on the edge of your seat. Rating: HHHHHHHHHI

PAULA DEEN FANS EXPRESS OUTRAGE Food Network drops cooking shows after Deen’s deposition | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAVANNAH, Ga. — Fans of Paula Deen are venting their outrage over the decision by the Food Network to dump the comfort-food queen after she acknowledged using racial slurs in the past. A day after announcing that it’s dropping Deen from its roster of celebrity cooks, the cable television network was served heaping portions of Southern fried outrage by her fans. Angry messages piled up Saturday on the network’s Facebook page, with many Deen fans threatening to change the channel for good. “So good-bye Food Network,” one viewer
wrote. “I hope you fold like an accordion!!!” The decision to drop Deen, whose daytime shows have been a Food Network PAULA DEEN fixture since Celebrity came cook formerly 2002, two days after featured on the Food Network disclosure of a recent court deposition in which Deen was asked under oath if she had ever used the N-word, a racial epithet. “Yes, of course,” 66-yearold Deen said, though she added, “It’s been a very long time.” Deen and her brother are being sued by a former manager of their restaurant who said she was harassed and worked in an environment rife with innuendo and racial slurs. Marilynne Wilson, a nurse
from Jacksonville, Florida, said that watching Deen’s cooking show was a weekend ritual for her and she’s furious at the Food Network for dumping her. “I was shocked. I thought she’d get a fair trial,” Wilson said Saturday after stopping to buy souvenirs at the gift shop Deen owns next to her Savannah restaurant. “I think the Food Network jumped the gun.” Wilson’s friend Debbie Brown said the Food Network is “basically convicting” Deen. “They should have waited until it goes to court,” she said. Deen issued a videotaped apology Friday in which she asked fans and critics alike for forgiveness. It had been posted online for about an hour when the Food Network released a terse statement that it “will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month.” The network refused to

Earlier in the week, they tweeted satirical names for recipes using #PaulasBestDishes.

Caddy, teammate make surprising run in amateur tourney DAKOTA CRAWFORD SPORTS EDITOR |@DakotaCrawford_
Teammates on the Ball State women’s golf team, Jenna Hague and Meghan Perry, were side-by-side during the 113th Women’s Western Golf Association National Amateur Championship at Dayton Country Club. After being eliminated in her first-round match, Perry took up caddying for Hague. She said Perry made her unexpected second-place finish in the tournament possible. “We kept it light-hearted, we kept it fun,” Hague said. “If [Perry’s] not on the bag, I probably don’t even win my second match, so she was a big part of it.” The two would discover that a relationship off the course had strengthened their relationship on it.
ATP WORLD TOUR
Hague said Perry, her good friend and roommate, provided a reliable voice on the field. Even in a critical situation that could have been match-deciding, she was able to lean on her teammate. “[Perry] has the guts to call me off shot and say ‘I don’t think you have the right club in your hand.’ That takes a lot of trust in a relationship that really you can only form with certain people,” she said. Perry helped to read greens, to call shots and to keep her friend at ease on the course. The result was a tournament run that few, even Hague herself, saw coming. Ball State women’s golf coach Katherine Mowat was as thrilled with the result as anyone. “It’s one of the biggest things you can accomplish, as an amateur,” Mowat said. “You look at the seeding strength and the beginning 144 golfers, it’s just flooded with talent. It’s just an incredible feat.” Hague competed for six-consecutive days before falling
Federer seeks 2nd-consecutive Wimbledon title Athlete will face challenging field for Wimbledon
BY THE NUMBERS

17 career losses
LONDON — As he has six previous times, Roger Federer will open Wimbledon on Monday as the defending champion, stepping onto Centre Court for the first match of what he hopes will be another two-week stay at the All England Club. It’s an honor reserved for the men’s titleholder. That scheduling perk is also where any hint of preferential treatment for Federer comes to a halt. Because of the way the draw came out, Federer could have to defeat Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray before even getting to the final. “I’m ready for the challenge,” Federer said. “I like tough draws. I don’t shy away from them.” Murray also plays Monday, wrapping up the day’s action on Centre Court against Germany’s Benjamin Becker. Nadal, who comes in with a stretch of nine straight appearances in tournament finals since returning from his knee injury, faces Belgium’s Steve Darcis on Court 1. Sitting back watching it all will be top-seeded Novak Djokovic, who is on the opposite side of the draw and, on paper, has the easiest path to the final. “I think it’s going to be a great Monday for tennis,” Djokovic said with a smile. He’s the 11-10 favorite at the London sports books and will open Tuesday barring rain, which is not in the forecast for most of the first week. Third-seeded Federer’s tough draw, to say nothing of his age (31) and his lessthan-inspiring 2013 season makes him something of a long shot this time at Wimbledon. He’s listed at 9-1 behind fifth-seeded Nadal (92), second-seeded Murray (7-2) and Djokovic. “The more you play on it, the more you learn about it,” Federer said. “Today I know what it takes, which is a good thing. The excitement is the same. Still hungry and wanting to win and wanting to prove how good I can play.”

She defeated golfers from North Carolina State and Michigan State, as well as Ohio State and Arizona State commits. The caliber of opponent Hague competed against in the tournament made it that much more important to her. “It’s really big, probably my biggest tournament showing, ever,” Hague said. “To go head-to-head with some of the best players that go to big schools, too, it was a big confidence-booster for me.” After overcoming the solid

Despite the successful showing, Merkel is trying to keep his focus on the off-season. “It was really important to get a good start to the summer,” Merkel said. “It’s a really good start to build on. I’m trying really hard to take it one step at a time and not really get ahead of myself.” He has the summer to work on mechanics within his game that will help the Ball State team improve. The short game – putting and chipping – are a big focus for the rising senior. But
his game may not be the only one that can make a difference next year. “I hate to tell you that I’m not looking forward to next year because I am a little bit, I really love it,” Merkel said. “We have a fun time, and you’re always excited when you get to add some new pieces, and I think this could be a really successful year for us.” The team will add three freshman golfers next year, all of which were named all-state by Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association. “That’s definitely something that doesn’t happen all the time, to bring three all-state golfers,” Merkel said. “I think this is going to be a strong class that can really help us out.” After making an appearance in NCAA Nationals last season, Merkel said the Ball State men’s golf program has a lot to be excited about. “It’s going to be the best schedule our team has possibly ever had,” Merkel said. “So with that, there are a lot of opportunities that we haven’t had before. Whether it be competing with some really good teams, or just the opportunity to have more national ranking, or as our coach says, to help us ‘stay relevant.’”
