    NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The Notre Dame track and field team is set to host its second indoor meet of the season on Saturday, when four schools join the Irish for the annual Notre Dame Invitational.

    The Irish welcome BIG EAST opponents DePaul and South Florida to the Loftus Sports Center as well as Michigan State and Western Michigan. Field events get underway at 10 a.m. with the men's long jump, while track events are set to begin at 12 p.m. with the women's 60-meter hurdles.

    Notre Dame is coming off a weekend at the GVSU Bob Eubanks Open that saw the Irish win the men's 400m, 600m and 4x400m relay, while senior Maddie Buttinger won the pentathlon. Freshman Chris Giesting tied the track record in the 600m with a time of 1:19.12.
