The Chirpies Honor Best of Ball State Sports

In its third year, The Chirpies celebrated the tremendous athletic and academic accomplishments of all Ball State sports teams. The student athletes dressed to the nines, and #Chirpies was quickly a trending topic on Twitter. The dazzling event was the place to be on campus and in Muncie on Monday night. Produced by Ball State’s Sports Link, the entire program was broadcast live on ESPN3. Well-known media personalities, accomplished alumni, members of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and hit performing artist Chase Bryant, made it a night to remember.

Here are some of the photos from the evening, and, here is the full list of winners.
