BLOOMINGTON â Plymouth High School graduate (2007) and Indiana University senior Meredith Barron will undoubtedly remember many special events from her four years at I.U., but the one scheduled for April 12 will more than likely be a standout.
Barron persuaded rapper Lil Wayne â real name Dewayne Carter â to perform at the collegeâs Assembly Hall during the annual Little 500 activities in April.
âIâve been a fan of Lil Wayne for four or five years,â Barron said. âMy friends have been talking about trying to get him to come to our campus for a long time. So, I decided to give it a try.â

Among the remaining six, half have made the trip more than once in the past decade. Triton will take the floor for a remarkable third time in just four years as the veteran Trojans (23-3) tip off against first-timer Indianapolis Metropolitan (21-6) in the Class A final at 10:30 a.m.
