Denison freshmen Ajai Brooks and David Carter posted three All-American performances on the final day of the 2016 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championship from Walston-Hoover Stadium in Waverly, Iowa.

Brooks opened the afternoon with her first outdoor and second-career All-American honor after placing sixth in the 100-meter dash. The freshman sprinter edged out seventh-place Erica Dynes of Wartburg by four thousandths of a second. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps sophomore Tyra Abraham captured the 100-meter crown with a time of 12.10, one-hundredth of a second ahead of Illinois Wesleyan senior Nia Joiner. Puget Sound senior Allanah Whitehall crossed the line third in 12.22.

Just over an hour later, Brooks used a late surge over the final 50 meters to take fifth in the 200-meter event with a time of 25.05. With her two performances, Brooks becomes the first freshman female in program history to earn two All-American awards at the same championship meet. Baldwin Wallace senior Melanie Winters won the 200-meter dash with a final time of 24.67, while sophomores Amber Celen of Bridgewater and Abraham were second (24.71) and third (24.85), respectively.

Carter opened the event with a personal-record jump of 48'1.25" en route to finishing the opening round of the first heat in second place. The freshman improved upon that mark in his final attempt where he combined for a new PR leap of 48'6", moving him into first place at the completion of his preliminary heat. The freshman's top prelim mark surpassed his previous personal record by one foot and three inches and moved him into fourth on the school's top performers list. Following the second heat of the prelims, Carter's mark ranked fifth which moved him into the nine-athlete final.

In the finals, only Jerry Williams from Wisconsin-Stevens Points made an improvement from the prelims, jumping from eighth to fifth place. Williams' opening mark of 48'7.25" moved him ahead of Carter who finished sixth in the final standings. With that finish, Carter became the third athlete in program history to earn All-American honors in the triple jump. His sixth-place showing in the event also marks the second-highest triple jump finish by a Denison athlete.

Buffalo State's Benjamin Ezike won the triple jump title with a combined leap of 50'11.50", while Stockton's Jared Lewis finished second with a final mark of 50'7.25". Third place went to Ta'riq Thomas of Delaware Valley with a jump of 48'8.25".
