OBERLIN, Ohio--  Denison sophomore David Carter placed first in the triple jump, headlining day one of two at the 2017 North Coast Athletic Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships.  Denison sits in fifth place in the overall standings with 28 points.  Wabash College leads with 52 points while Ohio Wesleyan trails with 51 points through seven events.

Carter set a new personal best with a leap of 13.98 meters (45'10.50") to win the triple jump.  That is the fifth best performance in the event in school history.  In addition to Carter's win, first-year James Dixie earned all-conference certificate by placing third with a jump of 12.85 meters (42'02.00").

In the men's weight throw, Bryce Stricker logged a PR and broke the school record in the event with a throw of 14.79 meters (48'06.25").  He placed fourth in the event and picked up five points toward the Big Red's cause.

In the distance medley relay, Denison's team of Patrick Dunn, Jack Ruddy, Zach Munn and Niall Clancey placed fifth with a time of 10:35.87.

DU's Friday night was rounded out by Church Humphreys who placed 10th in the pole vault by clearing 11'7.75".  Rhys Fitschen-Brown finished 17th in the 5,000 meters in 16:39.92.

The NCAC Championship will continue on Saturday, March 4 at Oberlin College.
