Denison sophomore sprinter Tiffany Davis paced the Big Red at the Division III All-Ohio Championship on Saturday afternoon in Westerville, Ohio.

Davis kicked the day off by winning the 60-meter dash prelim with a personal best time of 7.95.  Roughly two hours later, she returned for the finals of the event.  The sophomore won the All-Ohio title with a time of 7.92, shaving three hundredths of a second off her personal record.  Davis's day was not done as she returned to the track for the 200 dash.  In that event, she finished second with a time of 25.98, just 16 hundredths of a second shy of the Denison school record set by Jackie Berner in 2003.

Also competing in Westerville were senior Ani Mutafova and the 4x200 relay team of Rose Schrott, Jane Zelenkov, Mutafova and Davis.  Mutafova finished 11th in the 800-meter run after clocking in at 2:24.10.  The relay team also finished 11th with a time of 1:51.77.

At Friday's OWU open, sophomore Emily Siskind and first-year Kristen Geary paced the Big Red women's indoor track & field team with victories.

Siskind won the 400-meter dash with a time of 1:05.87, while junior Laura Houcque and rookie Jillian Reagan trailed in fifth (1:14.10) and sixth (1:15.31) place, respectively.  Siskind also logged a sixth-place finish in the 200 (31.64), while Houcque finished eighth after crossing the line in 32.88.

In the field events, Geary was victorious in the pole vault after clearing 9-00.25, which is the sixth-best performance in program history.  Senior Katherine Sylvia took fourth in the shot put with a toss of 33-03.75, while rookie Lauren Marino turned in a distance of 24-04.25.

Denison returns to action on Saturday (Feb. 18) at the Kenyon College Classic.
