Brennan's day was rounded out with a time of 59.02 in the preliminaries of the 400 meter dash. That is the second-fastest time heading into Saturday's finals in the event.
DU's point scorers were rounded out by Kate Benson, Grace Murray, Phoebe Osterhout and Boss in the distance medley relay. The group combined for a time of 12:46.65 that tacked on five points to Denison's team total.
