The Denison women's track and field team scored 39 points en route to an eighth-place finish at the Division III Indoor All-Ohio Championship held at Otterbein University on Saturday in Westerville, Ohio.

Senior Aedin Brennan highlighted the day with a school and meet record in the triple jump. With her second jump of the finals, Brennan pulled off an All-Ohio Championship record leap of 38'11" which bested the previous mark set in 2005 by Wilmington's Doreen Nagawa by 5.50". The mark also bested the senior's previous school record by 8.75" achieved on Feb. 20, 2015.

In addition to her triple jump victory and her second-place showing at last weekend's All-Ohio Combined Events Championship, Brennan also placed second in the long jump with a leap of 17'11".

Freshman Ajai Brooks also turned in a personal-best performance after finishing third in the 200-meter dash. Brooks shaved over a full second off her previous PR after clocking in at 26.20. The freshman's time moved her into third place on the school's top performers list.

In the first event of the day, senior Kate Benson, freshman Kalani Rose, and sophomores Phoebe Osterhout and Emily Grabauskas took fifth in the distance medley relay with a time of 12:52.28. Sophomores Hannah Hall and Arlesha Cospy rounded out the scoring in the high jump and shot put, respectively. Hall successfully cleared 5'3" to finish seventh in the high jump, while Cospy's toss of 38'11.75" was good enough for eighth in the shot put.

Mount Union captured their sixth-straight All-Ohio title with 98.5 points, edging out the host Cardinals by four tallies. Ohio Wesleyan took third with 78 points followed by Ohio Northern (66) and Baldwin Wallace (64).

Denison returns to action next weekend when they travel to Gambier, Ohio for the Kenyon College Classist which is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
