Denison senior Aedin Brennan was named North Coast Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Week for the third time this season after winning her fourth conference championship in the pentathlon on Sunday afternoon in Delaware, Ohio.
Brennan took hope the pentathlon title with an NCAC and Denison school record score of 3,638 points. The senior opened the day by re-setting her own school record in the 60 hurdles after crossing the finish line in 9.18. That time earned her second in the event and was 14 hundredths of a second faster than her previous PR. The Denison senior maintained her second-place standing after finishing runner-up in both the high jump (5'2.25") and shot put (35'6.50").
Brennan erased a 13-point deficit and took the lead in the overall standings with a second-place showing in the long jump with a mark of 18'0.25". She went on to secure her fourth NCAC pentathlon championship and seventh overall NCAC combined events crown with a second-place finish in the 800-meter run (2:23.82).
Brennan's total moved her into second place on the national list. It was also a 65-point improvement on her previous school record set at last year's NCAC Combined Events Championship.
Denison will enter next weekend's NCAC Indoor Championship with 10 points. The 2015 NCAC Indoor meet will be held at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. Events will begin on Friday afternoon and run through Saturday.
