Big Red sit in third at NCAC Championship

MEADVILLE, Pa. -- After a strong showing on day one of the North Coast Athletic Conference's Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Allegheny College, the Denison women's team currently sits in third place with a combined 29.50 team points. The Big Red trail Ohio Wesleyan in second place (57.50) and Oberlin College in first (94) after the first day of competition.

On day one of the field events, the Big Red earned a pair of top-five finishes from senior Arlesha Cospy in the hammer throw and shot put events. With a throw of 134'6" (41.01 meters) in the hammer throw, Cospy placed fifth overall while freshman Anna Vrancken trailed in ninth place with a new personal-best distance of 121'11" (37.17 meters). In the shot put, Cospy earned all-conference recognition when she finished in second with a toss of 40'4.25" (12.30 meters). Vrancken's mark of 34'7" (10.54 meters) placed her seventh overall.

Junior Mackenzie Mason rounded out DU's Friday field performances in the pole vault, logging a leap of 9'9.25" (2.98 meters) to tie Ohio Wesleyan's Erin Sheehan for seventh place.

During the preliminary running events, Denison tallied three qualifiers for the finals on Saturday, led by a fourth-place finish in the 400-meter dash from Molly Smith as she clocked in with a new PR time of 1:01.98. Senior Jessica Nix also logged a new career-low time in the 100-meter hurdles, posting a 16.42 in eighth place.

DU's third finals qualifier of the night came in the 800-meter run when Phoebe Osterhout landed in fifth place, clocking in at 2:23.09. Sophomore Sydney Lerda finished the event in ninth place with a new personal record of 2:25.69.

In the finals of the 10,000-meter run, the Big Red was led by junior Anna Fash who finished the event in second place with a time of 38:53.91.

Denison will return to Allegheny College on Saturday, May 5 for the second day of competition at the NCAC Championships in Meadville.
