La Crosse, Wis.--  Denison University senior Arlesha Cospy placed fourth in the women's discus at the 2018 NCAA Division III Women's Track & Field Championship on Thursday.  This is the first All-American performance for Cospy and the 20th All-American showing in Denison women's track & field history.

Cospy entered this year's championship seeded ninth out of 22 qualifiers after her PR throw of 46.80 meters at the Big Red Invitational on April 27.  After faulting on her first attempt, Cospy posted a distance of 42.57 meters on her second attempt.  On her third attempt, Cospy moved up the leaderboard with her best attempt of the afternoon, a 46.54-meter throw.  That throw held firm and allowed her to place fourth out of the field of 22 entries in the discus.

Oberlin's Monique Newton won the national championship with a distance of 50.14 meters on the fifth attempt.  Erica Oawster of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire placed second (49.56m) and Hannah Meager of Aurora took third at 47.27 meters. 

Cospy is the second Denison female track and field athlete to post an All-American finish in the discus and the first since Laura Finkes finished third at the 2003 NCAA Division III Championship in Canton, N.Y.  Finkes' throw of 47.27 meters set a new school record.  Cospy's PR of 46.80 meters ranks second on DU's all-time list.

This marked Cospy's third year as a national qualifier.  Her previous best finish at nationals was a 16th place showing at last year's championship in Geneva, Ohio.  A nine-time All-NCAC performer and the 2016 North Coast Athletic Conference Champion in the discus Cospy recently graduated with a degree in communication from Denison.
