GRANVILLE, Ohio – With the NCAC Indoor Track & Field Championships looming next weekend in Wooster, Denison women's track & field tallied four new personal records and five, top three finishes on Friday night at the North Coast Athletic Conference Last Chance Meet hosted at Denison's Mitchell Fieldhouse in Granville.

DU's efforts were highlighted with a first-place finish from Danni Gutelius in the high jump where she matched her personal best of 5'1" (1.55 meters) to win the event. She also placed fifth overall in the 200-meter dash after crossing the finish line at 29.83.

In the weight throw, freshman Leah Ackerman led the Denison pack in third place with a PR of 44'2" (13.46 meters), giving her the third-highest personal record in the history of the program. Sophomore Anna Vrancken trailed in sixth place with a throw of 43'4.50" (13.22 meters), and Abby Reppert (42'0.75") and Becca Skolnick (34'7.75") rounded out the top 10 for DU.

Ackerman also notched a new PR in the shot put, placing second overall on a final mark of 36'4.75" (11.09 meters). Vrancken followed in third at 36'2" (11.02 meters).

In the pole vault, senior Mackenzie Mason tied for seventh on a leap of 10'3.25" (3.13 meters).

On the track, the Big Red found success in the distance events, led by Sarah Radziewicz in the 3,000 meter run with a third-place finish of 11:18.33. In the 800, Sydney Lerda paced DU in sixth place on a time of 2:32.03 while Allie Holmes landed in ninth and set a new personal record of 2:35.41.

Denison will return to action this Sunday, Feb. 24 when freshman Ashley Schmoll competes in the 2019 NCAC Combined Events Championship hosted by Kenyon College in Gambier.
