DELAWARE, Ohio – Denison women's track & field collected 12 new personal records on Saturday afternoon as they placed third overall at the 2019 Marv Frye Invitational hosted at Ohio Wesleyan University. Totaling 95 points as a team, the Big Red finished ahead of fourth place Mount Vernon Nazarene University by 22 points (73) and followed second-place Albion College (116.50). Meet host OWU claimed the team title with 154 points.

Highlighted by an individual victory in the hammer throw, sophomore Anna Vrancken garnered the title with a first-place and personal-best throw of 143'5" (43.73 meters). Leah Ackerman trailed in second with a new PR of 132'4" (40.34 meters) and Abby Reppert placed sixth overall at 120'11, also a new personal record.

Vrancken and Ackerman then landed in the top-10 in the shot put where Vrancken placed sixth overall on a PR throw of 35'7.25" (10.85 meters) and Ackerman followed in seventh at 35'5.25" (10.80 meters). Freshman Ashley Schmoll rounded out the competitors in 14th place at 32'2.25" (9.81 meters).

In the discus, the Big Red were led by Schmoll who finished fourth overall on a new career-best of 123'11" (37.77 meters). Becca Skolnick followed in fifth at 117'11" (35.95 meters) with Vrancken landing in sixth (112'9") and Reppert in ninth (103'6").
