GAMBIER, Ohio - Thanks to a pair of All-NCAC finishes from freshmen Ashley Schmoll and Marija Pavlick, Denison women's track & field is currently in sixth place after the first day of action at the 2019 North Coast Athletic Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships held at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. Posting 21 points through the first six events, the Big Red is one point shy of Wittenberg and Ohio Wesleyan who are tied for fourth place (22). Oberlin leads the way with 87 team points after the first day.

In the field events, Schmoll garnered Denison's first All-NCAC honor of the day in the discus where she placed third overall with a maximum distance of 121'3" (36.97 meters). This is also Schmoll's first all-conference accolade of her career. Sophomore Anna Vrancken followed in fifth place on a throw of 117'2" (35.73 meters), while Abby Reppert took seventh on a personal-best launch of 112'8" (34.36 meters), and Becca Skolnick checked in at 98'6" (30.02 meters) to finish in 15th.

Pavlick also earned the first All-NCAC selection of her career on Friday when she placed second overall in the javelin throw where she reached a final mark of 120'7" (36.75 meters). Sam Zimmerman rounded out the top-10 for DU in 10th place with a mark of 99' (30.17 meters), while Schmoll followed in 12th place at 93'8" (28.55 meters) and Skolnick took 15th (24.87 meters).

On the track, the Big Red was led in the 800-meter prelims by sophomore Molly Smith who qualified for Saturday's finals with a new PR time of 2:20.30 to place fourth. Sydney Lerda finished in 17th place at 2:30.23 and Allie Holmes took 19th (2:37.12).

Senior Isabella Luaces closed out Friday's prelims with a 14th place finish in the 400-meter hurdles after logging a time 1:11.27.

In the 10,000-meter finals, freshman Meagan Balch led Denison in 11th place with a final time of 41:59.37.

The Big Red will return to Kenyon on Saturday, May 4 for the second day of action at the 2019 NCAC Outdoor Track & Field Championship.
