GENEVA, Ohio -- Denison's David Carter finished up his sophomore campaign with his second-straight appearance at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championship on Saturday at the SPIRE Institute.

Entering the championship event with the 18th-best mark in the triple jump, the 2016 outdoor All-American was looking to go for 2-for-2 at the national meet. Carter found out just how hard it is to reach the trophy on Saturday morning. A member of the first of two preliminary flights, the New Albany, Ohio native finished ninth in his flight with a combined leap of 45'2.25". That performance landed Carter in 19th place overall.

Benedictine freshman Luther Newburn won the national title with a stadium-record mark of 52'5.25". Newburn posted his winning jump on his first attempt of the finals. Junior Jared Lewis of Stockton placed second overall with a final performance of 50'11", while Wisconsin-Stevens Point senior Jerry Williams was third at 48'4.50".
