CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. -- After the two-day North Coast Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Championship at Wabash College's Knowling Fieldhouse, the Big Red left the weekend in seventh-place overall with 54 team points. DU trailed sixth-place Oberlin College (60) by only six points, while Wittenberg took fifth with 88 points. Ohio Wesleyan University captured their third-straight NCAC crown with 140 points.

Following his conference championship in the triple jump on Friday night, junior David Carter posted another podium-worthy performance in the long jump event, finishing in third with a personal-best jump of 21'10.75" (6.67 meters)and adding his second All-NCAC honor.

Teammate Jake Coplin matched his PR from a year ago at the NCAC Championship with an eighth-place distance of 21'0.75" (6.42 meters), while freshman Dee Brown finished in 18th with a 19'1.25" (5.82 meters).

Denison added two more top-10 finishers in the field events, headlined by sophomore Bryce Stricker's throw of 53'2.25" (16.21 meters) to place second overall in the weight throw competition. Senior Church Humphreys totaled a new personal record in the pole vault landing in seventh-place with a 12'6" (3.81 meters).

For Stricker, his All-NCAC performance in the weight throw is a first for the Denison men's program and he is the second thrower (including shot put) in DU history to earn the All-NCAC honor. 

On the track, senior Zach Munn led the individual performers with a third-place finish in the 800-meter run, clocking in with a new indoor PR time of 1:57.83, besting his qualifying time by almost three seconds.

In the one mile run, Ben Foster landed in 10th place with a 4:28.98, while Clayton Watters followed in 13th with a season-best 4:33.46. Also in the distance events, freshman Adam Cromwell added a new personal record in the 3,000-meter run, logging a 9:26.82.

Continuing their success in the top-10, the 4X200 meter relay of Brown, Coplin, Alex Chin and Jack Ruddy placed in seventh with a time of 1:35.07. Ruddy then joined Foster, Munn and Isaac Reed to take seventh-place in the 4X400 meter relay, finishing with a 3:36.01.

Denison will now look ahead to the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship next Friday and Saturday, March 9-10 in Birmingham, Ala. before transitioning to the outdoor season on March 16 at Washington & Lee University.
