LEXINGTON, Va. -- Led by a pair of first place finishes from Ivan Maldonado and David Carter, Denison men's track and field compiled nine top-10 finishes and four PR's on day two of the Washington & Lee Carnival meet this Saturday afternoon.

Maldonado, making his first appearance since the 2017 outdoor campaign, won the men's javelin event with a top-throw of 168'2.50" (51.26 meters) while senior Church Humphreys landed less than eight feet behind Maldonado in sixth place with a new personal-best distance of 160'5.75" (48.91 meters). Sophomore James Dixie finished the event in 10th place with a 136'1" (41.47 meters).

Leading the way in the triple jump, Carter placed first overall with a leap of 46'5.50" (14.16 meters) with Dixie landing in eighth with a 41'10.50" (12.76 meters). Junior Isaac Reed finished just one spot back of Dixie in ninth place, reaching a distance of 41'7.75" (12.69 meters).

In the men's shot put, sophomore Bryce Stricker placed 13th with a throw of 39'1.25" (11.92 meters), while Austin Burgess finished 19th after finding a distance of 37'4" (11.38 meters). The field event success was rounded out by Humphreys in the pole vault where he finished in a tie for ninth with a height of 11'11.75" (3.65 meters).

On the track, the day was started off with a fifth-place finish in the 4X100 meter relay by the group of Carter, Coplin, Dee Brown and Alex Chin who clocked in at 44.48 seconds. Coplin then took 17th in the 100-meter dash, logging a PR time of 11.82. Brown finished two places behind him in 19th (11.85), and Chin landed in 32nd place (12.09).

In the 800, sophomore Ben Foster paced the Big Red in 17th place with a new personal-best time of 2:01.21 and Kenny Connelly finished in 41st with a 2:09.43

The hurdle events saw DU capture a pair of top-15 finishes when Dixie placed 15th in the 110-meter hurdles (17.41) and Jack Ruddy finished eighth overall in the 400-meter hurdles (58.54).

The Big Red will take two weeks off before returning on March 30 when they travel to Pittsburgh, Pa. to compete in the two-day Carnegie Mellon Quad Meet.
