PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- Denison men's track and field posted eight finishes in the top three to place third overall at the Carnegie Mellon Quad Meet on Saturday afternoon in Pittsburgh, Pa. With 131 team points, the Big Red placed behind Penn State-Behrend in second with 177 points and host Carnegie Mellon in first with 221. 

Leading the way for the Big Red were individual winners David Carter and Isaac Reed. In the long jump, Carter placed first overall with a distance of 21'6.25" (6.56 meters), while sophomore Jake Coplin trailed in third place with a 20'8.75" (6.32 meters). Alex Chin placed fifth in the event with a new PR of 19'8.75" (6.01 meters) and Dee Brown finished in ninth (18'9.50").

In the 110 meter hurdles, Reed led the DU competitors with a first-place time of 16.14. James Dixie followed in fifth, clocking in at 16.95, and Max Giarrusso finished in seventh with a 19.08.

Dixie would go on to compete in the javelin throw where he placed 10th overall with a throw of 140'8.50" (42.89 meters), just behind senior Church Humphreys who led the team in seventh place with a distance of 152'4.50" (46.44 meters). Humphreys also added a top-five finish in the pole vault, placing fifth with a 12'4.75" (3.78 meters).

Dixie also placed fourth in the triple jump (41'3") and seventh in the high jump (5'7"). Ryan Fleming led the Big Red in the high jump, placing third with a new PR height of 6'0.75" (1.85 meters).

In the hammer throw event, sophomore Bryce Stricker led DU in second place with a new school record of 152'2.50". He also placed seventh in the shot put, reaching a distance of 40'1". Austin McManus added a sixth-place finish in the hammer throw (121'6.75") and seventh place in the discus throw (110'8"), both of which were new personal records.

On the track, Ben Foster led the charge with a 4:04.60 in the 1,500-meter run, good enough for a new personal-best and a third-place finish. Freshman Adam Cromwell followed in fifth with a 4:21.60, and Clayton Watters logged a 4:23.03 in ninth. Foster also landed a new PR in the 800-meter run, finishing in sixth place with a time of 2:00.84. Finishing two spots ahead was Zach Munn in fourth place with a 1:59.99.

Besides his top 10 finish in the long jump, Brown also put together a nice day on the track, including a new personal record in the 100-meter dash, finishing in second with an 11.65. He also placed sixth in the 200-meter dash (23.59) and joined Isaac Andrews, Carter and Coplin to finish the 4X100 meter relay in second overall with a time of 44.55.

The men's team will go back to work next Friday through Saturday, April 6-7 when they travel to Delaware, Ohio to compete in Ohio Wesleyan's Marv Frye Invitational.
