WOOSTER, Ohio -- The Denison men's track and field team finished second at the Fighting Scots Invitational hosted by the College of Wooster on Saturday after racking up 96 points over the course of 16 events.

Sophomore David Carter picked up the Big Red's lone win after claiming the triple jump title with a combined leap of 43'10". Freshmen Jake Coplin and James Dixie recorded top-5 finishes in the long jump. Coplin took second with a mark of 19'10.75", while Dixie was fifth with a jump of 18'5".

Freshman thrower Bryce Stricker also had a pair of top-5 performances. Stricker finished third in the shot put with a toss of 43'1.50", while his heave of 45'3" earned him fifth in the weight throw. Senior Drake Lohnes and junior Church Humphreys also scored in field events for DU. Lohnes was fourth in the high jump (5'0.25"), while Humphreys took fifth in the pole vault after clearing 10'11.75".

Sophomore Niall Clancey led a trio of milers with a second place finish after crossing the line in 4:29.66. Seniors Zach Cove and Patrick Dunn finished right behind Clancey with times of 4:38.32 and 4:42.39, respectively. Clancey also took fourth in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:05.33, while freshman Ben Foster was fifth in the event (2:06.83). Freshman Isaac Andrews posted a personal-best time of 7.40 in the 60-meter dash. Andrews' time was an eight hundredths of a second improvement on his previous PR. Sophomore Isaac Reed was fifth in the 60 hurdles after posting a time of 9.05.

In the distance events, junior Jeremy Bloomfield took third in the 3,000-meter run after checking in at 9:53.32. Freshman Ryan Seibert followed in fourth place with a time of 9:57.52. The freshman duo of Clayton Watters and Rhys Fitschen-Brown went four-five in the 5,000. Watters clocked in 16:54.83, while Fitschen-Brown turned in a time of 17:07.91.

The Big Red registered two second-place finishes in the relay events. The 4x200 grouping of Andrews, Alex Chin, Jack Ruddy and Carter posted a time of 1:35.02. Andrews and Ruddy also paired up with Ben Gibbs and Foster to post a runner-up performance in the 4x400 relay (3:35.40).

Wittenberg captured the team title with 186 points followed by second-place Denison. Wooster took third with 89 tallies, while Oberlin (70) and Kenyon (19) rounded out the team standings.

The Big Red will be back in action next Saturday when they host the Bob Shannon Invitational and the first day of the All-Ohio Combined events at the Mitchell Fieldhouse in Granville. The Bob Shannon Invite is scheduled to begin at 12 p.m.
