Salukombo named NCAC Runner of the Week

Denison senior Dee Salukombo was named North Coast Athletic Conference Runner of the Week after a strong showing at the All-Ohio Championship last Friday in Cedarville.

Salukombo placed second among NCAA Division III runners and sixth in the overall standings at the All-Ohio Intercollegiate Championships.  His sixth-place finish marked his best finish at the All-Ohio meet.  The senior completed the eight-kilometer race in 25:18.24.  As a team, the Big Red finished 12th in the Division III standings and 24th in the overall standings.

The Big Red returns to action on Oct. 14 when they travel to Wilmington, Ohio to compete in the Wilmington Invitational.
