GRANVILLE, Ohio -- The Denison women's track and field team posted five victories en route to a second-place finish at the Denison University Lid-Lifter held at the Mitchell Fieldhouse on Saturday.

The Big Red's three national qualifiers from last spring combined for four of the team's five wins. Junior Arlesha Cospy got the ball rolling by winning the weight throw with a top mark of 47'11". Cospy went on to sweep the throwing events with a first-place showing in the shot put with a toss of 39'5.25". Junior Hannah Hall posted DU's second victory after successfully clearing 5'3.75" on her final attempt in the high jump. Sophomore All-American sprinter Ajai Brooks won the 200-meter dash with a winning time of 26.19. Brooks also took second in the 60-meter event with a time of 7.95.

Sophomore Anna Fash collected Denison's final win of the day in the 3,000-meter run after breaking the tape in 11:08.80. Classmate Alyssa Bahel followed Fash with a time of 11:14.67, while freshman Erin O'Connor took fourth after crossing the line in 11:21.55. Freshmen Sydney Lerda and Bryn Tomczak scored for DU in the 800 and 60 hurdles, respectively. Lerda was sixth in the 800 run with a time of 2:36.53, while Tomczak posted a personal-best time of 10.02 en route to a seventh-place showing. In the Big Red's final running event of the day, the 4x400 team of Brooks, Lerda, Sydney Chandler and Bren'et Muldrow placed sixth with a time of 4:30.60.

Senior Anne Lee and sophomore Mackenzie Mason rounded out the field-event scoring for Denison. Lee scored in both the triple and long jump events. The senior took third in the triple jump with a 34'mark, while her leap of 14'10.75" landed her in seventh place in the long jump. Mason finished fourth in the pole vault with a PR mark of 9'0.25". The sophomore moves into eighth on the Big Red's top performers list following the 3.50" improvement.

Division II West Virginia Wesleyan took home the team title with 166.50 points. Host Denison accumulated 93 points, 12 more tallies than third place California (Pa.). Wittenberg followed in fourth with 48 points, while Washington & Jefferson rounded out the top five in the team standings with 45 points.

The Big Red returns to action next Saturday (Jan. 28) when they travel to the College of Wooster for the Fighting Scots Invitational. Events are scheduled to begin at 12 p.m.
