The Wilmington College women’s indoor track team is currently ninth with 12 points after senior Liz Delehanty (Euclid, OH/Villa Angela-St. Joseph) nearly won the pole vault.

Delehanty cleared a career-best distance of 11-00.25 without a miss. She missed her three attempts of 11-04.25.

On her final attempt, Otterbein’s Jordan Long cleared the distance to win the event. If Long had missed, Delehanty would have earned the championship because of less misses. 

The men’s distance medley relay team of  juniors Brad Kline (Circleville, OH/Circleville), Nate Godby (Goshen, OH/Goshen) and Alek Erwin (Springfield, OH/Northeastern) and sophomore Jake Simpkins (Germantown, OH/Valley View) 
smashed the school record by seven second with a mark of 10:23.51 on the first day of the Ohio Athletic Conference championships. They finished third to earn All-OAC honors.

The Quakers are sitting in seventh place of the nine-team championships.

Senior Mason Metts (Pomeroy, OH/Meigs) finished third in the weight throw with a toss of 55-05.75, while Rickey Shafer added a point by finishing eighth in the pole vault clearing the distance of 14-02.50.
