WESTERVILLE, Ohio – Capital University's men's track and field team faced tough competition this weekend as they went head-to-head with the top prospects of NCAA Division III. Otterbein University served as host to the All-Ohio Championship, which was held at the Rike Center on Saturday afternoon. Capital took eighth in team standings with 32 points.
Junior Logan Allison (Gallipolis, Ohio/Galia Academy) shattered the school record in the 60-meter dash and placed first with a time of 6.95 seconds. The record was previously held by Travon Bodrick '15 (7.05). Allison edged out Mount Union's Louis Berry by 0.02 seconds for the win.
Allison also took on the long jump, finishing second with a mark of 7.09 meters (23-03.25). After steadily improving his personal best, he eclipsed it once again and in the process broke the school record of 7.06 meters that had stood since 1961 by Dave Scott.
He did not stop there as he wrapped up the day with a win in the triple jump (14.22m, 46-08.00), improving his personal record and creeping closer to the number one spot on the Capital top 10 list.
The 4x200-meter relay had a seventh-place finish in a time of 1:34.85 capturing some much needed points for Capital. The relay team lineup included senior Miguel Davalos (Dayton, Ohio/Archbishop Alter), junior Nicholas Santos (Annandale, Virginia/Falls Church), freshman Jonathan Skeens (Wheeling, West Virginia/ Wheeling Park), and freshman Trevor Collins (Powell, Ohio/Olentangy Liberty).
Junior Colby Owen (Perryville, Maryland/Perryville) nabbed two points for the Crusaders with a seventh-place finish in finals with a toss of 15.25 meters (50-00.50).
