WESTERVILLE, Ohio – Capital University Men's Track & Field competed at the All-Ohio Championships hosted by Otterbein University on Saturday, picking up a host of top-five finishes and a win.

Senior jumper Logan Allison picked up another win in the long jump competition with a leap of 6.97 meters, almost a whole tenth of a meter further than the second-place competitor. In the triple jump, Allison narrowly missed out on another winning performance, instead settling for second with a mark of 14.31 meters.

Throwers Jason Coon and Josh Miller finished third and fourth in the shot put competition with throws of 16.11 meters and 15.17 meters, respectively. This is the first time this season that Coon did not win the shot put.

Derek Knabe turned in an inspired run in the one mile, a brisk 4.27.59 performance that earned him a fourth-place finish.

The 4x200-meter relay team of Nicholas Santos, Noah Meeker, Kyle Farley and Mason Trezise combined to earn a sixth-place finish, completing the relay in 1:33.27. Capital's other relay team, in the 4x400-meter race, placed fifth with a combined time of 3:37.46. That team was comprised of Santos, Knabe, Trezise and Corbin Brown.

In the 200-meter dash, Nicholas Santos placed ninth with a run of 23.14 seconds.

In the high jump, John Seman earned a top-ten finish with a jump of 1.86 meters, finishing eighth.

Colby Owen also earned an eighth-place finish in the weight throw with a toss of 15.60 meters.

As a team, Capital finished in seventh overall with 44 points. The team will be back in action next Friday and Saturday when it hosts the Rick Meindl Last Call Meet in The Capital Center.
