ADA, Ohio – Capital University Men's Track & Field completed the Ohio Athletics Conference Championships hosted by Ohio Northern University on Saturday and placed 7th out of 10 teams with 23 points. Two Crusaders though earned All-OAC honors by placing in the top three in their respective events.

Capital's highest finisher was sophomore Josh Miller who earned a second-place finish in the shot put. Miller's best throw of the day traveled 15.98 meters, the fourth-best throw in program history. He placed seventh in yesterday's weight throw competition.

Senior jumper John Seman also earned his place on the podium in the high jump. Seman cleared 1.90 meters to tie for second.

In the 800-meter run, freshman Grant Ward finished 14th. The 4x200-meter relay team placed ninth and the 4x400-meter team placed eighth.
