DAY ONE RESULTS
CINCINNATI, Ohio – Behind a school-record performance from junior Donyelle Brown, the Ohio University women’s track & field team sits in second place after day one action at the All-Ohio Championships.
The Bobcats were led by Brown’s outstanding performance, as the Reynoldsburg, Ohio, native notched a 56.89m mark in the hammer throw to break the previous mark of 56.79m, set by Emily Amendola in 2009. Brown now holds the school record in the hammer throw (outdoor) and wieght throw (indoor). The throw earned Brown a fifth-place finish and picked up four points for the Bobcats.
Sophomore Krista Roehlig (Uniontown, Ohio) earned eight points for the ‘Cats with a solid second-place finish in the 10000m run. Roehlig crossed the finish line in a time of 37:33.78.
In the 3000m steeplechase, a pair of Bobcats claimed top-3 finishes to earn Ohio 14 points in the event. Sophomore Kayla Scott (Canal Winchester, Ohio) finished second in a time of 11:11.88, while fellow sophomore Allison Roeth (Houston, Ohio) claimed third in a personal-best time of 11:34.51.
The majority of the events at the All-Ohio Championships will be contested tomorrow, beginning at 9 a.m. at Cincinnati’s Gettler Stadium.
