Jordan Wehner ’14, the lone Kenyon athlete at the North Coast Athletic Conference  (NCAC) Men’s Multi-Event Championship, placed eighth in the men’s decathlon April 26-27, held at Kenyon’s Wilder Track.

“It was fun to compete for my team and have them support me as I competed,” Wehner wrote in an email.

Wehner’s sixth-place pole vault effort was his highest of the decathlon.

Meanwhile, others ran at the Denison University Last Chance Meet to earn cuts for the NCAC Championships that begin Friday at Oberlin College and featured Sam Lagasse ’16 and Jenna Willet ’14, who are ranked first and fourth in the 10,000 meter run. Emma Levant ’16 placed second in the women’s 100-meter hurdles.

Lucas Herweyer ’15 placed third in the shot put and the discus. Hailey Schneider ’14 placed sixth in the hammer throw and seventh in the shot. Regan Fink ’14 was fourth in the javelin and 10th in the shot put.

Kye Duren ’16 and Alex Benthem de Grave ’16 placed fourth and tenth in the men’s 100 meter dash.
