All-Ohio Men's Results | All-Ohio Women's Results

Eric Dyer successfully defended his triple jump championship at the All-Ohio Championships Saturday, highlighting The College of Wooster’s track & field weekend. The Fighting Scots took part in two events, first a non-scoring tri-meet at Oberlin College on Friday and then the All-Ohio’s, which saw the Wooster men finish in 12th-place and the women 13th among a large field of competitors from across the Buckeye State.

Dyer, a junior, hit a mark of 45 feet, 7.25 inches, edging Muskingum College’s Demetrius Bailey (45 feet, 2.5 inches) for the title. Dyer exceeded his winning jump of 45 feet, 2.5 inches from last spring.

Also scoring at the All-Ohio meet on the men’s side were Bryan Albani, Julian Mangano, Josh Kime, and Jon Mathis. Albani crossed the line fourth in the 110-meter hurdles (15.17) and Mangano did the same for the Scots in the 800 meters (1:55.25), and they joined forces with Will Setliff and Matthew Solter for an eighth-place performance in the 4x400-meter relay (3:29.24). In the field, Kime produced the fifth-best mark in the shot put (47 feet, 4.25 inches) and Mathis was eighth in the discus (138 feet, 6 inches).

The Scots’ top women’s showings at the All-Ohio Championships saw KateLynn Riley finish as the runner-up in the 100-meter hurdles (15.50), Kayla Miller reach third-place in the triple jump (35 feet, 7.75 inches), and Ali Drushal take fourth in the javelin (109 feet, 11 inches). Also in the javelin, Katharina Kroll came in sixth (105 feet, 10 inches), while Elizabeth Wardrop tied for eighth in the high jump (4 feet, 10.5 inches).
