ADA, Ohio – Capital University Women's Track & Field returned to the track on Saturday for the second day of the Ohio Athletic Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships and again got an All-OAC honoree.

Sophomore Taylor Manivanh's third-place jump of 11.07 meters in the triple jump earned her second All-OAC place of the championships after also placing third in the long jump on Friday. Manivanh (Grove City, Ohio/Central Crossing) started the competition with a mark of 10.69 meters and then fouled her second attempt. Her third jump went for 11.07 meters and her fourth was 10.98 meters before fouling her fifth and sixth tries.

Senior sprinter Hunter Mouser (London, Ohio/London) placed sixth in the 200-meter dash finals with a time of 26.29 seconds. In the 400-meter dash finals, Mouser's mark of 59.34 seconds earned her fourth.

Junior Larkin Joseph (New Philadelphia, Ohio/New Philadelphia) also just missed out on an All-OAC spot with a fourth-place finish in the 800-meter race with a time of 2;20.34. In the 100-meter hurdles final, Emily Hilt's (Delaware, Ohio/Buckeye Valley) time of 15.87 seconds was good enough for fourth as well.

The Crusaders placed seventh in the conference as a team with 37 points. Ohio Northern University won the conference title with 166 points.

The Crusaders will look to further improve their marks on Thursday and Friday, May 3-4 at the Toledo Last Chance hosted by the University of Toledo.
