Parrett three-peats at All-Ohio Championships

Posted: Updated:

The Men's Track and Field Team traveled to Ohio Wesleyan University to compete in the All-Ohio Division III Championships.  The Yellow Jackets finished with 24 points, which was good enough for a tenth place finish among the 19 schools that recorded points.

Joe Davis (Ontario, Ohio / Ontario), Troy Parrett (Cedarville, Ohio / Cedarville), and Anthony Nolfi (Akron, Ohio / Ravenna Southeast) each recorded points for the Yellow Jackets.

It was no surprise for anybody there to see Parrett finish first in the 800-meter dash.  It is the third year in a row that the junior has been crown the All-Ohio Division III Champ in the event.  Parrett did so in exciting fashion, edging out the runner-up by .01 with a winning time of 1:53.57.

Davis also picked up a win for the Yellow Jackets.  He won the 1,500-meter race with a time of 3:59.86.  The mark was Davis' best time in the event for his career.  The time was also the only 1,500 time that broke the four minute mark at the All-Ohio Championship.

The hammer throw also brought in another personal record.  Nolfi threw for a distance of 49.13 meters.  He bested his career mark by over a meter.  The throw also landed him in fifth place at the meet.

DC has a short week to get ready for its next meet, when the Yellow Jackets travel to Anderson on Thursday.  Meet time is set to begin at 2 p.m.
