CEDARVILLE – Senior Liz Delehanty was the top collegiate finisher in the pole vault as the Wilmington women’s track team finished sixth at the Cedarville Outdoor Collegiate All Comers meet Saturday. The meet was the final tune-up before the Ohio Athletic Conference championships.


She cleared the distance of 10-00.00 to earn the maximum 10 points for the Lady Quakers.

“(I was) satisfied with the performances of both the men and women this weekend at Cedarville,” said head coach Ron Combs. “We rested a lot of people in preparation of the OAC meet next weekend. The conditions were less than ideal so we are happy to have everyone relatively healthy going into the OAC meet.”

Sophomore Jenna Parlette (Miamisburg, OH/Miamisburg) and sophomore Tricia Steffen (Baltimore, OH/Liberty Union) each scored for Wilmington in two separate events. Parlette was fifth in the 1,500 with the time of 5:01.46 and was sixth in the 800 in the time of 2:35.24. Steffen scored in the same two events, finishing fourth in the 800 with a time of 2:31.86 and sixth in the 1,500 with a time of 5:06.44

Freshman Jadie Riewoldt (Morrow, OH/Little Miami) finished second in the high jump with the distance of 4-11.75 to finish the Wilmington scoring.
