DELAWARE, OHIO -- The Defiance College women's track and field team traveled to Ohio Wesleyan University for the Marv Frye Invitational on Friday and Saturday for a non-scoring meet.

Sophomore Madi Bowman (Eaton) also finished sixth with a throw of 35.29 meters (115 feet, 9 inches). 

Williams returned with another solid performance on Saturday, placing second in the discus with a throw of 38.09 meters (125 feet), with Bowman coming in seventh with a throw of 33.54 meters (110 feet).

Freshman Meagan Trimpey (Bowling Green) got back on the right track in pole vault on Saturday with a vault of 2.90 meters (9 feet, 6.25 inches), which was good enough for an eighth-place finish and moved her into a tie for fifth place on the school's all-time list.
