The Ohio Bobcats Track and Field Team won six events at the Athens Open, led by Alexis Geiger’s performance in the long jump.

Geiger’s leap of 6.05m in the long jump could earn her a berth into the NCAA tournament and earned her an automatic bid to the MAC Outdoor Championships.

Danielle Winningham won the 400m dash in a time of 55.79, while Juli Accurso took the 1500m with a time of 4:53.99.

Karissa Conrad and Chanda Cuckler added to the event victories with wins in the 400m hurdles title and high jump, respectively. Cuckler won the high jump with a jump of 1.63m. Miranda Richardson rounded up the Bobcat wins, with her first victory of the season with a mark of 3.05m in the pole vault.

The Bobcats next event is at the MAC Outdoor Championships next week, May 9-11, in Akron, Ohio.
