His time is currently 20th best among NCAA Division III runners this season. Marsh accounted for one-third of the Cardinals' 24 points during the meet.
Agbon Edomwonyi '16 (left side photo) had a season-best shot put of 47-9 3/4 to place fifth. Will Sawyer '16 (right side photo) was sixth in the pole vault. Wesleyan also got a sixth-place finish from the 4x100m relay of Luca Ameri '15, LaDarius Drew '15, Jack Pacelle '13 and James Dottin '13. Pacelle had an individual sixth-place clocking in the 400m.

Wesleyan sent a small contingent of athetes to Colby for the New England Division III meet Thurs.-Sat., May 2-4.
