Smutz also finished eighth in the discus with a mark of 141’0”. Jacob Frey (St. Paul, Minn./Roseville Area) rounded out the top-ten in the discus, throwing for 137’2”.

After the first five events of the decathlon, Owen (2727 points) and Kevin Adamik (Elmhurst, Ill./York Community) (2643 points) currently sit in fifth and sixth, respectively.

After the first day of competition, the Crusaders sit in fourth-place with 6 points. Action at the Horizon League Outdoor Championships resumes tomorrow at the Farmers National Bank Field in Youngstown, Ohio. Both live video and live stats will be available through ValpoAthletics.com.
