Seven Baker athletes took first-place honors in the Ottawa University Invitational Saturday. The BU track and field teams competed at the meet along with seven other schools.

On the women’s side, three BU performers finished first in their events. Junior Kendall Holloman placed in the pole vault at 3.20 meters, sophomore Brenda McCollum in the 5,000-meter race walk with a time of 27 minutes 12 seconds, and sophomore Jordan Miller in the discus with a throw of 38.43 meters. Miller also placed third in hammer throw and fifth in shot put.

Four BU men placed first in the meet: junior Corey Matteson in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 10:05, junior Matt Bush in the pole vault at 4.27 meters, sophomore Nick Patterson in the javelin throw at 46.87 meters, and freshman Daniel Rivera in the 5,000-meter race walk.
