EUGENE, Ore. – Dartmouth junior Benjamin Ose sits 20th after one day of competition in the decathlon at the 2018 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field National Championship.

Ose and the rest of the field are competing inside Oregon’s historic Hayward Field — commonly referred to as TrackTown USA — having finished five of the 10 events on Wednesday.

The junior was 17th in the first event of the day, crossing the line in 11.01 in the 100m. He would go on to take 19th in the long jump (6.96m), 24th in the shot put (11.77m), 22nd in the high jump (1.80m) and capped his Wednesday by claiming 16th in the 400m (50.39) which began at nearly 10 p.m. on the East Coast.

Overall, Ose earned 3678 points on the meet’s opening day.

Ose will have a chance for more points and to move up in the standings Thursday when he competes in the 110m hurdles, discus, pole vault and javelin before wrapping up the 10-discipline event in the 1500m.

Portions of Thursday’s events will be carried live on ESPN2.
