Deterding Wins Second-Straight Carol Robinson Winter Pentathlon

Final Results 

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Trailing by seven points heading into the final event, junior Adam Deterding posted a first-place finish in the 1,000 meter run to win his second-straight Carol Robinson Pentathlon with 3,538 points in Ahearn Field House on Friday. 

Former Wildcat Devin Dick, competing in his first competition in two years, finished the meet in second place with a total score of 3,404 points. Sophomore Max Estill finished in fourth place with a score of 3,113 points. 

“It was what I expected it to be,” head coach Cliff Rovelto said. “We have done very little technical work. Devin had a couple of years off so he is just coming back and the other two guys did fine. For where we are in training, I thought we did fine.”

Deterding came out strong in the 60 meter hurdles, taking first place in the event with a time of 8.60. 

After finishing in second in the 60 meter hurdles, Dick won in long jump and shot put with a jump of 6.46m/21-02.5 and a throw of 12.40m/40-08.25, respectively. 

However, Deterding finished the meet strong with a 1.88m/6-02 leap in high jump and a time of 2:57.68 in the 1,000 meter run to take the title. 

The Wildcats return to action on Saturday as it hosts the K-State Winter Invitational in Ahearn Field House. Field events begin at 11 a.m., followed by track events at 2 p.m. The meet is free to the public.
