MIAC Decathlon Recap

Decathlon Newcomer David Pettit Wows 'Em at MIAC Championships! 
NORTHFIELD-- Let the other competitors in the MIAC decathlon know that invisible man that snuck up on all the athletes in the first day of competition wears maroon and gold and goes by the name David Pettit.

Pettit, competing in his first full-fledge decathlon in his life, put up season-best marks in three of the first five events and currently stands in third place after day one of the championship competition. He has 3,005 points after the first five events, which is 445 points behind day-one leader Evan Sundquist of St. Olaf. Pettit is only eight points ahead of fourth-place competitor Jered Hokenson of Gustavus. 

Concordia freshman Rocky Jantzen finished the first day of competition in 11th place with 2,465 points.

The first day of the event started uneventful for Pettit as he ran a 11.98 in the 100 meters. That time was slightly slower than the 11.41 he ran at NDSU earlier in the year. The second event continued the trend of solid, but not spectacular performances for Pettit. Having jumped 20-1.75 in the long jump at NDSU, he put up a mark of 19-0.50 in the long jump in the 2005 conference decathlon. 

His solid performances suddenly gave way to "you've got to be kidding me" feats. In the third event, the shot put, he posted a distance of 28-1.75. Not spectacular in itself, but considering it was almost three feet farther than he has ever thrown it in his life, it becomes a little more special. Next came the high jump, one of Pettit's better events in the competition. Entering the meet, his season-best was 6-0.00. On Thursday, he cleared 6-2.75 to finish second among all competitors.

He saved his best jaw-dropping performance for last. In the 400 meters, an event that he is not on record as having ever run in his life, he bolted to a52.79. That time was amazingly the second-best in the competition.

Only time will tell if Pettit can continue his remarkable ascent among the top athletes in the conference. The final five events should be a test of perseverance for the Cobber sophomore. The day will start out in familiar territory with the 110-meter hurdles but then take a turn on the dark side as the final four events are not among Pettit's list of experienced events.

The second event on day two is the discus, followed by the pole vault, then the javelin and finally the 1500 meters. Pettit has thrown the discus only one other time in a competitive meet, he has only cleared a paltry 9-0 in the pole vault, has never put up a distance in the javelin and has no record of ever having run in the 1500 meters.

If Pettit can finish in the top five of the competition at the end of the second day, it will be one of the greatest feats of the year by any Cobber athlete.

All five events on day two will be held at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn. The first event of the day gets under way at 10:00am.
