Chrapczynski sets school record in the pentathlon

Amherst’s Shawn Chrapczynski set a new Oberlin College record that highlighted the day for Oberlin at the NCAC Indoor Pentathlon.

Chrapczynski totaled 3,105 points on the day and was just two points back of Ohio Wesleyan’s Andrew Diehl, who won the event with 3,107 total tallies. Chrapczynski picked up eight critical team points for the Yeomen, which will go a long way in determining their finish at the NCAC Championships next week.

The pentathlon consisted of one athlete competing in the 1,000 meters, 55-meter hurdles, high jump, long jump and shot put. Chrapczynski’s best performances came in the long jump, which he won with a mark of 21-01.50, and the 1,000 meters where he paced second in 2:51.12.

"This was a great way to kickoff the conference championships," Head Coach Ray Appenheimer said. "Shawn was just awesome today and he truly displayed his great athletic ability."
