Senior David Danhauer had a top-six national throw in the shot put Thursday in the Tomcat Twilight meet at O'Shaughnessy Stadium.

More than a dozen schools were represented, including scholarship programs Minnesota, Minnesota-Duluth and Concordia-St. Paul. No team scores were kept.

Tommie athletes were coming off a 12-day break from competition after last week's snow erased last weekend's meet.

Danhauer threw 54-2 in the shot put for second out of 27 entrants -- a top-10 all-time outdoor throw at St. Thomas and his career best outdoors. Danhauer threw 54-4 2-5 last February and went on to qualify for the NCAA indoor meet.

The Barrington, Ill., native also had a career-best toss in the discus as he placed fourth out of 43 entrants in 149-9.

Eric Holst took second in the hammer throw (188-8) and second in the discus (157-2). His discus throw is a career best and ranks in the top 25 in D-III. His season best of 191-0 in the hammer ranks in the top 12 nationally.

Gage O'Brien took third in the shot put (51-9 1-4) with a top-20 national mark, and also placed fourth in the hammer.

Freshman Eric Douville won the 200 dash (21.81) in a top-30 national time. He also took second in the 100 dash (11.81) and anchored the Toms' second-place 4x100 relay in 42.82 with Kaleb Keener, Nick Spann and Conor White.

Soph Jake Kelly took second in the high jump (6-4 3-4) and fourth in the triple jump (44-6).

Junior Karl Wachter took second in the 5,000 in 15:02 -- six seconds behind winner Hamza Ali of the Minnesota Gophers.

St. Thomas' hurdlers were sharp with 2-3-4 finishes in each race. In the 110s, Erik Anderson (15.32), Jonah Schoenfelder (15.32) and Austin Coates (15.70) placed 2-3-4. In th e400

hurdles, Coates (56.47), Schoenfelder (56.94) and Anderson (59.13) placed 2-3-4.

In the 800, Brian Carl (1:58.07) and Mason Thedens (1:58.23) placed 4-5. Parker Rosenau took eighth in the 1,500 (4:01.68). In the 400 dash, Carol Kozlowski took ninth in 51.90.
